  • 345


The class-based battleground game, Realm Royale is back with a fascinating new update to be released soon!

For those unaware of the game, Realm Royale is, as stated, a class based battleground style game developed by HiRez Studios. Upon its initial release, they game drew major attraction for its new take on the genre even getting big names such as Ninja to give the game a try. 

 

The game features 4 playable classes;

The Warrior who excels at close range combat with his signature weapons, a Longsword, Throwing Hammers and Throwing Axes.
The Hunter who excels at mid range combat with her signature weapons, a Longbow, Crossbow and Arbalest.
The Assassin who excels at long and close range combat with his signature weapons, a Sniper Rifle, Shredder, and Heirloom Rifle.
The Mage who excels at mid and close range combat with her signature weapons, a Frost Staff, Fire Staff, and Lightning Staff.

Class Abilities;

These individual classes also have their own abilities of 3 different categories, Movement Abilities, Support Abilities, and Damage Abilities.

Foraging System;

The game implements a unique foraging system where you can spend shards that you've accumulated by 'disenchanting' (essentially destroying) weapons, or abilities found on your journey, to create either Epic or Legendary equipment or a revive for fallen team members. 

What's New?;

  • A new upgrade feature. 
    • Previously, when you foraged an item you would either be getting an Epic or Legendary item randomly for the same price and it would often be disappointing when you pull an Epic. Well now there will be a new upgrade feature to allow you to upgrade your weapons and abilities so pulling that Epic instead of a Legendary no longer means you have to just deal with it, now it just takes another trip to the forage instead.
  • Once the update releases, the community will be getting all new weekly limited time events. Not much is known just yet about what those events will be or what the rewards may be but it's something to keep you logging in every week that's for sure!
  • 2 New abilities will be added to the game. The last time the game received a new ability was around June last year with the ability being the Skull of Chaos which when thrown, bounces between enemies, dealing damage. It is unknown what these 2 new abilities will consist of.
  • A rework for Outpost, a small, mid-west town as well as other smaller map adjustments
  • Bug fixes and balance changes.

 

I hope this update brings much more activity to the game and I hope to see you all of the battleground!

Unfortunately, Realm Royale is as good as dead. This is probably a last attempt to get some money out of our pockets before they close down this project for good.

Unfortunately yeah, if they put more attention to the game and kept updates coming it'd probably be able to survive a lot longer. I enjoy the game still so I'm hoping this update does at least something to help the community grow even just a little.
