Stunlock Studios has released an additional new champion to their popular arena brawler, Battlerite this. Raigon is a flexible melee character, skilled in two-handed swordsmanship and martial arts. He was a well-respected figure among the kingdom’s warriors, until he was exiled due to the manipulations of Pestilus. For now, the arena serves as a decent place to find work and set the wheels in motion for his retaliation.
Stunlock Studios partners up with major organizations Beyond The Summit and Twitch for “Enter The Arena”, the biggest Battlerite Tournament held so far. The event has a total prize pool of $10,000 and will be running simultaneously in Europe and North America.
“Enter The Arena is the perfect event for kicking off the competitive scene and showing off the game’s potential in Esports. We’re hoping to not only offer an entertaining broadcast, but to also introduce the game’s intricacies to fresh audiences, newer players as well as esports fans.” says Alexander Hermansson, Head of Esports at Stunlock Studios.
