Realm Royale is entering a brand new phase of development as we transition into Closed Beta, and eventually onto Open Beta early next year. It’s been an exciting journey through Alpha and we are so thankful to the players who have made Realm Royale possible.

To commemorate this exciting next chapter in the Realm Royale’s history, we will be giving all PC players that play before the Open Beta the Founding Forgers Title and Avatar. These will serve as a badge of gratitude from all of on the Heroic Leap Games’ team for your dedication to making Realm Royale the great gaming experience it is today.

With our recent movement to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, we also want to thank our new console players that want to get involved! Players that purchase the Realm Royale Founder’s Pack on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will also receive the Founding Forgers Title and Avatar at a later date. We will retroactively give these items to all players who purchase the Founder’s Packs.

We can’t thank our players enough for all they have done in building and improving the Realm in 2018. We look forward to a great year of exciting announcements and features in 2019 and can’t wait to take this journey with you, our players. Thank you for being a part of Realm Royale’s history: let’s dive into an exciting future!
Realm Royale - HeroicLeapJNash


Hey everyone, this week we have released the new Founder’s Packs on Xbox and PlayStation 4! With this movement to a new stage in the Closed Beta, we have some announcements as we approach Open Beta early next year.


Battle Pass 1: Primal Awakening is live on Xbox and PlayStation 4
The Primal Awakening Battle Pass is now available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 4! Advance through 65 levels of unlockable content including Chicken Skins, Mounts, Skydive Effects, and more. Players will earn Battle Pass XP by playing the game and completing daily challenges. Each level you gain will unlock new rewards!

Want more information about the Primal Awakening Battle Pass? Visit our webpage!

If you opt to not unlock the Battle Pass, don’t worry. You can level up your Free Pass and unlock some content just by playing! Plus, you can buy in at any time before the end of the season to unlock all items up to your current level.

You’ll want to act quickly, the Primal Awakening Battle Pass will only be available until mid-January! We’re giving all players double Battle Pass XP now through the end of the first Battle Pass. What’s more: to celebrate the holidays, we will be offering four times Battle Pass XP from Friday, December 21st through Wednesday December 26th!

We are also turning on the in-game Shop! Players will now be able to unlock a variety of skins and cosmetics with Crowns, Realm Royale’s premium currency.



The Chicken Nugget Shop is Closing Down
We’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with new ways to collect items in-match like Chicken Nuggets. We want to thank everyone who gave us feedback on this system.

Now that we are moving through the Beta phase with a strong content pipeline on the horizon, we are announcing that we are discontinuing the use of Chicken Nuggets as a currency in Realm Royale. However, these Nuggets will be available for use until we update to Patch 14 in January! Players will be given two choices as to what they want to do with the Chicken Nuggets until then:
  • Use your Chicken Nuggets to unlock skins and other cosmetics within the game until Patch 14 in January.
  • Hold on to your Chicken Nuggets, as when Patch 14 arrives in January, we will be converting Chicken Nuggets into Crowns using a conversion rate that we will announce closer to the patch date in order to exchange them into Crowns.

Chicken Nuggets have been removed from chests, but players will continue to be able to unlock this currency by placement and team eliminations in matches.

We look forward to announcing new content coming to Realm Royale in the near future!



The PC Alpha Pack is leaving the Shop
As we transition into the Beta phase of Realm Royale, it’s time to bid adieu to the Alpha Pack on PC. The Alpha Pack, containing 5 items exclusive to PC, will be available until mid-January!!

The Alpha Pack includes:
  • Kaleidoscope Mount
  • Alpha T-Pose Emote
  • Alpha Chicken Skin
  • Alpha Spray
  • Alpha Avatar
Realm Royale - HeroicLeapJNash


