The best battle royale games on PC

PCGamesN

Whether you’re after a serious shootout or wacky mechanics, there’s a battle royale game out there for everyone - here we present the best of this blockbuster genre.

APEX LEGENDS

Apex Legends combines the dystopian charm of Titanfall’s mech-ravaged world with intense firefights, unique hero abilities, and fast-paced movement as you swing, slide, and sprint across the map.

Respawn Entertainment’s innovative ping system and revive mechanic make this the friendliest battle royale around. No mic? No problem. And if your friends get wiped early on you’ll have plenty of chances to act the hero and revive them both.

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS

PUBG was the first battle royale game many of us played - and it exemplifies the genre in its purest form, with a focus on tactical rotations, skilful gunplay, and squad communication.

It’s one of the most realistic, challenging battle royale games out there, and with regular updates and new maps it’ll remain a must-play for BR fans.

FORTNITE

Fortnite is one of the most popular games ever made, thanks to its colourful and poppy visuals, simple shooting mechanics, and frequently updated maps, skins, and challenges.

Lurking beneath its bright and welcoming exterior is a building system so powerful that a skilled player can easily take on several opponents at once.

CALL OF DUTY: WARZONE

Warzone has re-invigorated the standard battle royale formula with incredibly simple looting and a focus on risk taking and aggression.

When you die, you can earn a second chance at victory by winning a 1v1 duel in the Gulag. You can collect cash and spend it on respawning teammates or killstreaks at Buy Stations, and call in premade loadouts.

FALL GUYS

No guns, blood, or guts in sight - all you need to be the last one standing in Fall Guys is precise control of your wobbly jelly bean as you scramble over shiny plastic obstacles.

You’ll play through a series of assault courses straight out of a gameshow, each round eliminating a batch of beans until a victor is crowned.

HYPER SCAPE

Ubisoft has finally entered the battle royale genre with a Tron-inspired world, some exciting Twitch integration, and ridiculously fast-paced gameplay.

With a map that’s entirely urban, you can expect very little downtime as you battle in city streets and apartment buildings, with double-jumping and auto-mantling encouraging plenty of vertical play.
