Free-to-play 3D fighter ArcheBlade launches

Judging by this screenshot, ArcheBlade is pretty equal-opportunities when it comes to skimpy costumes.

ArcheBlade, Codebrush Games’ free-to-play 3D fighting game, has launched on Steam alongside a new trailer.

ArcheBlade puts you in control of one of 14 different fighters and has you battle it out with other players across a wide variety of maps and game modes. You can duel a friend, or hop into a free-for-all multiplayer brawl, or try your hand at a team mode like Capture the Flag. If you’re a fan of fighting games (as, despite the numerous game modes, this is apparently inspired by Street Fighter and Tekken) you might want to give it a look. And why not? It’s free! Although you can also pay £15 for a Starter Pack that unlocks a character, gives them an exclusive customisation item, hands you some in-game currency, and gives you a 7-day experience booster. Still, you may still want to have a go before shelling out your cash.

Have a look at the launch trailer below and decide if it’s something that’s up your brawling alley.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
