Fortnite took everything from PUBG and made it infinitely better, argues Rossko of FingerGuns.
It runs at locked frames.
It should. It looks like team fortress 2 so it isnt like it's stressing hardware.
Lol, let's not pretend that PUBG is a great looking game either.
PUBG looks like PS2 games. It should run at 120fps.
^agreed but between the two, the cartoon style is easier to process as opposed to trying to be detailed like PUBG. They should prioritize frame rate over visual style for both in order to get a nice solid performance and fun gameplay experience.
I actually like it better that PUBG. You can do way more in Fortnite
Well, artstyle doesn't really have anything to do with how much power is required to run the game.
"PUBG looks like PS2 games. It should run at 120fps." you had a different PS2 than I have, clearly.
are you actually stupid lool...?
Because it runs well and isn't glitchy!
I still have more fun with PUBG
100% personally hate fortnite, specifically hate the building, ruins it for me, if they remove the building, I would probably give it another try.
I agree. Fortnite is way more polished but it's also boring. The base building also feels like a really superfluous mechanic that doesn't have its place in the battle royale mode
Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Friday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 5 weeks past. I began this 6-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $85 per hour.. Go this web and start your work.. Good luck.... http://4u.fyi/4k9
And it’s finished and polish.
It literally isn't finished, and Epic are not based out of Poland. Maybe you are confusing Fortnite with The Witcher 3? Easily done.
Brilliant game more polished and more content to come.
Meh, lack of equipment and empty environments isnt really more polished.
The environments are constantly getting upgrades and new equipment is getting added regularly. But like others have said - it runs better.
"Rules of Survival" on iPhone runs better than PUBG
WAY BETTER! I was actually surprised by this. Especially when I saw PUBG on mobile in a preview. Whats the point when RoS runs WAY better. As for Fortnite, I am not a fan. I like it, but I am not a fan of all the building and demolition. Too many distractions, less tactical feel. I'm a fan of PUBG's realism.
depends on hardware lol, also latest benchmarks show the iphone 8 beating the macbook pro in cpu benchmarks.
Not only is it far more polished, on both console and PC, it's just more fun IMO. Plus it's free. There's just no comparison with regard to value proposition.
I personally prefer Fortnite, but it's a shame to see PUBG getting dragged through the mud by people that base their opinion soley on which console the game is available on. PUBG is slower and more tense, with more emphasis on strategic positioning and much more emphasis on building interiors that really changes the dynamic of a firefight for the better. Fortnite is more accessible (despite the added complexity of the building and destruction), but the act of shooting another player is far more satisfying on PUBG. I also have no problem running PUBG at 4k with good settings. I only took up PUBG when it got the 1.0 release, and I was genuinely surprised by how competent the graphics and performance are because I had bought into the FUD round here.
You should write a letter to the 3+ million ACTIVE X1 players on PUBG and remind them the game "isn't fun." PUBG needs work, but is far from the "turd" PS4 gamers wish it to be.
If crossplay platform were allowed for this game, it would destroy PUBG and send it to the abyss.
Fortnight is just running away from PUBG gameplay wise and word is getting out how much better it is. I like PUBG, fundamentally, but its relative appeal is wearing off fast. PUBG still looks and feels like an elaborate fan mod. Fortnight looks and feels like a professionally coded game, and the gameplay is obviously deeper with the building aspects.
Building and gameplay are fun
And it pushes for a higher skilled game aswell with a really long learning curve.. Sorry it's gotta be said cause people judge it too quick by the graphics. One of the reasons I love it.
Having played both I can’t for the life of me figure out PUBGs popularity. Oh wait, I can: twitch streamers overhyping garbage again.
And having played both, I prefer PUBG. Fortnight is great, it's fun, runs almost perfect and the shooting is easier but in a Halo kind of way (not a bad thing), Faster to jump in and have fun. PUBG is just more intense for me, I think that is why I like it so much. I don't get the "Fun Factor" from PUBG like I do Fortnight BUT I get this anxious crazy intense feeling from PUBG that not many games have given me, the last time I had that feeling was playing Battlefield 4 with 64 players for the first time.
I once said the same thing about Minecraft, but after I started looking at it more logically, I could see it's addictive nature being very appealing. Same as with Angry Birds or Candy Crush. Games which just became exponentially more popular as more people were talking about it. I feel that PUBG right now is at that pinnacle of everyone is talking about it, and the Xbox announcement only sent that into overdrive, because before then, console gamers weren't talking about it, and I think most hadn't even heard of it. Whether that appeal is lasting really depends on if the devs manage to fix the issues, and hopefully create more content to keep it fresh. It's not unheard of of something really popular to simply drop in popularity when the next big thing comes along....or they simply go back to things which they liked before.
