Stunlock Studios has today released a new mode in Battlerite. The new game is called “Battlegrounds,” and offers objective-based 3v3 gameplay.
The Battlegrounds matches are split into two halves. The first half starts with the “event phase,” where players aim to secure objectives within their team. The second half leads to an “assault/defend” section, with one team defending while the other attacks. Players win the game by destroying the Guardian on the enemy’s team.
Battlegrounds introduces a number of new mechanics as well as some refined mechanics previously used in brawls such as Respawn, Capture Points, NPC’s and Balloons, Power Shards, a Minimap function, an in-game level system, Brush and Guardians. The new patch also includes a shiny new UI and a new “Battlerites” system which let players customize and choose Battlerites before the match and enter the fray with all Battlerites active from the start of the match.
Featuring quick and intense, highly competitive, rip-roaring 2v2 and 3v3 battles, Battlerite has already attracted over 1 million players in Early Access on Steam.
Battlerite will launch fully on November 8, available on Steam for $19.99 / £14.99 / 19.99€. Or you can try out early access today.
