Cuisine Royale first burst onto the Xbox One scene back in May 2019 via the Game Preview system, delivering a Battle Royale experience with a kitchen theme, giving the chance for us to throw everything including the kitchen sink at our foes. Today though it’s time to see the game break out of Game Preview to launch for real – with a rather tasty looking update helping move things forward.
Available to purchase and download as a fully fledged title, Cuisine Royale on Xbox One takes the tried and tested Battle Royale formula, before mixing things up with a variety of kitchen-styled elements. This will mean that by grabbing a free download from the Xbox Store, you’ll be found attempting to take down all opposition with a colander on your head.
There are standard weapons to utilise too though, and anyone who enjoys a decent Battle Royale experience will no doubt find plenty of pleasure in what Cuisine Royale brings. The latest update which sees Cuisine Royale able to provide the highest quality product includes a new character to enjoy, a new Resurrection system, more modern weapons, an updated version of the Normandy map, and a whole new Leaderboard and League system to partake in. You should also expect to see plenty of other fixes and improvements too, with any copy of the standard Game Preview edition morphing into the full product.
- Massive and intense PvP battles: dozens of players head out from different parts of beautifully crafted and picturesque location, starting only in their basic suits and fighting all their way to the center of a battlefield that is constantly shrinking in size, pressed by the wall of deadly Dark Zone.
- Constantly growing number of very realistically modeled weapons and combat armour. Try to master them all – we do not compromise on physics of ballistics.
- Win by using all your battle skills and traits: rush or be stealth, snipe from the distance, or shoot point-blank, place precise shots from bolt-action or hold fast to heavy machine gun. Backstab, hack, smash in melee with arsenal of cold steel and blunt weapons, or blow those loosers into pieces with grenades and rockets. Fly with the jetpack spraying bullets from the sky or request own orbital supply airdrop – and start a fight over it’s content.
- Also be welcome to use demonic powers! Draw bloody mystic seals or conduct ancient rituals to heal allies, slow down enemies, set numerous traps, summon zombies or even teleport yourself or your enemy somewhere hell out of the place. But first – gather enough souls of sinners to pay for it – a resource you get for killing your enemies.
- Couldn’t find good helmet or bullet proof vest? Different unexpected items can come as a temporary backup. Just explore the map for useful loot – there are plenty of options!
- Stand out from the crowd and have some boost to your skills and battle options! Craft and learn new seals, rituals, suites, masks, gestures, tombstones, camera minions, functional underwear and other useful and cosmetic items. You can also purchase optional Story Book that increases rewards per battle and unlocks additional item recipes.
- Fair play TPV: you can play in first or third person view. In order to mitigate advantage of the latter, every player has a minion with a camera that can uncover the position of a player who is peeking around a corner. So if you see a butterfly or a drone – you should know that you are being watched.
The base game is free-to-play, but for those who find themselves going really deep with what Cuisine Royale provides, then a number of paid options are also available. The cheapest of these is the £16.74 Starter Bundle which includes two unique outfits and a scarf via The Weird West Stories book, a Plague Doctor mask and no less than 1000 Golden Crowns, letting you buy a ton of unique outfits and gestures at the in-game store. Further to that though is the £20.99 Eagle Knight Bundle which includes the same Weird West Stories Book, alongside an Eagle Knight Suit and 500 Golden Crowns.
Moving up in price even more are two further bundles for £41.74 – the Advanced Bundle and the Age of Nagual Bundle. Both of these once more brings that Weird West Stories Book with the former than also including a Highlander Suit, a Cabaret Dancer Suit, the Plague Docter Mask and 2500 Golden Crowns. The latter knocks out the Aztec High Priest suit, Royal Macuahuitl, Golden Sun talisman and 1500 Golden Crowns.
And then we get to the final offering – the Elite Bundle for a cool £83.49. Obviously only really a viable option fo those who really, really, really, like Cuisine Royale, you’ll get access to 5000 Golden Crowns, the Weird West Stories Book, a Royale Boy Suit and boxer shorts, the Highlander Suit, the Cabaret Dancer Suit and the Plague Doctor Mask. Basically anything and everything you can think of.
