Stunlock Studios have released a detailed event roadmap as Battlerite enters ‘A New Era’ with the transition to free-to-play.
Players can jump into Battlerite’s arena and engage in quick and intense action through highly competitive 2v2 and 3v3 battles. Control one out of 21 champions that specialise in either melee, support or ranged combat, from Bakko, the heroic brawler, Jade, the long-range gunner, to Blossom, the ultimate team support. It’s all about skill-shots, timing and reactions as you dodge projectiles and pull off massive ultimate attacks using intuitive WASD movement and cursor-based aiming. Team up with friends, smash in style and triumph over the competition.
