Cuisine Royale is the goofy reskin the battle royale genre deserves

Be careful what you wish for! Apparently, Gaijin (you know it from WarThunder) ran an April Fools’ day joke mode for online shooter Enlisted that proved so popular that the company spun it out into a standalone battle royale game. But this one takes the PUBG frying pan and runs with it. Literally.

Cuisine Royale is an all-kitchen-warfare Battle Royale game with the most honest system for Loot Boxes ever,” the devs write. “Dinnerware will finally be able to show off its true potential: Use a colander as head protection, equip a wok as a formidable breastplate, or strap on a massive waffle maker to be protected even against the largest calibers of weapons.”

Gaijin says the game will start off free-to-play and will “probably will become paid later to cover servers maintenance costs.” It’s also promising “the most honest system for loot boxes,” with free-to-open, fully transparent boxes “scattered around the battlefield.”

MJ has already vowed to play this glorious monstrosity later this week, so stay tuned!

Is this supposed to be a PUBG parody? Because if so, it’s a poor (also lazy) attempt.
Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is a better parody.

BUT! This game looks so much better and runs alot better than PUBG.

I might give it a try just for the halibut.

I could waffle on about how I have no steak in these sort of games but I will savoy you some time and leaf right after I call a cabbage to whisk me away. Lettuce hope that it arrives spoon

A battle royale game with meaty gameplay and isn’t trying to milk its playerbase? It’s about thyme!

CliffyB should get aload of this: This would have been the way to run his campy 80s PubG knockoff– lighthearted, straightfoward and lacking all desperation and negative vibes while promoting it.

Uh.. Radical Heights was lighthearted and straightforward? It didn’t come off as desperate at all with how the game was barely monetized. There were no negative vibes either, so I don’t really get where you’re getting that beyond being a hindsight hero. There was like one tweet where Cliff spoke out at Epic for taking his employees or whatever and that was about it.

They missed a trick here, not calling it “Battle Royale With Cheese”.

I am not one to play these types of games, but do they have an inventory system? If they do, I hope it’s a jumble of oddly specific tupperware that only fits one item each — and you have to find it the drawer, first.

The real question is… how many lootboxes do we need to open to find the lamb sauce?
