The two games we are going to talk
about today seem to be in the media almost daily.
Both are survival games and take inspiration
from the Japanese dystopian thriller movie, Battle Royale.
Basically, as the saying goes,
it ’ s a fight to the death.
There are other kinds
of game play, such as playing in teams,
and a 50/50 mode that was released by Fortnite Battle Royale on occasions.
In that case,players are asked to work together, rather
than just exterminate everything they see.
Both games have been received well by critics and players alike,
and have garnered millions of fans in quite a short space of time.
But which is better?
That ’ s what we ’ ll find out today,
in this episode of the Infographics Show,
Fortnite Battle Royale vs. PlayerUnknown’sBattlegrounds.
We’ll start with Fortnite’s Battle Royalemode.
它公布于2017年 由Epic Game和People Can Fly开发
Released in 2017, it was developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly.
It’s availableon numerous platforms, and has been compared to Minecraft,
except for the element of having to survive and kill lots of zombie-like things.
Players are dropped into an unforgiving environment,
a planet depleted of most of its population.
Players don ’ t start with much in terms of weapons,
but from there they go out and scavenge,
and attempt to be the last man standing.
In its concept, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegroundsisn’t much different.
Also released in 2017,
and also available across various platforms,it’s a race to survive.
Created by PUBG Corporation,
it was actually released before Fortnite Battle Royale,
so it can take some kudos for that.
Again,players are droppedinto an unforgiving environment
and must scavenge for things that will help them survive.
It’sanother last man standing scenario,
with this kind of game now being hailed as the genre of the day.
While the games are similar in concept,
they are quite different in how they look.
《绝地求生》更加逼真 更加残酷 认为军力至上
PUBG has been called more realistic looking,moregritty and militaristic.
Fortnite Battle Royale is a lot more fantasy-esque and looks much more like an arcade game.
It’s just a matter of what look you prefer.
As for the maps,new ones keep being released.
At time of writing,
it was reported that PUBG will get its third in-game map sometime in early summer.
As for Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 2,
that is about to finish as we write this.
Apparently, the next theme will be space, but you will know by now.
PUBG has bigger maps,
but as some players point out, that’s not alwaysa good thing.
Having to traverse large tracts of land brings attention to you,
which someplayers don’t like.
PUBG has been called a game
in which you have to use tactics more and position yourself better,
while Battle Royale has been called absolute chaos.
Again,it’s a matter of taste as to which environment you prefer.
Now,let ’ s take a look at at some numbers:
PUBG has sold more than 30 million copies
on Steam and a further four million copiesfor Xbox One.
It’s thought, in all, it’s made about $712 million.
Fortnite ’ s Battle Royale mode had over 10 million users
within two weeks of its release.
It ’ s also said that this game just topped PUBG
In terms of concurrent players,
其中 有340万人玩《堡垒之夜》 320万人玩《绝地求生》
that was 3.4 million for Battle Royale and 3.2million for PUBG.
This might have something to do with cost.
PUBG costs $29.99 for XboxOne and PC.
Battle Royale’s season three pass
can be paid for with game credits you already earned,
or you can just pay 10 bucks.
Another thing to mention is that one of PUBG ’ s biggest markets is China,
and Battle Royale isn’t even available in China yet.
In termsof growth, it looks like Battle Royale is winning,
although this has led to problemswith its servers.
That said, people have complained about servers for both games.
But what do the critics think?
Both games have gained lots of accolades,
with PUBG winning many Game of the Year titles.
Battle Royale hasn ’ t garnered anything close to the same attention,
but it came out later and time will tell.
PUBG got a score of 85 on Metacritic, which aggregates many scores.
It was also called
by some “ The best multi-player game ever. ” Fortnite scored 74,
but there is no separate score for the Battle Royalemode.
Yes,people said it is fun,
but it didn’t receive the same kind of superlatives as PUBGdid.
But things might be changing.
橄榄球明星J J Watt在推特上发布过一次投票
NFL Star J J Watt posted a poll on Twitter
in 2018 asking which game was the best and 45,341people responded.
The poll ended with 74 percent of people voting for Fortnite and 26 percent voting for PUBG.
Again,this was not just addressed to the Battle Royale mode for Fortnite.
The various Reddit threads about the topic didn ’ t show such a difference,
with some people saying they preferred PUBG and otherspreferring Battle Royale.
So,which game do you think is the best andwhy?
Let us know in the comments.
