A number of big changes have now arrived in Apple Arcade’s kid-friendly battle royale title, Butter Royale. First launched at the end of January, this one sees you engaging in large-scale food fights against up to 31 other players. As the match progresses, the map will become flooded with butter, forcing players into smaller, and therefore more action-packed, areas.
First up, a fresh tutorial has been added to ease new players into the experience. You’ll now get an extensive lesson on the ins and outs of Butter Royale, and there’s the option to get a refresher at any time from within the settings menu.
A new “tap-to-shoot” option has been added to make the game’s combat a little more accessible. Basically, this allows you to lock onto and fire at the closest target by holding then tapping the right joystick. Your character’s turning speed has also been given a small boost to make movement more fluid and fun.
Next time you log on, you’ll find neat festive skins, ‘melees’, trails, and flags inspired by Lunar New Year. These are available as part of the current season. Characters Raspberry and Ken Clucky have also received a makeover, turning them into Ninjaberry and Ken Lucky respectively. Some of the new melees on offer include Tarty Time, Humpty Dumpling, and Wok ‘n’ Roll.
Some smaller changes include the addition of visual effects whenever you pick up items during a match, as well as a boost to the number of pickups found around the island.
The team over at Mighty Bear Games has listened to player feedback and opted to remove daily limits on rewards, which I’m sure will come as a huge relief to those playing Butter Royale the most. Other balancing tweaks include changes to the amount of XP required to level up and the overall cost of prizes.
If you’re wondering where you can find Butter Royale, it’s available exclusively on Apple Arcade. The subscription service will set you back around a fiver a month.
