Epic Games, creators of ‘Fortnite‘ released a new and free game mode to their existing game called “Battle Royale.” Which is like an existing game on Steam called ‘Player’s Unknown: Battlegrounds‘ which is a multiplayer battle arena where you fight until the last man is standing, which it’s a lot like ‘The Hunger Games’ but in a form of a video game. I haven’t had a chance to play Epic’s new game mode but from what I’ve heard from various sites; Battle Royale is a lot like Player’s Unknown in a lot of ways which is good for us Mac gamers since Players Unknown: Battlegrounds is not for Mac and makes a great alternative for us.
If you don’t already know, Fortnite is a base building zombie surviving game with multiplayer which currently is still in “Beta” though you’ll have to pay to play it… or you can wait like I’m doing and play the game when it releases next year for free. I’m not too sure how the Battle Royale really fits into Fortnite but we’ll just have to see some of the other game modes Epic Games releases in the future.
Here’s a short little video previewing a look of Fornite’s new game mode “Battle Royale.”
