The battle royale game from Epic Games, Fortnite, is one of the most popular games right now. Since the 90s, games like Quake and Counter-Strike have changed the multiplayer landscape forever. The battle royale genre has done the same, starting with shooters like Call of Duty and evolving into games like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
When it comes to multiplayer and battle royale games, there is still a debate as to whether these games offer a better experience on PC or consoles. Either way, if you’re into it, it’s time to explore some Fortnite-like games with a unique vibe.
This is a great example of a game like Fortnite Creative. You can create any items you want within the game, and you can also create mods that you can purchase with real money. Roblox has seen many popular video games, including Call of Duty: Warzone, recreated by their creators.
Another popular mode in Roblox is called Jailbreak. This mode consists of two teams (prisoners and guards), in which the prisoners try to escape from the prison by sneaking around and evading the guards. Roblox is very addictive even if it seems that it is only for Lego fans. In Roblox, you will discover and do things that you can’t even do in Minecraft.
9 Population: one
Residents: One has been described as “Fortnite only in VR,” but there’s more to it here than meets the eye. This game is developed and published by BigBox VR, Inc. This game offers a unique first-person battle royale gaming experience. Since it is a VR game, it is not as smooth as Fortnite, but it offers similar, albeit more realistic gameplay.
In Population One, players push themselves off a launch pad at the start of the game and then drop to their designated location on the map. As soon as it touches the ground, just like in Fortnite, a mad dash begins, as players scavenge for necessities like armor, weapons, and other items.
8 Vampire: Disguise – the hunt for blood
For all you Vampire: The Masquerade fans out there, this is probably the game they’ve been wanting for a long time. Imagine Fortnite meets Vampire: The Masquerade, and we can call it Bloodhunt. This game is unique because of the blood sucking element in it, and it is fast paced, even faster than Fortnite. Sucking blood not only fully restores your health, but also gives you some special abilities, for example, an increase in melee strength.
Another interesting thing about the game is that you have two lives, not one like in most kings. The game takes place in a small village in Prague in the world of darkness. There are great locations like nightclubs, hidden tombs, and most importantly, beautiful rooftops. You can choose one of the five clans: Brujah, Nosferatu, Toreador, Ventrue and Tremere.
7 Paradise ring
Developed by Aurora Studios and published by TCH Scarlet Limited, Ring of Elysium has been a hit as a unique battle royale title. The game is divided into different seasons, with each season adding three new characters to the story. The knowledge is very deep, and we’ve only seen three seasons so far: Arctic Survival, Paradise Falls, and Storm Europe.
The gameplay mechanics are similar to those of Fortnite, but the graphics and character cosmetics are amazing. By the way, the only thing you can pay for in this game is cosmetics. What sets this game apart from other battle royales is the hostile environment, which can be crazy at times. There are also different vehicles that players can use to move around the map while avoiding enemies and the weather.
If you prefer the Need for Speed style of battle royale, then this game is for you. Eliminator mode in Forza Horizon was first introduced in Forza Horizon 4. The game revolves around 72 drivers racing head-to-head, with only one emerging as the winner. Each driver starts out in a 1965 Mini Cooper, and must acquire better cars as the game progresses.
Players can get better cars as they are randomly dropped on the map during the game. This is crucial because a faster car increases your chances of winning the race. Finally, this proves why Forza Horizon is one of the best racing franchises of all time.
5 Rogue Corporation
Rogue Company is a free-to-play third-person tactical multiplayer shooter. The gameplay is reminiscent of Counter-Strike, particularly in the first two of the extensive 4v4 modes. The first mode is called Demolition, and it is similar to CS in that you have to plant a bomb to destroy an object or eliminate the other team.
The second mode is extraction, where you fight the other team to activate the station. The final mode is called Strikeout, in which players must eliminate each other, but they have a certain number of trophies. Another way to win is to hack the opponent’s respawn stations, so the number of respawns decreases. Finally, there’s Wingman, which is just a Strikeout mode with fewer players, 2v2.
4 Call of Duty: Warzone 2
If you are a fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, then this game is a no-brainer. The developers have taken all the good stuff from the Call of Duty series and turned it into a battle royale game. Unlike Fortnite, this is a more strategic team-based combat game. During the game, up to 150 players can start from the lobby.
There are plenty of maps to choose from, the main one being “The Farm”, which is a desert-like area with 20 points of interest. This map is larger than any map from Warzone 1, and a water area has been introduced into the map as well. Ashika Island is a map reminiscent of the battles during World War II on the Japanese islands.
3 Monitoring 2
If you like action and speed, you should give Overwatch 2 a chance. The cartoony graphics and other familiar elements will make Fortnite fans feel right at home. Overwatch 2 is a first-person shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Unlike the original Overwatch, where players played 6v6, in Overwatch 2 you can play in 5v5 matches.
Overwatch 2 offers 37 heroes to choose from, which fit into 3 classes: support, tanks, and damage. Creating teams with different characters with unique abilities is a lot of fun in Overwatch 2, so give it a try.
2 PUBG: Battlegrounds
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds also known as PUBG, is the king of battle royale. Since January 2022, the game is free-to-play and is largely responsible for creating and popularizing the battle royale genre. Like Fortnite, battles usually involve up to 100 players, but the main difference between PUBG and Fortnite is that you cannot build in PUBG.
PUBG features some of the largest maps in the Battle Royale universe, so players must adapt to different play styles. Similar to Fortnite, the focus is on loot and shooting most of the time.
1 Apex Legends
Apex Legends is supposed to be the number one battle royale game. Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, the game shares some similarities with Titanfall, including locations, weapons, and characters.
In Apex Legends, 20 to 30 teams of two to three players battle it out to the last team standing. The game is not just about weapons. Each character possesses unique superpowers known as Legends. Apex Legends is a free-to-play game, and players can only purchase cosmetics. It is probably the biggest competitor to Fortnite out of all the games mentioned in this article.
