The battle royale genre is a relatively new format that emerged thanks to PUBG. The developers proposed a game concept for a battle between large groups of players for survival, where everyone will have the task and opportunity to find weapons, ammunition, body armor, a helmet, a backpack, a sight and other accessories and use the entire arsenal to survive and advance to the status of the last surviving player on the map.
Escape From Tarkov
The project offers a dark setting of confrontation between two PMCs, which are constantly at odds with each other and fight for resources in an abandoned and disputed territory called Tarkov.
You will choose your side of the conflict and go on raids for loot to constantly strengthen your operative.
Each death is the loss of a hero and property, but the preservation of the level. Essentially, you will receive a new operative every time you die.
Of course, you can pick up lost equipment if no one needed it at the scene of death, but the probability is very small.
If desired, certain lots of your equipment or weapons can be insured for eft roubles. In this case, upon death, your weapon will not be able to go to your enemies and will be returned to your storage over time.
Tarkov is built on a realistic concept of fighting and shooting and instead of an arcade trajectory, which always follows directly from the bullet, the direction and conditions are ballistic, that is, it always falls down and this must be taken into account when planning fire and aims a little higher.
You can go on raids and forays alone, as part of a group, or in a large squad – the system does not limit you in any way.
You will be able to ambush other units and catch representatives of other PMCs and bandits in order to collect valuable loot and loot from them, as well as level up and earn Tarkov rubles.
The whole concept is about heightened realism, where you won’t have any aids.
You will identify opponents using visual contact and remember the game card from its physical copy.
You can always get it from your inventory, but it’s better to learn it in advance and find general and understandable landmarks by which you can find entrances and exits from locations.
The general concept is to enter dangerous territory, fight with bandits and representatives of other PMCs, control resources and their delivery to peaceful territories and constantly update the hero in the event of death while maintaining the level and all insured or packed equipment in storage.
This is a project that, in principle, brought and popularized the battle royale genre and added a powerful tournament component.
You will be landing in a large area without any equipment and must find it before everyone else and constantly fight, or hide until there are fewer opponents left so that it will be decided who will remain top 1.
Periodically, random zones will be subject to artillery strikes and airdrops.
If everything is clear with the strikes, then dropping supplies by air is an opportunity to get reinforced weapons or equipment, but you will not be the only one claiming it, and you need to be confident in your abilities so as not to die in shootouts with experienced fighters.
The most interesting and popular format is team games.
In the match settings you set the composition of the combat squad of two, three, or four people.
Even if you do not have a squad, they will select random partners for your team.
The most interesting thing, of course, is to play as part of a squad of four people, because this is exactly the composition that is used in e-sports games.
You will land and control the territory as part of your squad, and victory will be awarded to one of the squads, which will remain surviving in terms of the number of participants, even if it is only one character.
With a larger number of players, you will be able to more actively and safely use various vehicles and play out tactical techniques.
A project from EA Games, which was inspired by the PUBG system, but implemented according to a system of not only survival in the territories and movement to the top 1, but also using a system of agents who, through their skills, contribute to the group’s victory in the match.
Apex matches are faster and more dynamic, because firstly, there are many more weapons and special means on the map that enhance defense in battle, or attacking grenades and various cartridges.
Secondly, there will be fewer enemies and a smaller territory on the map, so the game will quickly move to the stage of top 10, then top 5 and finally the fight for top 1.
The most popular and simple agents
A heroine with the ability to summon and control drones and deliver medical supplies for herself and the entire group.
She is the only one who can not raise a fallen ally with her own hands, but continue to fight while the drone revives the fallen comrade.
Drones are also used to deliver first aid kits, which you no longer need to look for and you can always regenerate your health.
This is a robotic support hero who can independently generate health for himself and create supplies for his team, thanks to which he can constantly replenish ammo even in prolonged battles.
He can also restore armor elements, strengthening the group’s defense.
A hero who easily tracks his prey and sees even the most hidden targets, which greatly helps in the fight against intruders and ambushes.
A master of stealth and a character who can easily throw off pursuers and open gates between two points on the map.
When the Rafe wants to avoid damage, she goes into the underworld and cannot attack enemies or take any damage. Only a number of characters can see the agent during the action of the skill, or track him by movement.
The remaining heroes are more complex in terms of gameplay, but each has its own unique characteristics that need to be taken into account. Usually these are two main skills and one ultimate, which makes the hero stand out. Artillery, invisibility, damage enhancement, stealth and other possible options.
