BOSTON — August 4, 2020 — Award-winning independent game developer Proletariat today announced that their highly-anticipated magic-focused battle royale title, Spellbreak, will be one of the first titles on the market to support cross-progression when it launches for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Players will be able to create a Spellbreak account and access it on any supported platform to maintain their game progression, customizations, and stats. Players will also be able to use their account to easily find friends and create cross-platform squads.
“Breaking new ground in multiplayer titles has been Proletariat’s mission since the beginning,” said Seth Sivak, CEO of Proletariat, Inc. “Introducing cross-progression means you can play Spellbreak however you want, with whomever you want, and always ensure your progress in-game follows you to whatever platform you’re playing on. If you’ve leveled up to Master Toxicologist on your PlayStation 4, all of the time you have invested is still with you if you log-in to your game on PC, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch.”
Spellbreak is a AAA fantasy battle royale experience featuring epic magic combat and powerful spellcasting. Players choose a class, weave spectacular spell combinations, and fight to become an all-powerful battlemage. Featuring a deep item and class system, Spellbreak allows players to dominate the Hollow Lands as a solo competitor or conquer their foes with friends in a non-stop quest for survival.

Founded in 2012 by a group of game-industry veterans from Harmonix, Turbine, and Insomniac, Proletariat is an award-winning game developer with the mission to deliver groundbreaking multiplayer titles.
The studio’s first major title, World Zombination, debuted in early 2015 as a coveted “Editor’s Choice” on the iOS App Store. Attracting millions of players worldwide, it went on to be named to Apple’s “Best of 2015” list and developed a reputation for bringing AAA quality and depth to the mobile MMO landscape.
After developing a passion for live streaming as part of their transparent development process — including live development streams and hundreds of lets plays — they created two distinct, but symbiotic new products: Streamline, a fast-paced arena game with full live stream integration, and Streamote, a backend and website that enables viewers to interact with their favorite broadcasters and control what’s on screen. Streamline was the first game to release as part of Twitch Prime. Proletariat also created an RPG called StreamLegends, a Twitch extension that lets channel communities quest and build guilds together.
