Spellbreak release date and start time is fast approaching, with Proletariat about to launch their brand new Battle Royale game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PCs. Spellbreak is the latest new entry into the ever growing Battle Royale genre that Fortnite turned into a gaming sensation. But unlike Epic Games’ all conquering title, or other games of its ilk like Warzone or Apex Legends, Spellbreak tries something a bit different.
Instead of the guns that Fortnite or Warzone characters wield, Spellbreak players will use magic to deal damage to opposing characters. The upcoming free download also features gorgeous, Breath of the Wild-style cel-shaded graphics which give it a striking look.
Developers Proletariat have confirmed that Spellbreak will have a release date of Thursday September 3, and at launch play across a wide range of platforms will be supported.
The official Spellbreak Twitter posted: “#Spellbreak launches September 3, 2020 on PS4, PC, Xbox, and Switch! Free-to-play, cross-play, cross-party, and cross-progression on all platforms at launch. BECOME THE ULTIMATE BATTLEMAGE.”
In terms of a start time, the official Spellbreak website is running a countdown down till the game’s launch. And according to that countdown Spellbreak will launch at 3pm BST on Thursday September 3.
For those in other regions that’s 7am pacific time, 10am eastern time and 4pm CEST.
