Supercell’s Brawl Stars tournament livestream is going on right now – seemingly a prerecorded video being shown off. The first gameplay footage has been revealed. This is a top-down shooter where players are fighting for gem mines, collecting gems and fighting against opponents and working with their teammates in 3-on-3 battles. Collecting gems is the goal, and it’s possible to also destroy opponents’ gems before the end of the match. Different characters, with traditional types such as melee and ranged, will be available.
This seems like an interesting take on the MOBA, as there is a movement joystick for some characters, and an interesting gem control mechanic for how to win. Taking 10 gems seems to be important to getting a win. The game won’t be available quite yet, but a soft launch will take place in Canada before everything else. We’ll have more details as they come in!
