Everything is destructible in Fortnite’s PUBG “homage”, which is both the most amazing thing and the worst thing, depending whether you’re on the receiving end.
I’ll admit, the building aspect also adds a neat twist to the battle royal format, and I’ve seen aggressive streamers make really clever use of it in battle.
Overall, though, I’m still not convinced I would choose to play Fortnite over PUBG on a regular basis. I think I prefer “simulation” over “arcade” for this sort of game (also the reason I never got into King of the Kill). But Fortnite’s take on the mode is better than I expected, and despite actually removing a lot of your safety, ends up feeling less… tense? As a result of the more stylized tone of the game.
Have you given Fortnite’s new mode a try? Do you prefer it to PUBG? Are you worried that battle royale is our new DayZ/survival sim, and we’re about to be inundated with every game under the sun jumping on the bandwagon?
