Divine Rush: Everything We Know

Step aside, Fall Guysthere’s a new fish in town—a god-centric 16-player “platformer royale” that will be looking to merge elevated obstacle courses with a host of customizable deities. That’s right, Divine Rush is on the cusp of finding its footing in the online world, and from the sounds of it, it’ll be aiming to launch on PC at some stage later this year.

At the time of writing, Divine Rush is just about done with its pre-alpha phase, which means, while there are still several items on the docket to address before it gets a full release, it’s headed towards the right direction. With that said, if you’re a little eager to get ahead of the curve before Gameloft make the final decision to unleash it to the Epic Games Store, then be sure to read on for a few quick updates. Here’s everything we can tell you about Divine Rush based on the information that’s been provided to date.

What Is Divine Rush?

Divine Rush is a 16-player Fall Guys-type online multiplayer game in which players are invited to take control over one of several gods—almighty athletes who, for some reason, share a common goal of wanting to ascend the ranks and tackle some of the most deadly obstacles courses on the planet.

“Join a 16-player platformer royale as a champion of the gods,” the blurb reads in part. “Cross the finish line ahead of the competition by outsmarting your rivals using shooting, hooking, or trapping tactics, collecting diamonds, and earning upgrades. Do you have what it takes to be the last one standing?”

“Engage in the ultimate 16-player platformer royale where you embody a champion of the gods to sprint through challenging courses, strategically use your hero’s special abilities to outrun and outsmart opponents or face elimination,” the game’s description continues. “Collect diamonds, steal from rivals, get upgrades, and be the last one standing, earning the favor of the gods in this fast-paced, elimination-style race.”

From the looks of it, Divine Rush won’t have any storyline, as such, but rather, an online competitive multiplayer mode that’ll see a sixteen-player lobby battling it out over a series of trials. According to the devs, each character (or god, in this case) will have access to a nexus of attributes, which will allow you to take full advantage of various offensive, defensive, and speed-based abilities. So, whilst there will be some level of flexibility in the gameplay side of things, it’s hard to say whether or not there’ll be a story mode, at least in the traditional sense.

If you’ve ever tapped into the likes of Fall Guys or, for good measure, Stumble Guys, then you’ll no doubt have a basic understanding of how Divine Rush operates. In a similar fashion as the aforementioned duo, players will enroll in a collection of obstacle courses, all of which are likely to include ramps, slides, and a whole bunch of other elevated or inflatable set pieces. As it turns out, all of these courses will provide unique designs that change in each new session, thus making it something of an endless loop with randomized levels.

“Sprint, wall-run, plunge, dash, and avoid obstacles to beat your rivals to the finish line,” the game’s description adds. “Show off your platforming skills by using the environment to your advantage to navigate tricky obstacles, take speed lanes to gain the lead, time your jumps perfectly to get ahead, or masterfully cross large gaps. As you progress, the levels get more challenging, and there are infinite levels that are procedurally generated to make your play-through unique every time.”

“Every hero has a special ability, so choose the best one wisely to fit your runner’s style,” the blurb expands. “Do you prefer an offensive, defensive, or speed-based approach? During each race, you can collect or steal diamonds, which will help you augment your hero’s ability list and give you an edge in the next round. You have the freedom to create endless play builds that cater to your play style. From jetpacks to shields, the choice is entirely yours!”

Divine Rush was initially teased by Gameloft earlier this week, at which point the developer showcased several of the game’s key features, including its roster of characters, as well as some of the procedurally generated courses that will make an appearance in the upcoming launch season.

To get the freight in motion, the team recently released a pre-alpha version of the game, which took place over several days before closing down on April 8, 2024. With any luck, the final version of Divine Rush will arrive on PC at some point in late 2024.

Release Date, Platforms & Editions

Divine Rush will be heading to PC via Epic Games Store at some point in 2024. Here’s hoping, then, that it also finds its way to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch at some point in the near future. With any luck, Gameloft will announce a console version over the next several months; a Q1 2025 launch seems the most likely, though it’s still a little too early to predict.

Edition-wise, Gameloft has yet to announce any plans to release a special or digital deluxe version outside of its base copy on the Epic Games Store. If anything of the sort does come to light, then news is sure to follow at some point ahead of its hopeful 2024 release date.
