Brawl Stars Season 3 update welcomes players to Starr Park

Supercell have gone live with their newest update for their scrappy mobile mega-hit, Brawl Stars. The update is available to download right now, prepping the game for Season 3 which kicks off next Monday on September 14th.

Fans who caught the recent Brawl Talk video from Supercell will know that Season 3 has a funky theme park flair with a new environment, new skins, and of course a new Brawler.

Colette is a cashier working at the Starr Park gift shop, making her a stalker-ish Brawler megafan. She sports a unique mechanic where her main attack damage is based on a target’s remaining health. Meanwhile, her super sees her charging through enemy ranks before being yanked back to safety like a yo-yo.

Season 3 will have its own Brawl Pass with 70 tiers. Other upcoming changes include the return of classic maps and quality of life improvements. You can check everything out below:
