Battle royale games like Fortnite, Warzone, and Apex Legends are still very popular—but gamers just might be starting to lose interest.
I'm still heavily invested in Apex Legends. However it's the only BR I play
Im in the same boat as you I only play apex
Something about Apex isn't it. The guns, the legends themselves, their ultimates, and the movement is just so much fun. And its free..
most battle royal games are free. i think PUBG is the only paid one.
Apex is the only BR I play as well. I was playing a ridiculous amount for the first 7 seasons. This season not as much. I really miss World's Edge. Hoping Season 9 legend will be better than Fuse and that World's Edge is back in rotation.
No. I never liked them but it’s the kind of mindless shit most gamers enjoy. The replay value I mean, the grind.
Yeah I could never understand spending a large chunk of time grinding resources only to have to battle it out with 100 others likely die and do it all again which can take 20 to 45 minutes a match.
I'm not a huge BR player, but it's more fun with friends (like most mp games.) We also tend to switch to other modes to shake it up.
We are all guilty of the grind in some form. I just never got into that mode. I’d much rather play a co-op game like left 4 dead or fighting games with my friends. I haven’t truly enjoyed a team based shooter since gears 2 lol.
In COD Warzone you can get your loadout in a matter of minutes and the only thing you need in terms of floor loot is just one good gun that you can find in seconds. Then you have Gulag and your team keep can keep reviving you as long as they have the money. I'm not saying Warzone is better than PUBG and Apex, just that it eliminates some of the BR grind and ultimately frustration.
Repetitive and dull for me. Not enough there to justify an entire game in its own right...more a multiplayer mode to bolt onto an actual game.
I dont think so. Battle Royale games got their market.
I just can't get into'em anymore, no character progression i.e. unlocks/customizations. Apex is a good shooter, but the lootboxes and developers calling the playerbase freeloaders just oozed too much arrogance for my liking.
Pretty sure all the freeloaders are what made their games popular in the first place. If they didn't want freeloaders, they shouldn't have made their game free to play
My battle royal fatigue kicked in in 2017 after i got my first W in fortnite when it was new on ps4.^^ That was the last time i played it and never felt the urge to play any battle royal since then.
It arrived 2+ years ago
IMHO Battle Royal should be its own thing/game. I’m tired of always seeing major games that have been around for years trying to implement it as a game mode. Games like PUBG and APEX are here to stay but not everyone multiplayer game needs BR...cough bf6.. cough.
It arrived for me a month after Fornite released.
I hope so. I never cared to play any of them. It's just not something for me to grind every match and then die and start the grind again. At least in regular games the grind continues and makes sense.
They still make a ton of money so i doubt any change is going to happen. It's fine if it stays popular though if it enables Epic to invest in Remedy and Fumito Ueda's teams games or Activision to occasionally invest in something like Sekiro.
I’m also heavily invested in Apex Legends, coming from PUBG it’s super fun to play.
I wish it was the ultimate team and card collection game modes that would die out. When you consider how long gambling has been around for, I do not see it happening sadly.
