Indus Battle Royale is a mobile game currently in closed beta, developed and published by the Indian company SuperGaming. It is an upcoming battle royale game set in a unique, "Indo-futuristic" world. The game is getting closer to an official release and we just got a look at a gamechanging new feature - the Grudge System which seeks to spice up gameplay. The new feature essentially allows you to avenge any losses that you suffer by matching against your opponents for a second round.

What's The Grudge System in Indus?

The Grudge System is available when you are defeated by another player during a match. At the end of the match, you have the choice to hold a Grudge against your rival. If you accept it, then you hold a Grudge against them. This gameplay feature ensures that the two players are matched preferentially in future matches.

In the next match, you receive rewards if you successfully eliminate the player who defeated you previously. These rewards could include cosmetics and other in-game elements.

To celebrate the Indus Beta, players will net one-of-a-kind exclusive cosmetic items to cement their status as being the game’s early supporters. These will not be available at launch.

Indus was conceptualized in 2020 and a team was put together with talent across India joining the team. The team has grown and it features around 150 people. An internally playable version of the game was available on 25th November 2021. The game will be free-to-play and the team is yet to decide on how it will be monetized. It is likely that the game will include purchasable cosmetics and/or a battle pass.

The first trailer for the "indo-futuristic" battle royale Indus made its debut on India's Independence Day (15th August) back in 2022 and the game is inching closer to the official launch.

The game will be playable in a first-person perspective (FPP) but a third-person perspective is also being planned for the future. When it comes to the lore of the game, the world of Indus is a mystery featuring floating islands. Indus was home to a race called the Yaksha, which invented jet engines and nuclear power.

The Yaksha used Cosmium to tap into the extra-dimensional energy to fulfill their needs and it became the first interstellar civilization to do so. But the entire race was wiped out from the pages of history. This is when the game takes place as players uncover the secrets of the lost civilization.
