Indie phenomenon innovates the Royale genre with player created characters and bespoke damage and weapon systems.
PORTSMOUTH, UK – 6th March 2018: Indie hit developer, Freejam, is excited to announce their latest game, Robocraft Royale. This new standalone PC game comes to Steam Early Access on March 26th. Priced at $19.99, Robocraft Royale innovates the battle royale genre by allowing players to battle in a vast, 64km2, map with the best crazy characters sourced from the 13 mill+ strong Robocraft community.
Robocraft Royale get players straight into battle, experimenting with different character types and aiming for number one! All while looking as stylish as possible. Robocrafts Royale’s brilliant cube destruction system bring players novel battle encounters as they de-gun their enemies, blast off their limbs, cripple their movement parts and totally manipulate their destruction. Robocraft Royale offers endless surprises, with a changing roster of new characters to discover, events, contests, map updates and team modes keeping players coming back for more.
While a spaceship streaks across a huge map, players eject and control their descent to the surface. Upon landing, they burst out in their starter buggy and explore a landscape littered with hundreds of different character types that they must transfer into, learn and devise tactics for. Each character posesses bespoke weapon loadouts, abilities and may also walk, drive, hover and fly. Those who can master and be flexible with these different characters will survive the ever shrinking play area. By learning these strengths and weaknesses, even a mechanized chicken can emerge victorious.
“Robocraft Royale offers completely new intense battle scenarios and carnage for players to spontaneously encounter” exclaimed Ric Turner, Game Director, immediately after the first mass test. “I just saw a chicken running backwards unloading two chain guns into the front of a monster truck which was trying to run it over. Another player just did a gun run in a WWII plane, but got his wings blown off by a Dino Mech. Using his only remaining propeller, he reverse tumbles into a skylight of a building to discover a vacant über mech… Revenge kill!”
Back in November 2017, during a bleery Monday morning meeting, Robocraft Royale with its entertaining characters and unique destruction system was conceived as a way to reiterate on the Battle Royale genre. By Wednesday it had a team of six, and five months later it’s here! The spontaneous rate of development has been incredibly exciting as player feedback during the past month is with implementation during regular Alpha Tests.
