Michonne, Rick Grimes, and Daryl Dixon from AMC‘s The Walking Dead are now available in Brawlhalla as Epic Crossovers. The in-game event that kicks off today through October 28 features Walker Attack, a new game mode where players and their friends have to fight off endless waves of walkers for as long as they can. It also features a new map depicting the survivors’ prison from seasons 3 and 4 of The Walking Dead, a new “Days Gone Bye” podium, and a new “Walker’s Grasp” KO effect.
Brawlhalla is a free-to-play2Dfighting game developed by Blue Mammoth Games for Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS, with full cross-play across all platforms. The game was shown at PAX East in April 2014, and went into alpha later that month. An open beta became available in November 2015, followed by the game’s release in October 2017. As of October 2020, the game features 51 playable characters called “Legends”, each with their own unique stats, loadout, and available cosmetic skins.
In most of Brawlhalla’s game modes, the goal is to knock one’s opponent off the stage, comparable to Super Smash Bros. This can be done by damaging them repeatedly. Damage can be seen on the color display around the opponent’s character icon, which goes from white to red to black as the player continues to get hit. The closer the color is to red, the farther the player will be knocked back, until they eventually get knocked out. Getting knocked off the stage will result in the player losing a life. Either the last player standing (the one who still has at least one life) or the player with the most points wins the match.
The game supports both local and onlineplay. Competitive players can compete 1-on-1 to climb through the rankings. They can also find a partner to play against other duos to increase their collaborative rank. Brawlhalla also has several casual modes: Free-For-All, 1v1 Strikeout, Experimental 1v1, and a different featured mode every week. Free-For-All is a chaotic mode where 4 players knock each other out to gain points. In 1v1 Strikeout, players pick 3 characters which they play for 1 stock each.
