What if Fortnite looked a bit more like, say, Jet Set Radio or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? That’s basically the elevator pitch for Spellbreak, a brand new Battle Royale set to enter closed beta in Spring 2020. This is a fantasy-inspired game, so expect more Realm Royale than PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds; its artstyle really does separate it from its immediate competition, though.
“We took our inspiration from old-school shooters with skill shots and crazy mobility and we added in some modern twists to make a combat system that truly embodies fantasy action spellcasting,” developer Proletariat’s Seth Sivak said. “Add to that our spin on battle royale with elements of rogue-like games and RPGs, along with a gorgeous art style, and you have something we feel is totally unique.”
