Spellbreak, the magical battle royale game, is coming to PS4

Sling spells to be the last team standing

Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

During its December State of Play, Sony announced the battle royale game, Spellbreak, is coming to PlayStation 4.

From developer Proletariat Inc., Spellbreak takes the traditional battle royale genre and adds magic. In the State of Play trailer, a group of three players lands in front of a castle and square off against another team. The witches and wizards quickly break formation and start attacking each other with powerful magic spells.

The game plays in third person, and has a colorful, medieval vibe to its environment. The spells themselves are elemental. Players launch aerial lightning balls at each other, or cover the ground in ice — which one witch then slides on for a boost of speed.

Spellbreak launched in alpha on PC earlier this year. Exclusive to the Epic store, players can buy into the game to start playing now with the founders edition.

The beta for Spellbreak hits PS4 in spring 2020.
