Epic Games has been amazing the battle royale lovers for a long period of time with its brilliant collection of games. However, this time the company has tried to follow an unconventional approach in the battle royale genre. Epic Games has collaborated with Iron Galaxy to launch the wrestling-themed battle royale Rumbleverse on August 11, 2022. Furthermore, the company has announced that Rumbleverse would be completely free to play.
Rumbleverse is the latest game to take a different approach to the popular battle royale genre by focusing on wrestling rather than firearms. The game, which is played in a third-person perspective, involves 40 wrestlers who are dumped into Grapital City with only melee strikes and wrestling moves at their disposal and the objective of being the last wrestler standing. The game has gone through multiple closed beta tests and was supposed to be published in February before being postponed.
