Fortnite has been one of the most popular battle royale games ever since its release. But as the gaming industry grows, both in the number of players, streamers and revenue generated (especially by free-to-play games), the battle royale category of games got a boost over the past few years. Unsurprisingly, this led to several games from various developers, and studios enter the market.

While Fortnite is great to play, you may have made some other battle royale platform your home, and if you’re anything like me, it’s probably because your Fortnite friends have shifted elsewhere.
