BattleCore Arena: Ubisoft introduces a new free-to-play platformer

BattleCore Arena: Ubisoft introduces a new free-to-play platformer

Ubisoft's various studios don't have to be boring if we look at all the projects the company is currently managing. With BattleCore Arena, the company has now announced a new game that is described as a “free-to-play platformer.”

If the name BattleCore Arena rings a bell in your mind, then you haven't gone crazy. In fact, an online title by that name was already published in 2017, but not by Ubisoft. Instead, the game came from Cosmic Ray Studio. So we'll be curious to see if legal disputes will arise here.


There is so far little information from the studio about Ubisoft's new creation. At least we have a rough outline of the game principle: you attack each other in the shape of a spherical heart. You can use a wide range of weapons and perks that help you, for example, avoid danger, eliminate opponents and support your friends.

Ubisoft promises multi-level maps, which, in addition to the gravitational forces, should offer a wide range of possibilities. In your spherical form, you can run, roll, and even double jump. This probably explains the term “free-fire platformer”; The developers want to provide a symbiosis between jumping, running and shooting games.

BattleCore Arena is developed by Ubisoft Bordeaux. The studio's most notable game is Assassin's Creed: Mirage, but the mysterious Beyond Good & Evil 2 is also currently in the works.

BattleCore Arena is currently scheduled to release on PC via Steam and Ubisoft Connect. There is no specific date, but a test phase will be held from February 1 to 5, 2024, which you can register for on the official homepage.
