Hundred-player Battle Royale games are already popular and commonplace, thanks to games such as PUBG and Fortnite. But UK-based developers Automation Games is looking to take the genre to a different level with its upcoming Mavericks: Proving Grounds game.
Mavericks will be 10 times larger, quite literally speaking. The game will engage 1,000 players on a single map to fight it out for the honour of becoming the last man standing. Players in the game will be divided into five-man squads instead of the four-man teams made popular by PUBG. There will also be 400-player game modes which will support solo players and squads.
The players will battle it out on an open-world map with guns and vehicles at their disposal. The official trailer and the beta of the game were launched at the ongoing Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles on June 11 during the PC gaming show segment.
Closed beta registrations for Mavericks is ongoing and will give around 100,000 players access to the beta build. You can register for beta access on their official website: mavericks.gg/game. Early access will reportedly begin later this year
The developing team at Automation had earlier said that the game's graphics will be much better than competitors like PUBG or Fortnite. The Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game is built using CryEngine and SpatialOS technology and it will have real-time lighting and a dynamic weather system.
