Updated December 11, 2018: Realm Royale is now available to everyone.
Battle royale games are becoming increasingly common ever since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds popularized the genre. While Fortnite has the greatest success story so far, there are many other developers adding their own twists. Realm Royale is a fantasy-themed battle royale experience. You can choose a class, then loot deadly weapons and powerful abilities to create your own champion. Exploration also plays an important role because you can traverse the world from horseback and craft legendary gear at forges.
Realm Royale isn't a traditional fantasy game or shooter. You can use shotguns and sniper rifles, but there are also staffs and other mythical weapons. Despite the fact that these weapons are on the opposite end of the spectrum, the title is surprisingly balanced with the exception of a few loadouts.
If you're in the market for a new battle royale experience, but are somewhat tired of modern weapons, be sure to give Realm Royale a go. It's free-to-play so it won't cost you anything! We don't know when the beta will start, or when the actual game will launch, but it must be pretty soon given how previous Hi-Rez Studios' games have launched. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
