What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With this early access, we wish to offer an accomplished game experience to our players, and allow them to be involved in the development of an indie game.

For now, as developers, we find BattleCore Arena satisfying, but we would like it to be faithful to what the players that compose its community are expecting from it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to take the necessary time in order for the game to be in line with the community expectations. We will keep you informed as often as possible.”

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

“The full version on BattleCore Arena will get several additions, as well in the gameplay as on the graphic aspects.
Several arenas are planned to be developed (with different level designs), but also improvements in the game rules and new game modes.
Not only will there be more Cores, armors and lights, but you will also have access to new ways to customize your game experience.
Finally, we plan to include a complete gamepad control system, although we would advise you to play with your keyboard and mouse.
All this content will be conceived according to the feedback and demands of our community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“For now, BattleCore Arena includes:
  • 3v3 game mode, with a Backup system
  • 2 arenas: Trinity Island and Alien Experiment
  • a tutorial that explains the basic controls of the game.
  • a lobby system, to play with your friends
  • artificial intelligences, which will fill games, if there is not enough players
  • a customization system that includes more than 15 Core looks, and many armor skins which can be unlocked in-game.
  • more than 20 Steam Achievements, some of them offering exclusive rewards.

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

“No, the price will stay the same. There is no paid content, and the players which will have participated in the early access will get exclusive items.”

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

“Through the Steam Community page, our Discord, Reddit, Facebook, and through the statistics we will collect and analyze, the community will guide us in the creation of content on the graphic side, but especially in the design of the new arenas and the new game modes.”

BattleCore Arena 0.3.2.2

Good morning, everyone!

We meet again for the update of BattleCore Arena to version 0.3.2.2 !
In this update: technical changes, some gameplay changes, and even a more beautiful arena than before. Let's do this!

Upgrade to Unreal Engine 4.21.2
  • That's a big piece we have here. Until now, BattleCore Arena has been using version 4.13 of the Unreal Engine. The switch to 4.21 allows us to optimize the game's operation, reduce future development times, fix some recalcitrant bugs and improve graphics. Just that!

Graphic design

Balancing
  • The shield no longer regenerates after a few seconds. It’s time to stop hiding, and get the shield bonuses instead!
  • The fire rate has been increased. It goes from 9 projectiles per second to 11 projectiles per second. Dynamism, for heaven's sake!
  • As a result, each projectile inflicts a little less damage to the shields and projects a little less far.
  • As an other result, artificial intelligences have also been recalibrated.
  • Slight change in gravity control: it no longer blocks rotation if you are in the air, making landings more fluid.

In-game interface
  • A visual effect is applied to your reticle when you succeed in hitting an enemy with one of your shots, for greater readability.
  • The target on the enemies within Blast's range has been redesigned.
  • In the scores, the "Regeneration" category was deleted, since it was no longer used.

New Core
  • A new core is available in this update: the barbed wire core.

Bug fixes
  • The camera no longer vibrates in play, as it sometimes did.
  • A few minor bugs, here and there.

That's all for this time, we'll see you in a little while for the next update! Thank you all and see you soon! :steamhappy:

Hello everyone!

Second hotfix after the update 0.3.1.0, this time we switch to 0.3.1.2! Our AIs needed a makeover :steamhappy:

About This Game

BattleCore Arena


Midway between a shooting game and a game of skill, BattleCore Arena is a multiplayer game in which you control a Core you will have to maneuver to eject your opponents from the platform in order to win.

We wanted a fast and dynamic game, so we got rid of everything unnecessary. This will allow you to focus on piloting your Core to be mobile and reactive, so that at every moment you will be able to flee or run after your opponents. You will also have to be careful of your shooting accuracy to eject and destroy your enemies.

Moreover, thanks to our customization options, you will be able to control a teapot or a light bulb, as well as a skull or a pig. Your Core’s armor and its lights are also customizable.

A game of BattleCore Arena is played according to the "3v3 Backup" rules.
As its name implies, two teams of three players compete against each other. Each team has 10 backup points, and when a player is ejected from the arena, he reappears consuming one backup point.
Once a team drops to 0 backup point, its players cannot reappear, reducing the number of players at the end of the game, for a final rise in tension.
