Its been a long road for Stunlock Studios, and few would have ancitipated just how successful Battlerite would be (well, except me). The free to play launch is set for November 8, 2017, with a full line-up of new things for the game arriving before and after. A new UI, new Champions, a new Game Mode and much more are on the table, with 2018 also boasting an impressive timeline. You can still purchase Battlerite early access now, or you can choose to hold out a little longer. There's also a new patch, bringing several tweaks to Champions and their kits. I'll be covering a lot more Battlerite in the coming weeks.

Skövde, Sweden - September 20th, 2017 - Independent developer Stunlock Studios today announced that its competitive, action-packed, PvP arena brawler, Battlerite, the spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Bloodline Champions, will finally move from Steam Early Access into a highly anticipated free to play commercial launch on November 8th. Battlerite is a fast-paced team arena brawler focused on competitive PvP combat. Select a champion and fight side by side with teammates to the sound of the roaring crowd in vibrant, colosseum-style surroundings. 

To celebrate over 1 million downloads since launch, Battlerite will be playable completely for free during the upcoming Free Week from September 25th through to October 1st. Throughout the Free Week, Battlerite will be on sale by 50% on Steam Early Access for $9.98 / €9,98.

“We are super excited to enter ‘A New Era’ with Battlerite heading into a full free to play commercial launch this November”, said Peter Ilves, Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “For the occasion, we are offering Battlerite free of charge for one week from September 25th together with an incredible sale across the board on Steam which will give new players a taste of what they can expect.
