ARMA III Fortnite H1Z1: King of the Kill Last Man Standing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Rules of Survival The Culling

Best Alternative Games For PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)

Battle royale games are now one of the hottest genres right now. It is an unpredictable genre where no one can tell whos gonna win. One of the hottest game this year is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds also known as PUBG. In the game, players have to scavenge their own armor, weapons and healing potion in order to survive.

PUBG isn’t just a game that popped out from nowhere, the game designer of the game is Brendan Greene, who is much known for its amazing Arma 3 Battle Royale mod.

Aside from the hottest battle royale right now, there are also numbers of games that offers amazing features which are almost identical to PUBG. However, not all of them have been officially released because they are still undergoing in a beta phase, so expect unexpected issues, bugs, and glitches. If you’re wondering what are they, here’s our best list of games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Alternative Games For PUBG

Last Man Standing

If you just want to experience a battle royale game without spending dime, then go for the Last Man Standing. This is a free-to-play battle royale game that offers surprising gameplay features.

In the beginning, players will spawn into random areas where they need to find gears and weapons then kill each other. Unlike the PUBG, Last Man Standing lacks don’t have vehicles.

The Culling

The Culling has been developed by Xaviant Games who is later popularised by The Hunger Games. It is a first-person melee battle royale game, no guns or whatsoever. The setup of the game is in a jungle with a stadium and a giant scoreboard.

The combat of the game is pretty basic but it’s brutal. The twist here is that you can craft weapons, traps, and find rare items like dynamite and chainsaws. The Culling, however, can only have 16 participants to fight each other.

H1Z1: King of the Kill

Compared to PUBG, H1Z1: King of the Kill is a lighter game. It only offers few weapons, no attachments and you don’t get the option where you can drop the parachute. That being said, its worth noting that when you landed in the battlefield, you’ll eventually see other players, leading to a stampede hunt for armors and weapons –  what a bloody opening of the game.

If you want a faster pace of battle royale game, H1Z1: King of the Kill is the game for you. Unlike PUBG, this game has a fewer hiding place for you and your enemy.

ARMA – Battle Royale mod

Before PUBG started, Arma battle royale mod is the first battle royale that has been developed by Brendan Greene. If you are looking for a full gear battle, then this Arma 3 mod is the best game that you should play.

Expect the full military-simulation experience with the realistic bullet, high damage, heavy recoil and even the adrenaline rush. There no team up or partnership in this battle royale, you’re all alone and all you have to do is shoot all the moving objects in your front.

Fortnite Battle Royale

Last but not the least is the latest release Fortnite Battle Royale. It’s almost the twin game of PUBG, however, Fortnite Battle Royale offers advanced features like building structures and more.

This game is more complicated that PUBG. It requires fast attention and good strategy or you’ll be kicked by your enemy. One of the most interesting features of this game is the ability to build a structure. In order to build a structure, you have to collect some resources by cutting down trees or killing your opponent who already collected some logs.

There are lots of ways to survive and be the last man standing on this game. One of the sneaky tricks that many players are doing right now is building a ramp where they can climb to the highest point.

Bonus – Rules of Survival

If you’re really a fan of battle royale game, then maybe its time for you to bring your skills to the mobile phone. Following the success of PUBG, lots of battle royale game has been published on smartphones. But among all of these battle royale themed mobile games, the Rules of Survival is the best –  it does actually have the same gameplay before starting the game, dropping your character and surviving the match.
