Independent developer Stunlock Studios has announced that its new free-to-play online battle arena Battlerite has been officially released on Steam. Additionally, the developers have included a launch patch including a new fighter, ‘Thorn,’ 200 new items including rare weapons, outfits, victory poses, legendary color variants and seven additional music tracks.

Players can choose from 22 different heroes with specializations in melee, ranged and support combat. Battles are quick, requiring players to have superior reflexes and precise timing in order to execute deadly strikes on enemy teams.

“It’s been one hell of a year since we entered Steam Early Access and we can finally deliver on our promise to launch Battlerite as a free-to-play game, making it easily accessible to all PvP arena brawler fans to enjoy,” says Peter Ilich, the Game Director at Stunlock Studios. “As of today, new players can join the Battlerite community for free in rapid fire, competitive battles requiring to prove your mettle. So jump in an show off your skills on the fighting ground. The arena awaits, brawlers!”

Permanent access to a certain character can be unlocked via in-game or in-app purchases. Through the “Champion’s Pack,” players can gain permanent access to all 22 current champions as well as future champions as they are released. The “Champion’s Pack” is $29.99/27.99€/23.79£.
