The Game In Detail

Battle World is a globally appealing mid-core battle royale for the masses. The players are dropped into maps modeled after famous global locations and towns, where they have to loot and fight against others to be the last one standing.

What makes the game fun?

Battle World has a very dynamic core gameplay loop, where the player lands on the same map, searches for guns and fight others, and moves to the safe zone but their experiences are different every single time. The game provides endless replay value because each match is different from the last. The game also strengthens its core gameplay loop with easy-to-pick-up shooting mechanics, with a variety of weapons, the thrill of surviving till the last combined with lovable and relatable characters.

Drop Zone Selection

Players start out in the Zone selection screen where they get to choose their drop locations. Players will be able to select one of nine zones in the classic map of Battle World that is displayed on the left. The spawn locations in each zone are predefined. Once all the players have joined and the lobby capacity of 16 players has been met, the game will start after a short 5-second countdown.

Early game

The game starts with the player being deployed in the selected zone. The spawn points in each zone are predefined; the game starts when the lobby capacity is met after a 5-second countdown. (the game starts at the same time for everyone). The players will start off with a pistol that can be found in their primary weapon slot with unlimited ammo capacity. The reason behind starting with a pistol is that if used efficiently it offers the player a fighting chance against others in scenarios where their secondary gun is out of ammo or that they have to defend themselves at the start of the game where they couldn’t yet find a secondary gun. The pistol cannot be swapped out for another gun.

Weapon systems and Looting

Players will have to pick up weapons that are scattered across the map. The players will be able to pick up weapons by standing over them. Players can freely switch between weapons simply by clicking on the respective weapon slots. The pistol cannot be swapped out for another weapon, this is done because we do not have a melee option in the game yet and we want the pistol to be an option for players to fight back in case they run out of ammo or can't find a gun.

Safe zone and storm

Players will get notified about the enclosing storm and will be prompted to head to the safe zone. Safe zones are circular safe zones that randomly spawn in different locations of the map after set intervals, players are forced to move to the safe zones or run the risk of being damaged or killed by the storm. Once a safe zone is announced, the storm will slowly move towards the safe zone, damaging everyone inside it. Once the storm reaches the safe zone, a new and smaller safe zone is announced and players once again have to travel to it. The safe zones keep getting smaller and smaller, forcing players into a tight battle zone. The player will be represented by a white circle in their minimap, if the player is outside the safe zone, their circular icon will be accompanied by a white arrow that directs the player to the safe zone. Each game has 4 safe zones and 5 closing storms, the 5th, and final storm will close in and cover the whole map, damaging all the players inside and the last surviving player wins. The safe zones are always randomly decided by the system in order to keep the core gameplay dynamic and ever-changing, players will have to adapt and overcome the new safe zone in order to survive.

Health and shield system

Players will have 100 health and 100 shield points, a combined 200 hitpoints. when this number reaches 0, the player will die. These points can be reduced by being damaged by a weapon (number depending on the type of weapon) and from being damaged by the storm. Health and shield can be topped by using health and shield kits respectively, standing over them the same way the player picks up a weapon will activate them. Once complete, the player will instantly recover 100 points depending on the activated kit.
