Battle royale games are manifold, but what they involve is largely the same: Many players go in, only one goes out. Battle royale is unpredictable and crazy multiplayer mode where the only goal is to endure until you’re the only survivor.
5. APEX LEGENDS
It’s no wonder that Apex Legends’ player count reached over 25 million players in its first week. Respawn’s battle royale game came out of nowhere and surpassed genre stalwart Fortnite on Twitch in viewership figures in its first seven days.
4. DYING LIGHT: BAD BLOOD
If you’re looking for a fresh take on the battle royale genre, then what about trying a brutal battle royale? Light: Bad Blood. Blending together PvE and PvP elements, Bad Blood sees 12 players battle it out with rudimentary weapons to take blood samples and escape the map.
3. PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the basic battle royale premise done right. With frequent PUBG updates and new PUBG maps, the chart-conquering sensation is replete with features and is addictive beyond belief.
Fortnite has, for now, been supplanted at the top of the Battle Royale heap, but if you prefer a more cartoony look or you just enjoy frantically building structures, Fortnite is for you.
1. CALL OF DUTY: WARZONE
Warzone deviates from the standard battle royale games formula in pretty much every area… Save for the fact that there’s still an ever-shrinking circle of death forcing all 150 players into conflict until only one team remains. There are respawns in the form of a bizarre 1v1 duel in the Gulag, you can collect cash and spend it on respawning teammates or killstreaks at Buy Stations, and you can even set up your best Warzone loadout before a match and call it in as a reward.
