Developed by Heroic Leap Games and Published by Hi–Rez Studios, this Fantasy style Battle Royale was initially released in June 2018.
“Be the last Champion standing in Realm Royale! Loot deadly weapons and powerful abilities to create your own Champion. Explore a fantasy world from horseback while outrunning the deadly fog. Can you survive the first 100-person fantasy Battle Royale?”
Realm Royale is still in early access, currently in the Beta testing stage.
Hi-Rez Studios have answered a few questions for players ahead of time.
Why Early Access?
“Hi-Rez Studios strongly believes in building games alongside our community. As seen in PALADINS and SMITE, our games evolve dramatically over the course of Early Access because of feedback we receive from our players. We want players to be a part of Realm Royale’s development from the earliest possible moment so we can make the game you want to play.”
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“This Early Access is just that — Early. We want to do so much more with this game, and we intend to remain in Early Access until Realm Royale is finished.”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“Our primary focus in Early Access is polishing the core gameplay experience. We also will add a number of features and systems allowing players to level up and unlock cosmetic content, such as skins, before launch.”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Realm Royale is in Early Access Beta.
Players can experience five classes, 17 weapons, and 25 abilities. They will drop into a massive fantasy-inspired map featuring and play a last-man-standing, 100-player Battle Royale. All core gameplay is implemented (though we still intend to polish it). Out-of-game features, such as player levels and unlockable cosmetics, have yet to be introduced.”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Realm Royale is currently free-to-play in Early Access, and will remain free-to-play after launch.”
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“Our developers are very involved with our community. We are fully embracing Steam’s community tools and plan to be most active in the Steam discussion forums and news feed. We also read comments and engage with players on social media, conduct surveys, and watch streamers. And our community team collects formal feedback from players which is discussed in planning meetings every week.”