It runs well and has a lot more strategic plays than pubg.
I take it you havent played PUBG then lol
The game is free so naturally it's gonna have more players. Let's compare money made between PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale and you will find that PUBG is blowing it out of the water. Its not a big featbor something to brag about that your free game has lots of players.
😁 😉... Wait 🤔 for realz?? 😳 😂
so yuo are complaingin that people are bragging about how a Free to play game has more players than a paid one, but then go one to say that we should be comparing the money earned from the game.... so are we goign to include the iniital cost of the game? because remember, fortnite on its own cost people money and that allows people to play BR as well. or are we just going to include MTs?
Fair point, It also makes me wonder where PUBG's money is going?
This is just my op so hopefully I dont get roasted but personally don't see what the craze is about..walk around 30 mins just to find someone to kill and another 30 for a new game to start. Very unrealistic shooter the whole building walls in a split second before the enemy kills you and what not lol have never played pubg but if it's like that I prob won't like it either. I'll stick to the battlefield franchise looking forward for the new one 2018.
I love PUBG, even with it's current issues. No, it's not perfect, but I've had better moments on PUB then I have on fortnite. I'm not saying fortnite isn't fun either, I enjoy the having the vehicles, and the FPS servers. PUB adds that extra stress of surviving in first person. People aren't just sitting on corners using their cams to see you a mile away. I also feel like fortnite isn't what it was when I bought the game, because of the BR added to Fortnite, the main game isn't even talked about anymore. I feel like those of us who bought the game for $40+ bucks funded the real game of BR, then made it free to everyone. At least PUBG hasn't strayed from what it is, or lied to get us to buy it. If PUBG was a BR only when you bought it, then they said, "it's going to be free soon, with a single player/coop campaign being our main focus from here on out" you wouldn't be happy either.
In all fairness to Epic though, they told those of us that paid for Early Access that it would go free to play within several months. We (me to) were to impatient to wait. People that just play it for free don't have access to Save The World mode either so we got our moneys worth. I like PUBG better as an idea, but Fortnite is well executed where PUBG feels like a proof of concept. If you could go into FPP,equip attachments, and drive vehicles in Fortnite hardly anyone would play PUBG. My 9 year old son asked me why it is so ugly when I was playing today, and all I could say was the people who made it don't know how to make it look any better. Also, on Xbox One it has some of the worst controls and aiming that I've ever seen.
I know they told us it was going free, but at that time free meant the "Save the World" campaign. It wasn't going free for BR, now that it's taken off, BE gets all the focus. I still like the real world applications of the weapons and gear in PUB, and the graphics debate is always going to be there, but I don't play games because they're visually striking to look at, I play them for what they are, the game. Yes, graphics can make a great game better, but they don't take away from the core. On PC you can make it look great if your PC can do it. The console though is still in preview, and it's getting updated weekly. People are all about right now though, and right now I get why people are saying FBR is more enjoyable for them. I'm just asking people to wait for the finished product, it says before you buy it, that the game is unfinished. It's that support that's going to make it the game we all want. Oh and I don't know if you've seen the recent update, but they've added a new control scheme for better ADS control. It's helped out a lot. I understand your opinion though, and I respect that.
I agree we need to see how PUBG shapes out in Its final state before we judge. Yeah, I've been playing with control preset B since the patch, but it still feels off. I do well it just still feels cluncky but like you said its not finished so we'll just have to wait and see. I wish its controls and aiming were more like Rainbow Six Siege.
Oh man siege controls on PUB lol. That'd be awesome. The only thing that BUGS me about PUB is each update resets my sensitivity controls. It is still a bit clunky though. I keep learning new things about the controls too. Like when you pull out a grenade and get the arc to show up before a throw, pressing left trigger turns it into a lob, instead of a toss, and pressing left bumper pulls the pin for a faster detonation. The biggest one I just found out on Sunday, is that while you're running, you can hold right bumper and look around in 360° while still running forward. It's changed how I approach any situation. I was very frustrated with the controls until I started to understand why they are the way they are.
Ehh, Fortnite is the Call of Duty of battle royal games. Fast paced, arcadey, and a small skill gap. Even if PUBG runs and looks worse Fortnite still doesn't touch the thrill you get when dropping Pochinki and racing to find a gun before the 20+ other people who land there or the tactical gameplay of playing in squads. It's basically the BF vs CoD argument. I prefer BF.
