About the Game

ABOUT THIS GAME

Cuisine Royale is an all-kitchen-warfare Battle Royale game with the most honest system for Loot Boxes ever. It's made by the developers of squad based MMO shooter Enlisted and is completely free. In battles, you get ingredients that are used for "cooking" new suites, masks, gestures and other cosmetic items that don't influence your combat effectiveness.

Features:

  • Dinnerware will finally be able to show off its true potential: Use a colander as head protection, equip a wok as a formidable breastplate, or strap on a massive waffle maker to be protected even against the largest calibers of weapons.
    Improve your characteristics in the battle significantly: Strapping on a medical dropper will provide you with accelerated health regeneration, a set of glasses will increase weapon accuracy and chewing on a cigar will turn you into a real Tough Guy!
  • Stand out from the crowd! In battles, you get ingredients that are used for "cooking" new suites, masks, gestures, tombstones and other cosmetic items that don't influence your combat effectiveness. You can also purchase optional "kitchen pass" that increases rewards per battle and unlocks additional recipes.
  • The most honest system for Loot Boxes: Those are scattered around the battlefield, and are free to open, their content is well labelled, and the drop chance of what is said to be inside is a 100% guarantee.
  • Fair play: you can play Cuisine Royale in first or third person view. In order to mitigate advantage of the latter, every player has a minion with a camera that can uncover the position of a player who is peeking around a corner. So if you see a butterfly or a drone - you should know that you are being watched.
  • Massive and intense battles: 34 players per session in total will head out from different parts of the map, starting only in their underwear and making their way to the center of a battlefield that is constantly shrinking in size.

FAQ

General Questions

Cuisine Royale is a ‘battle royale’ shooter. Find out more information about the game on the official website or on the Cuisine Royale Steam page.

The game is free to play until at least the end of Early Access, and doesn’t require subscription. Those who would love to support the development of the game, can purchase ingredients to create masks, suits, pants and other cosmetic items, and a Season Pass, which will allow you to get more rewards and level up faster!

All items that you can cook in the kitchen of Cuisine Royale are solely customization which don't affect gameplay. However, some complain that during Early Access, game developers should provide everything for free and not monetize them.
Cuisine Royale has authoritative game servers that enforce fair play. This also means, that we have to rent these servers from data centers that are not free. Beginning from Day 1 of Early Access and until the launch of the “Italian Weeks” Season, we have not only spent enormous efforts in development, but also more than a hundred thousand USD on servers alone, the more people that play, the more we spend.
We don't want to go bankrupt trying to make our game good (and popular), so we have decided to provide some of our customization features for those who support the game with Season Passes.
Again, all items that you can cook in the kitchen of Cuisine Royale are pure customization and have no effect on gameplay.

To play Cuisine Royale you can use either your Gaijin.Net account or play via Steam.

The Gaijin.NET Agent is recommended for set up at first launch of the game. The Gaijin.NET Agent is harmless and safe. It tracks updates in Cuisine Royale and downloads them to the game to its actual version (as well as any other Gaijin games installed on a PC). You can always turn off Automatic updates in the launcher settings.
Steam players can update and launch the game directly from the Steam Library, without using the launcher and the automatic updater. Though, we still recommend the use of automatic updates, launching the game via the launcher. It will allow you to update the game to the actual version at any time.

The actual system requirements can be found in the ‘About’ page on the game website or on the game’s Steam page.

You can switch the language in the Launcher or in the game settings (right click the game title in Steam library – Properties – Language) if playing via Steam.

Game questions

36 players take part in each session. Currently we have three modes available:
SOLO – a deathmatch where each player fights for themselves.
DUO – battles for 2-player squads.
SQUAD – battles for 3-player and 4-player squads. You can also try yourself in these battles fighting alone or in a team of two players.

Yes, you can find contacts in the game main menu, add other players to your friends list and invite them to join a squad to play together in DUO (2 players) and SQUAD (3-4 players) modes.

In games where both first person and third person views are available, the latter gives an advantage. A player can spot an opponent from behind an obstacle, while the opponent doesn’t know he’s been seen by his adversary nearby. In Cuisine Royale each player has a minion, which carries a camera in third person view. The third person view camera-man reveals the location of a player when looking from a corner. So be on the lookout. If you notice a butterfly or a small helicopter suddenly appearing from nowhere – you are being watched. If you switch to first person view, your minion will land on your left shoulder (you can see it, using the mouse plus the ‘C’ key).

Yes, there are servers available for Europe, East Asia, Eastern Europe and North America.

In the game shop you can purchase a Season Pass and ingredients to create cosmetic items. They do not give any gameplay advantages, neither do they improve any skills in the game.

Account security and forbidden game modifications

Yes, in Cuisine Royale we use the EasyAntiCheat system, which prevents unfair play and fraud. EasyAntiCheat follows a zero-tolerance strategy for unfair play in Cuisine Royale, and any account ban will be permanent.

Player passwords are not stored in a ‘database’ so it’s literally impossible to ‘steal’ it. For authorization we use crypto-resistant salted hashes, which can’t be used for obtaining player password, even if a malefactor ever gets access to the player database. Unfortunately, some of our players still use the same or similar logins and passwords to access different systems, which gives an attacker the best opportunity to steal information from unsecured sources and use it to compromise careless player accounts. We advise you to use a unique complex password for your War Thunder account; it will greatly improve your personal data security.
To increase the protection of your account from hacking and theft attempts, you can enable a two-step authorisation system for your account utilizing the Google Authenticator service. This system has been introduced to protect your account in any case, even if a malefactor is able to get your password. To use the Google Authenticator, the only thing you will need is a smartphone based on either the iOs, Android or BlackBerry operating system. However, unofficial applications for Windows phone and desktop computers also exist. To enable the two-step authorisation, you will need to login at the general login page located at: https://login.gaijin.net/.
