nWay, the developer of Power Rangers: Legacy Wars and WWE Undefeated and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, announced that its multiplayer battle royale game Battlepalooza is now available for iOS and Android devices. The over-the-top battle royale pits 24 live contestants against each other for exclusive prizes and valuable gear, all in arenas based on real-world cities utilizing actual geospatial data from the Google Maps Platform.
Designed for players of all skill levels, Battlepalooza’s combat utilizes a unique blend of strategy, skill, and a bit of luck — fast reflexes and quick trigger fingers must be supplemented by tactical thinking. The game’s arena-based battles are large-scale, high-action brawls that rely on the equipment loadout of a Role-Playing Game (RPG) and the character progression of a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA). The game’s arsenal of outrageous weapons creates a wholly unique gameplay experience on the go: gravity bombs, invisibility gear, sticky honey guns, and other wildly imaginative weapons are all at your disposal as you take on the competition.
Battlepalooza allows up to 24 players to team up with their friends in two or three groups to play together with a drop-in drop-out feature for easy matchmaking. The game uses the nWayPlay social platform for the friends’ list and the chat system and supports creating team codes for streamers to allow their viewers to drop in on their game sessions easily.
Battlepalooza’s premise is a worldwide battle royale game show that utilizes virtual arenas based on real-world cities. The winning players and teams are awarded NCoins that can be used to purchase unique, limited edition skins for both weapons and characters. These limited edition skins can be traded among players in the game’s marketplace feature.
Battlepalooza was developed in collaboration with Google‘s Real-World Games team and used the Google Maps Platform to transform real-world cities into playable battle arenas. The game will initially feature Las Vegas and San Francisco, with more city arenas added continually.
