Battlerite Royale entered Early Access on Steam yesterday and just a few hours later, found itself at #1 on Steam’s Global Top Seller List.
While the MOBA and battle royale mash-up currently runs for $19.99/€19.99, they do plan a full free-to-play commercial release some time in 2019. Regardless, players were so eager to leap from the backs of their trusted wyverns as one of the 20 available Champions, revamped especially for Battlerite Royale, seeking out collectibles that allow them to take out everybody and leave themselves as last one standing that it finds itself right there at the top. No easy feat, particularly for a battle royale title in the current market.
“We’ve taken MOBA and battle royale and blended the best of both worlds to create something different and worthy of all MOBA fans,” says Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “Featuring a third person perspective, unique combat, and MOBA elements, Battlerite Royale is a truly unique take on the BR genre. The Early Access version not only plays smoothly, but is already visually captivating, and so we look forward to players joining us on this journey in bringing Battlerite Royale to its complete release next year.”
