Vainglory, for iOS and Android, gets its first new game mode since the title officially launched in July 2015, dubbed Battle Royale, is now live. Battle Royale matches last about 7-10 minutes, compared to Vainglory’s typical 20-minute match, so it’s perfect for players looking for a quick fix or for those new to real-time competitive games. In this full-fledged game mode, players will be able to public queue just as they would for ranked or casual matches, but Battle Royale will randomly assign them one hero from Vainglory’s entire roster, giving players experience with heroes they may not even own yet. Once they leave base, there’s no turning back, and jungle barriers thrust players into fast, epic lane-only battles. The official Vainglory Collegiate StarLeague will take place in May. Registration runs from May 7-21 at www.cstarleague.com
