The Battle Royale genre has been one that has seen any number of contenders emerge in recent years, though GRIT's wild west setting is something worth your boots for. In GRIT it's all about gunslingin' in the old west, with mechanics and a look and feel that falls on the more over-the-top and fast-paced side of the BR spectrum.
And it leans into the setting in very cool ways. Got eliminated? Well a high-noon style 1-v-1 duel can get you back into the action. Weapons and pick-ups provide perks modeled after poker hands offering up bonuses for different styles of play. You'll also have your trusty steed (natch) and can hop on a steam train to get around.
Wild West Royale - Saddle a trusty horse and venture across the frontier. Battle 99 other cowboys in solo, duo, and squad gunfights.
Perk System - Look for weapons that make all-in poker hands to gain special perks. Gather specific hands to craft different styles of play. There's advantages and tradeoffs to be made depending on the cards you're collecting - will you go all-in on gunslinging, focus on patching up your wounds after each skirmish, or find some other winning combination?
Ride Through the West - Bond with your horse, riding and controlling your trusty steed with multiple speeds. Feeling lazy? Use the equine beast o' burden as extra inventory. Horses are a great way to stay mobile, escape the all consuming calamity storm, and fire on-the-go. If you're feeling daring and have the gumption, steal your foe's horse and ride like the wind.
Tools o' the Trade - Over 20 weapons and a whole host of cowboy equipment are there to help you and yours to the top of the gunslinger rankings. Weapons are projectile-based, so you’ll need to be a crack shot, lead targets, and account for gravity.
All Aboard - Steal loot and a seat on the last train outta town. Take charge and use the locomotive to stay inside the battle royale ring.
