Battle Royale Games

Fortnite seems to have come out of nowhere to become one of the most popular online shooters today. The phenomenon has even crossed over to the sports and entertainment worlds: When Drake and the Pittsburg Steelers' wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster hopped online to play a few rounds of Fortnite on Twitch with a popular streamer, the internet went crazy. But Fortnite isn't the only game using the battle royale formula, pitting one player against all others to be the last gamer standing. We have a list of other games that can fill the fast-paced-action itch. Be sure to check out our Best Action Games for Kids list, and for parents concerned about shooters, check out our Gun-Free Action Game Apps list.
