Battlerite is the latest in a LONG list of games to try Battle Royale in order to attract a larger user base. One could argue it was their “Battlerite” to try this mode out. The new mode is called Battlerite Battle Royale and according to our plug, it will throw up to 20 players into a free for all deathmatch on a new map that is 20x the size of the games regular maps.
If you’re unfamiliar with Battlerite just know it’s a free to play game that removes all the MOBA elements from over the top MOBA’s and just leaves the fighting aspect. What you get is an action game that’s all about teamwork and timing. So why did they choose to go the Battle Royale route? According to 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.”
I think I’ll pass, but I’m sure someone out there will appreciate this addition to the game. Check out Battlerite Sage’s commentary on the news. He’s big in the community and has a better perspective than I.
