Spellbreak is a new battle royale RPG featuring epic magic combat. Now, I’m not to crazy when it comes to these types of battle royale games, as most of the are just to catch in on the hype of Fortnite and PUBG, but since I am a fan of elemental based games, I figured I’d give this game the benefit of the doubt…for now.
From the gameplay below it does look like it’s doing something quite interesting. There’s lots going on in the battlefield and the abilities used look kinda fun. The animation for most of the attacks clearly needs more polish but they still look like they’d be fun to pull off in a fight. the art direction reminds me of Netflix’s The Dragon Prince which I thought was pretty cool. Aside from that, I will need to see more and play it to see if it brings something new to the table or will fade away like the rest of these clones.
I personally have only played PUBG and Fornite, with PUBG being the one I prefer to play. So you can understand why I haven’t really talked too much positive things about most of these battle royale games that have popped up over the months. Heck, I haven’t even played the CoD Blackout yet and that one actually looks good. Anyways, in SPELLBREAK, magic spells come from two enchanted gauntlets that your character wears, and which ones they equip depends on their class. There’s fire, lightning, ice, stone, wind, and poison TYPES of attacks, and it seems you can combo them to create devastating combos. For example, casting a poison cloud and then setting it on fire to creates a poisonous hellish whirlwind of death. It has has some RPG aspect to it too so that might be what sets this game apart.
The game is currently in pre-alpha. If you’re like me and want to try out the game before making judgement like an edgelord, you can sign up here. Who knows, maybe I might like it.
