Realm Royale Reforged is a free-to-play title, meaning that it's free to download on your platform of choice. This is because the game is currently in open beta as Hi-Rez claims the game is not yet fully finished. The game originally launched in early access back in 2018, but has now been re-released in open beta in August 2022.


That doesn't mean everything in Realm Royale Reforged is free, however. While there is currently no battle pass system available in the game, there are still cosmetics and microtransactions for players to buy. Some items cost real-world currency, while others can be bought for in-game currency.

With Realm Royale Reforged being in Open Beta, there is potential for the game to start charging players once it is released. However, Hi-Rez states on the Realm Royale Reforged Steam page that it has no intention to start charging for the game. We will update this article if that changes.
