Spellbreak is an online magic battle like Fortnite, but this Battle Royale is fought with spells rather than guns. This means more varied gameplay and tactics as you master different elemental magic and cast powerful spell combinations.

You choose from a range of different player types: Frostborn, Conduit, Pyromancer, Toxicologist, Stoneshaper, or Tempest. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, which you can customise with talents as you grow in power. Because you can hold multiple abilities, you can blend spell combinations to your advantage: fiery tornadoes, electrified gas clouds, and the like.

You also need to explore the map for find tactical advantages with hidden chests that offer one-off runes and equipment. These items give you the ability to fly, teleport, control time, become invisible, and more.
