Supercell’s latest game is finally available on Android… in certain regions. Brawl Stars can now be found on Google Play in Canada, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden as part of its soft launch.
Long in the works, Supercell’s Brawl Stars is a real-time 3 vs 3 arena action game with stylized graphics and a number of different game modes to choose from.
Brawl Stars is a different take on the MOBA genre, doing away with the traditional 5 vs 5 team based matches, standard MOBA map types, and leveling while in game to unlock skills and items. Instead players can level up their brawlers outside of matches and then take their powered up characters into battle.
Doing away with in-match leveling may streamline the game, but Brawl Stars does keep a number of traditional MOBA elements like jungle tiles that allow players set up ambushes and devastating super/ultimate attacks.
At this time the game has 21 different unlockable brawlers and 5 different unlockable game modes. The modes include a battle-royale like mode, a mode that has both teams trying to collect gems, the unique Brawl Ball, and variations on team deathmatch and capture the flag.
While the mobile MOBA genre has become increasingly crowded since Brawl Stars was originally announced a little over a year ago, with the releases of games like Arena of Valor and Paladins Strike, Brawl Stars looks to offer a different experience from other games. The game’s more casual approach and stylized graphics might attract gamers who were previously intimidated by the MOBA genre and its competitive community.
Brawl Stars was previously only available on iOS in Canada up until its soft launch expanded to include mainland Scandinavian nations earlier this year.
Brawl Stars is free and contains in app purchases. Here’s a trailer with a look at the game:
