Stunlock Studios Battlerite has been in Early Access for a while now but it’s set to go free to play soon.
Battlerite is the successor to Stunlock’s Bloodline Champions arena battler which gained a loyal following during the time it was online. On 8 November Battlerite will be going free to play as it leaves Early Access. Ahead of the free to play launch, Stunlock will be holding a free weekend between 25 September until 1 October which would be a good time to take it for a spin. The Early Access version will also be on sale during that week for $9.98/€9,98/£7,49.
“We are super excited to enter ‘A New Era’ with Battlerite heading into a full free to play commercial launch this November”, said Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “For the occasion, we are offering Battlerite free of charge for one week from September 25th together with an incredible sale across the board on Steam which will give new players a taste of what they can expect.”
Stunlock had also released a timeline of events for the months ahead which includes a mysterious new game mode which will launch this October. There appears to be a lot planned.
If you enjoy some arena fighting with heroes then this is worth a look.
