Super Animal Royale Receives Spooktacular Halloween Update
I absolutely adored Super Animal Royale when I reviewed it for HPP a while back. I still play on a regular basis, so much to my delight, today marks the release of its adorably titled “Howloween” update.
The headline addition is the inclusion of the new game mode, “The Bwoking Dead” (honestly, try and find me another title with a stronger pun game, I dare you!). For anyone who wanted a change of pace from the regular battle royale antics, this sounds like it should shake up the formula and seems to be pulling influence from Halo’s much-loved infection mode. Supporting up to 40 players in squads of 4, 4 players will be selected at random to be infected with “The Cluckles”. This should result in their teammates also becoming afflicted with The Cluckles, and it’s then the job of the Survivors to avoid infection themselves at the hands of the zombie chicken horde. Infected players can look forward to enhanced speed and hearing to aid them in spreading The Cluckles to other players. Doesn’t that all sound clucking awesome?
As well as the new game mode, players should also keep an eye out for the new limited-time currency, “Candy Corn”, which has been dotted around the map. This currency can be used to purchase event-themed cosmetics. If the key art above is anything to go by, I expect to lose many hours in pursuit of these spooky goodies!
Besides the Halloween-themed additions, more permanent changes are also included as part of today’s update. The previously sparsely populated east side of the map has now been given a new landmark called “Pixile Port”. This should change the flow of play dramatically, especially in the next few days as is commonplace when battle royale titles add new points of interest to their maps. a whole host of balance and quality of life updates are also inbound, and you can check out the full suite of patch notes here.
You can find a trailer for the update below:
Will you be taking part in The Bwoking Dead and living out all your deranged zombie chicken fantasies? If so, jump in today and enjoy whilst you can before the event ends on November 9, 2021.
