May the wings of valor guide us out of Early Access. That’s right, developer Stunlock Studios has announced that the MOBA meets battle royale hybrid, Battlerite Royale, is set to go Free To Play on February 19. According to Peter Ilves, Game Directory at Stunlock Studios:
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.
Trade in your cargo plane or tricked out school bus and launch yourself into the fantastical world of Talon Island from the back of a mystical wyvern. Whether going it alone or with a friend, from the second you slam into the ground (no glider needed) you will explore, loot, and kill your way to victory. Staying true to its roots, Battlerite Royale will retain the top down action combat of arena brawler Battlerite, but this time around you’ll be fighting for your life on a map 30 times larger than any of the arenas from the MOBA. The cast of Champions is back as well, complete with their unique abilities and playstyle, ensuring a varied experience each match.
In celebration of the launch date announcement, Stardock Studios is promising an upcoming simultaneous content update for both games. For those who can’t wait for the F2P launch on the 19th to start honing their skills, check out our Early Access review, then head on over to Steam and join in on the Early Access mayhem now.
About Battlerite Royale
In Battlerite Royale players skydive from the back of a wyvern and land on Talon Island to explore the lush and colorful 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.
