Bluehole's Worry about Fortnite's Battle Royale Mode Makes Sense

Bluehole's Worry about Fortnite's Battle Royale Mode Makes Sense

As mentioned, the Fortnite Battle Royale free update will arrive today, Tuesday September 26, but not before the games servers go down for an "extended" period. Kim clarified that Bluehole's focus does not revolve around ownership of the genre, but rather the fact that Epic Games provide Bluehole with technical support for the Unreal Engine. Kim stated that the issue is "not about" the game mode itself, saying that the company "never raised an issue" about the game modes spotlighted in titles like Grand Theft Auto 5. The "Battle Royale" mode sees 100 players face off in a fight to the death, with only one victor standing at the end.

So if that's not the case, then what is?

To get a better understanding of just how many people are playing this game at the same time, it's as if about half of the United States' population stopped what they were doing and started playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. But even that seems a little bit like a stretch. We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press. The "PubG" creator feels that too many elements were ripped off from their own game, given that "Fortnite" possesses a battle royale type of game mode much like "PubG". Either way, it still stands that there is room in this indubitably crowded industry for both to exist.

Once you're done downloading, you'll be free to play Fortnite: Battle Royale.

"We use Unreal Engine to develop PUBG, and we pay a large amount of royalties based on the size of our success to Epic Games, and Epic Games always promoted their licensing models [saying] "We want to support the success indie developers" and '[Bluehole is] this indie developer that has been the most successful one using the Unreal Engine this year', and that's the problem that I see".

However there seems to be a much deeper reason why the company is so anxious about the mode, and that's due to Unreal Engine, the engine which both PUBG and Fortnite are built on, and the engine that Epic Games owns. Let us know, join us on Discord, on our Facebook page, or Twitter.
