Will There Be Mobile Battle Royale Games Soon?

Évaluez cet Article The new battle royale genre has taken the gaming world by storm. However, there are still no games like it in mobile platforms, so will we see one soon? Apps To Play - Will There Be Mobile Battle Royale Games Soon?

Battle royale is an interesting gaming concept popularized by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). Unfortunately, its development has been pretty slow and is only available on Steam. Its absence on the consoles was taken advantage by Epic Games’ Fortnite Battle Royale, whose player-base spiked up to 10 million within two weeks of its release. PC and console gamers are happy campers with both games filling the void on both platforms.

Unfortunately, mobile gamers still have the short end of the stick. There still isn’t a decent BR game on the platform, though there are PUBG knockoffs currently in the market. Of course, we can safely say that some games are in the works, hoping to cash in on the genre’s popularity. With that said, yes, we can expect BR games to be on mobile, but what should we expect? Here are some things that will likely happen:

Dumbed Down Visual Experience


Games like Fortnite BR use a building mechanic to spice things up


PUBG and Fortnite Battle Royale need heavy-duty hardware to run smoothly. Possible mobile BR games don’t have the luxury of advanced, 8 GB RAM and advanced graphics cards. It’s likely that they’ll have a dumbed down experience, with graphics that look like the games were made five years ago. But hey, graphics don’t make the gameplay, so it’s not as if you won’t end up enjoying it.

Fewer Than a Hundred


The general idea of BR is simple: 100 players are dropped into an island where they then engage in an all out affair to survive. Loot the buildings for guns and weapons, and position themselves nearer so they can escape the ever-dwindling playing area due to the storm. We can expect something similar in mobile BR games, although the number of players will likely be down to 50 or even 30. Though it can go up to a hundred, it won’t be without any gameplay sacrifices.

Smaller Maps


Due to hardware constraints, we can safely presume that the maps in mobile BR games will be smaller. Likely half the size of Fortnite’s map or a third of PUBG’s. Moreover, there will be fewer game world elements like buildings trees, and bushes. Fortunately, this may not be a problem due to the likely small number of players per game.

Exciting Possibilities


The experience will be a downgrade of PUBG, but hopefully, it will be as fulfilling


On a positive note, a mobile BR would pave the way for countless creative possibilities. Having a Hunger Games-like title would be fantastic. It doesn’t need a large player pool per match and developers can incorporate gameplay elements like starvation, survival, and fatigue to shake things up. It doesn’t have to be a shooter: a medieval-inspired game would be fantastic, and it’s definitely something we hope is in the works.

Overall, though mobile BR games won’t be as comprehensive compared to those in PC and consoles, it can still provide a decent experience. Plus, it enables mobile gamers to get in the fun and somehow experience BR in their own way. Most importantly, it will be exciting to see the creative ideas mobile developers will bring to our touch screens.
