Stunlock Studios announced today that its competitive, action-packed, PvP arena brawler Battlerite will finally launch as a free-to-play title in November after selling over a million early-access copies. Over the coming months several big updates and a lot of new content will flow in.
September: Free week and Halloween content
Battlerite will hold a Free week session running from September 25 to October 1st. That also gives you a chance to try Battlerite’s Halloween Event which starts September 29 and stretches over five weeks. “Players can expect a spooky Halloween theme with unique Halloween weapons for all champions, creepy avatars and four brand new legendary outfits.”
Throughout the Free Week, Battlerite will be on sale by 50% on Steam Early Access for $9.98, €9,98, £7,49.
October: Overhaul Patch
The Pre-launch Patch will change the gameplay to a great extent with loadouts going up to five battlerites each and loadout selection occurring before you enter the arena. Round-based tiers have also been removed and all battlerites are now active from the start. New Battlerites have been added, some have been replaced and many have been re-balanced to fit this new system.
Other changes include a fresh new look to the Battlerite menus to ensure cross-platform consistency and a new mode yet to be detailed.
November: Free-to-Play Release
Battlerite goes Free-To-Play on November 8. To celebrate the official release of Battlerite, a mysterious new champion and 200 new items to be found in chests will be included such as rare weapons, skins, poses, and legendary color variations available in the launch patch.
