Among releases, reworks, and games that have just entered Early Access, check out the five Battle Royale games that have stood out the most on computers in the past year.


Originally released in 2017, it was in 2018 that the Epic Games title really burst and became a gigantic fever all over the planet, conquering millions with its mix of shooting and construction mechanics.

The free to play free download model also helps the title win more fans every day, and each season features new game modes, skins and vehicles to make games even more fun.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

The pioneer title PUBG also had a great year of 2018, although it lost most of it popularity to the Fortnite phenomenon after having excelled in 2017, when it got to be candidate of game of the year in The Game Awards.

In 2018 PUBG remained relevant by adding its third map, Sanook, in addition to announcing a fourth winter-themed map. There was even room for new weapons and skins, such as the partnership with DC and Warner that provided skins for the Joker and Harlequin.


In 2018 the Daybreak title ended its Early Access phase and was officially released, with the right to new game modes and features that helped make it something different from the other options on the market.

From a vehicle-only mode, Auto Royale, to a new map called Outbreak, Daybreak title has managed to bring enough appeal to fuel the competent H1Z1 eSports scenario.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4

When Activision and developer Treyarch announced that the new COD would not bring a standard campaign mode, many players were surprised by the decision, an even more justified reaction following the announcement of a battle royale mode, the first in the series.

However, the mode was just what COD needed to reinvent itself and find a new audience, to avoid becoming obsolete and grow in the streams and eSports scenario. COD Black Ops 4 was the best game of the series in a long time!
