Stunlock Studios has confirmed that Battlerite Royale will leave early access very soon.
Battlerite Royale is the battle-royale MOBA hybrid that was spun out of Stunlock Studios’ popular top-down PC brawler, Battlerite. Jumping on the bandwagon for all things one vs. many – and in the footsteps of a certain retooled game from Epic – the swiftly rejigged version of Battlerite has been in Steam Early access since September, 2018, priced at $19.99/£17.99.
Following a successful beta period, the game will leave early access, and get an official release on February 19, 2019. At the same time it will become a free-to-play game.
In a statement on the Stunlock Studios website, game director Peter Ilves says:
“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. 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.”
Here’s a look at the game in action.
The original Battlerite remains available – and is also free-to-play – as a separate title on Steam.
