For the uninitiated, Fortneet is the new title of Epic Games leaving the 26 September. In the style of royal battle, the game will consist of dropping it into a single map up to 100 players who will fight each other to remain the last survivors. Do you notice coincidences with PUBG? Do not mistake and the creators themselves have noticed.
In fact, it seems that the Bluehole starts to consider the similarities between their creature and the one coming from Epic Games as a problem. These are their words: “After listening to various feedbacks from our community and after viewing the game ourselves, we are worried that Fortnite can replicate the gaming experience for which PUBG is known ".
Not only. The most serious allegations come with the second part of the statement: "We also noticed that Epic Games refers to PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite their community and communication with the press. We have never discussed this and we do not believe it is right. The PUBG community has and continues to provide evidence of many analogies. We are deciding how to proceed. "
That the style of games based on battle royale dynamics are similar is an inevitable question. Last Man Standing in this context would also be in stark contrast. As well as Paladins for Overwatch, for example. For this reason, unless you want to totally review the policies on the authorship of a given format or style of play, I find the second part of the criticisms much more serious and fundamentally more solid. What do you think? We will keep you updated on what will happen in the future.
