Fortnite Battle Royale is the gaming phenomenon
There are other battle royale games, most notably PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), but Fortnite has established itself as the leading title for a number of reasons.
Fortnite Battle Royale is free-to-play (PUBG costs £26.99 on Steam and £24.99 on Xbox One), and those that do choose to spend real money on in-game items will benefit only cosmetically, not gaining any in-game advantage. It’s also available on more platforms than its rivals: the aforementioned Android and iOS devices, plus PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Fortnite‘s cartoonish graphics, smaller map and faster gameplay-loop arguably make it a more accessible experience than PUBG, with rounds lasting only a few minutes.
