Last week in Fortnite, an in-game rescue attempt to help a trapped player went awry. The incident achieved near-memetic status, and Epic added a tombstone into the game commemorating the fallen player. Now, players hold mock funerals, and they’re going just as poorly as the bungled rescue.

A declining player base. Multiple public-relations gaffes. And gameplay that still feels unfinished. Can PUBG turn its fortunes around, or will the game that launched a whole genre be remembered as just a flash in the frying pan?
When hero shooter Paladins announced a battle royale mode, it felt a bit like a tacked on extra to a game struggling for identity. That battle royale mode has transformed into a standalone game, Realm Royale. While it’s still in alpha and rough around the edges, Realm Royale has a few good ideas that could help it…
Battlefield V bring the series back to World War Two and, dear God, has playable women. EA revealed more details today at the EA Play press conference including a closer look at the game’s multiplayer. And of course, that means a battle royale mode.
I’ve played some Fortnite matches alone and with friends, but the game never it clicks with me. I don’t like building or dealing with expert builders. So I was excited to try out the previously PC only H1Z1, which recently started an open beta on PS4. While the basic setup of H1Z1 is similar to Fortnite, playing it…

At this rate, Civilization VI will have one by the end of the year.
Don’t let his superpowers fool you: Thanos’ arrival in Fortnite is surprisingly silly. Players are taking advantage of Thanos in the best ways, or using Thanos to spread cheer. Given that Thanos is supposed to be a homicidal villain, seeing him in Fortnite’s ridiculous world has been amazing.
The hottest game in the world has teamed up with one of the biggest movie franchises around, and while it’s technically a marketing ploy, damn if it’s not a good one. This is the most fun I’ve ever had with Fortnite.
You’ve probably heard about how a comet hit the Fortnite map by now. There’s a reason so many people were transfixed by this cosmic encounter: developer Epic made it feel like an event, worthy of wonder in the same way a real-world solar eclipse would be.
