Over the week, I started playing a game called Battlerite. It was free to play game on steam and I decided to give it a shot. A few hours later, I found myself still wanting to play one more game.
Battlerite is a PvP arena brawler and the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Bloodline Champions. Experience the unique combination of a top-down shooter meeting a fast-paced fighting game and take part in highly competitive, adrenaline-fueled 2v2 and 3v3 battles.
Engage in quick and intense action as you take control over one of many Champions, each with unique abilities to master. Welcome to a world where Champions dedicate their lives to the Arena.
The game officially released in 8 Nov, 2017 and has received quite a lot of praise for its gameplay. It’s quick, fast-paced and does away with all the extra things that would define a MOBA and focuses only on the combat, which is something I liked a lot.
The first Season of Battlerite just recently began and I managed to place in the Silver League from the placements game. I like the characters designs in the game, my favorite right now been Jamila, the Shadowblade Assassin. She’s a melee class character and although mastering her will take time, when you get a kill, its amazing. Finding games in Battlerite is also surprisingly fast, I’ve never waited for more than a minute to find a match so that’s already a huge plus in my book.
Visuals are alright, nothing to brag about but that’s not the most important thing when it comes to gaming. Battlerite key aspect is Aim skill-shots and dodge projectiles with the use of WASD movement & cursor based aiming. It’s all about wielding total control over your champion and execute massive attacks against opponents. The games are mostly 2v2 or 3v3 so communication is key. I’ve solo’d most of my games and have had little to no problems most of the time.
Overall, I’d recommend given this one a shot. It’s free to play so there’s no harm in it and if you’re like me and like brawlers, then this might be up your alley.
