For those confused about what makes Maelstrom a Battle Royale game: •Last man standing •No respawns •Shrinking play space •Full loot on death

IGN nothing like ign's classic "it's x meets y" or mislabelling a games' genre for views/out of stupidity

Guess Call of Duty, Battlefield, Counter Strike, etc are all Battle Royale games. Nice try, much clickbait

Picked up this game the other day and am honestly having a lot of fun with it. Really fun and polished for an early access game and cheap too!
Beast n' Brushes (4 days ago)
looks like a lot of fun
Michel Romero (4 days ago)
In hope this comes to consoles
Phillip H. Dunwich (4 days ago)
Finally, innovation and original ideas make their way to the battle royal genre. I was worried that battle royal would grow stagnant with time (not much time with how saturated it is) but this gives me hope.
Jay Dee (4 days ago)
Played it for a few hours last night - Great fun. Will definitely be going back to it!
PromNightFetus (4 days ago)
See IGN? You can make entertaining content. If only you could always be passionate and have fun with a game for first impressions such as this one.
Anthony Giagiari (4 days ago)

Frank Gallaxx (5 days ago)
can we stop developing battle royale games and start making actually fun and creative games?
DeItoy (5 days ago)
can you stop bitching and understand just because a game is a "battle royale" it isn't automatically boring. this game is doesn't feel like your typical br game with shooters, they literally made it a naval ship game. that is creative.
Sandhiren Pillay (5 days ago)
This looks better than Fortnite, by alot
Micah Vincent (5 days ago)
Why call it "battle royale" when free for all would suffice? Or does the does the shrinking map automatically make a game a battle royale?
ZedoBlack (5 days ago)
Do devs even make Co-op PvE games anymore?
Jack Carver (5 days ago)
Looks super fun! Hope they polish up the UI/UX though.
Ben Phillis (5 days ago)
Was going to buy it until he said it's in Early Access...

TheIchKing (5 days ago)
Looks interesting, but the fact that it's a battle royal game turns me off.
Handi Dwi (5 days ago)
It's still beta right?
Daniel Quintero (5 days ago)

Alex Ramos (5 days ago)

Cynically Serious (5 days ago)
i think it's funny that at least half of the "Players" this shmuck is fighting don't really fight and just spin slowly in a circle without firing. See the very last guy if you don't feel like watching this crapola game. But hey, why worry about making a decent game when I can make the equivalent phone game and throw a bunch of bars and gauges for you to watch instead of the game.
rick johnson (5 days ago)
Cynically Serious lol so your only point is that the players are bad

Luca Peter (5 days ago)
Waiting for skull and bones but this looks cool too.
Giantgii (5 days ago)
Sea of Thieves should take this example
Snub Nubler (1 day ago)
I mean it is, the only lacking feature Sot is missing is a hunger and water meter, other than that its just sandbox pvp with high stakes loot drops, like in rust or ark or any other survival game they just replaced bases with boats and made it so you didn't have to craft them.
Trinkes Lato (2 days ago)
Sea of thieves is a survival game? EL OH EL
Snub Nubler it is half a joke, adding battle Royal on sea of Thieves is not the best idea but adding anything is preferable than nothing, SoT as it is just has no content, nothing
Snub Nubler (4 days ago)
my bad lol internet is just so full of people crying for every game to have a battle royal its hard to tell sarcasm from personal opinion
