Spellbreak is a Battle Royale game that brings something new to the table. While the vast majority of Battle Royale games are all about guns, this new title from Proletariat has players duking it out with powerful magical spells.

It's a pretty intriguing prospect, and it seems like fans have certainly latched on to the idea of this new free-to-play game. The developers have announced that this new game has already surpassed the 2 million players milestone between PC and consoles.
"WOW. It's only been 5 days since launch and #Spellbreak already has [2 million players]!" read a tweet on the game's official account. "Huge thank you to all of you Breakers out in the Hollow Lands!"
Spellbreak Shows New Battle Royales Can Still Succeed
Battle Royale games can be hit or miss. There are a lot of imitators seeking to capitalize on the success of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, but Spellbreak shows that there's a path to success: you have to bring something unique to the table.
Take Fall Guys, for instance. That game is also a Battle Royale, but there wasn't really anything like it before. Mediatonic's Creative Director wasn't on board with Fall Guys until he saw how it did something new with the genre.
Spellbreak looks like it might have just captured some of that same magic; the number of unique players in its first week certainly suggests that they're doing something right. Whether or not they can maintain that momentum, however, largely lies in the ability of the developers to hold the attention of the people already playing and bring new players into the mix.
If you're yearning for a new Battle Royale to play, this new game from Proletariat might be right up your alley! You can play Spellbreak for free on PC via the Epic Games Store. Console gamers can get it at their respective storefronts for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
