Rediscovering the Essence: BattleBit Remastered
BattleBit Remastered intrigued me initially, despite its low-poly, almost Roblox-like character models. The game’s sudden popularity on the Steam charts made me curious enough to give it a chance. Little did I know that overlooking BattleBit based solely on aesthetics would mean missing out on a remarkable revival of the FPS genre.
Having spent countless hours playing the Battlefield series, particularly Battlefield 2, I can confidently say that BattleBit Remastered brings back the same exhilarating experience. It falls into the “shooter with a strategy meta-layer” category, and after playing it for about a week, I understand why it’s currently dominating the Steam charts.
A Familiar Territory
One of the strengths of BattleBit Remastered lies in its simplicity, which makes it feel like home for Battlefield players. Jumping into massive matches with up to 127 players on each side, choosing a class like Assault, Recon, Engineer, Medic, or Support, and diving into the action becomes second nature. Capture control points, deplete the enemy’s tickets before yours run out – it’s all about the thrill of familiar gameplay with polished shooting mechanics. BattleBit Remastered encourages players to be vigilant, as shots can come from hundreds of meters away. Snipers need to account for bullet drop, adding an element of strategic thinking. I quickly found my favorite guns and enjoyed unlocking various attachments for them.
BattleBit Remastered introduces interesting changes to certain aspects of gameplay. Squad spawning, establishing rally points, and capturing points on the map are all present. However, the absence of parachutes is a notable difference. Instead, infantry enters and exits helicopters using rappel ropes, adding tension to air attacks. Transport helicopters can no longer simply drop off a squad; they must stall for a moment, heightening the intensity of such encounters.
One of the major highlights of BattleBit Remastered is its destructible environments. Tank shells and RPGs can tear buildings and cover to shreds. Taking out an enemy emplacement can be as simple as blasting through its walls. However, this also applies to the player’s team. Claiming a building with a gaping hole in its defenses exposes your team to increased visibility. The game strikes a delicate balance, creating intense back-and-forth battles during the process of capturing and recapturing points. It is not uncommon to witness grenade exchanges and infantry charges at intersections until one side gains the upper hand.
I believe there is tremendous potential for strategic coordination to play a significant role in determining the outcome of battles. While I have mostly been a lone wolf, I noticed the impact of a well-coordinated squad when compared to individual efforts. Developers SgtOkiDoki, Vilaskis, and TheLiquidHorse have made it easy to stick with your squad across different maps, facilitating partying up and utilizing voice chat. It’s worth mentioning that the game’s moderation system swiftly handles cheating and hate speech, maintaining a respectful and enjoyable experience.
A Seamless Experience
Simplicity is the game’s greatest strength. From its gameplay mechanics to its overall design, BattleBit Remastered excels in delivering a sleek and seamless experience. While there are cosmetic “supporter packs” available, the absence of a battle pass and daily objectives ensures that the game relies solely on the individual’s skill and progression. Mastery of individual weapons leads to unlocking better attachments, and a prestige system adds an additional layer of motivation for those seeking to climb the ranks.
It’s intriguing to find that a game without coercive engagement mechanisms manages to captivate players far better than those that heavily rely on them. When launching BattleBit Remastered, there are no reminders of daily tasks or content completion pressure. I’m not obligated to engage with specific aspects of the game or participate in roles I have no interest in. Rather, for a mere $15 investment, I receive a solid shooter with an expansive player count. I can jump in, play a few games, and log off whenever I choose.
Beyond being a superior alternative to Battlefield, BattleBit serves as a more relaxed multiplayer shooter compared to many others on the market. I can join a random squad, immerse myself in overblown anime music through headsets, and enjoy the game’s vibrant community. With effective moderation, instances of cheating and hate speech promptly dealt with, BattleBit Remastered provides the FPS experience I crave at this moment. And judging by its place on the Steam charts, it seems many others share this sentiment.
