    Short sad story

  18. Ultimate Powa says:

    The biggest reason Epic Games is at fault for the Battle Royal mode in Fortnite is a little deeper than “Fortnite copied PubG!”
    Bluehole purchased the license to use the Unreal engine from Epic Games, and as a part of that purchase, Epic Games assisted Bluehole to get PubG working properly.
    That is where Epic Games first got the idea for implementing Battle Royal into Fortnite.
    Well, in the contract, Epic Games was not suppose to make anything that would compete with the game they helped Bluehole on, such as PubG.

    Usually, I’m against the company making the copyright claim because they are so commonly overreaching.
    With the Fortnite Vs PubG case, there is a lot more than beats the eye.
    Fortnite was not only a fairly close copy, but also released during PubG’s sweet period to compete with PubG, harming the sales of a company Epic Games was contracted with.

      Ultimate Powa but battle royale is only a mode in fortnite, the focus between two games essentially makes them of two distinct genre, it doesn’t matter fornite started their battle royale mode. What matters is what is allowed or not. Bollywood show that content can be as lazy and similar to another content as long as they are still distinguishable from one and another.

    • Caleb Carrigan says:

      Except for the fact that pubg doesn’t even remotely work properly even now. Let’s face it, pubg is just salty of fortnite’s success, and if they win this copyright lawsuit (which could very well happen because of koreas shitty copyright laws), it could have serious implications in the future of gaming.

    • Purpleskull 7548 says:

      Ultimate Powa nice info man but just got to say Fortnite also added “save the world” Epic Games threw this game mode into Fortnite hoping that no one will call them out on “copying PUBG” (I still like Fortnite Better though) I know this info is helping Bluehole but I don’t know much about PUBG sorry Fortnite fans

    • TheMajorStranger says:

      No they didn’t. the first battle royale as it is now was an ArmA III mod made by PlayerUnknown, the same guy behind PLAYERUNKNOWN BATTLEGROUND

    • Flaming Flamingo says:

      When ur a hardcore Fornite fan

  19. SoloBeans says:

    Yup, cause if you make a battle royale you get sued

  20. Aracelia Games says:

    I think the first Battle Royale I have played is The Culling which no one seems to remember anymore. But yeah, it started all this Hunger Games style of gameplay. (At least in my opinion) Bluehole is so desperate to kill Fortnite’s popularity, it’s not even funny anymore.
