I’ve played some Fortnite matches alone and with friends, but the game never it clicks with me. I don’t like building or dealing with expert builders. So I was excited to try out the previously PC only H1Z1, which recently started an open beta on PS4. While the basic setup of H1Z1 is similar to Fortnite, playing it…
Battle Royale games are a dime a dozen these days, each with unique tones and degrees of seriousness. Totally Accurate Battlegrounds offers the silliest take yet, with floppy-armed noodle people and deliberately glitchy gunplay taking the experience to absurd heights.
This weekend at DreamHack Austin, many squads will face off in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. And they’ll be doing it on a fantastically massive stage that highlights the theatrics and action of a 64-player, 16-team battle royale.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is getting a battle royale mode, developer Treyarch said today, following in the footsteps of PUBG and Fortnite with a mode called Blackout. It confirms Kotaku’s report from last month that Activision will be the first major publisher to join the battle royale craze.
Fortnite’s recent, big comet event was the start of something new for the cheery battle royale game. Nowadays, you don’t need to wait around for a special occasion to see the map change. Every update is an opportunity to see something different.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still working the kinks out of its new map, Sanhok, adding more and details with each new test period. The most recent test opened the map to all players, who have discovered strange golden chests lurking around the island.
At this rate, Civilization VI will have one by the end of the year.
Don’t let his superpowers fool you: Thanos’ arrival in Fortnite is surprisingly silly. Players are taking advantage of Thanos in the best ways, or using Thanos to spread cheer. Given that Thanos is supposed to be a homicidal villain, seeing him in Fortnite’s ridiculous world has been amazing.
The hottest game in the world has teamed up with one of the biggest movie franchises around, and while it’s technically a marketing ploy, damn if it’s not a good one. This is the most fun I’ve ever had with Fortnite.
You’ve probably heard about how a comet hit the Fortnite map by now. There’s a reason so many people were transfixed by this cosmic encounter: developer Epic made it feel like an event, worthy of wonder in the same way a real-world solar eclipse would be. In an age of instant social media updates, constant leaks and…
Now that the Fortnite comet has hit, the map is doted with craters. The biggest crater, as we all know, is located at Dusty Divot. You can’t really go to Dusty without entering a fight now. Regardless, one group of fearless Fortnite fans challenged themselves to build over the entire crater, and it turned into an…
There’s no shortage of battle royale-style games to sate my need to drop onto an island and fight to be last man standing. Yet I can’t help think about the one thing so many are lacking: an arena that wants to kill me as bad as the other players do.
PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds’ new event, War, turns the battle royale game into a regular multiplayer shooter full of large teams and quick respawns. It’s loud, messy, and a damn good time.
Lawbreakers developer Boss Key Productions released Radical Heights today as a free-to-play early access game on Steam. The “x-treme early access” battle royale game comes too late to cash in on the genre’s popularity. While it might have a few good ideas, it is one messy game.
Just days after publishing a blog post announcing a shift away from its struggling first-person shooter, LawBreakers, Cliff Bleszinski’s studio Boss Key Productions has announced a new Battle Royale-style game called Radical Heights.
Mere days after Far Cry 5 came out, it already had its first player-made battle royale maps in Arcade mode. A week later, there are now heaps of them. They vary in quality, but I’ve come across a few that are legitimately cool.
“Girls have officially ruined Fortnite mobile,” a Twitter user named Michael recently declared. “Girls in my school killed Fortnite mobile for me smh,” wrote Twitter user Julian.
