After months of rumours and leaks, Realm Royale has finally been released on the Nintendo Switch. Thanks to the lovely people over at Hi-Rez Studios, our senior video producer Alex Olney has been able to take an early look at the Founder's Pack offering.

If you haven't heard about this game before, it's described as a class-based battle royale where a large number of players fight to be the last individual or team standing on the battlefield. The classes put a spin of the genre, allowing each player to unlock different abilities and work towards unique end goals over the course of a match. You can even craft your very own weapons!

In the above video, you'll get to see how the average game in Realm Royale unfolds. One interesting difference to a lot of other titles within this genre is how you're transformed into a chicken or some other creature (depending on your cosmetic) when you die in battle. If you can survive long enough in this vulnerable state, you can eventually return to battle in your original form. There are also mounts, which make traveling across the battlefield a lot easier.
