A brand new battle royale was unveiled at the Future Games Show Gamescom 2023 showcase. Outrage is set to launch next year for PC with this 32-player, melee-based brawler offering something distinct in what is undoubtedly the most competitive video game genres around.
The meteoric rise of the battle royale, and the sustained success of games like Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Warzone 2 has been a real delight in recent years. But for those of you out there who aren't a massive fan of shooters, however, there's little to grab ahold of. Enter Outrage, the melee-based brawler in which you and your buddies will be able to punch, kick, and brutalize your way to success – with your avatar steadily growing in physical size the more sustained damage you are able to output.
It's a compelling (and admittedly silly) concept but one we are keen to see more of, particularly with Outrage offering up a selection of tightly-congested, largely-destructible environments to battle across. Whether you're unleashing your fists on an unsuspecting party or picking your buddies up and hauling them into death traps, Outrage looks like it's going to be a hell of a lot of fun.
Outrage is expected to launch in spring 2024 on PC via Steam from Hardball Games, a new independent studio founded to deliver satisfying multiplayer experiences. If you want to learn more, don't forget to wishlist Outrage on Steam, and you can join up to the studio's Discord now to get involved with the beta testing community on the road to release.
