Its first season will go live on August 18. The game was initially planned to launch in early access first, but this was changed as the developer decided “The Rumble is good to go.” A launch date trailer was also released.

BREAKING NEWS FROM GRAPITAL CITY: Launch Day for Rumbleverse is August 11.
Sooner than you thought, right? We’re excited, too.
As you can see, we’ve been having fun in recent network tests. If you showed up to play, you’ve helped us calibrate the cannon on the Battle Barge. The Rumble is good to go, so we’ve decided that we don’t even need Early Access. On Launch Day, the game will be free to all – and available to anyone with the strength to download it. Duos will be live, so tag in a friend to watch your back. We know you’ve been eager to team up!
Season One for Rumbleverse will begin one week after launch. There will be a Battle Pass to equip the hardcore Rumbler with an additional path to earn rewards for their Locker Room. You’ll have a few days to settle into your new home in Grapital City and land a few punches to get ready.
The wait is almost over! Thank you for coming along on this journey with us, so far. We can’t wait to see you officially begin your career as a Rumbler. In the weeks to come, we’ll have more announcements about some of the gear you can buy to start your collection. As always, watch this space for updates, or follow any of those social media channels linked above.
