Battlerite is a PvP team arena brawler still in Early Access on Steam. It's billed as the "spiritual successor" to 2011's Bloodline Champions, which featured free-to-play online PvP arena games up to 10 players (5v5 teams). Battlerite focuses on smaller 2v2 and 3v3 battles (single and multiplayer) that are very fast-paced, lasting 10-15 minutes each.
The game combines aspects of top-down shooters with fighting games. Players perform "battlerites," which boost their strength and give your character powers that you must pick strategically to counter your opponents. There's also a bullet-time mode that allows you to duck deadly attacks in slow motion.
