With the success of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, other studios are jumping on the chance to include a battle royale mode in their games. Fortnite now has its own spin on the genre, which is available for all players to try out on the public test servers.
From the video description:
Introducing: Fortnite Battle Royale. 100 players. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments are combined with intense PvP combat. The last commander standing wins.
Fortnite isn’t the only game to try out the battle royale formula. Rockstar added a similar mode to Grand Theft Auto V’s online component, which tasks small teams to survive in a rapidly shrinking zone.