BF and COD are both polished games were as PUBG isn't.I've played both on console for dozens of hours, and the only reason that PUBG is more intense is because it feels like you have to fight the game as well as other players. The horrid controls, bad aiming, and constant rubber banding keep you on edge because you hope it doesn't get you killed. Thats not good game design. Maybe if better devs made it you'd be right, but as of right now Fortnite is the better game. Fortnite is easier, not because PUBG is intentionally designed to be hard, but because Fortnite is designed better period. Just get on youtube most PUBG videos are WTF moments because the game so often glitches....That doesn't sound like BFvsCOD to me at all. Unless PUBG is COD in your illustration.
That's why in 2018, it's a lil reckless to throw money at any game before checking out some player feedback, vid previews, etc.! Single player looks like a treehouse sim with a lame eternal horde mode (haven't seen much, just IMO!). They wanted $ for that but free later this year!? Doesn't make sense to drop cash now, Epic don't need your money to finish the game, plus they'll want more from microtransactions... Haven't even bought season pass or spent a dime yet, FT:BR is great though! If I threw money at every kickstarter n major developer to finish their game or make it not suck, I'd be a bit upset too, though... SMH... FT Campaign was coming regardless, for free no less, not many were interested, so it seems like they tacked on BR to draw interest... N you still threw $ at campaign to play it early!? SMH...
I like Fortnite better because it feels like a polished experience, but I 100% agree with you vj27. I literally drop into the Ruins every time just because I fear people far more in PUBG than in Fortnite.
I actually want my money back on the console version of PUBG! I personally think it’s borderline unplayable.
If you're talking about the controls, I had lots of trouble with aiming until this last patch where they added the aim acceleration slider option. Try turning it all the way down. It made the game so much better to me. Also, my framerate has been really consistent lately (knock on wood) on my Scorpio. Haven't had a chance to try it on the og one yet
What I'm reading from all these comments is that fortnite is better largely due to PUBG running like crap. That's pretty stupid. Played both, to me fornites building is not needed at all. It defeats the purpose of the circle closing in on people in the first place.
Whoa this game is free? I just downloaded it now
Good article. Just one note (possibly to all people trying to write articles): it's = abbreviation of it is. Example: "The game world is massive; it's filled with trees and wild animals." its = possessive. Example: "The game world is massive; its trees and wild animals are numerous."
Pubg is superior in literally every conceivable way. More depth, more strategy, better graphics (pc), more intense, more thrilling. I think most of the naysayers here just haven't played it. Sorry guys but 30 million people have purchased it and that figure will hit 40+ once it hits ps4. I feel like I need no other game right now. Pubg just gives me everything I need. That's not to say fortnite is bad, it's great but just not as good I'm afraid. Fortnite is fun but seems aimed more towards kids. Which is fine but.. Ya know...
PUBG runs perfectly fine on PC only reason N4G hates on the game so much is because its console exclusive. 30MILLION!
Yeah, I am getting a strong sense of Sony fanboys championing Fortnight because of PUBG's console exclusivity. Wait, I thought they all had capable pc's, er wait, capable $500 pc's that are better than Xbox One X.
O dude you made my night! Thanks!
I assumed pubg must be something special but apparently it's arguable whether it's better or worse than fortnight? Doesn't bode well.
only on n4g
It's not the most played game on Steam for no reason. I'm not saying number of players means a game is better than the others but when a game has over 4 times the concurrent players as the next game on the Steam list it must be doing something right for a lot of people. I understand this site has a war to fight though so if you want balanced opinions on Fortnite vs PUBG it might be better looking at a PC only forum.
My only complaint is that there is no vehicles and I die because I suck at building shit. I can make it to the top 10, but there is always someone who can build a fortress in 30 seconds.
...because it’s on the correct platform. ;)
How can u even compare the 2 when pubg goes for realisim while the other is a cartoony arcadish style fantasy shooter..u can build ramps to the sky in 30 secs while beein shot at lol don't get the appeal and it has the player base it has because its f2p but if people enjoys it kudos.
How is epic making money off of Fortnite if it is free?
No way as good a pubg, the tension isnt there. Plus pugb has had 3 updates since lauch and is now amazing
I haven't played PUBG as I'm a PS4/Mac gamer, but I've played Fortnite BR and it sucks so bad. I've tried so many times to like it, but it just SUCKS. The graphic style, the framerate, the sound effects/music (or lack of), the movement mechanics, the whole "building" idea which is completely unsuitable, the menus/microtransactions. The whole thing just sucks, well, except the 'Battle Royale' gamemode concept which is flat out borrowed anyway.
It's free which is a big factor, I wouldn't be stupid enough to pay full retail considering it's basic. It's definitely worth a try though, best off going solo because squads team kill or abandon each other.
well maybe from the perspective of a console only gamer, pubg will probably fade away on console but its still going strong on pc.
I haven't played Fortnite, but PUBG is fun.
I much prefer PUBG gunplay, sound,and graphics. Also like that I only have to worry about survival, not
