The CBT sign-up is now open on BATTLE CRUSH’s official website. The CBT will be available in 25 countries in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. It will be playable on Nintendo Switch, Steam, and Google Android – with cross-play support.

In BATTLE CRUSH, players will fight with their chosen characters, called Calixers, to become the strongest player out of 30 and be the last one standing as the ground collapses beneath their feet while enemies come from all directions. It offers a dynamic, strategic brawl battle experience with simple and easy controls. With its unique battle arena, the game also provides various play modes that up to 30 players can enjoy concurrently. A diverse range of Calixers, inspired by mythological figures with their own story and skills, will be available to choose from.

The game offers three different modes that players can choose depending on their tastes: Battle Royale, Brawl, and Build-Up.

  • In Battle Royale, up to 30 players fight to determine the final winner. It can be played in Team mode, where players can join a party of up to three to fight as a team, or in Solo mode, where each player competes individually.
  • The Brawl is where a single player can select three different Calixers with which to fight. Set on a smaller map compared to Battle Royale, it adds excitement and tension to the battle. Both Team and Solo modes are also available.
  • The Build-Up is a one-on-one mode, where the first to take three games out of five becomes the winner. Before starting the game, players can plan their strategy by evaluating their opponents’ character choices. After each round, the defeated player gets the chance to select items before the next round begins, allowing for an unpredictable and fun experience until the very end.

For those who sign up for BATTLE CRUSH’s upcoming CBT, players can invite up to three friends and collect rewards that can be used during the Test. Players can receive three invite codes for each account. When each code is redeemed by a friend, both the inviter and invitee will receive in-game currency – Crystals – that can be used to purchase Battle Pass during the CBT.
