2018 in Battle Royale Games

There is no denying that 2018 was the year of the Battle Royale. It has dominated just about every conversation about gaming the entire year. For a good reason too, the genre is insanely popular. But, while it has been a great year there have also been more than a few Battle Royale titles shut down. So grab yourself a drink and sit back as we take a look at 2018 in Battle Royale games.

The year had a bit of a rough start as the news came out that H1Z1 had lost 90% of its player base since July 2017. Of course, a lot of the blame for that can be placed on the success of Fortnite and PUBG, so really as far as the genre goes it wasn’t a terrible thing. As the year progressed H1Z1 would go on to have the part of the game that wasn’t a Battle Royale shut down after the game moved to a new internal studio at Daybreak.

This was also the year that Ninja and Drake broke the record on Twitch for the most-viewed stream while playing Fortnite. At its peak, it was watched by 628,000 people around the world. As of this month, Ninja is the most followed Streamer on Twitch. He has more than 12 million followers and each time he streams he averages 53,000 viewers. For those wondering, Ninja started out the year making approximately $500,000 a month from streaming and later told ESPN that he’s now making nearly 7 figures a month. Oh to be Ninja just for a month.

2018 was also the year of lawsuits in the Battle Royale genre. PUBG sued NetEase for copyright infringement with their games Knives Out and Rules of Survival. In turn just a few days later NetEase threatened to sue everyone who wasn’t PUBG because…well, we’re still not really sure what they were thinking about there actually. Basically, their argument boiled down to “you took the idea that we took and made it a little different and hurt the market in doing so.” Which is exactly as stupid as it sounds. PUBG then went and sued Fortnite for plagiarizing its UI and items. Then, because 2018 wasn’t crazy enough already three stars are now suing Fortnite over the sale of emotes of their dances. Backpack Kid, Milly 2, and Alfonso Ribeiro are all going after Fortnite in a move that is seen by many to be nothing more than an attempt at getting some of that sweet Fortnite cash.

Speaking of Fortnite cash, in March Fortnite became the largest free to play console game of all time both in revenue generated and monthly active users. The game is currently sitting at the number 4 spot in terms of monthly revenue for both console and PC games. Towards the end of the year, it looked as though Fortnite had hit its peak in revenue as revenue growth slowed significantly. Of course, when you talk about revenue slowing down you have to take into consideration that Fortnite makes $2 million a day just on iOS. The last number we had was in October stating that Fortnite on iOS made $300 million worldwide just on iOS…in 200 days. Oh to be Epic just for a day.

How are they doing this? Well, according to a study done by Newzoo, Battle Royale players are more likely to spend money on games. In fact, they’re more invested all around than other competitive gamers. They’re more likely to watch esports, spend money, and spend more than 6 hours a week in game. Does that 6 hours a week number feel a bit low to anyone else?

While Fortnite is helping Tim Sweeney live everyone’s dream of swimming in money the Battle Royale genre has suffered a few losses this year. The first Battle Royale to die was Radical Heights, the 80s themed Battle Royale game that was supposed to save Boss Key Studios. Unfortunately what was released was incomplete and, according to those who played it, not all that great. The game closed not long after it was released as the studio collapsed. The result of which made founder CliffyB, of Gears of War fame, declare he would never make another game. He isn’t the first developer to have said this though, so we’ll wait and see if he follows through.

Radical Heights

SOS, upon seeing the massive success of the Battle Royale genre decided to switch gears and transition into a Battle Royale game. It was a complete disaster as none of the fans actually wanted that. So the game was review bombed and it didn’t take long for the game to shut down. They did try to fix things by bringing back the classic game, but for many fans, it was already too late. The Culling 2 was canceled after a less than stellar reception. It was a game that no one really wanted, and even the developers admitted this. Islands of Nyne also recently announced that they can no longer continue to develop the game and it is now in maintenance mode on Steam. The game is free to play and will continue to be available for the time being. With the market being largely dominated by a couple of big games it is an undeniable fact that we will see more Battle Royale games close in 2019, we just have to wait and see which ones it will be.

Much to our surprise, only a few MMOs have jumped on the Battle Royale bandwagon. For a while, those of us at MMOGames feared that every MMO would come out with a Battle Royale mode. Thankfully, at this point only a few have. Skyforge, Mortal Online, Wild West Online, and Ashes of Creation are the most notable. Though you also have it in games like Trove.

Mortal Royale

It was quite a year for the Battle Royale genre and this was barely a look at the surface. There were a vast amount of games we didn’t mention like Rapture Rejects and we didn’t even discuss how many divorces there were because of Fortnite. But now it is time to start looking ahead to 2019. We already know that Planetside Arena is on its way, what else will 2019 bring us? Next week we’ll look at a few predictions.

