Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – 8 best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale is, so far, the pinnacle of the decade-old battle royale game genre. It's no understatement to say that we haven't seen a game enter the mainstream in this way since Minecraft - but it's not the only battle royale out there, and the genre has never before seen such quantity nor such quality. We'll go over a handful of our favourite battle…

DayZ opens alpha sign-ups for its Survivor GameZ battle royale mode

DayZ, arguably the game that started the explosion of battle royale shooters, is becoming one itself. Or at least adding one as an optional mode. To Bohemia Interactive's credit, Survivor GameZ doesn't sound like the standard 'closing circle of death'. Instead, it's more inspired by the original Battle Royale film and novel, with players constrained to looting, shooting and evading zombies in a series of…

World Of Warships adds… let me double-check my notes… a post-apocalyptic battle royale mode

Today, a day which is not April 1st, multiplayer naval rumble World Of Warships launched a battle royale mode. With a kooky post-apocalyptic setting. In a game about historical warships. Unless someone has gone to great lengths to replace my calendar so I think it's June and not April, this is happening. Alrighty then. As an observer, I am delighted by this wild tonal shift.…

Feature: Trial by Firestorm

Love and loathing in Battlefield Firestorm

Battlefield Royale, or Battlefield V Firestorm if you're an EA executive who shouldn't be trusted with naming things, is terrific. Sometimes. When you're oh-so-slowly tiptoeing through a building, anxiously attempting to outflank a foe as they do the same. Or when you spend a solid five minutes laying in a ditch, your patience pays off, and you spectacularly blow up a tank with your last…

Battlefield V’s Firestorm is now lit

I still cannot tell you why Battlefield V's battle royale mode is not named Battlefield Royale, but I can tell you that this so-called 'Firestorm' has launched today. It's a battle royale game, right, but in Battlefield - and with a swish ring of fire closing around you, an inferno on the horizon that eats through buildings in that pleasing Battlefield destruct-o-tech way. I wouldn't…

Feature: DICE with death

The real star of Battlefield V’s battle royale is a giant, roaming bonfire

DICE appeared to drop the ball when they didn't call Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale offering 'Battlefield Royale'. They called it Firestorm instead, which sounds like a terrible Steven Seagal film you'd buy for 99p at a petrol station. Having now played the mode, due as a free update next Monday, I can see why they went with it. The titular blaze dominates the whole…

Notmycar is battle royale but with gun-toting cars and a tiresome attitude

"Everything else is just a walking simulator" is just one example of the bug-eyed posturing with which Skybound Games announce Notmycar, their attempt to snaffle a piece of Fort-Legs pie with a free-to-play, automotive-based battle royale. Notmycar takes the attitude that, if the car-wrecks don't bring all the boys to the yard, maybe being massively obnoxious will. "Are you tired of the same games day…

Battlefield V starts Firestorm battle royale on March 25

What happens if you fall into a burning ring of fire? It's a given that you'll fall down, down, down while the flames climb higher and that doubtless burns, burns, burns. What many don't expect is that you'll then lark about on a big red tractor with your pals and blast other firefools to pieces with some serious artillery. That's how it'll go in Firestorm,…

Last wizard standing ’em up Spellbreak zaps out a closed alpha

"What if X but wizards" is a question that's lead to many of my favourite things. Dota. Star Wars. Bernie Sanders. So I'm glad to see Spellbreak asking that question of battle royales, and returning with a spell-slinging last man standing 'em up that just launched in closed alpha. You can pay to get in immediately, or sign up in the hopes that they'll let…

Apex Legends is the battle royale from Respawn, and we have good news about the robot

Hello dear reader, ravenous chewer of news. Here is a steaming Apex Legends fact heap for you. Firstly, it is real - a great start. It has probably been released by the time you read you this, and is available free for PC-havers on Origin. It’s one of those battle royale games, but it’s also a bit more exciting than that, which I’ll get to…

Titanfall crew Respawn reveal their new game today – and might release it immediately

Titanfall but battle royale but without the mechs: that's the word on the street about what we can expect from Apex Legends, the next game from Respawn Entertainment. The Titanfall & Titanfall 2 studio, which these days is but one limb on the EA millipede, has confirmed they'll be revealing the game today, and that Apex Legends is indeed its name. Meanwhile, rumour swirls that…

Stardew Valley has a battle royale mod, because of course it does

A gentle breeze lapped against the hay bales. Farmer Wyatt leaned against his porch, soaking in another day of rural paradise. Pigs snuffled, chickens chirped. Then one of the 99 other farmers caved his skull in with a hoe. Stardew Valley modder "Ilyaki" has brought battle royale to the nominally peaceful farming-sim. Time to sharpen your pitchforks.

Cool wizards will battle in a royale manner in Spellbreak

What if battle royale but wizards? Okay, Battlerite Royale, sure. But what if battle royale but wizards and big flashy magic spells hurling whirlwinds and rocks and giant walls of fire and spaffing special effects all over? Ah, for that you'll want to look to Spellbreak, an upcoming battle royale starring cool wizards. Mate, even if you're not interested in battlers royale, you might want…

Battlefield V’s battle royale mode will have objectives and tanks

Last night, I stopped thinking about Battlefield V's battle royale mode as a semi-interesting inevitability and started getting excited. I'd just finished a three-hour stint in the open beta, when my fading memories of Battlefield's mesmerising war soup had been replaced with fresh ones. I quit out to find EA had dropped the first concrete details about what their spin on battle royale would involve,…

Last Tide is battle royale with sharks, out now in early access

What a fool! While I was having a disappointing time battling royale with dogs nipping at my ankles in Fear The Wolves, I could've been chumming the waters to draw sharks to bite off my foes' toes in Last Tide. Formerly known as King Tide, the undersea battle royale FPS from the studio behind Depth entered early access on Monday and I'm still pleased by…

Fear The Wolves enters early access, taking battle royale to Chernobyl

For stags and hens who want their last free nights more dangerous than a stay at Paradise Resort, Vostok Games today launched battle royale 'em up Fear The Wolves into early access. It follows the basic recipe of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds but takes stags and hens to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with added radiation, anomalies, hungry mutated wolves, and a whole load of jank. Vostok's claim…

Housemarque’s Stormdivers is a flashy battle royale

Now that Willennials have killed arcade games with our cold, dead hands, Nex Machina developers Housemarque have confirmed that their first steps outside their home genre in 25-odd years are indeed into the valley of battle royale. After cryptically announcing Stormdivers in April, Housemarque have now opened up and started shouting about it. Stormdivers is a third-person multiplayer battle royale 'em up, right, but also…

Mad Max-ish battle royale Fractured Lands slams into early access next week

Unbroken Studios's last-man-standing shooter Fractured Lands has earned my attention. Putting a Mad Max-inspired spin on an otherwise-familiar battle royale formula, everyone starts with their own ride. Assuming you can keep it fuelled, over the course of a match you can bolt on guns, spikes and additional armour to keep it rolling. After a brief run of closed testing, it's ready to launch into early…

King Tide is underwater battle royale with sharks

Hello, thalassophobes. King Tide is an upcoming battle royale about being launched into the ocean via torpedo, along with 99 other divers and going on a rampage while defending yourself from bloodthirsty sharks. Got it? Got it. It’s by the studio who made Depth, the multiplayer shooter of shark vs humanity. So, they were always well-placed to come up with “Plunkbat but subaquatic”. Sub-bat? Shark…
