Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a way for you to enjoy Battlerite whilst it is in the final stages of development. With your support, we hope to ensure Battlerite is here to stay for many years to come.

We’ve already come a long way to make sure that we meet everybody's expectations with this EA launch. All mechanics, meta-game features, several champions and arenas are already in place.

Early Access is our way of ensuring that the game will be rock-solid when fully launched. As an aspiring eSport, tuning gameplay balance to perfection is one of our top priorities. New content, primarily in the form of new champions, will arrive in a steady pace throughout EA up until launch.

We encourage you to provide your feedback as we progress through this final stage of development and we sincerely believe that together we can achieve more! By supporting us you will play a crucial part in the development of Battlerite while preparing yourself for the upcoming launch tournaments!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Thanks to your support we will be able to continue the development of the game until it’s ready for official release. Our goal is to launch Battlerite when the game works perfectly across multiple regions. We are aiming to release Battlerite in the second half of 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In Early Access you receive a solid foundation of what Battlerite is about. Some of the features are still under development and will be implemented in future updates. A big part of EA is finding out what players would like to see more of, but here’s some of what you can expect:

  • Gameplay balance tuned to perfection
  • An expanded roster of diverse and battle-hungry Champions
  • New Arenas
  • Expansions and improvements to Ranking Systems
  • More ways of smashing in style with additional weapons, skins and other visual customizations
  • Battlerite made available with dedicated servers in more regions
  • Improvements and polish across the board including but not limited to
  • Social System
  • Replay System
  • New user experience & Progression System
  • Menu interface and HUD

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, has a well-balanced roster of champions, a round based progression system and a number of arenas to battle in.

It also boasts a solid menu interface with a number of features such as matchmaking, group chats, friend listing, profile summaries, champion progression and a quest system.

There’s a fully-fledged tutorial, practice mode and the option to play versus either AI or other players in a 2v2 or 3v3 environment.

If you’re after customizations, then there are a good number of vanity items that can be unlocked by playing and progressing your account, all of which you get to keep forever.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Battlerite will be free-to-play once the game is fully launched with the possibility of unlocking content through gameplay or micro-transactions. By purchasing Early Access, you are granted instant-access to the game, all champions & all future champions as well as a unique founder avatar & title.

This bundle will not be available at launch. It’s likely that the same amount of content will cost more once the game is released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our team are continuously looking for feedback and ideas through our community. Particularly engaged players may have the opportunity to be included in private meetings and internal tests, so be sure to get involved!

Thank you for your support and helping us to bring our champions back to life!”

About This Game

Welcome to a world where champions dedicate their lives to the arena.

Battlerite is a PvP team arena brawler and the spiritual successor to critically acclaimed Bloodline Champions. Experience the unique combination of a top down shooter with a fast paced fighting game. Take part in highly competitive, adrenaline-fueled 2v2 and 3v3 battles.

Engage in quick and intense action as you take control over one of several champions, each with their own special abilities. Dodge bullets and pull off massive ultimate attacks with the use of unique WASD movement & cursor based aiming. It’s all about skill-shots, timing and reaction.

RAW ARENA ACTION

Become the greatest of your kind in 10-15 minute explosive battles of reaction. It doesn't matter if you are a veteran or a rookie on a rampage, all champions have the same fighting chance. This is top down brawling in its purest form.

PERFORM BATTLERITES

Gain strength and unlock powers by performing ancient rites. Pick your rites to counter your opponents and strategically customize your play style as the match progresses.
