Eternal Return Overview

Eternal Return: Black Survival is the first battle royale game of its kind. The game offers a fresh take on the genre by combining the best elements of battle royale, survival, and MOBA games, into one unique package. Choose from 18 playable heroes with different skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Drop into the large urban island of Lumia Island where you’ll need to loot and gather resources to craft weapons and gear while trying to survive against 17 other players and navigating a progressively shrinking map. Gain experience points to level up your skills by performing various actions such as looting, laying traps, crafting, and killing mobs. Craft better and more powerful gear by combining existing ones with the required materials to gain an edge over your opponents and emerge as the last man, duo, or squad standing.
