Hey guys! Welcome back to Top 10 Gaming, I’m Ron McKenzie-Lefurgey. Fortnite is a super popular game. But as we’ve seen with past games, like PubG and DayZ, these games often have a way of dying out when new games come along. So let’s go over some other battle royale games that might just take some players away from the game. If you enjoy this video, let us know by throwing us a thumbs up down below. And if you want more, check out our video on the Top 10 Inappropriate Pokemon! But before you do that, get ready, it’s time for the Top 10 Alternate Games to Fortnite Coming Out in 2018! Number 10: Mavericks: Proving Ground. No, this isn’t a game made by Logan Paul, thank goodness. This game by Automaton is largely seen as the most ambitious battle royale yet. It plans to have a 12 by 12 KILOMETRE world, with FOUR HUNDRED players. Holy cow. There isn’t much to see yet, but it looks like it might be somewhat different from other battle royale games, with more character progression.
Looks neat. Number 9: Survival Games. This game by Studios is currently in early access, but it’s a great option for more casual players. Or Minecraft fans. Why? Because it’s basically Minecraft Battle Royale. You can play matches up to 64 players in a zombie survival mode or an arena mode. All that is to say that it’s basically Fortnite Minecraft. Number 8: Crazy Justice. Crazy Justice is a lot more like Fortnite than other games on this list, with the colours, and the 3rd person, and the silliness, and the construction system… But it’s not totally the same. It has a definite steampunk look, plus it has a card system similar to Battlefront 2, which allows players to customize themselves with passive and active abilities. Cool music too. Number 7: Radical Heights. Radical Heights is a new battle royale game by Boss Key Productions. As the name would suggest, it’s super 80s, with all sorts of crazy colours, but there’s an extreme sports aspect of it that’s quite unique.
One cool feature is that you can deposit money in the bank in-game, and use the money in future games. Plus, on top of trying to kill and not be killed, there’s a real extreme sports aspect, allowing players to ride BMX bikes. This badboy’s already on early access on steam, so head over there if it looks intriguing! Number 6: Mini Battlegrounds. This is another early access game, by IOA Games, that takes the whole battle royale thing wayyyyyyyy casual. It’s a super cartoonish, top-down game that’s easy to pick up, but apparently difficult to master. You play a small character with a giant head, and you just go around bopping people. The graphics are so simple it’s kinda difficult to take too seriously, which can be pretty nice for gamers for whom raging is an issue.
Number 5: Paladins: Realm Royale. Paladins is a free to play game by Hi-Rez Studios that’s launching very soon, maybe it’ll even be launched by the time this goes live. I love Smite, so my hopes are pretty high for Hi-Rez Studios, and this game looks pretty great. You have two weapon slots, with infinite ammo, as well as two ability slots, with abilities ranging from invisibility, to blinking, to forcefields.
You can also break down weapons you find into shards, and if you bring them to a forge you can forge a legendary weapon. Which is pretty sick. Number 4: Stand Out: VR Battle Royale. As you probably guessed based on the title, this Battle Royale is made for Virtual Reality, which is pretty darn huge. Most of the rest is quite similar to PUBG, but the VR changes it drastically. Obviously, it will still be limited by the VR technology, so it won’t be as streamlined or responsive as a regular game, but if you’re a fan of VR it looks wicked.
Plus they’ve worked hard to improve the locomotion system and collision in the game. It’ll be released this year, but it’s currently in early access, so if you have VR technology, you can check it out now on Steam. Number 3: Maelstrom. Oh man. This one’s totally unique. Maelstrom is a fantasy naval warfare game by Gunpowder Games that will be released on Steam in 2018. It’s battle royale with ships, which is really neat, but it gets cooler. Not only are you going against other players, you can take out NPC ships and even come across giant sea creatures.
I’m not sure if this will actually overtake Fortnite since it seems kinda niche, but it looks like such a blast. Give it a try, it’s early access on steam. I’ll probably grab it on sale. Number 2: Egress. Egress looks right up my alley. It will apparently involve souls-like combat, allowing you to pick a hero with unique abilities. This means it’ll be focused on intricate melee combat, combined with the hero abilities. The lore also seems really interesting, since it’ll be a combination of the Victorian era, Lovecraft’s mythology, and Retrowave. It’s basically the Chivalry of Battle Royales, and then some, and considering how much I love Chivalry, I think this one might be the game that gets me.
Number 1: Darwin Project. This new game from Scavengers Studio is for PC and Xbox. While it has a definite fortnite feel with the destructible environments and similar graphics, it’s different in that it’s basically The Hunger Games. Which is pretty sweet. It’s a dystopian future where an Ice Age is approaching, so they decide to stick 10 people in an area and make them fight to the death. The coolest part? One player acts as the show director, who can see everything, talk to the players, and control the game using nukes, gravity storms, even healing people. THAT aspect will make it super popular. Plus it’s free! Check it out now on Steam. Looks awesome. That’s it for today! Hope you guys enjoyed, if you did please smack that thumbs up button and subscribe to Top 10 Gaming for more videos!
