With the internet and apps flooding these days with different categories of games, we as an individual get totally confused as to which app we should install and which we shouldn’t. Which game is interesting, and which one is not.
Among the different games, we have these days, two have almost raced themselves high into the sky with millions of fan followers. These are the Player Unknown’s Battleground and Fortnite Battle Royale.
With over five million concurrent players at any one time between the two, Player Unknown’s Battleground and Fortnite Battle Royale aren’t just wildly successful games: in fact, these are the best phenomenons ever. But when it comes to PUBG vs Fortnite, which one is the right for you to play?
Taking a look at them, both Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite are great games worthy of your time. But if you actually want to know which of them is the best, then we should go and find the differences between these two. But how are we going to compare one to the other?
The Total Game Overview:
The Fortnite Battle Royale was made in just two months by the Epic Games’ Unreal Tournament team off the back of the PvE Save the World mode. Though, in the beginning, the mode was a clear PUBG imitation, so you might see that they share some fundamentals, but through slow adoption of the fort-building system and Epic’s constant barrage of updates, Fortnite has now emerged a faster-more paced, experimental game since its launch.
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds was the first of the battle royale-style games which had actually and first come to really explode the popularity. Created by Brendan Greene, the self-proclaimed creator of the battle royale genre, PUBG is a slower-paced and is like a more realistic than Fortnite. It is not quite a full-blown military sim, though very close.
Fortnite is more like the basic modes of PUBG in its official and custom games. But they have got the goods, players have the option of queuing into Duos or Squads as a solo player too. Unlike PUBG, Fortnite is always played from the same third-person perspective and building in first-person sounds like a nightmare.
PUBG has got several game modes spread across its official and custom games. For ranked play, players can choose to play solo, in a team of two, a full squad of four, or the very challenging 1-man squad. The game has also got matchmaking, so if you wish to play as a team with strangers in this game it is possible.
Fortnite has got more of a cartoonish styling which don’t match its militaristic arsenal. Its assault rifles, hunting rifles, sniper rifles, submachine guns, pistols, revolvers, rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and crossbows are all imitation of the real deal in appearance and behaviour. Also, in practice weapon recoil is nearly invisible, and bullet spread is only a problem for players who can never lift their finger off the fire button.
PUBG’s arsenal is pulled directly from real-world military arms. They have got an awesome assortment of sidearms, shotguns, assault rifles, and submachine guns in addition to grenades and more. Also, if you love an extra challenge, there are also sillier additions like a crossbow and the WW2-era Thompson submachine gun.
It is totally up to you to decide which game to play. But if you are still not able to decide, start with Fortnite as free-to-play means you can try it out with no risk and get a feel of whether the overarching battle royale game mode can be your choice.
