I Tried and Quite Enjoyed the Battle Royale mode of, "Fortnite," Recently!
How does a match of Battle Royale work in, "Fortnite?" Well, you jump out of a flying bus that goes over the island, deploy your glider to land safely, and proceed to gather weapons, shields, health kits, and resources so you can build walls and stairs to keep yourself extra protected. In the meantime the other 99 players in the match do this too and slowly the map shrinks as more folk are wiped out by everyone else (or in some cases accidentally running of a cliff and falling to their death). It is a simple idea that works wonderfully in execution, as everyone either tries to gun each other down, hide as long as possible and let the other players whittle each other down, or some mixture of strategies. Plus, there is a mode where you can have a small team and that can result in some wacky matches also.
"Fortnite," and its Battle Royale mode is fun, fast, and free--three things I seek-out nowadays when it comes to my video-games. Having played it I can now easily see why the game has become such a phenomenon--it's a rollicking good time, after all! I'd encourage anyone who enjoys fun games to try it out as all you need is a device capable of playing it (PS4, Xbox One, PC, or even mobile phones now) and an internet connection. Give it a shot and you'll most likely love it!
