SuperGaming, best known for creating popular titles like MaskGun and Silly Royale, has just announced the launch of its latest game, Indus. It is a brand new F2P battle royale developed in India and designed for PC, consoles and mobiles. Indus is currently still under development, but SuperGaming has given us a glimpse of what’s hidden.
The Battle Royale genre has become quite saturated with each game company coming up with their take on the concept. Indus, however, aims to change that with its own version of a battle royale that focuses more on lore and story. Indus will be based on a futuristic twist on Indian culture and mythology from centuries ago.
Speaking about Indus’ progress, SuperGaming co-founder and CEO Roby John said: “The hope is to tap into our deep knowledge to create a distinct yet relatable world, with weapons and gameplay you’d expect – with a few surprises we plan to reveal later. To be honest, we’re surprised progress we’ve made, given that we wrote this game from the ground up. We had our first playable version of the game at our annual corporate meeting on November 25, 2021, which was very well received.
In the game, players assume the role of a Mythwalker, hired by an international syndicate called COVEN, tasked with discovering the planet Indus, a surprisingly technologically advanced ancient world. The planet is just an accumulation of uncharted islands that are constantly changing and the Indus is said to be a source of limitless cosmium – a life-changing natural wealth that COVEN wants to exploit. The battle royale will be based on Virlok in the ever-changing island Indus.
Expect to see typical combat items like Assault Rifles, Hand Cannons, Snipers and more in-game alongside unique weapons like Ashvini, a special dual-powered sniper rifle. cannon and burst. Indus will launch in 2022 and will be free with in-app purchases.
