Battle Royale made flesh
Do you believe in love? It is a pretty abstract concept that many people out there will never get to feel. Perhaps it is something that you yourself have never experienced before, but rest assured, it is closer than you might think. I mean, if you are into shooting genres and creativity, if you are into adventure and pure-raw action, if you are into playing thing from both your pc and your phone, you are about to experience the real deal: true love at first sight.
As its name clearly implies, Fortnite Battle Royale fits so neatly into the battle royale genre that your mind might have a hard accepting it. But, of course, that is justified by the fact that this survival action game is so hugely popular nowadays with it's very dynamic short play sessions of people battling up to 100 other live players in solo mode, pairs, or teams.
Why the big deal?
Are you wondering what is all this crazy fuzz about just a common game? Well, that is the thing, we are talking more than just a simple game here, we are talking about the most amazing blend of adventure, emotions, colors, sounds, animations, shooting and building action that is unlike anything else in competitive gaming.
Fast-paced action and accessible gameplay are also another obvious reasons why this is the most popular game around these days. It is ridiculously fun and strongly designed to encourage gamers to engage with each other by keeping sessions short. In other words, if you die, you can either automatically shadow the person who killed you or jump out to join another game immediately. What does that mean? Well, all in all that things will get very dynamic over there, and that it will be quite easy to jump in and out of battles.
It is not just that, because just exploring the map and looking for resources is also very fun, just as trying out different approaches to see what works best for you.
All of that together into one thing makes it more reasonable to grasp the nature of why people might go crazy about the game: a freeware with a very smart progression system keeping itself together with a constant flow of updates as a great way of complying with every-player's requirements as time goes by. I mean, what could go wrong?
Parents will love this entertainment too
We know that nowadays there are tons of games loaded with negative stuff like raw violence and explicit content that parents are not a fan of. Well, in that regard, there is another positive point when we talk about Fortnite Battle Royale. Even though the goal is obviously to be the last player standing by eradicating all of the rivals and there is indeed kind of a violent tone all around, you can rest assured that it is all cartoonish rather than bloody or gory. For example, when you defeat an enemy, rather than having a cruel death, the character just disappears absorbed by a drone. Plus, there is no language, sexuality, or alcohol/drug concerns when people plays this game.
Genres are evolving
As briefly stated before, we have a very special piece of art here, as it sets itself apart from the traditional genres, evolving into something else, closer to the pinnacle of creativity than any games before it. What we have here in the end is bland military simulation vibe with raw colors and an outstanding building system that is quite unlike anything else.
Ready for the challenge?
Fortnite Battle Royale ends up being a creation of an engaging twist on the battle royale genre that strongly stands out from the competition, as it is also head and shoulders above.
The essence of this magic is not the shooting itself, but the stuff around it like the building, that helps the game to differentiate itself from every other battle royale game, flagging what truly makes it special. In the end, almost everything that is not the ground can be mined for wood, stone, or steel, which can be used to create anything that you need, indeed a massive system with infinite possibilities.
Are there any cons in there? Well, to be honest, if you want to find something negative, it would be that this game is so much fun that losing can make you want to snap the controller in half. So, with all of that being said: Would you be willing to you survive it?
