For anyone who might not have sneaked a peak at the new 8.40 patch notes, here's a quick overview of the new Air Royale mode:
- Air Royale is lifting off as a Duos-only mode.
- Each plane has 3 lives, players will respawn until they lose their planes last life.
- Touching the ground will instantly eliminate players.
- Parking a plane on the ground for more than a few seconds will cause it to explode – stay airborne!
- Hijacking another teams plane will add that plane to your existing number of plane lives (and cost the team who lost the plane a life).
- The storm has a ceiling that gradually lowers during the match. Be careful not to fly too high late in the match!
- Loot chests of five different rarities will fall from the sky, allowing players to upgrade the guns they are carrying as well as boosting their planes weapons for a short time.
- To receive the contents of a Chest, simply fly through it.
- If players receive loot from a Chest containing a weapon they already have thats of the same or worse quality, theyll receive additional ammo.
- Chests with higher quality guns will automatically replace the lower quality weapon thats being carried.
- Floating repair kits can also be found, these heal damaged planes and grant health & shields to players.
On top of the above, there's also a new pilot themed legendary skin in the shop, called Supersonic. And also, further style varients on the skin based on how many of the new challenges you complete.
The rewards for these new challenges offer everything from more XP to those new wraps.
