From deadly demons to pesky players, Hunter’s Arena: Legends has it all. And the best bit? It’s coming to PlayStation Plus for the entirety of August.
If you’ve never heard of Hunter’s Arena: Legends, let us enlighten you. It’s essentially a strange take on a battle royale, borrowing mechanics from RPG games. While it blends PvE and PvP together, developer Mantisco does a good job of building the excitement as the game progresses – something that’s key for a game that only offers 30-player brawls.
So if Hunter’s Arena: Legends caught your eye at the recent Sony State of Play, we’ve put together a little run down of the information we have so far. As such, here’s everything we know so far about the battle royale, including the Hunter’s Arena: Legends release date, details on its console launch, crossplay, and more.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends release date
When is Hunter’s Arena: Legends coming out? Well, although the game is currently available to play in early access on Steam, the Hunter’s Arena: Legends release date is August 3, 2021.
This marks the day that the game will leave early access and the first time it’ll be available to play on PS4 and PS5.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends gameplay
When Hunter’s Arena: Legends first made its debut on PC, it was to mixed reception. But it seems Mantisco has taken on player feedback for full release if the latest Sony State of Play is anything to go by.
But what is Hunter’s Arena: Legends? Well, it’s a melee battle royale RPG hybrid where you’re thrown into an East Asian world as a Hunter.
While you can work your way through dungeons to level up in Hunter’s Arena, you do have to be careful of other Hunters. In this 30-player free-for-all, you’ll have to utilise your environment to nail a lethal blow on your enemies.
HUNTER’S ARENA: LEGENDS Modes
There are three modes in Hunter’s Arena: Legends. These are:
- Tag Match
Solo and Trio are like standard battle royale modes, but in Tag Match, you’ll go toe to toe with another team of three in a small arena.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends Hunters
There will be 17 Hunters on offer inside the game and they all have different skillsets and ranges.
Close range Hunters will deal greater amounts of damage up close and are great for stealth plays, while range Hungers are great for pinging enemies from afar.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends PS PLUS
Hunter’s Arena will be available to play for free via PS Plus in August. This was confirmed during Sony’s State of Play in July.
You’ll be able to pick up the game via the store from August 3 – September 6. If you miss out during this window, you’ll have to pay $16.78 / £15.49 / €16.78 for the pleasure.
Hunter’s Arena: Legends crossplay
Will Hunter’s Arena: Legends have crossplay? Absolutely. Mantisco has confirmed there will be full crossplay in the game between PC, PS4, and PS5.
This should help boost the playerbase numbers, especially as the game leaves early access.
That’s everything we know about Hunter’s Arena: Legends for now, but we’ll update this guide if we hear anything new.
