Top 5 Games Like Spellbreak You Can Play Anywhere Right Now

With Spellbreak officially closing down in early 2023, we've listed a few similar games you can play that still keep the magic alive.
Top 5 Games Like Spellbreak You Can Play Anywhere Right Now
Spellbreak was a spectacular magic-based battle royale game developed by Proletariat Inc. that attracted millions of players thanks to its fresh take on an otherwise saturated genre. However, Spellbreak quickly met its demise amid complaints of lag, bots, and slow content rollouts destroying the game. The developers later spelled out a less than savory future for the game, shutting down its servers in early 2023.

While it's saddening to see such wasted potential from a title that was (at one stage) highly regarded, some fans may wish to relish the memories they once had in Spellbreak. As a result, we've done our best to compile a list of alternative games that are similar to Spellbreak, which you can play anywhere right now.

Top 5 Games Like Spellbreak To Play Right Now

The game titles indicated below are ranked in no particular order. Also, it's worth noting that this list of the top five most similar games to Spellbreak reflects the author's opinions.

Realm Royale

Realm Royale is a free third-person shooter BR from Hi-Rez Studios. It’s also a spin-off version of Paladins, another game under the publishers. The game features fantasy-esque characters and mechanics similar to Spellbreak. 

You can choose four classes in Realm Royale: Mage, Warrior, Assassin, and Hunter, and each class provides different specialties. For example, selecting the Mage class allows you to soar the skies, while the Warrior specialty helps you jump higher with the help of a shield potion.

The game drops you into an arena with one-hundred other people, where you land across the map and find weaponry or equipment. You can create different items like Ice Staff or Throwing Axe at Forges scattered across the map. In addition, some rarities further the effectiveness of items. You can also ride Mounts to venture through the lands much more comfortably. But, like all BRs, the goal is to be the last alive.

Realm Royale is still in beta, but it’s available on Steam, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, there haven’t been many developer updates, but Realm Royale does the job if you’re in a pinch to quench your urge to play Spellbreak.

FOG

Published by Playneta Limited, FOG stands out as an amalgam between BR and MOBA titles; it’s free-to-play too. Notably, FOG is only available on Android and iOS, but it takes its gameplay to an isometric view for a mobile game. Like Spellbreak, you can customize your gameplay by equipping items or characters with unique skills.

There are many different classes to choose from upon entering matches. However, these are not all unlocked upon playing, and you'll need to collect these classes as you play.

Once in-game, you can teleport into the map and wander as a ghost until you choose to come out in your natural form; you can’t attack in this form as it merely helps you position quickly.

FOG receives regular updates, so there’s no need to worry about a lack of content. Considering it’s a mobile game, you can play FOG practically anywhere. And like Spellbreak, you can loot and shoot as many spells as you want while defeating your enemies.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt

Developed and published by Sharkmob AB, Bloodhunt is a spectacular free-to-play game focusing on vampires and their supernatural powers. It may be far from Spellbreak’s entire niche, but it does feature pretty close gameplay mechanics. Set in Prague consumed by a ruthless war between vampire factions, Bloodhunt features archetypes and clans resembling classes.

The game focuses entirely on vampires and gun battles. As mentioned, these archetypes provide supernatural abilities aiding you in combat. With many buildings spanning high and low across Prague’s city center, you’ll need to use the verticality to your advantage.

It’s extremely fast-paced, similar to Spellbreak, so you’ll need to put on your tracking goggles to keep up. The goal, like any BR, is to be the last one standing; well, in this case, the final vampire not staked in the heart.

Bloodhunt is available on Steam and Playstation 5. Like Spellbreak, Bloodhunt will get you moving like never before and firing your abilities at enemies in a flurry. And what are supernatural powers except for another name for vampire magic?

Wild Arena Survivors

Published and developed by Ubisoft, Wild Arena Survivors is the least like Spellbreak compared to its magical gameplay. But it does resemble the cartoonish and seemingly fun visuals, and sound design Spellbreak entails. Unfortunately, the game’s currently only available on Android due to its soft-launching, but it’ll most likely make its way to iOS on global release.

In Wild Arena Survivors, you must choose between three characters with different abilities and allocated weapons; you can only use the latter with the character you play. Don’t worry, though. You can collect characters by playing the game, so Wild Arena Survivors rarely gets boring. These characters also have upgradable perks, which boost your statistical advantage against others in the arena.

After picking your character, the game sets you on an island where you’ll fight thirty-nine other people. There are mounts you can summon to roam the map, and you can loot weapons and add-ons. You can also farm various resources to upgrade your items and abilities.

Like FOG, Wild Arena Survivors takes the gameplay to an isometric perspective. But comparingly similar to Spellbreak, you’ll get to immerse yourself in its cartoonish environment while playing goofy characters. 

Wizard of Legend

Developed and published by Contingent99, Wizard of Legend is the closest to Spellbreak’s magical gameplay. However, it takes a twist in this list as it’s not a BR; instead, Wizard of Legend is a roguelike dungeon crawler.

Wizard of Legend is a fast-paced game emphasizing dynamic magical combat. You’ll need to be light-footed and use your quick movement and even faster use of spells to allow you to chain magic together and unleash devastating combinations against your enemies. Like Spellbreak, you can battle through each challenge and acquire new spells and relics to bolster your combat ability.

If you’re specifically looking for the magic Spellbreak has in it, Wizard of Legend can fill that void. The game’s a no-nonsense, action-packed take on wizardry, and it’s a great 2D pixel game. With so many dungeons to conquer through quick-casted spells and arcane-filled combinations, Wizard of Legend satiates the craving for magic and sorcery.

Wizard of Legend is available on Steam, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Hopefully, these games will help you transition from sorrow after Spellbreak closes in early 2023. With these games, maybe at least you can experience the same mechanics, stories, or magic Spellbreak had installed but now leaves behind.
