After the success of mobile game giants Clash of Clans and Clash Royale, the developer Supercell is back with yet another game by the name of Brawl Stars. Brawl Stars is a new mobile multiplayer combat game in which players battle with each other using characters called Brawlers.
Players will fight with each other in a range of different game modes while collecting Crystals and taking out enemies along the way. By the looks of the stream, we can say that Supercell is trying to market Brawl Stars as a mobile eSports game complete with live commentary.
The top-down game sporting the same visuals that everyone is familiar with from previous Supercell games, Brawl Stars is a 3 vs. 3 basic MOBA experience. The game has many features that make it look like a MOBA like Dota 2 or League of Legends but the developer is not using the world MOBA for this game. It also features a shrinking map feature which makes it somewhat feel like a Bomberman game.
The game has four playing modes one of which is called Smash & Grab that looks like a mix of Capture the Flag and Sector Domination. The players will collect 10 Gems from an underground mine, located in the center of the map and hold them for a certain amount of time. The opposing team will try to steal the Gems and hence fun battles ensue.
Other game modes are Bounty, Heist, and Showdown. In Bounty, the players will eliminate the enemy players to earn stars. At the end of the match, the team with most stars will win the game. Heist is a timed game and teams will try to crack open other teams’ safe while defending their own. In showdown, 10 players will battle in a shrinking map to be the only one standing.
Brawlers are unique and each of the Brawler has a set of unique abilities which can be used against the enemies to destroy them. They can be upgraded by collecting Chips, Elixir and Coins.
As of now, Brawl Stars has been soft-launched only in Canada for iOS as most probably the developer wants to see the response it gets from the players. If this soft-launch is successful, the developers might look to expand it to other platforms and countries.
Most of the features of the game might be changed in the full final game and there is no guarantee as of yet that there will be a full proper release for this game as well. They are depending heavily to make the game better by all the feedback they will get from the soft launch so we can hope that this will be another trophy for Supercell’s wardrobe.
