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

Jarrett R.K. H1Z1 did it... not PUBG
Grunderssen Bjerknes (4 months ago)
No Harry. Multiplayer last man standing is literally just multiplayer with no respawns. I grew up playing those games all the time. But does that (newer titles) make; any World of titles, Counter-strike, and pretty mutch every tactical FPS multiplayer match a "battle royale"  game?

Shut up, IGN.

I wish there was a single player type game like this. Would be perfect.
Aussie Roberts (4 months ago)
So FFA mode has now become Battle Royale? No
Mister Bates (4 months ago)
If you want to play, search me on Steam: "Misterbates the Kraken"
Colonel Boris (4 months ago)
I'm not gonna lie, I like how this game isn't copying any other battle royal games
ilv1 (4 months ago)
Battle royale? No. This is just a deathmatch. Battle Royale is 100 people.
Alpharius Omegon (4 months ago)
"Maelstrom is the Weirdest Battle Royale Game I've Ever Played" hu hu hu and Call of Duty is the weirdest open world role playing game I ever played.
Madd8K (5 months ago)
So that was a bot game now show us the real game °°

this looks pretty fun.
Jim Johnson (5 months ago)

Anthony Lim (5 months ago)
The Assbringer is a cool ship
Balthizar22 (5 months ago)
Those aren't players, those are the AI controlled bot ships. Shouldn't lie about stuff like that. :P

What was that click bait monster when i clicked...
Nitsujin Serinai (5 months ago)
Reminds me of the WC3 Mod: "Battleships"
Fernando Valles (5 months ago)
there's no way the name ash bringer is copy righted
Myrrah (5 months ago)
battle royale is not even new.... Like 20 years ago games have FFA, which is basically battle royale but nobody bat an eye... hmm.....hmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmhmh
Noah Gilgallon (5 months ago)
Watched that entire video just to learn at the end that it’s not gonna be on console...... great
Nicolas Silva (5 months ago)
to me, this looks way better than sea of thieves
The Trap Dough (5 months ago)
Sony is having stuff like God of War while Microsoft....well Microsoft...
Saurabh Rana (5 months ago)
Has a lot of potential to make it real big. 🙌
idoq pobi (5 months ago)
So I guess everything is Dark Souls and Battle Royale
TheOrisya (5 months ago)
so twisted metal is a battle royal game no one giving credits
Numb Knot (4 months ago)
It's not.
Oli Thurlbourn (5 months ago)
Would it be call a free for all if its only 16 people?
Scojo (4 months ago)
It's BR since the play area shrinks and you win by being the last alive. Also, there's duos as well.
Kikoo Kikaboo (5 months ago)
FFA you generally respawn and go back in the fight
Prxzm (5 months ago)
where can i find this game?
Kikoo Kikaboo (5 months ago)
englich (5 months ago)
cant stop playing this game its soo much fun really worth to buy
Imqactt (5 months ago)
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 (5 months ago)
looks like a lot of fun
Michel Romero (5 months ago)
In hope this comes to consoles
Phillip H. Dunwich (5 months 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 (5 months ago)
Played it for a few hours last night - Great fun. Will definitely be going back to it!
PromNightFetus (5 months 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 (5 months ago)

eod21 (5 months ago)
Another battle royale game cause we ran out ideas. I admit I do enjoy this one though.
Tomny Zamarron (5 months ago)
To bad is only on pc when are they going understand the average person is not going spent allot money on pc just to play games the game look fun do i give developers props for that
Jesse Rodrigues (5 months ago)
Can someone confirm if this is basically a new modern Battleships mode from WC3?
MVP MVP (5 months ago)

Bryn Feneley (5 months ago)

Doran Martell (5 months ago)
Warhammer Fantasy inspired ships.
Brian Beck (5 months ago)

Martin King (5 months ago)
Am I the only one that clicked because I wanted to see a fight against the monster in the thumbnail? Lol
Deus ex Capsicum (5 months ago)
Finally a battle royale game that looks interesting enought for me to jump in the bandwagon
Joe1up (5 months ago)
That looks awesome
IMA Bull (5 months ago)
so many fun games come out of pc.
Sam the Stuntman (5 months ago)
I like it
Frank Gallaxx (5 months ago)
can we stop developing battle royale games and start making actually fun and creative games?
DeItoy (5 months 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 months ago)
This looks better than Fortnite, by alot
Micah Vincent (5 months 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 months ago)
Do devs even make Co-op PvE games anymore?
Ethan Ruigrok (4 months ago)
*A Way Out*
Jack Carver (5 months ago)
Looks super fun! Hope they polish up the UI/UX though.
Ben Phillis (5 months ago)
Was going to buy it until he said it's in Early Access...
saelin00 (5 months ago)

Rau Usu (5 months ago)
Hopefully they drop it on PS4 in the future

Eric Wehrli (5 months ago)

Zevac (5 months ago)
Sea of thieves still has better water lmao
warlock1080 (5 months ago)
Ooh, this looks cool
Luke Obie1 (5 months ago)
To many pop up ads.
XMegaJuni (5 months ago)

Enzur (5 months ago)
It's like Hollywood making movies out of books. No one has original ideas anymore.
J Dawg (5 months ago)

Persona Joker (5 months ago)
Has everyone forgot about the real OG battle royal game Agari.o like damn that was the real deal back then
TheIchKing (5 months ago)
Looks interesting, but the fact that it's a battle royal game turns me off.
Handi Dwi (5 months ago)
It's still beta right?
Daniel Quintero (5 months ago)
Seems pretty interesting
Alex Ramos (5 months ago)
You mean a deathmatch? It’s not a BR.
DIsabledgamer jh (5 months ago)
And there were 60 people

•Last man standing •No respawns •Shrinking play space •Full loot on death

last ship sailing
Cynically Serious (5 months 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.
Cynically Serious (4 months ago)
rick johnson My point was that this game is hot garbage. It was also me doubting them actually being people and more likely bot controlled.
rick johnson (5 months ago)
Cynically Serious lol so your only point is that the players are bad
Mealstorm = World of warcraft Copy

Luca Peter (5 months ago)
Waiting for skull and bones but this looks cool too.
Giantgii (5 months ago)
Sea of Thieves should take this example
Snub Nubler (5 months 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 (5 months 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 (5 months 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
Saiyan Angel (5 months ago)
Snub Nubler It a joke
