Fortnite: Battle Royale

Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play multiplayer action game developed by Epic Games. The game is based on the battle royale formula and is similar to e.g. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. A hundred players are transported onto an island with almost nothing in their inventory. A player is tasked with finding or looting weapons, traps, and other pieces of gear. The game offers players much leeway - one can run around and shoot as much as he likes, nonetheless, he can also assume the stealth approach, hide in an appropriate spot and eliminate the foes with a sniper rifle. Additionally, one can acquire more resources from buildings, trees, etc. and use them to construct numerous objects such as stairs, covers, and bridges. The only objective a player is tasked with is staying alive until the end of a match. This task is even more difficult due to the fact that the battlefield shrinks continuously. The game has been based on Unreal Engine technology, also used in the production processes of such games as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Tekken 7.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is a third-person action game featuring battle royale mechanics. The game has been developed by Epic Games, one of the most recognizable studios in the industry. Throughout the years, the studio has delivered such video games series as Gears of War and Unreal. Moreover, it is known for creating the Unreal Engine technology, which has been used in the production processes of such games as Final Fantasy VII Remake (developed by Square Enix), Tekken 7 (developed by Bandai Namco) and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (Bluehole). Fortnite: Battle Royale for PC / Windows has evolved from Fortnite, however, it is a free-to-play and standalone production, which does not require the base game in order to work.

Mechanics

Fortnite: Battle Royale delivers only a multiplayer mode, in which a player has but one objective - stay alive until the match ends. A hundred players are transported onto an island with almost nothing in their inventory. When over the battlefield, they have to exit their transport and skydive towards the location they see fit to start the match, e.g. near buildings. It is important, as at the beginning of a match, a player is equipped only with a pickaxe, and he has to find or loot weapons, traps, and other pieces of gear. Thus, one has a bigger chance to find something useful in a house or a farm.

The game offers players much leeway - one can run around and shoot as much as he likes to kill all the encountered enemies. In addition, one can hide inside one of the buildings and hope to avoid taking a bullet. Finally, a player can assume the stealth approach, hide in an appropriate spot and eliminate the foes with a sniper rifle. One should remember, however, that the area of the game is continuously shrinks and anyone outside of it receives damage until he dies (provided he does not return to the game area).

The aforementioned elements and mechanics make Fortnite: Battle Royale similar to such games as e.g. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Nonetheless, the game described herein stands out from similar games in terms of its mechanics also known from the regular Fortnite, allowing a player to acquire resources from buildings, trees, etc. These resources can be used to erect diverse structures such as walls protecting one from the enemy fire. Also, a player can build makeshift stairs to get to a building's roof.

Technical aspects

Fortnite: Battle Royale for PC / Windows looks exactly the same as the regular Fortnite. The game has been based on the Unreal Engine technology and delivers high-quality visuals. The developers from Epic Games decided to implement humorous and somewhat cartoonish style into their game.
