The game is set in the future and the arena battles are a sport known as Crown Rush. 100 players are dropped onto the slowly shrinking map and must eliminate each other by shooting. To win you must hold the crown in the final sector for 45 seconds.
You can find and upgrade weapons and abilities that let you transform into a giant ball that can bounce around or make them invisible. When defeated the player becomes an "Echo", that can inform other players about the location of enemies. When an enemy is killed, you can use the revive point they drop to bring back a fallen teammates.
Players progress through the tiers system, unlocked by the battle pass. Each tier requires 200 experience points from completing daily and weekly challenges, performing well in games. Points are also earned from interacting with Twitch streamers.
New weapons and characters are added over time. Season 2 (The Aftermath), for example, introduces a new Atrax weapon which bursts sticky time-detonated mines, a new Platform hack that aids access to new locations and Crown Rush Duo and Floor is Lava modes.
Cross-Platform: You will be able to play between PC, PlayStation and Xbox. Although this feature isn't available in the current beta version.
