Since, the Player Unknown’s Battleground came out, people have been crazy about the sandbox survival game. Epic games launched a new standalone version for their game Fortnite, Fortnite: Battle Royal.
Epic Games who are the creators of the Unreal Engine 4, came out with the free to play version in response to the highly popular PUBG. It’s now available for free on PS4, PC and Xbox 360.
Epic Games will offer microtransactions for the game in the form of cosmetic items, but the developer has said it will not sell any items that impact gameplay or give any players an advantage.
Epic Games even mentioned PUBG in their early marketing and promotion. Bluehole, the creators of PUBG aren’t very happy with this. “We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press. This was never discussed with us and we don’t feel that it’s right,” said Bluehole VP and executive producer Chang Han Kim. He also said that Bluehole is contemplating taking some “action” against Epic.
Let us hope that both the developers find a solution and continue providing the players with best of their content.
