Life Is A Game, So Fight For Survival: Fortnite Battle Royale

Hello everybody! Tech Kaiju is here again with the game called Fortnite. Battle Royale games have been very popular in the gaming industry and right now there are so many games that has a Battle Royale setting on it. Respectively one of the popular games that came out was Player’s Unknown BattleGrounds or PUBG. Game started out with a bang as a lot of players started joining in on its 2nd week. It has around a player count of 89,000. Not only that, Battle Royale mode can also be compared to movies such as Hunger Games where in you need to eliminate everybody in order for you to survive and win the Battle Royale Game.

Fortnite is a game that focuses on having forts and defending yourselves against waves of enemy Zombies. You can get the game on PC, Xbox One and on the PS4. Its believed to be set for free this coming 2018 however If players pre-order or purchase the game early they’ll get instant access to some goodies to help them progress easier on the game. The game also focuses on gathering materials, looting areas for guns and ammo as well as medical items. What made the game stood out with other Battle Royale games is that you can build walls, fortifications, houses and etc.

Battle Royale in Fortnite was released in September 2017. That marked the beginning of a new Battle Royale in the gaming industry as its much complicated in a sense that you gotta learn to think fast and act as needed. Its almost the same as PUBG but the building and gathering resources makes it more unique than any other Battle Royale games nowadays.

 

The Battle Royale game mode of Fortnite starts off in a preparation phase where in players can shoot guns freely and try out items. Then moving on forward to the bus where it will pass on a certain path where players need to jump in and get items, weapons to survive the battle. Item sharing in the game is also important as it will fit you and your squad, YES you and your squad against other hostile squad players willing to take you out of the competition. Medkits, Bandages and etc are really important healing items for a squad. Solo, Duo and Squad are the room types that the game has. Then at the Game Awards, Epic Games decided to release a game mode with players split into 2 teams. So the announcement was epic as it stirred a lot of players to play the game mode with 50 vs 50 players on it. Massive map, with a lot of players on it is totally chaotic so always practice and aim straight.

The game features a really big map as well, so before you jump out of the bus. Make sure you and your squad already did the call outs when to land or when to not land or Takeoff. In addition, there’s also a circular storm which will consume players if you stay outside of the that Circular Storm. From what I’ve experienced Fortnite Battle Royale is such a good game in terms of the Battle Royale setting of it. It allows the players to quickly build their defenses once they move from location and another chasing the Circle of the Storm. So the excitement of the game really boils down to who gets the good equipment, and to those who are good in building forts or bases.

Fortnite also has events on the game like last October they had a Halloween update which will allow players to use this update. Most likely this Christmas, Epic Games would apply another update to welcome Christmas this year among the players.

I’ll be blogging more on video games here on Tech Kaiju so buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been very modified and different from its predecessor. Unlike Star Wars Battlefront 1. This game introduced classes which has Assault, Heavy, Officer and Specialist. Much like what they did in the Battlefield series, it brings up the feeling of playing the previous Battlefront games from the Playstation 2 series. So these classes are very unique and each and everyone has very important roles. For example, an assault can use a skill that is called Vanguard which let’s you equip a shotgun for a limited time you can also sprint faster to eliminate hostiles in the objective. Same as the Officer you can drop auto turrets to defend or takeover objectives. For the Heavy class you are the guardian of your army by providing heavy fire upon your enemies. The Specialist class on the other hand specializes with sniping. You will also encounter other classes like the trooper with a Jet pack or a hard armored units like a Wookie Warrior at your disposal.

The multiplayer mode consists of different games modes including Galactic Assault which pits players in an objective based gameplay. One faction attacks capturing objectives, taking control of a certain terminals and etc. While the defending faction needs to make sure that they drain the reinforcement tickets of the other faction to 0. Multiplayer maps focuses on live events that happened in the Star Wars Universe including the famous Kamino Invasion where in the clones are desperate to repel the attack of the separatist forces on their home planet. Much like in Operations from Battlefield 1. There are also star cards that have been involved which can make your troopers with additional power ups such as Supercharged Sentry, Improved Thermal Detonators, and etc. So far, the multiplayer has been fun and engaging at times. Another game mode called Starfighter assault will bring fans in the cockpits of the Star Wars ships such as X-Wing, TIE Fighter, Millennium Falcon, and etc. It also conveys objective gameplay such as Galactic Assault but its gonna be on space. Yes, you heard it right! On space with different players, massive space dogfights, and more.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 also offers a good campaign story which focuses on the protagonist Iden Versio daughter of a very powerful admiral of the Imperial Army. No spoilers will be spilled in this blog so its okay to read. The main focus of the story is bridging the connection between Episode 6 going to Episode 7 of the Star Wars franchise so if you’re a big fan, you really have to try the campaign on this one and see what happens.

The only downside is the lag of the servers which EA hasn’t fixed up til this day. Star Wars Battlefront 2 also has a forum where in active players in the community can report bugs, issues and more directly to the EA developers of the game.

Now EA the developer of Star Wars Battlefront 2 has been engaged into a lot of controversies including micro transaction involved in games. This information about micro transaction was actually said by a developer in an active forum which went very viral all over the internet. EA made a move immediately to try and remedy the situation but it was all too late as famous Youtubers vent out and started raining down on the game before it can even be released to the public.

In response to the overwhelming negativity of the people, before the release date of the game, EA pulled out all micro transactions involved in the game to prevent any more damages or problems that might occur. However it was really quite too late as the company’s stock fell 8.5 percent this month through Tuesday, with a colossal loss of $3.1 billion in shareholder value.

I hope you guys enjoyed this part of the blog. We’ll be creating more so please stay tuned!
