I promise, I’m not being intentionally vague in that headline regarding the Realm Royale console beta launch date. That’s literally the best information the announcement provided; the fantasy-based battle royale shooter is starting its beta on consoles next week.
At some point next week, players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will get their opportunity to battle royally in 100-player fights to the death. Entry to the beta will require a key, which sounds about as simple as signing up on the game’s website., so perhaps it’s safer to call it a soft launch than beta. Who knows anymore, honestly.
“Since Realm Royale first released on PC, the top three questions on social media have been ‘Console?,’ ‘PS4?,’ and ‘Xbox?’,” remarked executive producer Rory Newburgh. “We understand our community wants Realm Royale on console, and we’re thrilled to announce console closed beta testing starts next week.”
As is often the way of announcements like this, there’s a trailer full of hype attached which can be seen below.
As loaded as the battle royale scene overall is, the console market for same doesn’t seem quite as crowded, so the arrival of Realm Royale to PS4 and XB1 could indeed be a good thing. In any case, we hope that fans of the game are looking forward to its console iteration.
