Supercell is back once more with a new action title called Squad Busters. It features characters from familiar games you may recognize, such as Clash of Clans, Hay Day, and Brawl Stars. At the moment, the closed beta is only available in Canada from February 6 to 16 so that gamers can provide feedback on gameplay.
For those of you in Canada during this time, you can register to try the game on the Supercell page. Alternatively, you can use a VPN from elsewhere in the world while connecting to Canada to see if you can get in on the beta action. For now, here are some details of the Squad Busters battle arena game for Android.
What is Squad Busters all about?
Squad Busters is a fun mobile game where you collect different characters with orbs and other resources you obtain to send into battle. During each match, you start with one character, unlocking more and joining them to your squad to become stronger. Other players will do the same while avoiding the bots in the area.
If you’re eliminated, or Busted, you’ll leave to fight in a different match. The player left standing or with the most orbs at the end of the round wins. You’ll also get all your opponent’s orbs if you manage to eliminate them. The whole point is adding as many characters to your squad while collecting as many orbs as possible.
Can you download Squad Busters?
At the moment, Squad Busters is in closed beta in Canada for Android gamers. There are limited game test seats available, so it may already be too late to try and get in. However, that shouldn’t stop you from trying to see if there’s still an available spot left. We’re hoping Supercell will have more beta tests in other countries soon.
How do you play Squad Busters?
From what we’ve seen so far, there’s already quite a bit happening in Squad Busters. You’ll have plenty of orbs and other resources to collect and use for what looks like a tier-based system. Here are some of the other features.
Familiar Supercell characters
As mentioned, Squad Busters has a full roster from other Supercell games. To unlock them, you’ll need to obtain orbs of a specific amount, making them available for your brawl arena matches. For the beta, only a few of the characters are available for testing, and all your stats will reset when the game goes live.
Two available maps
At the moment, the two available maps are Green and Desert. They are relatively big to explore, but you’ll quickly become used to the layout for each one. You’ll see unique monsters for each of them, while each has a boss you’ll need to kill if you come across them. You’ll also notice many of the monsters from Supercell games.
Different powers and classes
The best part of Squad Busters is that each character has a specific power and class. For the latter, you have your tanks with damage per second (DPS) and your healers, as examples. There are also ranged fighters. You’ll need to learn the abilities of each fighter to know when to use them at the right time to clear the field.
The beta won’t be open for long
You won’t have long to test the beta for Squad Busters, so see and if you’re able to register and download the game. There’s no news as to when we can expect the full game, but we’re excited for when it launches.
