Fortnite: Battle Royale (PC)
Action 26 September 2017
Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play multiplayer action game developed by Epic Games. The game is based on the battle royale formula and is similar to e.g. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. A hundred players are transported onto an island with almost nothing in their inventory. A player is tasked with finding or looting weapons, traps, and other pieces of gear. The game offers players much leeway - one can run around and shoot as much as he likes, nonetheless, he can also assume the stealth approach, hide in an appropriate spot and eliminate the foes with a sniper rifle. Additionally, one can acquire more resources from buildings, trees, etc. and use them to construct numerous objects such as stairs, covers, and bridges. The only objective a player is tasked with is staying alive until the end of a match. This task is even more difficult due to the fact that the battlefield shrinks continuously. The game has been based on Unreal Engine technology, also used in the production processes of such games as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Tekken 7.
World War 3 (PC)
An online free-to-play first-person shooter developed by The Farm 51, a Polish studio known for such titles as Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, Deadfall Adventures, or Get Even.

In the game, we assume the role of soldiers fighting in the eponymous fictional conflict, while the action takes place in such locations as Paris, London, or Berlin. Battles are fought in PvPvE mode in which the players not only compete against each other but also have to perform tasks prepared by the developers. An emphasis was put on cooperation between the players, so a sharp eye and the ability to plan and cooperate within a team are equally important.

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds (PC)
Action 20 December 2017
An online shooter with elements of survival, focusing on a Battle Royale type of competition (the last man standing wins). Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds is a game from the developers of TERA MMO and the creator of Battle Royale mods for Arma II and Arma III. The rules of the game are simple: a large number of players are put together in a big closed location with only one mission – to eliminate everyone else. A game ends when there is only one player left alive. Participants start off completely unarmed, so the first phase is basically a race for the best weapon. Players can make use of various kinds of traps, and the game offers much freedom when it comes to choosing the methods of eliminating enemies. An extra help for that comes from a simple crafting system, which lets you construct items from gathered resources. Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds’ fast-paced gameplay is further increased by the fact that the map is gradually getting smaller, making confrontations between players more frequent.
