To the uninitiated, Fortnite is a popular battle-royale survival game on PC as well as iOS. While the game theme is similar to PUBG, the game is free to play on PC. The game comes with in-game purchases for adding some aesthetic tweaks to your character, but apart from that, the game is entirely free to play. The game stands to compete against Apex Legends, by EA, which is another battle-royale themed game which is free to play.

When compared to PUBG, there are considerable differences in the way the game looks and feels. For starters, the game looks more cartoonish as opposed to a serious setup on PUBG, with bright colours instead of a dystopian warzone as seen on PUBG. It also brings in Minecraft-like options to build your fort or bunker by collecting materials to combat against opponents. 

Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite's free-to-play nature has attracted quite a bunch of players on PC, as well as iOS. Various game streamers have actually earned a fortune playing Fortnite, including the famous Ninja who won Rs 70 Crore in 2018 by just broadcasting his Fortnite gameplay online.
