What makes Battle Royale video games so popular today? And why now? Here’s why people simply cannot get enough of the genre.
Battle Royale involves putting many combatants against one another until a single fighter remains. This format has been used in films and entertainment for years and years, and it has migrated to gaming in the form of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and other similar titles. The sub-genre is incredibly popular with alternative titles popping up and amassing impressive concurrent player figures — PUBG alone managed to pull in three million on Steam alone. Everyone is playing Battle Royales, but what makes them so appealing?
These are a few of the factors that keep gamers returning for more action.
