Realm Royale is battle royale shooting game, like Fortnite. The game features multiple character classes each with unique abilities. It's a spin off of the the hero-based shooting game Paladins by the same developer.

Similar to other battle royale games, 100 players drop down and pick their desired location on a large map. They must traverse a shrinking safe-zone, collecting equipment such as weapons to fight and kill other players, and aim to be the last remaining player.

A crafting system allows found items to be broken down for materials to make better items or abilities at certain places found on the map. There are four classes, with each class having specific abilities that can be earned by levelling up.

PEGI 12 for non-realistic violence towards human characters. Game includes the use of a variety of weapons ranging from hand guns, rifles, shotgun, grenade launchers, daggers and swords. The weapons do not cause injury or damage associated with their real-world use, but they do affect the number of damage hit points that can be achieved. When a character is hit there will occasionally be a small splattering of blood, after a few hits, the character will transform into a fantasy character, and if it fails to survive undamaged for a set period of time it will disappear in a cloud of feathers.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
