Independent developer Stunlock Studios announced that Season 1 of
their PvP arena brawler, Battlerite, kicks off today, bringing along exciting
new changes. The new Sponsor Reward System expands on the current daily quests
by allowing players to follow specific reward paths to unlock Champions, earn
in-game currency as well as obtain season-specific rewards. Moreover, a new
Champion Jamila, the Shadowblade Assassin, joins the arena, ready to swiftly
release a deadly shuriken on anyone who dares to undermine her leadership.
“We updated the reward system in order to acknowledge the daily efforts of
competitive players, and to make sure casual gamers don’t feel left out. That’s
why the new system has multiple Sponsor paths, some fitting less frequent play
styles and others having a League requirement for higher ranked players”, said
Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “All the content is now
connected through the reward paths that piece together new places and characters
into a more cohesive and ever expanding Battlerite universe.”
Other new features in Season 1 include Leaderboards of top 200 players in five
Regions (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania), ability for
League players to change their selected Champion in a pre-game lobby according
to the team and enemy picks as well as improvements to matchmaking and ranking
systems. Battlerite now also has a unique application kit in VR called ‘CamCrew’.
This feature allows players to watch live matches and replays in VR and also
control the camera movement in full 3D in order to produce stunning cinematic
shots for streaming or render to video.
