Battle royale games take place in an online multiplayer arena. These video games boast a last-team-standing (LTS) concept combined with the beloved survival and scavenging trope we’ve grown familiar with since the early days of Fortnite.

If you’ve never played the game, you’ll at least be familiar with the famous show The Walking Dead and its pop culture influence on our gaming community. While that deserves its own blog, we’re not here to talk about a post-apocalyptic show.

We’re here to provide you with a list of battle royale games that were released in 2023 and left an indelible mark on our community with their graphics, challenges, characters, and other elements.

5. Farlight 84

Farlight 84 is a total game-changer that's often mentioned in the same breath as Fortnite, and trust us, the graphics are nothing short of mind-blowing. This video game's a third-person shooter that lets you take control of some seriously powerful vehicles armed with enough firepower to blow your mind, much like the stuff of gaming legends.

What's even cooler? Some of these beasts can actually transform into massive machines to rival Optimus Prime.

Instead of an instant game over as soon as you enter the battlefield; this battle royale game will keep you on your toes. So you can really flex your gaming skills without stressing over a minor misstep. You’ve also got jetpacks at your disposal. Master these, and you'll go from facing certain doom to a sweet victory faster than you can say, "Game on!"

Farlight 84 is more than a game; it's a visual and adrenaline-pumping adventure, offering epic battles perfect for this gaming community and unforgettable comebacks that will keep you hooked.

4. Fall Guys: The Fall Force Update

It’s impossible not to give a shout-out to the awesomely fun Fall Guys when discussing the coolest battle royale games. In this game, you become one of the wacky, adorable, and colorful characters, all aiming to be the big cheese on the block. But let's be real, winning is no piece of cake, with a whopping 59 other players in the mix, all vying for that top spot.

What makes Fall Guys an absolute blast is its one-of-a-kind mix of classic battle royale action and zany rules inspired by the famous TV show Takeshi's Castle.

As you tackle obstacle courses, teamwork becomes your ticket to success, but when the dust settles, only one lucky bean gets to snatch the golden crown. The game's lively and colorful style means it's an epic time for everyone. Its Fall Force update means it’s the most current offering on the market.

3. Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0

We don’t know about you, but Fall Guys was way too colorful of a battle royale game for us. It’s time to switch back to the camo greens and browns of battlegrounds.

Call of Duty: Warzone is a game-changer in the world of battle royales, offering an intense and free-to-play experience.

What sets Warzone apart are its unique elements, like loadout kits and respawn mini-matches, making it a dynamic gaming experience. You'll encounter 150 players in squad-based or solo modes, striving to be the last one standing. Missions, leveling, and loadout kits add a Call of Duty flavor to the game.

Set in the visually stunning Verdansk, Warzone offers a mix of urban and natural environments with exciting verticality. Contracts drive the action, promoting a fast-paced, risk-taking approach.

Warzone impresses with its polished launch and overall performance, making it a standout choice for shooter and battle royale fans. It's a fantastic way to connect with the gaming community and enjoy quality gaming at no cost. Give it a shot for a taste of this thrilling experience!

2. Egg Drop Online

And the prize for the most absurd stakes in a video game goes to *drumroll* Egg Drop Online!

We’ve heard some people ask, “What is the point of this game?”

They aren’t wrong; the game couldn’t be more pointless, but after having played it an embarrassing number of times and stewing on it, we believe being pointless is kind of the entire point of this game. If anything, this game gets points for self-awareness. It knows what it is and isn’t afraid to flaunt it from the get-go.

Egg Drop Online is an epic game of survival that's sure to crack you up! Your mission? Dodge a wild egg storm from above and collect corn to fire back at your rivals below. Outwit and outlast them all to claim your title as the ultimate chicken.

Get ready for an egg-citing challenge, and remember, it's all about being the best of cluck in this wacky game! Okay, enough dad jokes for now.

1. My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble

Ultimate Rumble is the ultimate trio-based battle royale with 24 players in one multiplayer arena. It's all about teamwork and strategy, as you aim to outlast other squads while the safe zone shrinks, similar to Fortnite and PUBG.

The battles are action-packed, with spectacular Quirk skills. Explore the map to find power-enhancing cards and health, adding strategy to the mix. The character roster features 18 heroes, though the villain side is a bit slim. More variety there would be awesome, but who are we to complain?

As a free-to-play game, some favorite characters are initially locked, but rental tickets let you try them, and you can unlock characters by leveling up or earning tickets. The game offers tons of cosmetic rewards, including emotes, costumes, and more. It's a must-try for fans of anime and battle royale enthusiasts alike. Get ready for intense action without breaking the bank!
