Stunlock Studios today released the first screenshots of its upcoming Battle Royale game mode, Battlerite Royale, set to launch on Steam in July 2018. Combining an Action MOBA/Arena Brawler and Battle Royale survival gameplay, the new mode throws 20 players into a cutthroat island deathmatch, played “Free For All” or as a duo from a top-down perspective.
Players begin the match with their Champions stripped off of their abilities so they must explore the map in order to find abilities, equipment, and a variety of exciting consumables. The goal is to fight other players, steal their loot, power up and, ultimately, be the last one standing.
Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios, said:
“In a way, Battlerite already offered a number of core Battle Royale elements, such as elimination and the ‘Death Vortex’. Scaling up this experience was something that came to us quite naturally. We wanted to stay true to Battlerite’s action-packed gameplay while giving our players a fresh experience beyond the arena, with the added perk of exploration.”
