With the explosion of popular games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, battle royale modes are becoming as common as classic deathmatch, and players will probably be unfazed to see one announced for free-to-play MMO Skyforge.
Within the MMO context of Skyforge, the battle royale mode is the complete opposite of traditional MMO pastimes like grinding levels and obtaining gear for characters. According to Skyforge publisher My.com, "Skyforge: Battle Royale can be launched from the start screen and requires no progress on any character in the MMO." After selecting from one of Skyforge's 12 classes, players will encounter each other around the map as well as monsters, whom after defeating drop "much-desired loot in the form of armor, weapons, dangerous gadgets and crazy traps."
The developer hopes the mode has a "skill-based action game feel, while being familiar for MMO players" and says that "items and weapons have less of an auto-aim to make it more rewarding as players battle it out in the virtual battleground."
Skyforge's battle royale mode will launch for Xbox One August 30th.
