MMORPG Skyforge gets a FPS twist with Battle Royale mode, coming to PS4 later this year

Dear players, we are happy to announce that soon the world of Aelion will receive a new mode for you to enjoy. Skyforge: Battle Royale is a new spin on the popular genre that will take place inside a virtual simulation created by a god.

The background story of Skyforge: Battle Royale

In Aelion, humans need the aid of divine beings, you – the players. While normally you’d go out and chase Demons, Phytonids and other aliens invading the world.

The Battle Royale is a virtual simulation for the mortal citizens of Aelion, where they fight for the status of becoming an Adept, an elite follower of a god. It is the new entrance exam, instituted by the gods with the help of divine technologies.


The flow of the game

You’ll be able to join a Battle Royale match from the start screen or from the Adventures menu, where you would usually select PVE and PVP activities.

In the lobby, you’ll be able to select a class with unique abilities attached to it, select if you want to play solo or in a group with friends. At the launch of this mode, we will support duos and teams of four.


Once you’ve started your match you’ll be able to select a spawn point for yourself. These spots are random each time you launch a match and will teleport you to your desired location.

We had many ideas on how to make this entry phase feel as a part of our designed world and a “teleportation inside a VR simulation” seemed like the most fitting one.

Landed in the virtual world, you’ll be able to collect weapons and armour with different grades quality. Hide from enemies, sneak up on them and strike the final blow.

We completely reworked the aiming system compared to known experience from Skyforge. Battle Royale will give you “that FPS” feeling when playing – and less of an MMORPG. It’s really two genres combined.


Additionally, we give you a bunch of objectives you can scout for during the battle. Air Drops will spawn with special loot. Mounts will help characters move quickly around the map. Special Monsters will also appear on special areas, offering a strategic place and as they will give much-desired loot.

Make sure to play strategically and outsmart your enemies.Skyforge Battle Royale will be available on PlayStation 4 later this year. In the meantime, get ready for the royal experience!
