An extensive list of Realm Royale Reforged patch notes have landed following the game's huge overhaul. Realm Royale was released way back in 2018 as a battle royale competitor to Fortnite. After a few years with a declining fanbase, Hi-Rez has decided to bring the game back in a big way. Plenty has changed with many of the game's mechanics being stripped back to how they were in the beginning. So, here is everything you need to know about the Realm Royale Reforged patch notes for August 2022.

Taking things back to basics, the Runes system has been replaced with a traditional Armour system. There are now four different pieces of armour for players to equip, each of which grants a different gameplay bonus:

  • Helm: Increased Cooldown reduction
  • Breastplate: Additional Armor P5/Health P5
  • Gauntlets: Increased Reload and Weapon Swap speed
  • Greaves: Increased Movement speed and Mount speed

Realm Royale Reforged Patch Notes: Class Locking

Class weapons and abilities are now locked behind each class type. In addition, they are now separated into Movement and Combat abilities.

Elsewhere, Hi-Rez has made changes to the way that Chests work. Class Chests are new and can be found throughout the Realm. They hold class-specific weapons and abilities and have a small chance to spawn Epic gear.

There have also been changes to the Circle zone size. A Circle Zone now appears as soon as you start a game of Realm Royale, which forces players together more quickly. In addition, players can now only queue for Solos and Trios. Duos and Squads have been removed from the game, but may be added back in later.

Here are the other minor changes that have arrived in the Realm Royale Reforged August update:

  • The Talent system has been removed
  • Legendary weapons may only be forged, taken from goblins, or found in Zeppelin Chests
  • Many Abilities have been re-tuned and given additional effects
