Battle Royale games live and die by their popularity. Thankfully developer Proletariat’s new free-to-play Battle Royale Spellbreak has proven successful since its September 3 launch, reaching five million players worldwide. Not exactly Fortnite-level numbers, but at least rising to the top of an increasingly crowded genre.

Spellbreak is an online-multiplayer action game that trades guns for spells. Players choose one of six battlemage classes. Battlemages wield gauntlets that cast a variety of action-oriented spells, such as fireballs, tornadoes, and electric gas clouds. The world of the Hollow Lands is filled with hidden chests, magic runes, and secret routes to gain advantages over your enemies.

The five million announcement includes a few other fun stats, such as four million hours watched on twitch, and 25 billion spell damage. Spellbreak also has a popular Discord server with over 300,000 members.

Spellbreak supports cross-play and cross-progression on Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. Using a single Spellbreak account, you can continue to unlock new customizations and earn rewards no matter the platform you’re playing on.

Spellbreak is free-to-play on PC, PS4, Switch, and XBO. It’s rated T for Teen.
