Description

Outworld Battlegrounds is the first time a top-down battle royale game has been done right thanks to its tension building vision system. Like most top-down games the environment around the player is totally visible however, any player or dynamic object that would otherwise be hidden from your direct line of sight is not. This allows for the kind of paranoia a battle royale game should produce. Players drop onto a distant planet and must fight for their lives. Outworld Battlegrounds is a fast paced, 2D, top-down, battle royale shooter. Starting with nothing but a knife players must hope they find something with a bit more of a plasma punch before their competitors do.

Features

  • Top-down with a limited line of sight - heart palpitating paranoia
  • Character customization - stand out from the crowd
  • Play solo or with a team - lone wolf or kill in a pack
  • Respawn teammates - there‚Äôs always hope
  • Spectating - watch friends avenge your death
  • Gruesome fun - make enemies explode!
