Developer Pixeleap, an independent game company founded in 2012, is bringing the BattleSouls open beta to Steam this May. The free-to-play multiplayer arena action game will be coming to Steam May 12th. CEO Peter Kjaer says they were inspired by games like Team Fortress 2 and as you can see from the trailer below it is very colorful, vibrant, and action packed.
The unique thing that sets BattleSouls apart from other arena style games is the fact that you can change your character on the FLY! That’s right, you choose three heroes and you change them in the middle of combat as the situation presents itself. This leads to a whole new area of strategy in the game that will keep you on your toes of your armored feet. Maybe you need to throw a fireball instead of hacking away with a sword like an uncouth brute? Switch to the Wizard class in the heat of combat and fire away!
