Darkflow Software and Gaijin Entertainment are pushing the boundaries of the Battle Royale genre yet again. Join the players of Cuisine Royale in their struggle for ultimate victory, but this time, you are not only searching for sought-after weapons and armour, but also the body parts to attach them to! Keep a keen eye out for legs, arms and other vital parts you may not want to miss – after you’ve found yourself a head, of course.
But there’s no need to worry, as you won’t start out being nothing more than a torso (in fact, you lack that, too). The mannequin you are joining the battle with does have some human resemblance, but you won’t be able to make the most out of the items you find before constructing yourself in true Frankensteinian manner. Without a proper head, for example, you won’t be able to eat, giving you no chance to replenish lost health. And while your weak mannequin hands may be able to hold a light weapon, you won’t be able to haul yourself over walls and obstacles without a proper set of biceps.
Better, faster, stronger! The more proper body parts you gather, the better your character will be. Besides providing for basic life functions, gathering the body parts of the game’s two main characters will add neat bonus characteristics to the mix. Clyde’s iron-esque buttocks will increase your protection from zero to hero, while his thick head will help to better resist the dangerous effects of the zone, which means you’ll take less damage when out of the playable area. Annie, on the other side, provides your character with an experienced diver’s torso, allowing you to save your breath for longer, while her left and right arm will speed up the reload of your weapons and reduce firearm recoil respectively. You can find a total of 14 different body parts – 7 male and female each – which can be combined in any way you can imagine (or would rather prefer not to).
