Stunlock Studios today announced that the free-to-play launch date of Battlerite Royale on Steam PC has been set to February 19th, 2019. They also teased fans with talks of huge updates for both Battlerite games, to be released simultaneously as a way to boost their synergy.
Free-to-Play Release of Battlerite Royale
The Battle Royale spin-off of Battlerite was released as a standalone Early Access title in September 2018, much to the bitter surprise of many Battlerite fans, who feared the original game would lose momentum as a result of resources being transferred elsewhere, let alone the asking price (20 dollars) for a game that could have simply remained a mode inside Battlerite. That said, Stunlock Studios cited technical reasons for making the mode a different game, and made it clear from the start that the new game would become free-to-play in 2019. Now just four months later, here we are:
“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.”
Major updates planned for both games
In celebration of the launch, Stunlock Studios also announced that Battlerite Royale will receive a huge content update that will be announced in the coming weeks, and that the original Battlerite game will also receive a major update simultaneously, expanding the Battlerte universe and boosting synergy between the two games. A great opportunity to try the MOBA royale game for free!