Features:
  • Zeppelin
    • The Zeppelin model has been updated to better match the interior model.
    • “We’ve had great feedback from you after moving players to a Zeppelin interior at the start of the match. We wanted to build a new zeppelin exterior that was not only more consistent with the interior we built, but is also more cohesive with the visual themes of the realm world itself.”
  • Runes
    • Runes have undergone a visual update to make them more visually distinct from other loot items.
    • “Runes are a powerful addition to your equipment in a match, and we felt the presentation needed to match. While the Runes now have an improved visual update, they also now better represent the type of Rune. We hope this makes the experience of collecting Runes better while helping them stand out from normal loot.”
  • Chicken Nuggets
    • Nuggets have been removed from drops within the game and from quest rewards.
    • "We introduced the Chicken Nugget currency system as an experiment to test collecting a new type of currency in-match. We appreciate everyone who gave us feedback on this system! Now that we are moving into the Beta phase with a strong content pipeline on the horizon, we are discontinuing the use of Chicken Nuggets as a currency in Realm Royale in version 14 in January. However, these Nuggets will be available for use until then. When Chicken Nuggets are fully retired, we will be using a conversion rate that we will announce closer to the patch date in order to exchange them into Crowns."
Gameplay:
  • Loot Goblin
    • Improved UI feedback around Loot Goblins
      • There will be a text notification for nearby players when a Goblin is discovered.
      • Once a Goblin is discovered an icon will appear above their head for better visibility.
  • Weapons
    • Throwing Axe
      • Damage reduced by 3%
      • “The Throwing Axe is a powerful weapon that deals great chunks of damage, but it’s overall damage per second is actually low. This change will mean that in more cases it will take an extra shot to kill with the Throwing Axe. Having to throw an extra axe can make all the difference in a head-to-head fight.”
    • Venom Pistol
      • Damage reduced by 5%
      • “The Venom Pistol is strong right now, but has also been very weak in the past. We’re going to keep an eye on this weapon and gradually adjust it until it is in the right place.”
  • Abilities
    • “We are in the process of reworking the cooldown systems for many of the game’s abilities with a focus on providing a better balance between how often an ability is used compared to how impactful it is when you use it. Some of our changes were included in the Early Access 13 Mini Patch, and more adjustments will continue to roll out in the 14 Patch.”

Two weeks ago, I was sat in a dive bar so scuzzy it was practically underwater. It was there my friend told me he spent nearly all his time playing Paladins on his Xbox, and I learnt two things. 1) Paladins must be bigger than I thought, and 2) platform restrictions can make me sad.

Today, in the opening announco-blast of Atlanta’s Hi-Rez Expo, Hi-Rez announced that cross-platform play is coming to Paladins, Realm Royale and Smite.

Realm Royale - HeroicLeapJNash

General
  • Brazil, Asia/Pacific Rim, and Australia servers are now available.
  • To improve the quality of our matchmaking experience, we've removed timed queues.
  • To address player concerns about waiting too long for a game, we've introduced a system that will fill matches with AI opponents if certain conditions are met.

Gameplay
  • Weapons
    • Stone Staff
      • Now has damage falloff over range.
    • Venom Pistol
      • Improved weapon handling.
      • “The Venom Pistol is a very effective weapon in terms of damage throughput but in practical situations it was very difficult to consistently land all three shots. We have made some changes to make the Venom Pistol feel more consistent.”
  • Abilities
    • Fire Bomb
      • Damage no longer scales based on target’s maximum health.
      • “It will now always deal the same damage to all enemies, chickens will no longer take less damage, warriors will no longer take more damage.”
  • Chickens
    • Reduced chicken speed by 10%.
    • “While chickens should be able to escape with cunning play, it’s important that downing a player is a moment of triumph rather than a moment of frustration. Now the little cluckers will have to rely on quick wits, not quick feet.”
  • Potions
    • “With this release we’re making a number of changes to potions. Potions will now lock out weapons and abilities, leaving players vulnerable, but you will be able to move around. The amount that potions heal has been reduced to make potions more individually valuable, especially Health Potions. Armor Potions are one of the most valuable drops in Realm Royale so we want to give players a more consistent path to get them.”
    • Potions can now be used while moving.
    • Potions can no longer be interrupted by weapons or abilities.
    • Reduced Potion casting time from 3 to 2 seconds.
    • Armor Potions
      • Increased drop rate of Armor Potions from Potion chests by 100%.
      • Reduced the cost of crafting Armor Potions from 25 to 15.
      • Reduced starting armor from 500 to 0.
      • Reduced value of Armor Potions from 500 to 300.
    • Health Potions
      • Reduced value of Health Potions from 500 to 300.
  • Forges
    • All forges will now be active each game.

Environment
  • Changed chest model from gold chest to normal chest.
  • Added Runic Stones to the environment
