Patch 3.25 - New Fireworks Taunt, performance optimization, new Test Feature on Small Twilight Grove, and more!

Welcome to Patch 3.25! This week we are launching a new, explosive Fireworks Taunt! We also updated the BotW, changed items on sale in Mallhalla, adjusted a test map, made performance optimization, and updated the Legend rotation.

BotW - 3v3 Beachbrawl
Time for a Beachbrawl party! What better way to beat the heat than throwing water balloons at beach balls to score goals in a 3v3 Summer throw down? Get 1 point for each beach ball you get past the opposing team's goal. Most points at the end of 2 minutes wins!
  • 3v3
  • Queue alone or with a friend!
  • 2 minutes
  • Most points at the end wins!
Mallhalla
  • Fireworks Taunt now available to add to your Heatwave Summer fun!
  • Check out Mallhalla for new sale items!
Performance
  • (PC) Optimized the off screen bubbles.
  • Decreased memory usage on disk and the in-game animation system.
  • New sound events on some UI elements.
  • Increased PS4 render efficiency.
Test Features
The test map Small Twilight Grove has been adjusted. The wedge on the right now has a small outside wall. This change is intended to open that area back up for recovering like on the standard version of Twilight Grove. It should also make recovering over the tip of the wedge a more viable option, all without opening the wedge back up to the abuse cases available on standard version. This also allows us to bring the wedge's left wall back to the same position it's currently in on the standard version since you're no longer forced to recover through the gap between the wedge and the main platform when knocked below the wedge. Additionally, the high soft platform in the middle has been lowered so that it can no longer aide a runaway player camping the wedge since a neutral air attack can now reach that platform within a single jump from the main platform. All of this is aimed at maintaining what players find fun about the unique geometry of Twilight Grove while eliminating the most egregious abuse cases.

Sound Engine
We’re slowly rolling out a new beta branch that uses Wwise in the live client. Wwise is a whole new sound engine that will drastically improve sound quality for PC players. It’s a system already running on PS4, and our goal is to mirror what we have onto PC. We will be asking the community to beta test this new sound engine!

Wwise will let us do more things, like:
  • Have more dynamic sounds
  • Smoother looping for background music
  • Taunt voice sounds
  • Dedicated thread for performance
  • AAA quality and more!
Legend Rotation
The new Legend rotation for this week includes: Artemis, Val, Barraza, Teros, Koji, and Queen Nai.
  • Artemis – Transversing the universe in search of her rival Orion, Artemis has ripped open a wormhole into Valhalla, armed with a Rocket Lance and Scythe; she is ready to fight!
  • Val - An android assassin with terrifying strength and quicker-than-light cognition, Val is a force to be reckoned with when utilizing her Sword and Gauntlets.
  • Barraza - A feared man in the wastelands with his Blasters and Axe, Barraza is the ultimate survivor and will do what it takes to be at the top in Valhalla.
  • Teros - A minotaur once belonging to the Iron Legion, Teros takes pride and joy in all the battles of Valhalla with his Axe and Hammer.
  • Koji - Armed with his ancestral katana, Koji slices his way through the battlefield with Sword and Bow!
  • Queen Nai - The Jaguar Queen steps into the halls of Valhalla with her Spear and Katars, earning victories in the hopes of regaining her lost kingdom.

About This Game

Brawlhalla: An eternal battle arena where the greatest warriors in history brawl to prove who's the best that ever was, is, or will be. Every match is an epic test of skill, speed, and strength, and every victory brings additional glory and bragging rights to the winners.

These slugfests are salted with powerful weapons and gadgets. Fighters scramble to grab swords, axes, hammers, blasters, rocket lances and more! Every weapon changes your play style and your options. Gadgets like mines, bombs, and spiked spheres add even more danger into the mix, letting fighters change the course of battle with a well timed-throw or carefully laid trap.

Brawlhalla is a free to play, 2D platform fighting game featuring both online and local singleplayer and multiplayer.
  • Online Ranked 1v1 - A personal test of skill where you match up against a single opponent to claim untold levels of personal glory in Brawlhalla.
  • Online Ranked 2v2 - Bolster your ranks with a friend to prove your mettle, wit, and teamwork in frenetic 2v2 battles.
  • 4 Player Online Free for All - Ranked or casual matches where four fighters enter, but only one can win.
  • 8 Player 4v4 & FFA - Because the only thing better than four legends vying for bragging rights is eight legends vying for bragging rights.
  • Local Free for All - Up to 4 players can play in free for all mode on one computer - perfect for friendly face-offs.
  • Local Custom Teams - Team-up on your local machine, with up to four players or bots for living-room level mayhem.
  • Local Single Player Tournament - Square off against bots in a three game tournament series. Perfect for warmups or score grinders.
  • Alternate Game Modes - Brawlball, Bombsketball and more provide ‘casual’ ‘party game’ ‘just for fun’ alternate game modes with completely different objectives and just as much competition.
  • The Training Room - Practice combos and setups inside the Training Room! Look at frame data, hitboxes, hurtboxes, and sharpen your skills for use

How we do Free to Play

Brawlhalla will always be 100% free to play, with no pay-to-win advantages and no in-game purchases to keep you from the action. Everything you can buy with real money is cosmetic (such as character skins, podiums, and KO effects) and none of them effect gameplay.

The Legend Rotation of six free to play characters rotates every week, and you can earn gold to unlock more Legends by playing any online game mode.

You can also check out our “All Legends Pack” that immediately unlocks every character we’ve ever made, and ever will make. Forever.

Here's what you can expect from Brawlhalla

  • Weekly patches and updates.
  • Online, custom, ranked, and local play modes.
  • Over 35 Legends to chose from and a free 6 character weekly rotation, unlockable with gold earned through playing the game.
  • Loads of stages to fight on.
  • Unique signature moves, weapon combinations and stats for each character.
  • Ranked seasons every three months with seasonal rewards for playing ranked.
  • A constant stream of new features, balance tweaks and Legends to make the game better and better.
  • Excited Devs active everywhere eagerly listening to what you think!
  • Our eternal thanks (you're our favorite).
