The martial arts Battle Royale will be making its way onto consoles, as 24 Entertainment reveals gameplay on the PlayStation 5.
Naraka: Bladepoint garnered a lot of attention during its presentation on this year’s E3. The game attracted over 136,000 concurrent players on Day One of its final beta release. At that time, it was only announced to get a PC release slated for August 12, 2021. Now, 24 Entertainment has announced that it will soon be available on consoles too, starting with PS5.
The Chinese developer has revealed that they have been working on the console release. However, we do not have an official release date yet. Moreover, 24 Entertainment has not yet revealed the full list of consoles that will get the Battle Royale. Therefore, there is a high probability of it being next-gen only.

Naraka: Bladepoint will be a 60 player Battler Royale with a strong focus on melee-attack. Players can use a range of weapons like chainsaws, swords, spears, and fists for close combats. Moreover, ranged weapons like Bows are also available, as revealed in the gameplay video. Furthermore, players can also make use of their grappling hooks to create the perfect ambush.
The game’s unique combat system sets it apart from all the other Battle Royales in the video game industry. Starting from the samurai armours, weapons to the visually aesthetic sceneries makes it reminiscent of Japanese Role-Playing games.
Apart from the 60-player Battle Royale mode, the game also offers a duel mode between two players, 3v3 combat mode, and a PvE mode.
During its final beta released in June, the game reached a peak of 161,000 concurrent players in a day. Moreover, it made it into the list of Steam’s top 10 most played games. The price listing on Steam shows $15.99 USD for the base game, $27.99 USD for the Deluxe Edition and $39.99 USD for the Ultimate Edition. However, the game’s price on the next-gen console may differ unless announced otherwise.
