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 Fortnite clone.

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

Set in Grapital City, Rumbleverse brings a touch of BR-style wrestling that players love. There are a lot of things players can expect 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 from a cannon, take to the streets and prepare to fall! The place where you land It’s up to you, but watch out, there’s chaos around every corner and on top of the tallest skyscraper!Jump from rooftop to rooftop and smash open crates in search of weapons and upgrades.Every turn is a new opportunity to experience new moves and perks that will give you the edge in your quest for glory.”

It will be free when it launches and each lobby will have up to 40 players thrown into the action. Customization will also be a huge factor, with cosmetics and character creation taking center stage.

A lot of content has been created around the game so far by different creators during playtesting for potential players to see. He features his version of a storm, designed as an enclosed wrestling ring with four corners.

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

When to expect Rumbleverse

The game has gone through several network tests, the most recent being on June 11. Another is scheduled for July but has no definite date.

Rumbleverse was originally slated for release in February. Iron Galaxy and Epic Games decided it was best to delay the Battle Royale title until they felt it was perfect.

With this delay, no new release date has been given. Players don’t know when the title will be available outside of its playtests, though Iron Galaxy is adamant that it will launch fully in 2022.

When it launches, players can access Grapital City via PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Windows PC through the Epic Games Store.

Console subscriptions will not be required for free BR, but a stable internet connection is required. Players who can log in will find support for numerous controllers, microtransactions, and a Battle Pass.
