This genre has taken over the gaming world by storm and is not stopping anytime soon. Since the release of PUBG on PC in 2017, gamers of all ages and demographics have taken a liking to the crazy action of Battle Royale. H1Z1 and Fortnite came out not long after that and it turned the volume all the way up to 11. With each update, and mod, and skin and crazy weapon and vehicle, the gameplay has gone from crazy to insane. PC, consoles and even mobile devices are in cahoots and they are not shy about it.

As the popularity of the genre grew in a very short period of time, other developers, new and seasoned, joined the league and are making an entry into the world of BR gaming.

Here are some of the newly released battle royale titles and coming soon

1. Blackout

Recently joined the BR family is a legendary title from Treyarch and Activision called ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’. Blackout is a battle royale like no other. It is fast paced and an FPS but more than that, it feels like ‘Black Ops’ and under the care of a Triple A developers, this title truly shines.

Blackout introduces a new gameplay mechanics and design for the battle royale. It feels faster and visually stunning. Aesthetics aside, the new features are rather unique to this genre as well. You can heal while sprinting and swimming, shoot while swimming, activate perks while sprinting, even wing-suit off a cliff and cover some major distances, which seems to be a big thing in these types of games.

Already out of Beta since September and is available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and just to get your blood pumping, here is the gameplay trailer of Blackout.

2. Egress

Guardian

Battle royale game with something different. It is a heroes-based PvP but with melee weapons. Oh yes, you are reading it correctly. Egress is

‘Souls-Like’ 

lore-filled alternate universe set in Victorian era. It has shades of ‘Bloodborne’ and of course ‘Dark Souls’ series.

Combat system is based on dodging, attacking, abilities’ combos and of course the strengths and weaknesses of one’s chosen hero.

Game is just released on November 8th, 2018 and is already making a name for itself. If anything, with a reasonable price tag, it is worth a try.

Second game from the developer Fazan and already a homerun. Log on to Steam and get yours.

(*There is a 15% discount going that ends on November 15th)

3. Dying Light: Bad Blood

Oh the ambush

With a mix of PvP & PvE, Dying Light series says hello to the battle royale genre with ‘Bad Blood’. The Parkour style gameplay in the midst of zombies just keeps you busy all day long. Zombie hoards and hives are there to create some chaos and gore. Many ways to level up both parkour skills and outsmart and outrun others.

12 go in, 1 comes out

Already a fan favorite since it’s release in September, 2018. Steam carries the title for less than half the price of a Triple A.

Craziness at high speeds

NMC Studios has gone into the deep end. This bastard child of PUBG and Twisted Metal is a thing of epic craziness. As the screenshot above explains the gameplay in a rather unique style you can only imagine what can be achieved while heavy footing some roll-caged buggies with heavy guns on top of them.

You play as cars and your cars carry the weapons. You drive around, and blow your fellow drivers to bits with rockets, gating guns, etc

Pedal-to-the-metal

Custom paint job, hood ornaments, flags and much more to make your ride stand out. This game is still in Alpha but everyone has high hopes for it. Given the success of ‘Rocket League’ and Battle Royales, this game has a lot going for it. And it’s not just the gamers that are excited but the industry is also supporting the hard work of NMC Studios and it proved when they became

‘Unreal Developer Grant winner’

PC will get it first and the console will follow later. May the best car win.

5. Battlefield V Battle Royale

64 enter and 1 survives

A ring of fire

that slowly shrinks and ends up swallowing everything in it’s path. That is the introduction to Battle Royale by Dice and Criterion.

After the massive success of Battlefield I, gamers expect big things from the Battlefield V, rumored to be launched on the 20th of November, 2018 which is inches away. Although it is said that the Battle Royale will come later to the game, the community however is already excited.

The visuals and gameplay taken from the time World War is going to be something special. I for one, hope that they have horses in this mode as well, because the teaser trailer revealed tanks already.

But getting ahead of ourselves is only going to make us want it that much more, and I am fine with that. Let us hope for a earlier release for the BR mode. EA is not known for being on time though.

Google Announces ‘Stadia’: A Cloud-Based Gaming Service

Google Announced Stadia

We all know Google as the search engine, YouTube, Gmail, Maps and of course their tracking our movements and all that jazz but they are bringing something else into their portfolio, something Big. The company announced a Gaming and entertainment service named ‘Stadia’ at GDC 2019, a cloud-based game streaming service. The concept is not new by a long shot but when a company like Google announces it, it becomes legit and a big deal.

The Service

Any game that is available on the service is yours, allegedly and theoretically. No matter the hardware, as long as you have a screen that has an internet connection such as a smartphone, tablet, laptop, tv etc.

Running high fidelity games, and upcoming titles, the services requires so much juice at the back end to make this service viable. To which, Google has come up with a spec sheet for their cloud units which can easily compete with a fully decked out gaming pc out there.

Let’s check out the specs shall we:

GPU – 10.7 teraflops – 56 computing units – HBM2 Memory

CPU – Custom x86 Processor – 2.7 GHz – Hyperthreaded – AVX 2

Memory – 16GB RAM – 484GB/s transfer speed – L2+L3 Cache of 9.5MB

Now let’s get some perspective from the current benchmarks.

Google compared the stats on stage, PS4 Pro runs on 4.2 teraflops while Xbox One X stays capped at 6 teraflops and the rest can be balanced from here. In plain words, these units that Stadia with custom AMD GPU can easily leave a current generation console a run for their money and matches PC is terms of speed and quality, at least in theory.

While people with consoles sitting in their living rooms thinking about the new generation machines to come out with better internals and better games, Google is trying to change the game altogether.

Google claims that at launch, gamers will be able to enjoy 4K resolution with 60 fps with HDR and better quality surround sound. Not only that, similar resolution and fidelity will be translated into streaming the game live on YouTube channel will be possible. All of this sounds so promising and a gamers and streamers dream. In future, the stats will move to 8K at 120 fps but there is no solid word on that front.

It sounds ridiculous to any PC gamer who hears that the streaming service will be able to run the titles in 4K while most PCs today can’t do that but imagine if your game can’t run in 4K but the servers a lot you a secondary unit and now you are running the game with not one but two gaming PCs. This however requires back end support from the developers to allow such a thing to happen, but I am not certain if that will be possible right from the get-go.

Stadia controller is something I am really interested in especially if it will connect to multiple devices including mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, or even consoles. The controller looks similar to DualShock by Sony but with a cleaner look and two new buttons: Capture and Smart function. In case you are not interested in buying yet another controller and find a place to charge it, then you can use any controller you want as long as it connects to the internet device running the Stadia app or service.

The caveats are two major ones with this service; it won’t be available worldwide and you require one heck of an internet connection to play and stream the game. If you can surpass these hurdles and Google is able to deliver on these alleged perks then this will be the new gaming benchmarks and may end up reforming the industry.
