Bombergrounds: Battle Royale has been in development for over 2 years now.
This is one of the battle royal, short matches with saved statistics and customizable characters. As opposed to an beautiful open world environment such as World of Warcraft & Final Fantasy 14.
This game is still in Early Access but it is free currently on Steam. The official Early Access release date was earlier this much, the 7th to be exact, and since then, they have released very positive feedbacks.
The game is very straight forward, it’s bomberman but without the bomberman theme. You break crates and walls down via your bomb and be the last one standing.
Each match you will get a proportional exp based on your survival rank & kills, in additional to in-game currency which you can use to purchase cosmetic changes.
So, what does Fayie think, is the game really worth playing in 2021?
The controls is very smooth, nothing’s fancy about this, simply controls, WSAD movement and keyboard binds are completely changeable. Straight 5 stars due to doing exactly what it should be doing and set out to do.
F2P Friendly ★★★★★
it’s completely free game, from everything in-game the game itself, is currently free. Yes, they are paid elements to it, but they are completely cosmetic only. Whether you are a paying player or a free player, you have the exact same change of winning as the very next player. Making it a 100% F2P friendly game.
Cash Shop ★★★☆☆
The cash shop is more gacha than anything, you cannot purchase direct styles from what I see so far in the early access. (This may be subject to change when released. It’s either behind a loot box or a battle pass season.
Which isn’t terrible, but it can upset players as there is no certain chance of receiving what they are looking for after spending x amount either. In fact, there is a free way to get paid currency through the lottery wheel that is available each day.
The artwork and graphics is the chibi cartoony with animal style, I like it. For a game like this, it’s not bad at all. A 5 stars for Artwork from me. You start off as a cat, have I told you how much I love cats? Then, you can unlock bears, lions tigers as you continue to play.
This may not be a game you can play 10 hours each day, like MMOs or MOBAs, but this has it’s own place. Gather a group of 3 friends and a solid few hours a week can be very enjoyable.
