Battlerite is a new arena brawler that’s been near the top of Steam’s charts for a week, with no signs of slowing down. It looks like a MOBA, walks like a MOBA, and even talks like a MOBA, but reviewers love it because it actually isn’t a MOBA.
Battlerite takes the basic MOBA foundation and strips away lanes, farming, items, and the million year span—during which multiple species are born and extinguished, and the salty tears of negligent gods form into entire worlds—before something actually happens.
In short, players jump right into gritty, skillshot-based team fights. They’re fast, exciting, and hella satisfying.
