Next-gen visuals and immersive gameplay

Featuring real-time dynamic rendering, Arena Breakout boasts jaw-dropping lighting and stunning shadow effects that elevate the gameplay to whole new heights. Not only does the game look and feel like you're right there duking it out with other contenders on the battlefield, but it also offers immersive Volumetric Cloud technologies to keep the gameplay as engaging as possible.

You can look forward to over 1,200 sound effects that boost the impact of every shot fired and every enemy spotted, as well as realistic gunplay you can tinker around with as you build your weapons cache.

Tactical combat and community trading

Embark on covert missions and tactical ops and prep with the proper gear from your inventory. While you can maximise your best weapon on the battlefield, you can also engage in some open market trading to put a price on your goods. Players can easily trade within the community and set their prices to make the economy thrive.

As for the combat itself, you can gear up for high stakes with every new mission where bountiful rewards and precious loot are up for grabs. In Tac Ops, you can put your skills to the test in the Dark Zone filled with hostiles and aim to fulfil your mission objective as an agent. On the other hand, Covert Ops lets you step in as a Rogue - here, you'll have to live off randomly generated gear against Rogue bosses and undercover Tac Ops agents.

Unique maps with varied gameplay

The Farm can be found in the plains region of Central Marulos, while The Valley is located in the coastal region of Easter Kamona. The Northridge, on the other hand, is located in the Onotos Mountains.

These maps have their own missions and spawn points, and you'll have to take care of yourself to make it out of each mission unscathed. In particular, different parts of your body can be injured during the skirmish, but fret not - you can still patch yourself up with the provisions you can loot to keep your health status in tip-top shape.

Gear and guns a-blazin'

Of course, to boost your survivability out there in the field, you'll need to pack enough raw firepower to keep the enemies at bay. The game boasts a host of different combinations when it comes to gunsmithing, and you can prioritise accuracy, speed or power from over 700 parts to deal as much damage as you can.

If you’re eager to take a first look at Arena Breakout ahead of its global launch, you can join the CBT right now by downloading the game via the Google Play Store.
