Notmycar is battle royale but with gun-toting cars and a tiresome attitude

"Everything else is just a walking simulator" is just one example of the bug-eyed posturing with which Skybound Games announce Notmycar, their attempt to snaffle a piece of Fort-Legs pie with a free-to-play, automotive-based battle royale. Notmycar takes the attitude that, if the car-wrecks don't bring all the boys to the yard, maybe being massively obnoxious will. "Are you tired of the same games day…

Battlefield V starts Firestorm battle royale on March 25

What happens if you fall into a burning ring of fire? It's a given that you'll fall down, down, down while the flames climb higher and that doubtless burns, burns, burns. What many don't expect is that you'll then lark about on a big red tractor with your pals and blast other firefools to pieces with some serious artillery. That's how it'll go in Firestorm,…

Last wizard standing ’em up Spellbreak zaps out a closed alpha

"What if X but wizards" is a question that's lead to many of my favourite things. Dota. Star Wars. Bernie Sanders. So I'm glad to see Spellbreak asking that question of battle royales, and returning with a spell-slinging last man standing 'em up that just launched in closed alpha. You can pay to get in immediately, or sign up in the hopes that they'll let…

Apex Legends is the battle royale from Respawn, and we have good news about the robot

Hello dear reader, ravenous chewer of news. Here is a steaming Apex Legends fact heap for you. Firstly, it is real - a great start. It has probably been released by the time you read you this, and is available free for PC-havers on Origin. It’s one of those battle royale games, but it’s also a bit more exciting than that, which I’ll get to…

Titanfall crew Respawn reveal their new game today – and might release it immediately

Titanfall but battle royale but without the mechs: that's the word on the street about what we can expect from Apex Legends, the next game from Respawn Entertainment. The Titanfall & Titanfall 2 studio, which these days is but one limb on the EA millipede, has confirmed they'll be revealing the game today, and that Apex Legends is indeed its name. Meanwhile, rumour swirls that…

Stardew Valley has a battle royale mod, because of course it does

A gentle breeze lapped against the hay bales. Farmer Wyatt leaned against his porch, soaking in another day of rural paradise. Pigs snuffled, chickens chirped. Then one of the 99 other farmers caved his skull in with a hoe. Stardew Valley modder "Ilyaki" has brought battle royale to the nominally peaceful farming-sim. Time to sharpen your pitchforks.

Cool wizards will battle in a royale manner in Spellbreak

What if battle royale but wizards? Okay, Battlerite Royale, sure. But what if battle royale but wizards and big flashy magic spells hurling whirlwinds and rocks and giant walls of fire and spaffing special effects all over? Ah, for that you'll want to look to Spellbreak, an upcoming battle royale starring cool wizards. Mate, even if you're not interested in battlers royale, you might want…

Battlefield V’s battle royale mode will have objectives and tanks

Last night, I stopped thinking about Battlefield V's battle royale mode as a semi-interesting inevitability and started getting excited. I'd just finished a three-hour stint in the open beta, when my fading memories of Battlefield's mesmerising war soup had been replaced with fresh ones. I quit out to find EA had dropped the first concrete details about what their spin on battle royale would involve,…

Last Tide is battle royale with sharks, out now in early access

What a fool! While I was having a disappointing time battling royale with dogs nipping at my ankles in Fear The Wolves, I could've been chumming the waters to draw sharks to bite off my foes' toes in Last Tide. Formerly known as King Tide, the undersea battle royale FPS from the studio behind Depth entered early access on Monday and I'm still pleased by…

Fear The Wolves enters early access, taking battle royale to Chernobyl

For stags and hens who want their last free nights more dangerous than a stay at Paradise Resort, Vostok Games today launched battle royale 'em up Fear The Wolves into early access. It follows the basic recipe of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds but takes stags and hens to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with added radiation, anomalies, hungry mutated wolves, and a whole load of jank. Vostok's claim…

Housemarque’s Stormdivers is a flashy battle royale

Now that Willennials have killed arcade games with our cold, dead hands, Nex Machina developers Housemarque have confirmed that their first steps outside their home genre in 25-odd years are indeed into the valley of battle royale. After cryptically announcing Stormdivers in April, Housemarque have now opened up and started shouting about it. Stormdivers is a third-person multiplayer battle royale 'em up, right, but also…

Mad Max-ish battle royale Fractured Lands slams into early access next week

Unbroken Studios's last-man-standing shooter Fractured Lands has earned my attention. Putting a Mad Max-inspired spin on an otherwise-familiar battle royale formula, everyone starts with their own ride. Assuming you can keep it fuelled, over the course of a match you can bolt on guns, spikes and additional armour to keep it rolling. After a brief run of closed testing, it's ready to launch into early…

King Tide is underwater battle royale with sharks

Hello, thalassophobes. King Tide is an upcoming battle royale about being launched into the ocean via torpedo, along with 99 other divers and going on a rampage while defending yourself from bloodthirsty sharks. Got it? Got it. It’s by the studio who made Depth, the multiplayer shooter of shark vs humanity. So, they were always well-placed to come up with “Plunkbat but subaquatic”. Sub-bat? Shark…

The Culling 2’s devs now face ‘some admittedly difficult discussions’

Alright. So this kind of thing isn't particularly fun. I love games and I love the people that make games and oh god do I want to make sure that (especially) indie creators get every chance to see their products treated well. No matter how you slice it, there's bad news regarding the newest game from Xaviant Games, and said news probably means there's a…

Early battle royaler The Culling is getting a sequel

Before there was Plunkbat and Fortnite, there was The Culling, swaggering into the twilight days of The Age Of Survival Games with a bare-faced but nonetheless accomplished multiplayer take on The Hunger Games - or, as we now call it/as we called it before The Hunger Games, battle royale. The lurid Culling burned bright for many months, as my recurring nightmares that I still have…

Rapture Rejects is battle royale in Cyanide & Happiness

The battle royale bandwagon continues to trundle along the great gaming highway, picking up anyone who can muster 100 or more unruly homicide fans. This time, the makers of near-the-knuckle comic Cyanide & Happiness are clambering aboard. Rapture Rejects is a top-down isometric battle royale, announced at the PC Gaming Show during E3. And it's set in a world that's been left behind by all the…

Mavericks will have a 1000-player battle royale mode

The last time we saw Mavericks: Proving Grounds, developers Automaton said they were going to have 400 murderers running around in the forest hunting each other and tracking footprints with a deep bloodthirst. Now they are promising battles of 1000 players, fighting across 100 square miles of “deformable” terrain. These are big claims, yet to be proven, but at the PC Gaming Show during E3,…

Battlefield V getting a battle royale mode

This being the year of our Molyneux 2018, yes of course Battlefield V will have a battle royale mode. Dice announced the mode during their E3 presentation, and sure, that's no surprise, especially as Cod Blops 4 will royale it up too. Battlefield Royale (as I imagine they'll call it?) won't be in the WW2 FPS at launch, arriving some time after, and details are…

Fortnite: Battle Royale’s 50v50 event mode is back

Fortnite: Battle Royale's world has experienced a lot of shake-ups lately. A gigantic comet destroyed part of the map. There's an alien God mucking about. There's a weirdo device about to be added. And now, the 50v50 mode has come back to lay waste to gigantic teams. It's a bit of a surprise to see 50v50 return amid everything else, but on the other hand,…
