New dev post talks about the details of Battlerite Royale

Battlerite Battle Royale

If you recall the announcement of Battlerite Royale, you surely remember that Stunlock Studios wasn't exactly big on details. Now, a new dev blog post spills the beans and reveals three screenshots of this game mode.

First of all, the team revealed why they decided to create this mode for Battlerite. No, it wasn't because Epic Games was showering in money with Fortnite Battle Royale, of course not. It was due to the studio's past experience with free-for-all types of games, something that could be spotted in Bloodline Champions and Dead Island: Epidemic. A short list was compiled to see how they could reuse the elements that make Battlerite special in a “different yet familiar Battlerite experience”: things such as great small-scale combat, a wide variety of Champions, the Death Vortex and short, fun matches, among other things.

Battlerite Royale is a free-for-all elimination mode for 20 players in solo or duo on one big map. You start the match with your Champion stripped of his abilities, and it's up to you to explore the map and retrieve them, as well as equipment and consumables. The idea is to fight other players, steal their loot and be the one left standing, with the matches lasting for about 10 minutes. The island map is 30 times bigger than Sky Ring and contains areas such as villages, lush forests, dark tombs, and temple ruins.

You can read more about the Battlerite Royale mode on the dev post and know that they're shooting for a July 2018 launch. Here are the first three screens.
