Realm Royale Review: Unique Fable Battle Royale

Master your shooting skills and try to climb on tops of the leaderboard! You can download Realm Royale for your Xbox One on Xbox Live.
Graphics – 4.5/5
Though Realm Royale game is powered by the rather old Unreal Engine 3, it presents the quality of visuals that is comparable to the market leader, Fortnite. The whole thing looks like a fable cartoon, but it lacks the quality of shading and lighting.
Gameplay – 5/5
The main Realm Royale gameplay idea is quite similar to other games of the genre, such as Fortnite and PUBG. At the very beginning, you have to sign in, create your unique avatar, and, voilá, you are ready to fight.
Every deathmatch starts from a landing operation. You fly on an airship, choose a place, and jump down to land on a specific spot. Other 99 player perform the same action, but you can’t see where everyone falls. When you reach the ground, you have to start searching for the nearest loot-chests to grab a weapon.
Though it’s a fable universe, all guns are just stylized pistols, shotguns, sniper rifles, etc. However, you can also find magic swords and longbows. There’s also a cool feature that allows you to activate vehicles wherever you are. Most of them are fable animals, so they can walk on staircases and run over steep hills.
In Realm Royale latest version you can also choose one of 4 classes to get specific damage, power, and cooldown buffs. Every character type has preferable weapons and vehicles, so you can pick the one that matches your style.
Controls – 5/5
Comparison of the original PC version and the console reissue for this Realm Royale review showed that developers reworked controls. The gamepad input on Xbox is brilliantly optimized. It’s much better than when you connect a gamepad to a PC.
Replay Value – 5/5
Realm Royale full game is a frequently updated title with thousands of items for customization, multiple outlandish weapons, and the colossal battle map. There are so many features that anyone can develop a unique style of play. Massive deathmatches for 100 players are always extremely fun and thrilling.
Realm Royale is an excellent fable version of classic Battle Royale established by Fortnite. It presents unique battlegrounds, original weapons and transport, and nearly infinite libraries of clothes and items. It’s not that difficult to become competitive, so it’s a great option for all players who look for an unhurried multiplayer shooter. It’s also highly recommended to all fans of fable setting.
