Grand Battle Royale is a singleplayer mode with an option to team up in two-player Platoons. No random allies. No arty. Just you and your battle-hardened companions against the world.
You start with a limited ammo load and no Premium ammo whatsoever. “But how do I resupply?” you ask. Keep an eye out for Standard and Premium ammo stashed all across the map. Collect, recharge, and keep rolling!
There are no in-Garage modification for tanks. We disabled literally everything but shells. It all changes though as you make your way around the map. Search for special power-ups as you roll, and discover new ways to wreak havoc using them.
Available to you from the get-go are four Tier IX LTs. Choose any and roll out! As you battle, you can swap it for a Tier X light, medium or heavy tank. To do it, enter a marked zone on the map and hold there for 10 seconds. There’s no way of knowing what you’re getting until reach the marked zone. Decide whether to switch not once you see what’s coming, but remember: if you do, you start with the default ammo load. As for the power-ups you’ve collected so far, they stay with you.
Your view range in Grand Battle Royale is somewhat limited. You see well in the 120° range in front of the vehicle turret. Outside this range, your view range gets four times worse.
Although the map is 3x3 km, the active battle zone gets smaller and smaller as the game continues. There’s no time to look around and take in the sights—act fast or you’ll be left facing an enemy on a shrinking piece of land.
No matter how close your enemy might be, their health bar and icons won’t show unless you aim right at them. Even if you spotted them a while ago. Keep it in mind when you go hunting!
