Stunlock Studios today announced that its action-packed MOBA and Battle Royale mash-up, Battlerite Royale, will move out of Steam Early Access into a highly anticipated free-to-play commercial launch on February 19th. Battlerite Royale is a hybrid between an Action MOBA and a Battle Royale game based on the critically acclaimed arena brawler Battlerite.
Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios, said:
“Upon our community request to release the game as soon as possible, we are pumped to announce that Battlerite Royale’s free-to-play launch now has a confirmed date. Thank you to everyone who has been participating in the beta and giving us your feedback. We are now super excited to deliver the complete experience – a MOBA Royale – free for everyone to play. The game launches together with a massive update including several surprises to look forward to.”
Battlerite Royale features combat from a top-down perspective, and promises to offer a unique take on the Royale genre by providing a wide range of ability-based Champions to pick from, each with unique skills and playstyles.
In Battlerite Royale players skydive from the back of a wyvern and land on Talon Island to explore the lush and colourful surroundings, stumbling upon a variety of items and intriguing consumables such as barrel disques, rocket boots, and bear traps. During fast-paced, cutthroat matches players rely on vigilance and quick wits, utilizing treasured collectibles to overthrow opposing players, grab their loot, and ultimately be the last one standing.
