Fortnite is one of the world’s most popular games, and it’s simple to see why. The player base is vast, the players receive regular content updates, which helped define the genre of battle royale. While the onslaught of new content will keep you from getting bored, you need a break sometimes. If too many times you’ve had your builds ruined by a Choppa, or you’re tired of seeing the dance “Take the L” after getting beaten, it may be time to try a new game, if only for a bit.
We have rounded up the best games like Fortnite, paying close attention to the format of the battle royale and the mechanics of building found in Fortnite. Similar games scratch the same itch, but differently, even though Fortnite is a somewhat unique game.
Realm Royale (Switch, Xbox One, PS4, PC)
Realm Royale, a battle royale with a similar art style, is an identical title that will scratch that itch of Fortnite. A spin-off of the hero shooter Paladins: Champions of the Realm, this game incorporates modern shooter and fantasy elements into an action-packed death war. Similar to other BRs out there, the gameplay is identical, but there are a few surprises. When jumping into a game, players have to choose between one of 5 specialized classes: hunter, warrior, assassin, engineer, or mage. Although the game has a handful of weapons, players can fight it out with long swords, crossbows, and staff as well. There are many fights around Forges, workshops scattered all over the map that allows players to break down unwanted objects and create more potent weapons.
