Spellbreak combines magic and battle royale gameplay together as you cast spells to destroy the competition. It is free to play and involves a lot of multitasking as you fly around and use your various abilities.

You have to work as a team to take down the competition, and loot the various areas along the way. It is a faster-paced game than Fortnite and will keep you on your toes, but Spellbreak also leads to epic end-game battles you won’t ever forget.

9 Call of Duty: Warzone

Call of Duty: Warzone is free and it sends you into a match with one to three of your friends. It is realistic in terms of weapons and terrain, and it requires a bit of patience in order to pull off a win.

Warzone also has some pretty amazing operator skins if a cool look is what you are after, even if they may not be as exciting as those in Fortnite. Drive, fly, or run your way to victory as you set your own custom loadout to take down any opponents.

8 Ring Of Elysium


This game is focused on natural disasters, and the amazing graphics really help bring it to life. There are things like gliders, grappling hooks, and motorbikes that you can use to make your way across the map, as well as several useful tactical abilities.

Ring of Elysium separates itself from other battle royale games as your goal isn’t to kill everyone else, rather, it is to board the helicopter.

7 Darwin Project

If you were looking for a more fantasy-based game with graphics similar to those of Fortnite, then this is your game. Darwin Project has a post-apocalyptic focus, which its fans love, and it pits you against nine other players to survive the winter weather and kill your opponents.

Darwin Project is basically the Hunger Games of the gaming world as spectators can influence who wins by casting votes and the show director dictates what happens within the arena. The game is free to play and only the strong survive as they build tools and track down opponents.

6 Rules Of Survival

Rules of Survival

Rules of Survival is massive as it sends 300 players into a single arena, and it only costs $2.99 on Steam. The goal is to be the last one alive and teams of up to five players at a time can be formed. Weapons are scattered across the landscape and vehicles are available to help you avoid the other players who are out to score a kill.

5 Apex Legends

Some believe that Apex Legends is dying a slow death, but others are not quite done with it. There is a list of characters to choose from who each come with their own special abilities, which is where strategy comes into play.

You will jump into a match with two other teammates and the futuristic vibe Apex Legends gives off is unlike anything available in the battle royale genre.

4 Knives Out


Knives Out is free-to-play and places people on teams with four other players. Each match has up to 100 competitors and there are plenty of weapons to choose from.

3 PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds

Most people have probably heard of PUBG if you have played Fortnite, as these two games have been competing for years. PUBG costs $29.99 and will place you against 99 other players in a match. Every person dreams of making it to the end so they can have their own Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.

PUBG is available on multiple platforms, including mobile devices and Google Stadia.

2 Population: One

If you want to stay with the battle royale genre but want to branch into VR, then try out Population: One. You will need to climb, fly, and build your way to victory, and it can even be played with a group of friends.

Population: One’s biggest proponent is its vertical combat system that is singular to AR systems. It has also enabled crossplay among several devices.

1 Rust

Rust combines survival with battle royale as it drops you into a map where you must build a base and gather supplies, including weapons, in order to survive. You will not only face physical challenges, but you will have to protect yourself from any nearby opponents.

It is possible to create alliances with opponents and take other enemy bases by storm, which adds a whole new level of fun.
