About Battlerite Royale
In Battlerite Royale, players skydive from the back of a gigantic dragon to land on Talon Island and begin exploring the lush and colourful surroundings. During fast-paced matches players roam a map 30 times larger than a standard Battlerite arena map in order to find a variety of items and consumables, fight other players to grab their loot, and ultimately be the last one standing on the island. There will be several Champions to choose from, each with their own unique fighting style. The signature Battlerite combat and input system remain unchanged, though all Champions have been optimized for Battlerite Royale.
“Early on in Battlerite Royale’s development we noticed how difficult it was to align the battle royale theme with the arena mode and still ensuring the genre and gameplay to work together,” said Johan Ilves, Marketing Director at Stunlock Studios. “Battlerite Royale has become a significantly different experience and we are now separating the games so that each of them can flourish in their own right.”
The signature Battlerite combat and input system is unchanged, though all Champions have been fully revised for Royale. Lethality needed to be increased as players need to be eliminated at a certain pace throughout the course of a match. This meant that we had to balance out defensive mechanics, in particular healing, shields, and crowd control. Tackling Support Champions has been quite challenging, as their role is to prolong and defend themselves and their allies.
