“INDIE-HIT” BATTLERITE GETS ITS FIRST MAJOR UPDATE!
Battlerite was released in Early Access on September 20th and immediately soared to the top of the Steam Global Top Seller list. PC Gamer said: “Battlerite is the best teamfight you’ve ever had, over and over” while Kotaku wrote “Battlerite is accessible, frantic, and a really great time.” The initial reactions amongst players on Steam have been very positive. The Halloween update will be the first major content patch for Battlerite since its Early Access release.
The new patch offers plenty of reasons for both Battlerite veterans and new players alike to visit the arena.
TWO NEW CHAMPIONS
Introducing two brand new champions to the Battlerite universe:
Jumong, The Beast Hunter, is a trophy collector who wandered the wildlands in pursuit of a worthy challenge. No longer content with hunting the great beasts of this world, Jumong looks to the arena for a new type of prey. He traps his foes and brings them to their death with the accuracy of his mighty bow.
Ruh Kaan, The Crypt Warden, was awoken from his deep slumber when a grave robber disturbed the sacred crypts of Ark’dun. Pursuing the trespasser led him to the Arenas, where he still tracks his quarry. A wielder of dark powers, Ruh Kaan consumes the souls of those who stand in his way.
