Spellbreak is a free-to-play, multiplayer action-spellcasting game that was shown last week at Gamescom Opening Night Live. The game has you channelling your inner battlemage, using elemental powers to defeat other players. Let’s find out more about this magic battle-royale game as Spellbreak launches today!
Spellbreak is a unique battle-royale experience. Squads team up to battle against other mages in the Hollow Lands, a fractured battleground in the world of Primdal. There are six classes you can play as: Frostborn, Conduit, Pyromancer, Toxicologist, Stoneshaper, or Tempest. Each class has a unique playstyle which you can customize with talents as your power grows.
Just because you pick one class, it doesn’t mean you are limited to just one ability. Using two magical gauntlets you can blend your spells to create devastating combinations. You won’t be solely relying on these spells though. Across the Hollow Lands there are chests that contain magical runes and game-changing equipment. Maybe you’ll gain the ability to fly, or learn to become invisible and hide from your enemies.
The Hollow Lands are only the beginning. The developers say that the world of Spellbreak will evolve over time. Chapter Updates will unlock new locations for players to battle across, whilst giving us more lore about Primdal and it’s people. This is common with all battle-royale games, but should help keep Spellbreak fresh if they are delivered consistently. Right now, we don’t know how often these updates will come. The developers also promise that future content updates will bring exciting new modes to enjoy.
Spellbreak is entering a crowded space. Between Call of Duty: Warzone, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fall Guys, Fortnite and Hyperscape it will certainly be hard for the new title to find an audience. However, cross-play and cross-progression will certainly help with that. You can play with your friends regardless of whether they play on PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. What’s even more exciting is that your progress will stay with you no matter which device you play Spellbreak on.
Spellbreak launches today on Xbox One, PC, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. You can find out more about the free-to-play battle royale here.
