Battlerite Royale Release Date Revealed!

Diablo meets Fortnite in one of the world’s first MOBA Battle Royale games, Coming September 26 to Steam Early Access

Skövde, Sweden — September 6th, 2018 — Stunlock Studios’ highly anticipated standalone Battlerite spin-off Battlerite Royale is slated to launch on Steam Early Access on September 26 with a $19.99/19.99€ price tag. Pushing the genre’s boundaries beyond the traditional concept, Battlerite Royale is one of the first top-down action MOBA battle royale games released on Steam, and can be played solo or with a friend.

“Our take on the genre differs a lot from the FPS Battle Royale games out there. Battlerite has always been about arcade-like MOBA action, and we want to stay true to the core of it while scaling up the experience and adding new exciting elements,” says Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios. “With 20 different classes to pick from, a bird’s eye viewpoint and a unique combat system, we are confident that we will stand out in this crowded market. This is not only the Battle Royale game all MOBA players have been waiting for, it’s a treat for any BR gamer who wants a fresh take on the genre.”

Stunlock Studios today released a community FAQ with more details about the game:https://blog.battlerite.com/battlerite-royale-faq/
In Battlerite Royale players skydive from the back of a wyvern and land on Talon Island to explore the lush and colourful surroundings, finding 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 to utilize the treasured collectibles and overthrow opposing players, grab their loot and ultimately be the last one standing. Victory depends on factors such as players’ skill, map awareness and a sliver of luck.

The Early Access launch of Battlerite Royale will feature 20 different Champions to choose from, each with unique fighting styles, so even the most demanding players will find the right fit for their own play style. The signature Battlerite combat and input system will be familiar for arena veterans, though all Champions have been revamped for Battlerite Royale.

Battlerite Royale Island Map Revealed

Stunlock Studios revealed today the first concept artwork showcasing the island map for Battlerite Royale, their anticipated game mode coming to Steam in July 2018. Talon Island, as the map is named, is 30 times larger than a standard arena mode map and is divided into several different areas like the town of Anvilfall, the Glimmering Woods, the Starlight Oasis, and the Ancient Tomb.

Heavily entwined in the lore of Battlerite, Talon Island is located in the Great River Valley of Daharin, the home of Uric “The Unwavering Light”. Stunlock Studios has partnered with the talented lore writer Christopher Harrow to flesh out the game universe and plan to reveal more details on the Battlerite world further down the line.  

The studio is working on varied and colourful landscapes in order to create a feeling of adventure and exploration to balance out the very battle-oriented gameplay. Players can expect to come across island locations such as ancient tombs, wastelands, abandoned castles, and much more. Talon Island awaits!

BATTLERITE ROYALE – FIRST SCREENSHOTS REVEALED

Stunlock Studios today released a new developer update along with the first screenshots of their 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.

“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,” said Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “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.”

The Battlerite Royale announcement last week created a lot of buzz on social media with gaming and eSports celebrities such as Lirik, GiantWaffle, Dyrus, Scarra, Siv and Myth joining in on the discussions. Read more on the thoughts behind Battlerite Royale in Stunlock Studios’ latest dev update: https://blog.battlerite.com/dev-update-may-9th/

Since the launch of Battlerite, more than 4 million unique players have tried their luck in the arena, shooting Battlerite up to the top of the ‘top selling’ free-to-play games on Steam on several occasions.

BATTLERITE: BATTLE ROYALE MODE ANNOUNCED

Skövde, Sweden – May 3, 2018 – In search for a MOBA-like Battle Royale game? Well, look no further, as Stunlock Studios today revealed the first details of Battlerite Royale, a combination of an Action MOBA/Arena Brawler and the Battle Royale survival gameplay. Featuring spectacular fantasy landscapes on a map 30 times larger than the standard arena mode map, Battlerite Royale throws 20 players into a cutthroat island deathmatch, played “Free For All” or as a duo.

“With a top-down Battle Royale mode we’ve set out to bring the ultimate survival experience to Action RPG and MOBA players.” said Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios. “We want to give players the excitement of a Diablo-esque exploration experience combined with the character variation of a MOBA and the thrill of a survival game. That said, I think anyone who’s looking for a fresh and different take on the Battle Royale genre will have a blast.”

Battlerite Royale is played in a top-down perspective using WASD controls and victory depends on factors such as players’ skill, map awareness, situational builds, and a sliver of luck. During fast-paced 10-minute matches players explore the map in order to find a variety of items, fight other players to grab their loot, and, ultimately, be the last one standing on the island.
