Battle Royale News – You are in the right place!

The Battle Royale News section focuses on every niche of this market. From current patch notes to game and esports news. Our goal is to provide you with timely information about everything related to the BR genre. As Battle Royale game titles come and go, we make specific categories for different games but the main Battle Royale News section remains an archive of everything one might need to better understand the survivalist craze.

What is Battle Royale

Loosely based on the novel and film Battle Royale, these games feature a last-man-standing competition in a shrinking play zone. A battle royale game is any multiplayer video game that uses the last-man-standing gameplay mixed with scavenging and exploration elements. Battle royale games usually involve up to two hundred players with minimal equipment all fighting with limited resources to remain the last person standing.

The best battle royale games evolve this main survival concept further with various in-match activities and objectives to create an engaging narrative and play experience. Whilst design and setting might differ, the true tenet of battle royale games is its survivalist nature.

Battle Royale in Esports

Competitive play in Battle Royale Games has been discussed ever since PUBG became a mainstream title. Every new title thereafter has conceptualized a different approach to how they want their Battle Royale esports ecosystem to look like.

Fortnite focuses on individual or duos play in their competitive events. Apex Legends has three-player teams fighting multiple rounds between each other. PUBG has only focused on four-man squads for their competitive leagues.

The goal, however, in all three titles is to be the last one standing. Multiple rounds of play are almost always the case, mostly to avoid one-offs or “lucky” zone placements.

As Battle Royale’s are popping up left right and center and new esport models are being tested the way BR competition looks like might shift radically in the following years. We try to cover as much as of the development as possible in our esports news section.

Top 3 Battle Royale in Esports

These three games have an active and sprawling esports scene with teams and players constantly competing for a spot under the limelight.

1. Fortnite

Competitive Fortnite has become a massive phenomenon getting mainstream media attention and popularizing the Battle Royale games genre immensely. With a 16-year old winning 3 Million USD and 30 million USD in prize funds for the best fortnite players at the Fortnite World Cup, the focus was quickly shifted to this title as Fortnite News became mainstream.

Fortnite remains the mainstream Battle Royale title even the boomers know about.

2. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)

Hailed as the truest Battle Royale by purists. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds remains the Allfather of all Battle Royale games. PUBG was the first game to show Battle Royale Esports is possible on a massive scale and in a LAN environment where 16 teams simultaneously take to the stage to compete. Furthermore, it still holds the most stable competitive ecosystems out of all BR titles. You can find regular updates about PUBG Esports in our PUBG news section.

3. Apex Legends

Apex Legends took the BR world by storm with its completely different approach to the genre. The core principle of the last person standing is the only thing Apex kept. They then sprinkled some respawns, Overwatch, and Quake 3 into it to create an amazing fast-paced shooter that is unlike any of the other Battle Royale games.

Due to its uniqueness, it serves a specific niche of players that are too bored of the slow-paced nature of other games.

Betting Experience in Battle Royale

Esports betting in Battle Royale games is a largely different experience than most other esports titles. Ever since the first H1Z1 events, H1Z1 Betting Sites offered odds on individual performance and specific in-game outcomes tied to a match.

The main markets revolve around guessing the winner outright or the overall kill leader. Once PUBG became a global esports title with competitive leagues around the globe, more markets shifted towards season winners, match winners and head-to-head outrights became available for PUBG betting.

If you are interested in Fortnite betting or placing a bet on Apex Legends, your options might be a little limited. Due to its volatility and large number of participants, Fortnite has not become a stable betting market on most esports bookmakers. Similarly, Apex Legends has never become a mainstream competitive title as EA Games has not embraced competitive play entirely. Both games might feature some betting options on occasion but they are not yet a betting market you can fully invest on.

However, betting on Twitch streamers is gaining popularity and with it previously untapped markets are becoming available. If Fortnite or Apex Legends are your poison, you can most likely find your favorite streamers and bet on specific in-match outcomes as you follow their stream.


Battle Royale Games offer a different experience than any FPS game on the market. While they are still first or third person shooters by nature, battle royale’s main focus is on survival and being the last person standing. Brute force is not always the solution as there Is always more elegant and innovative ways to achieve victory. Beating nearly a hundred opponents to victory by any means is a rewarding experience in itself.

This genre will likely evolve and morph in years to come as game developers find new and interesting ways to entice players into this unique genre.
