Fortnite Battle Royale Vs Player Unknown's Battlegrounds
« on: February 27, 2018, 02:49:55 pm »
The gaming landscape has changed, with a new genre stomping its way through the crowd to become a phenomenon. First came PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a mod that developed into the most popular game on Steam. Based loosely on Kinji Fukasaku’s 2000 movie Battle Royale, PUBG sees you taking part in a 100-player online deathmatch on a vast island

The second was Epic’s clever pivot with competing title Fortnite, a game entirely overshadowed by other shooters when it first launched. Epic saved the game from fading into obscurity by adapting PUBG’s Battle Royale-style gameplay into a free-to-play game. They called it Fortnite Battle Royale.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was the most popular game on Steam, so it will undoubtedly face copycats. However, when Epic Games released a Battle Royale mode for its survival shooter Fortnite, PUBG developer Bluehole responded negatively, saying it was "considering further action" against Epic which also happens to be the company that licenses PUBG's engine.
Some may say that Fortnite tries to copy PUBG, but that isn't wholly true. In reality, both titles are only similar in some areas, not all. Once you look past the basics of the games, you'll find that PUBG and Fortnite target very different types of players. We are gonna take the time to individually breakdown both games and figure out which is a better fit for personalised tastes. In both PUBG and Fortnite, 100 players have to parachute and land on a large island from an aerial vehicle ( a plane in PUBG and a battle bus in Fortnite). From there, players must search the game world for weapons, armor, healing items, and more in order to properly equip themselves for the battle that's about to ensue.

As everyone starts to engage in battle and beat each other, the area on the map that is considered "safe" begins to shrink. Players who are no longer in this safe zone take damage from a poisonous gas or radiation zone if they remain in the outer field or zone from the marked safezone circle. This mechanic ensures that all players will eventually run into each other. After the final combatants battle it out, the last man standing is considered the winner because he or she is the last man standing.

Finally, both titles have randomized loot spread throughout the play space to ensure that nowhere on the map becomes a "Prominent" location for looting. Where you find an assault rifle, one game may be the location of a pack of bandages in the next.

It doesn't stop there, either. Cover in PUBG is more important than it is in the majority of shooters; this is because being shot will cause you to take large amounts of damage, even if wearing body armor. Vehicles are also a major aspect of PUBG's gameplay sandbox. Using a car will allow you to reach locations much faster than sprinting, but both the windows of the car and the loudness of its engine will leave you a massive target to the players in your vicinity.
This kind of competitive play is what makes PUBG such a fierce and competitive game making one think on their feet and always be on the move, thinking about what their next move should be.

Fortnite essentially takes the Battle Royale formula and takes it in the opposite direction of PUBG, Where PUBG is competitive, skill-oriented and intense, Fortnite overall contains much more casual, relaxed gameplay.
Featuring a cartoony art style, simple gun mechanics, and a unique, creative base-building twist, Fortnite is aimed towards the types of players who care more about getting into some action than they do about reaching the end goal of victory. In Fortnite, bullets have no drop off with the exception of the sniper rifle, meaning that gunfights across distances are generally much easier and forgiving to the players.

Where Fortnite really sets itself apart from PUBG, though, is with its base-building mechanics. By harvesting things around you in the map, you can gain wood, stone, and metal resources which can then be used in construction. Players often will engage each other from the safety of their large stone fortresses or wooden sniper towers, but these structures aren't invincible. Anything created by a player can be destroyed with gunfire or explosives, although stone and metal are much more resilient than wood.

This high level of destructibility is also seen in the world itself. Rocks, trees, and even buildings are all able to be destroyed, meaning that all cover is only temporary. As a result of this, games in Fortnite feel a lot more "chaotic" (in a fun way) due to the fact most players feel obligated to always keep moving, which causes them to run into each other.

Fortnite is a relaxed Battle Royale experience that will offer you hours of fun gameplay

The conclusion I think I'll let you guys decide in the forum below so make sure to leave your thoughts on which game you think is better!

Haven't played PUBG. I started Fortnite BR this month and I feel like "building" forts is a bit annoying, maybe it'll feel better with time. It's fun and the Solo mode is a nice way to spend the most time on Server Connecting page unless you're good or hiding. :)

Next month or so I can try PUBG for the first time. :D
