Lilith Games’ Farlight 84 is Spicing Up the Battle Royale Genre with Crafting, Racing, and Other Wacky Mechanics
When it comes to battle royales, we have a soft spot for games that don’t take themselves too seriously. Sure, while it might be fun to play Call of Duty: Mobile and take the role of a gruff and tough soldier, we sometimes prefer the lighthearted approach of games like Fortnite, which offer colorful graphics, a crew of diverse characters, and weapons that look and work more like crazy toys than actual firearms.
When it comes to wacky shooters and battle royales like the ones we’ve described, there really aren’t many that come to mind. However, this will change very soon as Miracle Games is working alongside the popular Lilith Games (from AFK Arena & Rise of Kingdoms fame) to release the new Farlight 84 soon, which combines the classic battle royale and shooter elements we’ve grown to love with other interesting mechanics such as racing and crafting, all packaged into a very colorful package.
Let’s take a closer look at what this game will offer on release.
What is Farlight 84?
Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, this battle royale game has the survivors of the Zomborg (cyborg zombies) crisis duke it out in 40-player matches. The objective, as usual, is to run around the map with your team, picking up loot and arming yourself in order to defeat the other teams. The victor is the last team standing, and they will receive lots of prizes including the coveted building materials necessary for constructing and expanding bases.
The action and combat in Farlight 84 are fast and intense as players can dash, fly, and maneuver in many different directions. In this sense, it’s important not only to have a good aim in combat but also to learn how to move in order to dodge enemy ambushes or to reposition and flank the opposing teams and win all your battles.
There are many different characters that players can unlock in this game, each with their own sets of skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Similarly, there are also many different weapon types in the game. This variety helps to accommodate many different playstyles other than the regular runnin’ n’ gunnin’.
Weapons and characters aside, players can also use many different vehicles, including huge, multi-legged tanks, to crush the enemies. However, winning is not always as easy as simply picking up the most powerful tanks and calling it a day as vehicle usage is severely limited by an energy system. This is to avoid the unfair advantages that those who hog vehicles will get.
And whenever you’re not out in the field fighting, you can use your hard-earned materials to craft and expand a hideout for you and your friends to hang out and chill in. There will definitely be something for everyone in Farlight 84.
