Battlerite update 1.5 is going live today! Stunlock Studios unleashes Ulric, the Unwavering Light, Battlerite’s new Paladin champion, today, as well as announces the return of Bakko’s Egg Brawl as part of the Spring Chicken Bundle.
With a slew of divine abilities including Hammer of Justice, Holy Light, and Aegis of Divinity, the latest brawler in Battlerite’s Champion roster boosts team defences by healing and shielding allies while providing fierce melee support. Spreading the word of the Light and demonstrating the primacy of the True Path, Ulric, the Unwavering Light reigns down holy justice on the Battlerite arena today!
Additionally, as part of Battlerite update 1.5, Bakko’s Egg Brawl replaces Duel for a clucking good battle. Play as Bakko with your team of other Bakkos and hunt for magical eggs hidden around the Arena. Throw them at your enemies and discover a variety of custom Battlerites in this wacky, chaotic game mode. Winning 15 Rounds of Bakko’s Egg Brawl rewards the Golden Rooster Chest, which contains the Golden Rooster and two random Rare items. The old system of Battlerites (choosing one per round) has returned for this mode. So gather your brood together and claim your prize before April 11th!
