If a player dies in the game, they die in real life. Sound familiar? While the tagline might be suspiciously similar, the teaser for Tencent’s new battle royale game does not have a single black swordsman in sight. After releasing an official launch trailer at the end of February, footage of the first closed beta test has appeared online, and it looks stunning.
Ring of Elysium is a brand new online battle arena game, once again following in the footsteps of the seminal PUBG. Focusing on realistic combat, Ring of Elysium does not provide poultry sustenance for survivors. Instead, this mysterious VR environment sets a group of kidnapped participants against each other in a fight to the death. It features realistic weather, fantastic looking terrain, and the sort of detail that makes other arena games look a little half-baked. The brand new footage comes from Thailand’s closed testing phase and shows off the stunning terrain, weather, and physics effects that players can look forward to in this free to play competition.
We do not know if this is coming westward quite yet, but if you always thought that Sword Art Online wasn’t the same without the sound of an AK-47, then keep an eye on the official website for more information.
