What is a Multiplayer Battle Royale?
Though the genre has existed for a long time, it recently gained huge prominence due to the popularity of games like PUBG and Fortnite. Battle Royale games are survival games first, so the usual aspects of survival games like exploration, hunting, and scavenging are present. But they also incorporate a Last Man Standing feature, which means you must be the last player around to win the game.
Gamers, not developers, initially created battle Royale games. Gamers modded survival games so that it won’t end until only one player remains. Today, it has become a genre in its own right and has some big names under it.
