Feature: A plethora of games to scratch that same Minecraft itch

Games like Minecraft – 16 best games like Minecraft from the past ten years

There have been a great many games like Minecraft over the past decade. Which is to be expected, because who wouldn't want to capitalise on the runaway mainstream success of the decade, and the best-selling video game of all time? There are many things that are very special about Minecraft, and remain more or less unmatched even ten years later; but we've done our very…

Fortnite Chapter 2 is live, exploring a whole new world

After being swallowed by a black hole, Fortnite has now returned as Fortnite Chapter 2. Month. That's a month, Epic. Month takes the battle royale action to a whole new island, one which (so far) doesn't bear the scars of two years of mystical and cataclysmic events. Month even adds fishing, which now makes Fortnite officially an RPG (sorry, I don't make the rules).

Fortnite: Battle Royale has been replaced by a black hole [Updated]

Update: The black hole has secrets. More below. Fortnite: Battle Royale's ominous countdown has ended, and a rocket barrage fractured its (extremely pretty) skydome. Then all the players, the entire map, and even the long-suffering battle bus were hoovered up into oblivion. Now the entire game's been replaced by a mysterious (and occasionally horrifically flickering) black hole. A normal Sunday night.

Fortnite teases a clean slate with leaks for Fortnite: Chapter 2

Fortnite's had a good run. Since an admittedly awkward 2017 launch, it's become this cultural behemoth, completely unparseable yet unstoppably popular. But it's acquired some bloat over those two years - Map locations have vanished, reappeared and warped in and out. Weapons and gimmicks have floated in and out of an interdimensional vault, a vault intimately tied to the battle royale's ongoing plot. That's plenty…

Clocks across Fortnite are counting down to the end of the world this Sunday

In our fleshy real world, the doomsday clock is a nifty little system for working out how close the human race is to oblivion. As of this January, it sits at two minutes to midnight, thanks to the "simultaneous existential threats" of climate change and war. Never one to reject a good idea, Fortnite: Battle Royale has implemented its own countdown to the end of…

Fortnite is too “addictive”, lawsuit claims

*Pop*. That's the sound of a can of worms springing open, the contents of which are now swarming across my face as I grapple with this story. A Montreal law firm has requested authorisation to launch a class-action lawsuit against Fortnite for being too addictive. They're doing this on behalf of the parents of two children, aged ten and fifteen. Core to Calex Legal's suit…

Epic defend Fortnite’s new cross-platform matchmaking

Throwing Fortnite players from all platforms into the same matches was a bold move risking horrible imbalance, yet Epic are still confident their matchmaking will work it out. The idea that someone on PC with keyboard and mouse playing against a person tapping on a pocket telephone or twiddling a diddy Switch is a weird one to me. Epic trust that their matchmaking system will…

Fortnite’s apocalypse enters overtime as Season 10 steals one more week

Fortnite's latest patch delays the inevitable. Oh, the end is still very much nigh for Battle Royale Season 10 - the apocalypse has just been pushed back a week, is all. Rather than ending this Sunday, October 6th, Fortnite's tenth season will now come to a close one week later on October 13th. Epic Games haven't quite revealed why Season 11 has been pushed back.…

Batman grapples into Fortnite Battle Royale

Battle-royale-slash-ginormous-advertising-platform Fortnite has confirmed its Batman partnership in a blink and you’ll miss it livestream. Luckily, as is the power of online video, you can watch it again at your leisure, including right below. Or you can hop right into the game, where there are doubtless many bats competing to be the last one standing.

Fortnite plays Prop Hunt and scoffs tacos in new zones

A murderer could be hiding inside a toilet, lamp, lounger, car, barbecue, bin, or even fluffy plant in Fortnite Battle Royale, thanks to the weird new zone added in today's update. Whilst in Moisty Palms you have the magical ability to transform into a random prop by crouching. You cannot shoot while transformed but you can run, and surely no one will notice anything suspicious…

Fortnite’s new crossover event is advertising Borderlands 3

Epic have long sold Fortnite as an advertising platform through crossover events, but the latest stands out from prior crossovers by advertising another video game. The FortniteXMayhem event is now live, turning a corner of the map into a Borderlands 3 cartoon dustland. Advertising for another game is quite odd, with previous branded events being more for the likes of John Wick 3, Avengers: Infinity…

Fortnite’s mechs are now less murdersome

Honking great mechs stomping around and blasting rocket barrages is not so much fun in a game where most players are squishy humans scampering about on foot, Epic have conceded. They've rolled out a comprehensive series of balance tweaks reducing mechs' power, though they still haven't removed them. Epic added the B.R.U.T.E. mechs to Fortnite with the start of Season 10 on August 1st, and…

Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Watch Fortnite while you play Fortnite with the World Cup’s picture-in-picture

I'll fess up to occasionally half-watching something on my second screen while playing competitive games, but I'm not sure how I feel about Epic Games planning to show players competitive Fortnite while they're already playing Fortnite. When the Fortnite World Cup Finals kick off on Friday, see, people who are already playing Fortnite will get to fill a corner of their screen with a World…

Fortnite ditches the other 98 combatants for a one-on-one mech-kaiju clash

Fortnite Battle Royale has once again laid down its weapons for a brief time. At least, its human inhabitants did, the better to watch a clash between a kaiju from the depths and a tacked together robot, each bent on destroying the other. These kinds of events have apparently become such a draw for players invested in the weird world surrounding Epic’s battle royale that…

Fortnite Battle Royale unvaults old guns and modes for a fortnight in the sun

Epic Games are on holiday for the next two weeks, but before they left for some much-needed R&R (especially after all that crunch), they lined up a summer event for Fortnite Battle Royale. The 14 Days Of Summer event is live now and runs until the devs return on July 8th. Every day, they'll be 'unvaulting' a weapon or item removed from the game for…

EA: “We don’t call them loot boxes”, they’re “surprise mechanics”

Brace yourself. It is once again time to talk about boxes. When questioned yesterday by the UK government's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, the vice president of EA's legal and government affairs insisted on describing loot boxes as "surprise mechanics". I read her language choice as partly a doomed attempt to move away from the stigma attached to loot boxes, and partly to do…
