A Battle Royale game is a video game genre that blends the survival, exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with last-man-standing gameplay.

One of the benefits of playing these Battle Royale games is making money while competing against other players. Historically the biggest esport in terms of tournament prize pools was Valve’s “Dota 2” game, which paid out about $38 million in total prize money in 2017, according to E-sports Earnings.

The top Battle Royale games right now according to trustedreviews.com/best/battle-royale-games, are Fortnite, Apex Legends, Realm Royale and Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds. All of these are online games, meaning that you can play with people you know, or you can play with people online that you have never met.

Cade Onder, editor-in-chief of GameZone, recently wrote about the upcoming Battle Royale game Apex Legend: “Apex has 60 players and you’re forced into squads of three.” Two new features, that no other Battle Royale game has offered, is communicating with other players through the game’s characters, and automatically transferring attachments to new guns you pick up.

Many MC students participate in these games.  Daequan Cain ’20 commente that “I love and hate the game,” but overall, admitted that “it’s a fun game to play with my friends.” Lance Swain ’20, who is fairly new to the game, “wants to get better at it” so he can ‘show off his skills” in front of his friends.

Apex has many reviews from top companies like IGN, PC gamer and Metacritic. IGN rated it an 9/10, PC gamer rated it 93 % and Meacrtic rated it 83%.
