So, whatever your device is, you are able to play this game using your own device. For your information, this game is a spin-off from Fortnite: Save the World which is a cooperative survival game with constructions elements.
This game can be played up to 100 players, in duos, alone or in squads of up to four players. How to play this game? Players in this game will start with no intrinsic advantages and they have to scavenge for weapons and armor to get the upper hand on their opponents. The game also adds the construction element from Fortnite. Players are able to break down most objects in the game world to get resources that they are able to use to build fortifications as part of their strategy. As mentioned before that Fortnite Battle Royale is spin-off from Fortnite: Save the World. So, this game uses the similar core mechanics as Save the World including:
- Survive the storm.
- Harvest Materials in which with your pickaxe you can break things.
- Scavenge for weapons and items of varying rarities in treasure chest, supply drops and ammo boxes.
- Move around the map, attack your opponents and build to defend yourself.
Even though this game is spin-off from Save the World, but you have to notethat your opponents in Battle Royale are not the Husks of Save the World. Your opponents in Battle Royale are other players. There are 100 players in total who enter a matchmaking queue in one of some game modes including Duos, Solo, Squads, Playground and 1 or more Limited time modes. The arena of play is an island and it is not a Region. In the island, there will be numerous static locations. In the game, players will leap out of the Battle Bus as it travels across the map at a random trajectory and select their own starting point.
When the game begins, all players spawn with a Pickaxe. In this game, along with weapons, there are a lot of items to pick up and use. Several of them provide health regeneration or bonus shields and others perform a variety of functions related to building. Building is a core mechanic of Battle Royale. It functions in the similar manner as building in Save the World. It is important to know how, when and where to build when you compete for a Victory Royale. The gameplay of this game is marked by seasons. In the beginning of every season, players will be given a blank slate and the possibility of earning in-game cosmetic items named skins for getting certain goals and getting experience.
