Battlerite Royale Free-to-Play Launch Trailer Released

Stunlock Studios reveals details about the BIG PATCH™ for the Battlerite universe

Skövde, Sweden - February 12th, 2019 - Today Stunlock Studios released the launch trailer for the anticipated MOBA and battle royale mash-up, Battlerite Royale, ahead of its free-to-play Steam launch on February 19th. The Battlerite Royale launch will coincide with a major update for the whole franchise called the BIG PATCH™, which brings Battle Season 1, map changes, items, Champions and much more.

“After months of hard work we are now ready to reveal details about the BIG PATCH that will soon unveil a host of goodies for both Arena and Royale players,” said Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios. “We are also excited to deliver a brand new trailer in celebration of the upcoming Battlerite Royale free-to-play launch to give you taste of what’s to come!”

The BIG PATCH™ kicks off with the Battle Pass system, giving players an opportunity to opt for the Free Pass or upgrade it to the Premium Pass to unlock more exclusive cosmetics. Battle Season 1 will reset seasons and leaderboards in both games and newly gained season levels will carry over between the two titles.

In addition to the free-to-play launch, Battlerite Royale players will encounter two new map areas, three new Champions, including Oldur, who bends time and space, Taya, who summons tornados, and Pearl, who unleashes the ocean’s fury onto her opponents, as well as the Legendary Adventure Pack 2, available as a DLC purchase.

For Battlerite 2.0, the patch will introduce a variety of new features starting with Turbo Speed, which will make Champions faster and at the same time lower their health, giving front stage to juking and mindgames as a recipe for victory. The Armory feature will allow players to strategically choose one to three items for every round, to gain an edge on their opponents. Finally, as an ally dies, the Overload ability will restore player’s health and strengthen the attack while scaling down on the defence. To wrap it all up, the All Champions Pack price will be reduced from $29,99 to $19,99.

“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,” said Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “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.”

Battlerite Royale is a hybrid between an Action MOBA and a Battle Royale game based on the critically acclaimed arena brawler Battlerite. Featuring combat from a top-down perspective, the game also offers a unique take on the Royale genre by providing a wide range of ability-based Champions to pick from, each with unique skills and playstyles.

In celebration of the launch, Stunlock Studios promises a huge Battlerite Royale content update that will be announced in the coming weeks along with a major update to the original Battlerite game to be released simultaneously. A great opportunity to try the MOBA royale game for free!
