Here’s your first look at the top-down brawler’s upcoming Battle Royale map.
Stunlock Studios has released the first image of Battlerite’s Battle Royale Map in its latest developer update, coming with the new mode “this summer.”
The post from Stunlock Studios’ art developer Johan Aronson shows off some early concept art of the Talon Island map. The island is 30 times larger than Battlerite’s standard arena map and contains a number of different areas: Anvilfall, the Glimmering Woods, the Starlight Oasis, and the Ancient Tomb. Players will be able to enter many of the building and structures they see around the map to search for loot.
In addition to the concept art, the post also hints that Talon Island’s larger, more adventure-like structure will allow the team to focus more on the lore of Battlerite’s characters. Stunlock says it’s working with writer Christopher Harrow to tell new stories involving the game’s champions that it hasn’t been able to communicate in the past.
Stunlock recently announced it was working on the mode, called Battlerite Royale, which will retain the free-to-play MOBA’s top-down perspective. The mode will support free-for-all and duos, with support for up to 20 players.
