Just like any relationship with a game, you’ll get tired of playing the same game over and over. Once you think the game is too easy, you start looking for a different challenge––something that could possibly spice up your gaming arsenal. If you came from Fortnite, then I know just the games you HAVE to play to finally satisfy your craving for new elements, tactics, and overall gameplay.

The world of battle royale has quickly risen to the top ranks as gaming genres. Mixing survival, third-person shooters, and first-person shooters––there’s absolutely no way this genre could fail. It’s a good format for tournaments and if you’re looking to just play, it’ll definitely take the hours of your life unnoticeably.
Here are all the games you can play that feels just like Fortnite!
1. Call of Duty Warzone
Platforms Available: PS4, Xbox One, PC
If we’re talking about Battle Royale games, it’d seem like a major criminal injustice to leave out one of the most generational games the Call of Duty franchise has ever come up with: Call of Duty Warzone. The 150-player battle royal is based on Modern Warfare’s multiplayer––just with added guns, attachments, and a few quirks. Killstreaks aren’t “killstreaks” anymore as you’d just have to buy them with in-game money you can loot. The Gulag really sets this game apart as it is an added challenge for those who’ve just died––fighting to the death for a chance to respawn.
2. Apex Legends
Platform Available: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Coming from one of the most renowned video game developers in the world, Respawn Entertainment, comes Apex Legends. However, this isn’t like any of your Respawn games with giant mechs running all over the place and ruining your stuff. Apex Legends lets you play as one of ten Legends and each of these Legends inherit a special skill only they can use. Basically, it’s like Overwatch but instead of deathmatches, you’re given battle royale. From calling in an airstrike to healing allies, using the skills of these legends take time perfectly maneuver. Either all of you go insane with killing skills or supporting skills, this game will be loads of fun to play with your friends.
3. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
Platforms Available: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Android, and iOS
Price: $29.99 / £26.99 on PC, $29.99 / £24.99 on Xbox One/PS4, and PUBG Mobile is free
One of, if not, the most original battle royale games to ever exist. This is all before Fortnite was even given birth to. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds aka PUBG was once the king of all Battle Royales. The classic solo, duo, or team against everyone else with graphics and animations more realistic and war-esque compared to Fortnite––making it one of Fortnite’s greatest foes in the industry. This might’ve taken the number 1 spot on this list, but because PUBG hasn’t really updated anything in its game, it’s hard to gauge where it stands.
4. Ring of Elysium
Platforms Available: PC
Okay, Ring of Elysium might just be the hybrid of all the games that were discussed previously––including Fortnite. With the macho graphics of PUBG and COD Warzone as well as the outrageous add-ons to what I assume might be Fortnite-inspired. The character graphics are just out of this world and alongside that is a pretty good battle royale system. Just make sure the ash fall doesn’t catch up to you, okay? So you better use that BMX or skimobile to the best of its abilities. Oh yeah, good luck dodging bullets with that type of transportation.
Platforms Available: PC & PS4
The story behind H1Z1 and why it ended up on this list is crazy. First starting off as a completely different game––fighting off mobs of zombies in order to survive. It was that kind of shooting game, but ever since the battle royale scene blew up––they just had to follow the same steps. At first, they launched the “King of the Hill” mode wherein 150 people try to stay alive and my golly is this as fast-paced as you can think. Daybreak Games, the developer, launched a free-to-play H1Z1 Battle Royale on PC and PS4 and it honestly plays like PUBG mixed with a couple of antics from Fortnite.
6. Call of Duty: Blackout
Platforms Available: PC, PS4, and Xbox One
Making history, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is the first-ever COD without any single-player campaigns and only featuring Multiplayer, Zombies, and the topic of today, Blackout. Basically, Blackout is the first battle royale. Of course, you have the classic kill-all-to-win mentality––but you know Call of Duty, right? They have the most insane gunplay any battle royale can ever get. If you want to play Battle Royale on the maps that first started your love for FPS games, then make sure to give this one a try.
