As we mentioned earlier this week, the battle royale sub-genre has a fresh arrival in the form of Spellbreak, a game where the shooting of guns is replaced with the slinging of spells. Players take up the mantle of a battle mage and can equip two different magical gauntlets, with each one combining to create unique spell attacks like fiery tornadoes, electrified gas clouds, and fiery boulders. Otherwise, the battle royale game beats all sound like they’re represented, with additional chests hiding around the map that contain runes and equipment, granting players the ability to fly, teleport, control time, or turn invisible, and players fighting to be the last battle mage standing.
Developer Proletariat has offered full cross-platform cross-play, as well as cross-progression featuers that let players bring their advancement and customization to any supported platform once they create a game account. The devs are also promising plenty of things to look forward to in the future like new game modes and new chapter updates that will reveal more of the lore behind the Hollow Lands and its people.
For those interested in trying the game out, it’s free to play on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
