Another pre-launch playtest event is revving up for the 40-person Battle Royale Rumbleverse starting on June 11 at noon Central Time. Make sure to mark your calendars if you're interested because this one lasts for only 24 hours.
The playtest will be cross-platform friendly, pulling in fans on PC (Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5, 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. A pre-download of the PC or console version before the test goes live will be announced on the official Rumbleverse Twitter page soon, so keep an eye out for updates and instructions from the team. There's also an official Discord server for players wanting to connect with others.

The objective of the cross-platform playtest is to evaluate Rumbleverse's matchmaking capabilities. In a Battle Royale match, all players will now be able to chuck mailboxes and other everyday objects like stop signs to attack others. This improvement is one of the steps for Rumbleverse's "Road to Launch" roadmap. After the June 11 playtest ends, a final one will kick off in July before Rumbleverse launches later this year.
Making some time for some Rumbleverse madness on June 11? Let us know below! You can read the announcement on Rumbleverse's website.
