How Did Battle Royale Games Take Over The World?
The battle royale game archetype has taken the world by storm with the leading title in the genre, Fortnite, breaking record after record, pulling him an enormous player base and dominating in online viewership numbers.
The genre has become so popular and saturated to a point that the video game industry has reached an oversaturation of battle royale titles and developers rush to push out a production, capture market share and cash in on this craze.
But how did we end up here? In today’s video, we trace back the origins of the battle royale genre and track its evolution from a humble mod into the industry titan that we’ve come to know in less than 2 years.

Free to play/crossplay
The music in the background is so good while he explains the games
What is the music in the intro?
Overwatch battle Royale
Boy did people think 3 million concurrent players was a lot, little did they know
“It ran smoothly on every platform”
Switch: that’s a lie
Warzone: Allow me
Intro and outro songs?
Ayyy we got survival games in a battle Royale video
I will say. Apex legends has always and probably will always be my favorite battle royale
Grand battle Royale is my favorite game GBR is better than PUBG for me you guys?
Story Driven Games are so much better then this trash
RUST DID NOT FADE OUT IT IS STILL POPULAR
Yup and Apex threw it all away
Im glad dayz and arma 2 where here those where the games i grew up with
I actually dislike battle royal games I prefer open world
Im kinda sad that cusine royal wasent mentiond once
22:28 i’m doing research for my video on this topic and i was going to use the exact same line lmao
I've played fortnite a few times it was actually had fun playing it. I got brainwashed by all the ppl saying its shit. But literally the same happen to minecraft a few years ago when it got popular by little kids. Anyways fortnite wasn't bad when i started playing it it isn't that bad today. I don't play as recent as i did back then but its still fun to play once a few times. The game isn't even that bad as ppl say it. I don't know why ppl hate on things just because its popular with kids, Kids just want to have fun. There's even memes about some redditors doing something after bullying a kid to death for playing a game that's 'cringy'. Same thing happened to minecraft
OK BUT RENEGADE RAIDER 16:00
I was loving the video until you referred to the best players & showed doc. #mobileArmy lol
Warzone: they dont even know whats about to hit them.
as i was watching this video, i heard him talking about a new contender then i heard the apex music and i swear, i screamed on the inside from happiness
Tetris 99. NO CONEST!!!!
Who ever say the minecraft stole the battle royal formula from any battle royal game is either a 10 year old or a fetus
Me still playing splatoon 2: 👁👄👁
It’s like 7days to die has been forgotten.
I wonder when an update for this video is happening… Warzone?
I love the battle royale movie it was awesome
God I remember when apex launched… I was writing a game review blog for school at that point, and when apex came out I freaked. My friend and I spent probably around 12 hours total that weekend playing it
Multiplayer is still more popular than BATTLE ROYALE
FORTNITE HAS TAKEN OVER THE WORLD AND I AM SICK OF IT. SEEING KIDS DOING DANCES MAKES ME WANT TO DIE
I gotta say, Fortnite's Season 1-3 Main Menu Music is still a beat
Warzone is on the top of the br genre
Kinda upset that escape from tarkov wasn't mentioned but it makes sense in retrospect
Mmm they just didn't lol
The BR genre has changed everything.Look at CoD,they don't care core 6v6 Multiplayer,it is only about Warzones gunsmith.Look at new BF,it will have new BR genre and probably be free.There are no fps games until then,there a BR games and I don't even like this thing.
Battle royale is a fantastic book
It would be interressting if akshon esport goes a bit deeper in to rts because it was the first esport genre in the world beside of csgo
23:37 i know it was a joke but i'm gonna say it anyway.
1 apex legends
Now Battle Royal games seem dead
"Next generation of gaming" yeah yeah what ever you say kiddo -doom
That player unknown reveal moment had me seriously shook
i play apex not for the br, but for the titanfall universe.
The way apex did it is unmatchable.
Bravo! Incredible video!
I don't know why Unturned is in this video at all
Hey. Here’s a little something for fun: https://youtu.be/TQUTGgZbnMg
imo the one thing that gives fortnite a huge leg-up against pubg back in 2017 is how well optimized it was compared to the buggy depressing mess that pubg was
