Studio creators MrOkiDoki they are doing everything they can to stop the flow of players away from the tactical first-person shooter BattleBit Remastered. Promotions and updates They didn’t help much, so apparently it’s time to reach for a more serious solution. Everything indicates that the game will be available for free for some timeso that all potential interested parties can check it out.
Specifically, this is suggested by a heavily censored graphic (below) that the developers shared on the account yesterday BattleBit Remastered in the service X/Twitter. The mostly hidden dark yellow inscription probably reads “PLAY FOR FREE”. The upper part of the graphic probably shows the date when the game will be available on Steam.
It is expected that it will also be promoted. The discount – just like last time – should reach (at least) 20%. This will allow you to purchase the game for PLN 54.39 (instead of the standard PLN 67.99).

Of course, there is a slight probability that the hidden inscription is “NOW FOR FREE” – meaning that in a gesture of despair, the creators decided to switch to the free-to-play model. However, this is basically impossible, because the game debuted in Early Access only on June 15, 2023.
Although the industry media christened it BattleBit Remastered called “the tamer.” Battlefield”, this term has aged quite poorly. Why? Because although the shooter – created by only three people – was already quite successful before its premiere, currently lags far behind not only for Battlefield 2042but also much older Battlefield 1. The numbers prove this:
- last week in BF 2042 at the best moment of a given day there were about 32-36 thousand people;
- In BF 1 – 11-14 thousand people;
- while in BattleBit Remastered – “only” 5–8 thousand people.
It should be emphasized that this is not a very bad result – especially for an early access production. However, the current numbers fall short of the record from five months ago, which is 87,323 concurrent players. Let’s hope that being able to check out the game for free will help BattleBit Remastered at least close to this result. The actual premiere of this production is planned for 2025.
