Fortnite Battle Royale Launches

There are new release notes on the Epic Games website for a new version 1.6.3 patch that's now live in Fortnite, their early access survival game. This adds the game's new Battle Royale mode, which they admit is inspired by PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, though this confession has not prevented backlash over the similarities. Here's word on this free mode:
It’s time for everyone to drop out of the Battle Bus and into Fortnite Battle Royale as the mode goes free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac with the release of the 1.6.3 patch tomorrow (Sept. 26). Gather your squad: four-player and two-player groups are here. Along with squads, we’ve added three new weapons and supply crates that drop from the sky during the match containing valuable items and weapons. This patch also includes a full Battle Royale balance pass, bug fixes and more.

For those out there Saving the World in PVE, we fixed a number of campaign bugs among other improvements. We’ll be talking more about the Horde Bash update for Save The World later this week, but if you missed the early look at the update, you can check out the latest dev video here & Zak’s roadmap forum post here.

Check out the full release notes below and let us know what you think on the official forums and Discord.

Blizzard didn't invent the MMO Wheel but it did refine it. Same goes for every genre. But Epic Games was putting out marketing material using the PUBG name. It is the Battle Royale "genre" which you could use FPS, MOBA, RTS, etc, but no the explicitly used PUBG in referencing their game, which is a pretty big no no among devs.

If you climb of your high horse that's facing the wrong direction and read Bluehole's explanation you will find that they have issue with the Unreal Engine being used for both games. Nothing to do with marketing, nothing to do with the name, nothing to do with the genre.

Also you clearly haven't been into games for a long time. Its very common to reference your inspiration for creating your game.

Yea how dare Epic use the Unreal Engine to make their own game! Obviously the Unreal Engine was created by god for PUBG and all the time Epic engineers spent creating all the engine features that PUBG uses was actually paid for by Bluehole and Epic has *NO RIGHT* to use their own code!... not many people know that.
