ring of elysiumRing of Elysium was released on September 19, 2018 by Tencent Games who also developed the game. Ring of Elysium is a massive multiplayer battle royale game.

Tencent, for those who are unaware, is a huge media conglomerate out of China. Tencent publish games, television shows, moves and more.

A game update on November 8, 2018 changed the game dynamics that caught some by surprise and most did not like the paywall in some parts of the game.

Ring of Elysium is a battle royale style game. The inevitable comparisons with PlayerUnknown Battleground is seen with many comments about this game,

The game’s story is that people are trapped in a violent snowstorm. The only way out is by a rescue flight which can only save 4 people. Survivors must stay ahead of the storm while eliminating any competition for rescue.

The game world is divided into several regions. The snowstorm will transform the regions into frozen hell and hypothermia is a real threat.

The gameplay is more or less a fps with a lot of different features. Players can find a range of winter items from snowboards to 4-wheel drive vehicles. Caution though as a snowboard is an easy target for a long gun. The hang glider is fast but risky.

The artwork in the game is excellent with many ice sculptures to give the game some interesting scenery.

Tencent has to get some credit for such a hard nosed story. Survival from disaster is a real dog eat dog kind of game. Makes it a real social statement about some of disasters that have really happened.

This game unfortunately needs an anti cheat system as hackers have already ruined the game.
