Apex Legends vs Fortnite are both battle royale games. These video games are very popular amongst gamers. Apex Legends was recently announce on Twitter last week. Streamers can’t wait to get their hands on it. A popular Fortnite streamer Ninja was on top of Twitch page already. Respawn Entertainment the developers who created TitanFall is involved. The gameplay has an inspiration from Fortnite (go figured), Gear of War, Halo and many more. The concept is be the last squad standing. Players have to be in a squad. There is no duos and solo (if player drops out). You can play a legend in the hub, but have to wait your turn. Each Legend has one skill and ultimate. Unlike Overwatch and Paladins that were 3 skills. There is a mechanic called “Jumpmaster” which you guide your team on a certain spot.
If you are not jumpmaster, it’s optional to follow or not. While on the ground, you can ping locations, gear and etc. You and your team search for loot like PUGB and Fortnite. Players can only carry two weapons like Destiny. When you’re defeated by the enemies in battle. Your squad mates can revive you by going to a beacon. First, you must acquire teammates banner to bring them back. There is wall climbing and care packages for more loot. When you defeat a opponent, there is a finisher to execute. You can get their loot and gear. Apex Legends is just a starter will have more to come. It does have loot boxes for unlocking skins and legends. We will talk about Fortnite that inspired this game.
Fortnite battle royale
Fortnite has been around for sometime. It begins to become salty and stagment after Apex Legends is release. Fortnite is on season 7 and some great content. None less Fortnite took inspiration from PUGB and put their spin on it. The gameplay is standard Player’s Unknown Battleground format. Wait until the battle bus and players to show up. Jump off the Battle Bus and pick a spot. Get gear to defend yourself from other players. If you are any danger, build your defenses to protect yourself. The latest Fortnite update is riding aircrafts and bikes. There is battle passes for unlocking additional skins, dances and many more. Epic Games will try to add more amazing features in the coming seasons.
What both games have in common? They both have storm systems that player have run from. It’s very competitive for Esports players and causal gamers. These two games are in competition with each other. Apex Legends does have server problems while streaming on OBS. That’s another blog post to discuss that problem. I am not a huge fan of battle royale games. Definitely not good at these games but I have score some kills. If you want to check out my Apex Legends and Fortnite live streams. Go to my gaming channel for those videos. Overall, I would say Apex Legends if they had duos and solos. Fortnite is getting watered lately.
Overall thoughts on both games
Apex Legends is very innovated game with complex control scheme. Define HD graphics and presentation of the characters. Fortnite is making the game little more fun and light-hearted tone. I would love to see more Apex Legends in the near future. It’s just matter of time that Fortnite will be dead soon. Apex Legends is available now for PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One for free. Fortnite is available now on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and mobile phone platforms.
