One could argue that the battle royale scene has become incredibly stale with a bunch of clones that have been looking to capitalize on the popularity of other titles in the genre. Since then, it has become a bit of a juggernaut with pros and cons on the industry. Spellbreak now adds itself to the long lineup of battle royale games, and while we’ve seen plenty come and go, it’s nice that this one has come through and finally delivers an experience with seamless cross-play and cross-progression across all platforms, leads the way in consumer respect, and offers an appealing look with a magical take.

Spellbreak launched on all major platforms this week, including Switch. See how the Switch version compares to the PS4 edition with the video below.

Proletariat has opened up about the Switch version of Spellbreak, the upcoming fantasy action battle royale game.

CEO Seth Sivak mentioned to Nintendo World Report that most of the work is being handled internally, though the team is receiving assistance from “several outstanding external companies on different parts of the game”. Although the texture quality and material quality have been “slightly scaled back” and the models are “slightly lower details”, a primary goal has been to preserve “great performance while also making the game as beautiful as possible.”

Sivak’s full words:

The free-to-play, magic-focused battle royale Spellbreak will support cross-progression between Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at launch, developer Proletariat has announced.

Progression, customization, and stats can be carried over no matter which platform you’re playing on as long as you create an account. Cross-platform squads are also supported, along with the ability to find friends across all versions of the game.

Going free-to-play and ensuring the game will be cross-play on day one reinforces our goal of making sure Spellbreak will be accessible to as many people as possible.”
