24 Entertainment launched its battle royale Naraka: Bladepoint last summer on PC. If you’re familiar with the battle royale genre, then it shouldn’t surprise you how the game works: sixty players are deposited into an open area dusted with pagodas (it’s set in ancient China) and it’s every warrior for themselves. In Naraka, though, you have special abilities to help you including parkour skills for chasing down enemies, and a grappling hook for when you’re being chased yourself. And if you don’t mind being the center of attention, you can gain the power to transform into a giant Vajra Warrior and simply step on everybody else! You better run once you turn back to normal though.
After an open beta test last June, 24 Entertainment’s battle royale is almost ready to go. Naraka: Bladepoint launches August 12 on PC, but console gamers have been wondering if they’ll get their own version. Today we can confirm it’s true — 24 is also working on Naraka for consoles. They won’t confirm every machine the game will land on, but they did reveal a PS5 version is in the works. See it in action below…
Battle Royale Games are everywhere ever since Fortnite and multiplayer Minecraft became hits. So Many titles sprouted like Mushrooms with different varieties and flavors. We have games like Valorant, Apex Legends, PubG,Firestorm and Dying Light: Bad Blood. This reminds me of the 90s when fighting games became a hit. It caused an oversaturation of Fighting Games that it almost destroyed the genre. It will take the creation of Street Fighter IV for the Fighting Game Genre to recover. We are having an Over saturation of Battle Royale Games. It can be a good thing or a bad thing but games with no active community will not survive.
It was only a matter of time before Nintendo’s Mario personally got involved in the red-hot battle royale gaming craze, given that the plumber has dabbled in just about every other genre there is. No one expected him to do it in this fashion, however. Mario is going contemporary and back in time at once with Super Mario Bros 35.
Currently, EA’s hit battle royale game Apex Legends is only available on three platforms: Playstation 4, XBox One and sort of PC. By “sort of” we mean you have to use EA’s proprietary Origin launcher to play it. Things are about to open up, though, in a big way.
However way you answer the Call of Duty, you’ve got some new content to enjoy right now as Activision launches Season 3 in both Modern Warfare and its battle royale spinoff Warzone.
Call Of Duty Warzone is free. Call of Duty Modern Warfare is not. This much we know, but our modern times live by no rules. This weekend only, anyone with a Warzone account can try out the multiplayer in Modern Warfare for free.
It didn’t take long for Call of Duty Warzone to land its first major public esports event. Twitch Rivals: Warzone Streamer Showdown is a new competition where the biggest Twitch names from all over the world throw down, with a prize pool of $250,000 (or the pounds/Euros equivalent) at stake.
Call of Duty Warzone has launched and is now available for download on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Inspired by Modern Warfare, the Free-to-Play Battle Royale game will allow players to fight with up to 150 other players.
Last November Apex Legends introduced Duo Mode: a new way to play matches that paired you with one other person, as opposed to the usual two. It’s possible in other games (like Apex’s direct competition over at Epic) but here it was sadly a limited time event….Duo Mode disappeared after a week.
A whole new season of Apex Legends is about to hit in a few hours. The majority of the hype is centered around Revenant, the newest Legend. How fearsome is he? Well, Respawn pulled a little stunt where a completely different Legend, Forge, was introduced — and then killed from behind by Revenant during his one and only video interview.
Respawn is about to spice up the world of Apex Legends in a big way with a two-week event called the Grand Soirée. Put on your fanciest skins and parachute into wild new modes like a third-person camera (available only on January 18) and a map overrun with Dummies (on January 26).
