Realm Royale vs Fortnite: How are they different?
Paladins’ Battle Royale , called Realm Royale , is stomping pretty hard . Such is the level of popularity that has reached Ninja , one of the streamers of Twitch with the highest number of subscribers and reputed Fortnite player , has decided to play him these days, with the consequent boost that has been in terms of number of players It means that they wanted to imitate their idol, or simply play the same as him. However, competition in the genre is very hard. With PUBG disappearing more and more before the titan that is Fortnite: Battle Royale , does Realm Royale really have something to do? ¿How are they different ?
The characters: magicians against military
The first thing that attracts attention is the visual aspect. While Fortnite offers us a wide range of skins of all kinds – Season 4 is focused on superheroes – its aesthetic, even being cartoon , is mainly military. Not in vain Epic Games has always stood out for creating shooters of this nature, from Unreal to Gears of War, up to Fortnite, which is undoubtedly its most colorful, childish, and animated aesthetic project.
Realm Royale, on the other hand, is a Battle Royale that comes from Paladins: Champions of the Realm , a hero shooter very much in the line of Overwatch , and that is therefore less typical than Fortnite in this sense. We have a greater variety of both characters and archetypes, and here there are classes, while in Fortnite there are no predefined roles, being the differences between an avatar and other purely aesthetic. The aesthetics of the characters and stages of Realm Royale is also more medieval.
The weapons: crafteo against obtaining in situ
The Realm Royale weapons creation system attracts a lot of attention , ranging from more conventional weapons such as pistols or shotguns, to others more varied and in keeping with their fantasy setting. The creation in Fortnite is limited to the construction– and destruction – of the stage , this being one of the main differences between both titles regarding the crafting topic .
On the other hand, and continuing with the same theme, in Fortnite: Battle Royale to this day it is impossible to create your own weapons, this being an indispensable part of its gameplay, because we have to obtain them by registering places in the huge mapping of its Battle Royale mode.
The game modes: cooperation against variety
Realm Royale is primarily intended to play in small squads of up to four players . In fact, this game apart reflects its original roots as an additional game mode of Paladins. Fortnite: Battle Royale, on the other hand, offers a lot more variety . To start, we can play it alone, with another player, or in a four-player patrol. And this without counting the Limited Time Events in which has been added virtually any possible twist of Fortnite imaginable: 50vs50, 5 teams of 20 players, and even the possibility of becoming the same Thanos , come directly from Avengers: Infinity War.
Epic Games is giving virtually continuous support to Fortnite: Battle Royale, and no wonder, since it is generating an income almost never seen before in a title of this genre. Realm Royale must put the batteries if you want to make a hole, because now Fortnite offers a greater variety of game modes.
Realm Royale vs Fortnite: the future of the Battle Royale
Time will tell if this Paladins: Champions of the Realm spin-off manages to make a decent dent in the increasingly collapsed Battle Royale genre. For now stomp quite strong , and, according to PC Gamer, in the couple of days or three that this game has been active, which, we remember, is still in the alpha phase, has had peaks of some 9000 players , a figure that is not negligible.
Fortnite: Battle Royale, on the other hand, remains in the Olympus of the genre, after dethroning PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds. Came making relatively little noise, and gradually managed to usurp the position to the title of Bluehole and PUBG Corp. This did not sit too well among its creators, who set out to sue Epic Games for alleged plagiarism.
