Ubisoft's free-to-play Brawlhalla has been steadily growing in popularity over the last year; it's a title that has been around for a number of years but has certainly seen a recent improvement in fortunes. Now it's heading into its latest seasonal event with Heatwave 2021, which will include Switch along with various other platforms.

There's lots going on and this official page has the full breakdown. In terms of headline additions that players can find now, there are a whole load of seasonal skins and items for the broad cast and beyond. Aside from skins there'll be some extra goodies (below):

  • Water balloons that replace snowballs!
  • +250 bonus Gold per login!
  • A summer fun UI Takeover with new main menu music.
  • A summer themed Brawl of the Week called 3v3 Beachbrawl.

On the latter bullet point, Beachbrawl could be a fun new mode to try out with some buddies:

Time for a Beachbrawl party! What better way to beat the heat than throwing water balloons at beach balls to score goals in a 3v3 Summer throw down? Get 1 point for each beach ball you get past the opposing team’s goal. Most points at the end of 2 minutes wins!

- 3v3
- Queue alone or with a friend!

The free-to-play Legend rotation will have a broad range of characters, too.
