This coming winter, one of the industry’s most popular free-to-play experiences will come to both Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. We’re talking about Brawlhalla, an incredibly successful title that currently boasts more than fifteen million players across the PC and PlayStation 4 platforms.
A somewhat retro-inspired brawler, this ad and loot box free experience falls under the reaches of Ubisoft’s publishing arms. As such, that is who revealed this news today.
For more on Brawlhalla, see the following lines of text, which we borrowed from today’s release:
Odin, King of the Gods, built a heaven for warriors and called it Valhalla. On his command, Valkyries, beautiful goddesses of war, scoured the universe for the greatest warriors to fill this hall. To Odin’s surprise, the Valkyries brought back not only vikings, but legendary warriors of every description, and soon pirates, cowboys, Mongol warriors, Amazons, even monsters and aliens roamed the hall.
While waiting for Ragnarok, the warriors become bored. Constant battle spilled out of the Great Hall, and Asgard was smashed to rubble again and again. Odin, pulling his hair out in a last moment of desperation, set up the grand tournament. Now, the best warriors from every time and place fight to become champion, while the Valkyries constantly venture far and wide to bring back warriors who will earn them honor in Brawlhalla.
Developed by Blue Mammoth, Brawlhalla is an epic free-to-play platform fighting game that brings players to the fight for glory in the halls of Valhalla on PlayStation 4 and Steam, and will release on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this winter. Choosing from over 40 unique characters, players can jump into single-player and co-op modes as well as online and local competitions. The third annual Brawlhalla World Championship will take place at Dreamhack Atlanta, November 16-18.
Brawlhalla will be released onto both platforms on November 6th.
