Seems like the buzz around Rumbleverse is pretty muted, but it’s very close to launching now on PS5 and PS4. This is the next big free-to-play, Battle Royale, multiplayer, live service from Epic Games, taking the blueprint of Fortnite and swapping weapons for the fight. It’s shaping up to be a chaotic good time, and new details on the PS Blog reveal that it will have more than just one mode on day one.
When the title arrives on August 11, you’ll be able to play Duos mode as well as fly solo. Going up against opponents with a buddy should be a laugh, and there are some gameplay tweaks to rebalance the action for teams of two. The basic idea is the same, however – stay inside the shrinking circle and be the last one standing.
The new Playground mode, on the other hand, is something different. As the name suggests, it lets you explore the whole city on your own. This allows you to familiarize yourself well with the map in order to know all its ins and outs. If you invite a friend to join you in Playground Mode, you will be able to battle and practice. In addition, training modules will be dotted around to give you some tips, and you can have fun with the game objects to understand them too.
Rumbleverse is only a few days away – are you going to Grapital City? Elbow drop the comments section below.
