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?

“Depending on the success of the game and on the feedback from its community, the early access is planned to last between 2 and 6 months.”

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.

One of our priorities is to include a social system to allow the players, amongst others, to create groups to play together with friends.

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:
  • a Team Fight mode : from 1v1 to 3v3.
  • a Juggernaut mode : one against all, the Juggernaut being bigger and stronger than the other players (from 1v2 to 1v5).
  • 1 arena: Trinity Island.
  • a tutorial that explains the basic controls of the game.
  • a customization system that includes 15 Core looks, and many armor skins which can be unlocked in-game.
  • 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.”

After many months without any news, we come to you to tell you that no, BattleCore Arena isn't dead, quite the contrary!

This new update will include, among others :

- new cores,
- a party system, which will allow you to create teams up to 3 players before joining a server,
- an AI, with several levels, which will help filling the servers and will adapt itself to the players' levels,
- a training system, which will allow you to try out the maps and to train against an AI that suits your level,
- a ranking system, with 3 main levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) and 4 subclasses,
- new armor appearances,
- a new and more ergonomic game launching interface,
- and also improvements and new features in the interface.

With this update, we've tried to answer the most urgent needs and your most important requests.

Thanks for your support, and we hope we'll see you in the arena!

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.

Game modes

  • The Team​ ​mode​ (3v3 maximum). A game lasts 5 minutes and the team who ejects the highest number of enemies wins.

  • The Juggernaut​ ​mode​, in which one player is alone against the world! A game lasts 3 minutes, and the Juggernaut has to survive during the whole time to win. His opponents have to eject him 3 times to be victorious. And of course, the Juggernaut is bigger and stronger than them!
