Battle Royale which was nothing more than a sub-genre has grown into a full-fledged videogame genre in the last few years. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds(PUBG), Fortnite Battle Royale and Apex Legends are some of the top examples which define the genre.

Videogames like DayZ and PUBG have contributed more than any other game in this genre. At current, there are a lot better and good BR games out. Today we have shortlisted the 5 best Battle Royale games that you should play in 2020.

6. Apex Legends

Apex Legends

Apex Legends is the first battle royale game that didn’t have any beta phase. From the creators of Titanfall series, we got a game whose development was kept secret. Since launch Apex Legends has been growing astronomically. It was the first BR game to surpass Fortnite at some fronts.

Apex Legends is a Battle Royale game in which characters (legends) with special abilities and quirks fight to win. At current Apex Legends is without a doubt the best battle royale game. You ask why? Because it has brought many new features which were not known to the BR genre. Apex Legends focuses on its characters and their backstory. The new season will release on February 4th which also marks the 1st anniversary of the game.

It offers new content and updates almost every month. It is the first BR game which since launch has no groundbreaking bugs. The public relations team or the devs all know what their community wants. Many other factors make Apex Legends the best BR title.

5. Mordhau

Mordhau: Battle Royale

It is an Indie Kickstarter game that received global recognition. Mordhau is not the best battle royale game. BR is just a part of the game which lacks a player base. However, the skill-based medieval combat is an aspect which we can’t ignore. The game is fun to play and it is a unique battle royale game everyone should try at least once.

4. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds


PUBG has contributed a lot to the battle royale genre. There are a lot of battle royale games out in the market. However, no game could provide better realistic gunplay as PUBG does.

It stands out for its realistic gameplay design and beautiful graphics. PUBG is a phenomenon that every gamer knows.

3. Fortnite Battle Royale

Okay, kids, we are finally here. Fortnite was not a game that was deliberately launched as a BR. Fortnite was meant to be a multiplayer survival game along with a battle royale mode which was in beta stages.

However, things didn’t go as planned and within a short period, Fortnite became the biggest BR game. The cartoonish graphics, daily content updates, low system requirements, and forgiving gunplay made it more accessible to the new generation.

Now don’t take Fortnite as an easy game. The building aspect of the game requires a lot of training and grinding. It is what solely defines Fortnite as a unique BR experience. The new season will be arriving on February 20th. So, if you haven’t played the game it’s a good time to install it.

2. Call of Duty Blackout 

COD Blackout

COD Blackout is a battle royale game that had a good start. However, at current the game is not doing that well. With major of its players base shifting towards other games (like Escape from Tarkov), it can even be considered half dead.

Now, the main reason to put COD Blackout in this list was to acknowledge the game. It is a good BR game. The graphics are great, gunplay is as smooth as other COD games, there are a diverse variety of guns and vehicles and more.
