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?

“Hi-Rez Studios strongly believes in building games alongside our community. As seen in Paladins and SMITE, our games evolve dramatically over the course of Early Access because of feedback we receive from our players. We want players to be a part of Realm Royale’s development from the earliest possible moment so we can make the game you want to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This Early Access is just that -- Early. We want to do so much more with this game, and we intend to remain in Early Access until Realm Royale is finished.”

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

“Our primary focus in Early Access is polishing the core gameplay experience. We also will add a number of features and systems allowing players to level up and unlock cosmetic content, such as skins, before launch.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Realm Royale is in Early Access Alpha.

Players can experience five classes, 17 weapons, and 25 abilities. They will drop into a massive fantasy-inspired map featuring and play a last-man-standing, 100-player Battle Royale. All core gameplay is implemented (though we still intend to polish it). Out-of-game features, such as player levels and unlockable cosmetics, have yet to be introduced.”

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

“Realm Royale is currently free-to-play in Early Access, and will remain free-to-play after launch.”

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

“Our developers are very involved with our community. We are fully embracing Steam’s community tools and plan to be most active in the Steam discussion forums and news feed. We also read comments and engage with players on social media, conduct surveys, and watch streamers. And our community team collects formal feedback from players which is discussed in planning meetings every week.”

About This Game

Create your Champion. Forge your legend.

Explore a fantasy world in Realm Royale, the new Battle Royale sensation. Drop into the Realm, loot fantastic weapons and magical abilities, and work with your squad to win. Stay ahead of the deadly fog by mounting up and moving out. Will you be the last Champion standing?

Call your friends: It’s time to squad up. Realm Royale is the first Battle Royale designed to be played in Squads. Help your team by dropping a Healing Totem, or fire a Flare into the sky to reveal incoming enemies. By working together as a team the crown royale could be yours.

Discover powerful abilities scattered across the Realm. Soar through the skies slinging fireballs while your team deploys deadly turrets and shields. Flank the enemy with the stealthy Ghost Walk, leaving behind a proximity mine for them to discover when it’s too late. Customize your Champion each game with the abilities best suited for the battle at hand.

Go traditional with shotguns and snipers, or embrace the fantasy with ice staffs, swords, and crossbows. If you want to win, you’ll need to use the Forges scattered across the Realm to craft powerful Runes, epic Gear, or bring back your fallen teammates. But be careful: While you’re crafting, your enemies may attack.

Journey through the lush jungle of Jaguar’s Claws and the scorched sands of Goblin Gulch. Visit frigid Everfrost and iridescent Fungal Forest. The best part: you don’t have to walk around this massive Realm. Just summon your mount to outrun the fog and ride into your next glorious battle!
