A battle royale like Fortnite but without weapons

Epic Games will soon release a new Battle Royale title by the name of Rumbleverse.

Many compare it to Fortnite simply because it belongs to the Battle Royale genre, but Iron Galaxy, the team behind its development, hopes it will become much more than a clone of Fortnite.

Instead of building and shooting, players will take on the role of a professional fighter. They will use their wrestling moves and various in-game items to be the last Rumbler standing.

Set in Grapital City, Rumbleverse puts a BR-style fighting twist that players love. There’s a lot for players to look forward to in the upcoming game, according to the Epic Games Store listing:

“Customize your fighter by mixing and matching hundreds of unique items and stand out from the crowd. Launch yourself from a cannon, jump into the streets and prepare to take down! Where you land is up to you, but be careful: there is Chaos in every corner and on top of the tallest skyscraper! Jump from roof to roof and smash open crates in search of weapons and upgrades. Each round is a new opportunity to discover new moves and perks that will give you the upper hand in your quest for glory.”

It will be free-to-play when it launches, and each lobby will have up to 40 players in the action. Customization will also be a huge factor, with cosmetics and character creation being the main focal point.

So far, a lot of content has been created around the game from different creators during playtesting for potential players to check out. He shows his version of a storm, designed as a wrestling ring with four corners.

Each character can use signature moves often seen in actual wrestling, such as kicks, elbows, clotheslines, and punches. Players can even get their hands on items like baseball bats and steel chairs.

When to expect Rumbleverse

The game has gone through multiple network tests, most recently on June 11. Another is scheduled for July but does not have a definite date.

Rumbleverse was originally scheduled to release in February. Iron Galaxy and Epic Games decided that it would be best to delay the battle royale title until they felt it was perfect.

With that delay, no new release date was given. Players aren’t sure when the title will be available outside of its playtests, though Iron Galaxy insists it will be fully released in 2022.

When it launches, players will be able to enter Grapital City via PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC via the Epic Games Store.

No console subscriptions will be needed to play BR for free, but a stable internet connection is required. Players who can connect will find support for numerous controllers, microtransactions, and a Battle Pass.
