Brawlhalla Founders Pack Available August 1, Includes All Future Fighters

The Big Brawl in Odin’s Hall enters its final phase of beta. Grab the Founders Pack to secure all future fighters as they're released.

Matt Woomer's Avatar Posted by President, Blue Mammoth Games

The Brawlhalla PlayStation beta is entering its final stage, and on August 1st we’re celebrating with the exclusive Founders Pack.

Brawlhalla Founders get all Legends forever! This means all thirty-two current fighters, plus all the fighters we release in the future are automatically unlocked for you. Founders also get exclusive rewards: the sleek new Personal Sentry IV sidekick, the Founder’s avatar, and the Founder’s nameplate. Together these items forever identify you as an honored Brawlhalla Founder. On top of everything else, Founders get instant access to the Brawlhalla beta.

In this update we’re opening up Mallhalla—the in-game store—to spend your earned gold, rank points, and Mammoth Coins. Show off your favorite skins, color schemes, KO fx, and more! Furthermore, the friends list arrives, connecting you in-game with all your Brawlhalla playing PlayStation friends. Finally, we’re introducing our newest legend, Caspian, a gauntlet and katar wielding rogue.

Sure that’s a lot, but we have more huge news. It’s been a long road to get here, but we are very happy to announce that on release, Brawlhalla will feature cross-play! This means that soon, PlayStation players will be able to invite PC friends to join them in Brawlhalla, and vice versa. Imagine brawling in a wild eight-player free-for-all with three friends on your couch, two friends on their PlayStation across town, and two more friends playing on their PCs!

Getting cross-play working has been quite a project. Among other challenges, we’ve had to get gameplay to work exactly the same on both platforms. Brawlhalla uses predictive networking for responsive online play, and for that to work, each player’s inputs have to produce precisely the same results on both platforms—down to the thousandth of an inch—or the differences build up over time and cause havoc. I’m really proud of the job our tech team has done getting the game ready. And now that we’ve solved the technical hurdles, we’re beyond excited to get this feature into your hands.

Brawlhalla on PS4

Some of you are wondering, “What is ‘Brawlhalla’ anyway?” Brawlhalla is a classic, high-energy platform fighter you can play with your friends on a couch or online. Set in Valhalla, a golden hall filled with the greatest warriors from every time and place, Brawlhalla is the Grand Tournament Odin created in a vain attempt to keep his warriors from tearing Asgard apart.

Brawlhalla has it all – couch co-op, vikings, triple jump, cowboys, great online play, ninjas, ranked ladders, pirates, team battles, aliens, fun game-modes, weekly updates, explosions, a worldwide tournament scene, and much more.

We’re really excited for the next phase. A huge thank you to everyone who’s joined the beta so far. You can still sign up at beta.brawlhalla.com to get into the beta queue. Or pick up the Founders Pack for instant access! We’ll see you in Brawlhalla.

Wow, I don’t know how you guys pulled off cross-play with PC but that’s awesome!! Definitely re-ignited my interest in this game! I want to buy a founder’s pack but I don’t see a price listed.

    Hey Trendy,
    We didn’t include the price because of all the different currencies. The plan is to make it a great value by pricing the Founders Pack the same as the All-Legends Pack, even though Founders also get all the bonus stuff – Personal Sentry IV, avatar, nameplate.

    To be clear, cross-play is coming soon, before release, but won’t be enabled next week. Since we are in beta and updating the PlayStation build frequently, we can’t keep the PlayStation and PC build versions in exact synch yet – something required, of course, for cross-play to work. (Otherwise you’d be playing against someone with a different version of the game, and chaos could ensue :)

    If that’s true, then that really is a great deal on the founder’s pack. Thanks for the response Matt!

So you want me to pay to test this game?

    Hey Gamer Boi,
    You’re right – don’t pay just to test :). You can sign up at beta.brawlhalla.com to get in the beta queue. Pick up the Founder’s Pack to if you want the All-Legends and all the Founder’s Rewards (A really great value if I do say so myself), plus you get immediate beta access. We take free-to-play seriously, and we work hard to make everything we do both fair and clear.

    You can get into the beta without paying. Via sign up. Although obviously your chances of getting in are not guaranteed. While buying the founders pack gets you into the beta it also gives you all characters and a few cosmetics. (Characters purchasable with in game coins, whereas the icons are exclusive to this pack) If you were to buy this back you would technically be paying to test it, but with an added bonus. But like I stated earlier you do not need to pay to test this game.
    As it’s in the final stage of beta it might be worth it though. And if you REALLY wanted to try Brawlhalla out without all the sign ups or payment, you could download the game for free on your PC and give it a whirl.

    I signed up. If I get in the beta or not is up to them. I’ll check out the free beta on PC. I know you get a few perks but that still doesn’t justify me paying to test out a game. Thing is more companies are doing this. Charging us to test unfinished games. I know we have to support the devs but this is getting ridiculous.

    You’re paying mostly for the characters. Testing the game or not, it becomes the full game eventually. A game that’s free but without many of the characters who you will get from paying for this. So the only thing you really need to ask yourself is do you want ALL the characters? If yes, buy it. If you only want specific characters then just wait so you can only pay for the ones you want. Being a free to play game, the developers need to get paid somehow.

I signed up for the Brawlhalla beta and received a code, but when I try to redeem it, I just get “The code you entered is inactive.” Any idea why this might happen? Looking forward to playing

    Hey Niro,
    Send an email to support@brawlhalla.com and we’ll get you sorted. Are you entering the code in the PlayStation store?

i really dig this game but i’m in the beta and only way i can get a game going is if i literally get people in a chat and ask them if they wanna get a few matches in. Game is fun and provides a nostalgic vibe of smash brothers. I like the color of it and freedom with selection of weapons. Also didn’t realize that I played this at PSX some months back anyway I hope this game does well.

I bought this same pack, earlier in the year on PC. Will have to buy it again on PS4, or will there be account merging?

I have a question. So if I purchase the founders pack, will I still have those characters/progress when the full game is released ?

A question like I get the code and I registered a couple of weeks ago on the registration page of the beta and I have not yet come anything I hope you see this and that I can solve that doubt :D

Price for Founders Pack states $19.99 USD for me. I’m on the East Coast of the United States.

Are any grab features going to be implemented into the final game? It feels odd that I cannot grab and throw the opponent.

I played this game at GDC 2 years ago. Loved it! I’ll pick up the founders pack Tuesday!

So if you were given access to the BETA, then when the full game is available, the BETA players will receive the FULL game for free? Or is BRAWLHALLA going to be free anyways?

thank you!~
