The magic-focused battle royale title Spellbreak is going to be free to play. It launches later this year on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
That’s according to indie developer Proletariat, the studio behind the game. The company was founded in 2012 by a group of industry veterans from Harmonix, Turbine, and Insomniac.
“From the start, we wanted to make sure that it would be as easy as possible for Spellbreak players to play with their friends, and making the game free-to-play helps us reach that goal,” said CEO Seth Sivak.
Here’s how the studio describes the game:
Spellbreak is a AAA fantasy battle royale experience featuring epic magic combat and powerful spellcasting. Players choose a class, weave spectacular spell combinations, and fight to become an all-powerful battlemage. Featuring a deep item and class system, Spellbreak allows players to dominate the Hollow Lands as a solo competitor or conquer their foes with friends in a non-stop quest for survival.
