SuperGaming, India’s prominent game developer, has revealed the latest phase of its global expansion strategy for the Indo-Futuristic battle royale game, Indus, through the launch of the Indus Battle Royale Beta. This release follows a closed beta period for selected iOS users that commenced in December.
The overwhelming response with over 8.5 million pre-registrations underscores the global appeal of the game, emphasizing the incorporation of Indian art, culture, and narratives. Roby John, CEO and co-founder of SuperGaming, expressed gratitude to playtesters, esports professionals, and content creators, acknowledging their role in shaping India’s gaming landscape.
Players can now immerse themselves in the action on Virlok, the map of Indus, experiencing the complete battle royale package with enhanced features tested during community playtests, esports events, and the exclusive iOS closed beta. Accessible through limited Indus Beta Keys, the release introduces a distinctive aspect highlighted in the newly released trailer titled ‘Cosmium Changes Everything.’
The trailer showcases how players can secure victory by capturing Cosmium, an in-game item introduced during the final minutes of a match. SuperGaming’s innovative approach was validated by India’s top esports teams during the recent Indus Esports Invitational.
“Cosmium is central to Indus’ universe, story-telling, and gameplay,” says Roby John. “The trailer is inspired by our players and how they interacted with Cosmium in our playtests and the Indus Esports Invitational to make for a vastly more exciting gameplay experience.”
For those eager to join the Indus Battle Royale Beta, SuperGaming has outlined the process to obtain limited Indus Beta Keys. Participants who sign up on the official Indus Beta key site – indusbeta.com – will secure a place on the waitlist.
To celebrate the beta release, early supporters will receive exclusive cosmetic items, unavailable at the game’s launch. The Android system requirements, powered by SuperGaming’s in-house Indus Engine, make Indus playable on a wide range of devices, catering to a broad audience globally.
“Mobile is the biggest segment of the Indian gaming market and we want to treat players on mobile as first-class citizens rather than an after-thought,” says Sujeet Kumar, Technical Director, SuperGaming. “While Indus runs on Unity, our fully custom-built sandbox shooter tech stack called the Indus Engine allows us to optimize the game even further for a smoother playing experience.”
