Gamescom 2020: Despite Geoff's Misspeak, Spellbreakers Will Actually Launch September 3rd
Disappointing more than a few fans, Geoff Keighley misspoke on today's Opening Night Live presentation for Gamescom. Having announced prior to the airing of the launch trailer for Spellbreak that the game would be coming out tonight (along with other titles that randomly released as the show ran), the trailer concluded with the tidbit that the mage battling game would actually release on September 3rd.
Proletariat.inc pushed the announcement on Twitter with the declaration that the release would be simultaneous on PC, PS4, XBox, and Switch. In addition, the game will, as previously announced, feature cross-play, cross-save, cross-progression, and cross-party functionality on all platforms. PC fans should note though that the game will be an Epic Games Store exclusive.
Those of you looking to get a jump on some cosmetics or cash shop currency for the free-to-play title can still purchase Founder's Packs ranging from $49.99 to $119.99 in cost. These may not be available much longer or may be changed in some way as launch nears since alpha and closed beta testing inclusion was a rather large part of the bundles, but this is just a guess on my side, not something Spellbreak has actually announced. Maybe keep an eye on the packs and announcements if you're interested seeing as you really only have a few days to wait.
