Want to play a new game but don’t have the pennies for it? No problem as there’s a brand new Battle Royale game out today on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC – and it’s magical.
Spellbreak is a magic-focused free-to-play Battle Royale game from Boston indie studio Proletariat, and, unlike other games, it will allow full cross-play and cross-progression across all platforms. So, for example, you could start playing on PS4 until your console is stolen by a crack head and sold for crack. Then you could steal an Xbox One from an orphanage and carry on your progression until the cops swoop in on you and reclaim the Xbox One and put your bum in jail. Then, you can get a Switch Lite smuggled into your cell via a drone, and continue where you left off. That’s just one possible scenario, of course, and your life choices may vary.
“Today marks the beginning of a new era in multiplayer gaming. The team worked incredibly hard to deliver one of the first ever simultaneous cross-platform, cross-play, and cross-progression launches,” said Seth Sivak, CEO of Proletariat. “Spellbreak’s unique combat and innovative gameplay will be available for all players to play with whoever they want, on whatever platform they want, regardless of hardware choice.”
Spellbreak is a multiplayer action-spellcasting game where players unleash their inner battlemage and wield two powerful magic gauntlets that blend devastating spell combinations to control the battlefield with fiery tornadoes, electrified gas clouds, and more! Set in the Hollow Lands, players can explore the map to find tactical advantages and discover hidden chests that contain magical runes that give new abilities, including flight, teleport, and invisibility.
