Silly Royale brings 8v8 mode in a massive update

Pune-based game studio, SuperGaming announced a new limited-time 8v8 game mode coming to Silly Royale. Dubbed “Squad Island”, the mode sees players take on the roles of a team of survivors and guards, and compete in levels inspired by the popular Netflix series, Squid Game.

Back in December, the studio had introduced the Honeycomb Dalgona and Tug of War levels, as well as a Streamer mode, which functions as a lobby moderation system for content creators, allowing them to choose which viewers to play with. Squad Island mode combines all of these levels into one and drops players onto a deserted island, where they battle it out.

The update includes an all-new map, 16-player lobbies (8 on each side), and two separate voice channels for communication with teammates. Players can also vote on which tiers to play against their opponent, and it has no eliminations, which further encourages the idea of ​​team play.

“On average players spend 48 minutes in Silly Royale and one of the most requested features from the community is the ability to team up with friends,” said Christelle D’cruz, CEO and co-founder of SuperGaming. . “Squad Island is our attempt to do just that, to let you play more of the Silly Royale you love with the people you love.”

Earlier this year, the studio also revealed its upcoming battle royale title, Indus, which is set to launch in late 2022 on mobile, consoles, and Windows PC. As with most modern BRs, the game follows a futuristic theme, although this one has its roots in Indian culture, as seen with the overall architecture.

SuperGaming is also looking to expand into the blockchain space, trying to develop web based titles3. Tegro is a new initiative/marketplace that has been changing the way microtransactions work for over a decade now, allowing users to buy and play with in-game assets, powered by NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

Silly Royale is now available for free download on Android and iOS.
