Pune-based SuperGaming’s Battle Stars, an online multiplayer shooter game, is ramping up its localisation efforts with the addition of new playable characters and a map inspired by Mumbai landmarks. At a recent event in Mumbai, SuperGaming announced its collaboration with popular content creator Techno Gamerz (Ujjwal Chaurasia) to introduce a new playable character named “Techno”. The character is modelled after Chaurasia and comes with personalised messages and a unique weapon, as well as a “Techno Quest” objective-based quest.
Patil Character and Mumbai-Inspired Map Also Added
SuperGaming also introduced a second playable character named “Patil”, resembling a Mumbai police officer, and will soon release a female Mumbai-based playable character. The new map will feature Mumbai landmarks and was designed to capture the city’s essence. The game also includes new emotes based on Mumbai lingo.
