    After much waiting and uncertainty, Disorder arrives at Android, iOS and PC. The game is officially released and is far from being an “Apex Mobile”, and even further from any evolution (or revolution) in the Battle Royale (BR) genre.

    In reality, Disorder bets on a mix of shooter sub-genres. First, the game features its 5v5 mode, where players will battle in a small setting. The objective is to dominate a certain zone and activate a device.

    After this introduction, the BR mode is opened. But with many differences from other games of the genre. Starting with the agents. There are 16 characters each with unique abilities, which can be used on the battlefield or unlocked as you "evolve" each of them.

    There is no loot. As you play, you earn a virtual currency that can be exchanged for items such as helmets, vests, boots, ammo, etc. You already get off the boat (no plane) armed and can pick up some weapons from other players who die.

    There are bots in the game, but they are completely different characters from the main agents. So whenever you encounter one of these bots, you'll know right away that it's not a player.

    Skills are very appealing and essential on the battlefield. There are characters that can activate a radar and locate enemies or even become invisible. All for a limited time, of course.

    The bad part about the variety of agents is that some of them can't take weapons from other agents. There are characters specialized in their activities, for example, snipers. They cannot use assault rifles, only pistols and long-range rifles.

    There is no blue zone or “gas” to chase you. The mission is to reach a silo and avoid firing it. The team that gets to the silo first and deactivates it wins. However, deactivating it takes a long time and this will attract a lot of enemies.

    Compared to the original beta, the game has greatly improved its movement. But the improvement came with some sacrifices. Disorder is poorly optimized and runs well only on high-end smartphones.

    For now the game is only in English, which can be an obstacle for those who do not master the language and need to understand exactly the missions and description of each character's ability. However, I believe that soon the game will receive a patch in Spanish.

    The title of the game is even ironic, since Disorder literally proposes a disorder of the shooter genre. The game has several unusual mechanics in the genre. Several new modes that will still debut in the game and much more. It seems like NetEase literally took all the ideas and threw them into one game.
