Coming to console for the first time and optimized for Xbox Series X and S, Naraka: Bladepoint bills itself as the best melee-based battle royale out there – so you better have a solid fighting game. Naraka uses a classic rock-paper-scissors style system, where charged attacks beat normal attacks, parries beat charged attacks, and normal attacks beat parries. Practice makes perfect and new players should definitely consider perfecting parries. Successfully executed parries allow you to disarm your opponents and launch into relentless counterattacks, leaving your opponent’s health and armor in tatters.

A unique 60-player battle royale, Naraka: Bladepoint sees your character engage in an exhilarating combination of melee action and parkour moves; so it’s important to make sure your character looks fantastic while performing all the moves. Fortunately, Naraka offers a huge range of character customizations, and while deep character customization is a core feature of most battle royales, this game goes above and beyond.
