We launched ourselves from a cannon in the recent Rumbleverse beta and were suitably intrigued by the title, so we’re pleased to see the free-to-play Iron Galaxy developed PS5 and PS4 grapple-‘em-up get a release date. Originally due out in February, the Epic Games published outing will now arrive on 11th August, with its first season set to enter the ring on 18th August.
“Rumbleverse has been a passion project for us and a real testament to the skills and experience of our team,” said Iron Galaxy boss Adam Boyes. “We can’t wait to see everyone pour into Grapital City and discover the singular joy of suplexing a friend off a skyscraper.” Much like Fortnite, the game features crossplay and cross-progression, so you can pretty much play wherever you like.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of legs this title has. Obviously battle royale games are big business, but this being more of a brawler with some pretty technical gameplay makes it a trifle less accessible than shooters. Nevertheless, we find the concept appealing and had fun in the beta, so we’ll certainly be spending 11th August in Grapital City. Will you?
I am generally awful at shooters, so I'm already interested. The wrestling part is the cherry on top, looking forward to checking this one out!
I hope there is a variety of styles, like Lucha/High Flyers, Technicians, Power brawlers, etc.
@ceedj You kinda create your own character how you want them to be, but you pick up special moves and stuff from within the map itself. It's a Battle Royale so there's "in-match progression", so to speak.
If it's successful I can see epic buying them
What kind of monetization does this have? I hope they just sell costumes or something like that. If it’s pay-to-win then I’m not going to bother checking this out.
I've seen a couple of streams, looks like it has some surprisingly deep mechanics. Will be giving it a try, elbow dropping someone from a skyscraper looks as fun as it sounds!
Another F2P that you'll fall behind on if you skip a day of playing.
