Made-in-India mobile multiplayer shooter adds new location, Squad BR mode, and more
Battle Stars: Battle Royale, the made-in-India mobile multiplayer shooter, has crossed five million players since its launch in June, becoming developer SuperGaming's fastest-growing game. To celebrate the milestone, and with Independence Day fast approaching, it's getting a new map inspired by the city of New Delhi.
The new map, which is now live across Android and iOS, features familiar locations such as the India Gate, Red Fort, and Connaught Place. It also includes location-specific sound effects such as the chatter among the crowds and some new emotes conveying the local slang used in Delhi.
In addition to the new map, Battle Stars is also getting a Squad BR mode that lets you team up with up to two other players. This mode is perfect for players who want to work together to survive and emerge as the last team standing.
Battle Stars was originally a small game mode within SuperGaming's popular social deduction game Silly Royale. It was so popular that it was spun off into a standalone shooter. Another contributing factor to its popularity was its collaboration with YouTuber Techno Gamerz.
SuperGaming is also working on a standalone Indo-futuristic battle royale called Indus. In Indus, players drop into the floating island map of Virlok to scavenge for supplies, survive, and kill anyone who stands in their way to emerge as the last man standing.
SuperGaming has partnered with Google to add support for Project Gameface in Indus. This will allow players to control in-game actions using head movements and facial expressions. This is aimed at those suffering from cognitive and motor challenges.
Bandai Namco Entertainment, the publishers of Dark Souls and Elden Ring games, invested in SuperGaming in March to build out its ‘IP metaverse.'
This is just the beginning for Battle Stars and SuperGaming. With its innovative gameplay and engaging content, Battle Stars is sure to continue to grow in popularity in the years to come.
