It was revealed during Gamescom Opening Night Live that free-to-play battle royale Spellbreak will officially launch on Xbox next Thursday, September 3rd, and will feature cross-play and cross-progression with all other platforms.

Spellbreak is a multiplayer action-spellcasting game where players unleash their inner battlemage and wield two powerful magic gauntlets that blend devastating spell combinations to control the battlefield with fiery tornadoes, electrified gas clouds, and more.

Set in the Hollow Lands, players can explore the map to find tactical advantages and discover hidden chests that contain magical runes that give new abilities, including flight, teleport, and invisibility.

Here's what Seth Sivak, CEO of developer Proletariat had to say about the announcement:

“Since we first started creating Spellbreak, almost 1 million players have supported the game’s development by participating in our playtests and our community has grown to be one of the largest on Discord.

With innovations such as Cross-Progression and Cross-Play, players from around the world can play where they want with all of their friends regardless of platform. We can’t wait to talk more about our ongoing plans for new updates that that will reveal more of the deep, rich lore behind the world of Primdal, its people, and unlock exciting new game modes.”
