Isaac Cabanas

When we compare Fortnite Battle Royale to PUBG also known as Player Unknown Battle Ground, it becomes clear that they look like they are the same game but when we look closer into both of the games you can see that they are surprisingly two different games. In this article you will see the clear differences and similarities between the two games and you might learn something new by reading this.


One difference between Fortnite Battle Royale and Player Unknown Battle Ground is the map.Fortnite has a more smaller map that is 4x4km and PUBG Erangle and Miramar maps are 8x8km. Fortnite has a smaller map for more quick and competitive games while on the other hand PUBG has a more slower pace matches and not that much action until the safe zone gets smaller.


     Safe zone

One similarity between Fortnite and PUBG is there safe zone. Many people say that fortnite and PUBG are the same because of their safe zone but that only one similarity out of a little bit of them. The safe zone for both games always gets smaller while the game proceeds and everytime the zone gets smaller it starts taking away more health form you so the smaller the zone the more health you lose.


Another difference between both popular games, Fortnite and PUBG is there graphics. PUBG clearly has the gritty militaristic aesthetic down. While fortnite on the other hand has a much lighter, pixar-esque cartoon style.

     Game play

 The most obvious difference between fortnite and PUBG is their game play style. In PUBG it is a more slower pace game because the map is larger so there is not that much action at the start of any PUBG game until the zone gets smaller. But in Fortnite it is a much smaller map so there is almost always action anywhere you land. However the difference that makes both games different is the way that you can build in Fortnite. In Fortnite if you are just walking and people start to shoot you in the back you can quickly turn around and build so you can take cover. While in PUBG you have to hide in the grass or find rocks or buildings to take cover.


Fortnite and Player Unknown Battle Ground used to be different because PUBG has vehicles and Fortnite used to not have vehicles when the game bearly got released so people can play it. But recently Fortnite has added 3 vehicles in their game such as, Shopping carts, Golf carts and a new one that came out a couple days a is quadcrasher. So now Fortnite and PUBG both have vehicles so players can travel the map quicker.
