Tetris Royale will offer battle royale style gameplay for mobile devices including iOS and Android.
Tetris Royale is a collaboration between The Tetris Company and N3twork, and "will feature a variety of game modes, from the hallmark 100-player Tetris Royale mode to massive daily competitions of thousands of players to solo Marathon mode where players can hone their Tetris skills".
The game will be similar to Tetris 99, which released earlier this year for Nintendo Switch. The newest installment in the video game franchise is called Tetris Royale and it works exactly how you'd expect: 100 players participate at the start of the battle but only the last one standing is the victor. Tetris fans can expect to see a Tetris Royale beta game arrive some time later this year, but it's unclear when the final game will launch in the app stores and whether it will be free to download.
In true "live service" fashion, there will be daily challenges to complete, cosmetic customization rewards, as well as power-ups and boosters that you'll be able to use in-game. Tetris Royale is meant to be a "fresh Tetris [experience]" that will harness the "global popularity" of the franchise.
Maya Rogers, President and CEO of Blue Planet Software, commented saying, "Tetris Royale is just the start, and one that we think players will really enjoy". It is said to be the first game which will appear as part of the new partnership, with more expected to follow as the multiyear deal progresses. While we wait for additional information on Tetris Royale, what are your thoughts?
In context: Battle royale (BR) games are all the rage lately, and if the wild success of Fortnite and Apex Legends is anything to go by, it's a fairly profitable genre to get into.
