For anyone who is familiar with the old school platformer fighting style games like Super Smash Brothers Melee, or Super Smash Brother Brawl, this game “Brawlhalla” is a slightly watered down version of those. Its studio, Blue Mammoth Games, is now allowing users on the PS4 to sign up for its closed beta to help before the final product is complete.
Brawlhalla is similar to SSBM, but with some twists. You can pick up weapons during the match you are playing that could completely change your playstyle. The setting is also in a the place of the Gods, Valhalla. Odin has created a Grand Tournament in an attempt to prevent these warriors from tearing the place apart.
It is free-to-play and you can choose from a assortment of characters (some do not make sense to the theme, but to each their own) like vikings, ninjas, cowboys, werewolves, knights, androids, superheroes and plenty more.
It is not only for the casual fun, there is also a Competitive Brawlhalla. You can join ranked queues and work your way from Tin to Gold, or if you are good enough to Platinum or even Diamond. Tournaments, both online and off, are ongoing every weekend. They also have a yearly Brawlhalla World Championship.
