Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale is an online, multiplayer first-person shooter with a Hunger Games-esque component to its arena battles.
In the distant future, an advanced civilization of aliens has taken to abducting the humans of Earth and pitting them against one another in brutal, gladiatorial battles. Humans selected for this bloody sport are transported en masse to the alien-crafted murder domes known as the Islands of Nyne. There, the chosen 100 must battle it out for survival on an ever-shrinking battlefield. Only one person can emerge victorious.
Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale will have a variety of different game modes available at launch including Solo, Double and 5-person matches. Matches are predicted to take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. To boost their chances of survival in the arena, players will be able to collect over 10 unique weapons and attachments and pick up and drive three different types of vehicles. At the end of the match, the winning player will be rewarded with a plethora of armor and item skins to customize the appearance of their character.
Islands of Nyne: Battle Royale is currently holding a sign-up period for its Closed Alpha test in December.