If you want another look back at 2018 in Battle Royale games take a look at this list of our Battle Royale roundups. They haven’t been running all year, but they will give you a bit of an idea on how the year has gone.

MMO Money: September Earnings for Games, Game Deals Reach Record Highs

In this week’s MMO Money we’ve got a look at the September earnings for games, Mergers and Acquisitions in the gaming industry, investments, and more Tencent news. There were a few surprises this week and a few heartstoppers. Find all of that and more below.


Destiny 2 Gets Massive September Boost

Superdata has released their list of September earnings for games on PC, Console, and mobile. The big story from September was the success of Destiny 2’s expansion Forsaken which shot it up to the number one spot on console. In fact, over 60% of all Destiny 2 monthly users bought the expansion. Also looking solely at console, Fortnite slipped down to 4th place when in the previous month it held the number one spot. There was a lot of moving around and swapping places in the chart in September thanks to expansions and in-game events. Mobile seems to be pretty stable though. Check out the full list below.

Also, part of that report was the news that digital spending on games is up this year from $912 million to $1.24 billion from the same month last year. This is fantastic news as we head into the holiday season. It also suggests that this holiday season will be stronger than last year’s as well.

Wild West Online Studio Collapsed, But All is OK Now?

As it turns out, one of the reasons people stopped talking about Wild West Online for a few months there is because the studio stopped making the game. In fact, the studio collapsed altogether because they couldn’t pay their employees. The game got a bit of a helping hand from Free Reign Entertainment who is now helping to develop the game. The new team only includes 3 from the original team so it sounds like they’re going through a bit of a reboot. Another sign of that reboot is the introduction of a Battle Royale mode. The Battle Royale mode will be ready for testing sometime very soon, but will it be a success? We’ve seen many times where games have transitioned to follow the current trend and suffered for it. One such example is SOS, which never recovered from becoming a Battle Royale title and will be shutting down quite soon.

Epic Raises $1.25 Billion from Investors

It’s a good time to be Epic. They’ve got one of the most successful, most talked about games in the world at the moment and now they’ve got an additional 1.25 billion dollars to work with. The company is already estimated to be worth between 5 and 8 billion. Tencent and Disney are already invested in Epic and now KKR, ICONIQ Capital, Smash Ventures, aXiomatic, Vulcan Capital, Kleiner Perkins, and Lightspeed Venture Partners are joining in. Epic hasn’t laid out any plans for all of that money yet but we’re sure they’re already working on that. CEO Tim Sweeney spoke about the fundraising saying, “We’re excited to partner with the finest minds in the financial, sports, and entertainment communities. This reinforces Epic’s position of leadership in real-time 3D technology, and accelerates our ability to improve the way people play, work, and interact with the world.”

Game Deals in 2018 Worth a Record $25 Billion

Digi-Capital has revealed that games deals have already gone past the $25 billion mark in the first 9 months of 2018, making this year a record year. However, previous experience suggests that we may be in for a sharp decline very soon. 2014 was a fantastic year for mergers and acquisitions but immediately following that we saw a sharp decline to the lowest numbers in a decade. MMOs and MOBAs in mobile and PC sectors saw significant investments despite the fact that these genres are in a decline. Much of it came from Tencent who has been quite busy diversifying and throwing money at companies.

While gaming mergers and acquisitions have hit a near record high just one single deal accounted for nearly half of the total. This was when South African based media group Naspers sold 2% of Tencent for more than $10 billion. That’s a 60,000% return on its original investment.

Games IPOs seem to be following a three-year pattern since 2010. They will have a big year followed by two quiet ones and then repeat. 2017 was a record year with $17.1 billion but that number has dropped 90% to just $1.1 billion in 2018. That suggests that 2019 will also not be a very strong year for IPOs. Which raises questions about Green Man Gaming who has delayed their flotation twice now.

Steam Reaches 90 Million Monthly Users

In just over a year the number of active monthly users of Steam has grown by 23 million according to a new report from Valve. In January they had a peak concurrent users at 18.5 million. This was at the height of PUBG’s popularity. The growth comes, in part like so much of the industries growth this year…from China. In China, the number of people using Steam doubled from 15 million last year to 30 million this year.

What does all of this mean for Valve? More money of course. But, there may also be some complications with their expansion into China as the government cracks down harder every month on games, especially foreign ones.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find a time machine and invest in Tencent.

Wild West Online Reboot Plans Detailed

Fortune has not been kind to the Wild West Online team according to one of the sandbox MMO’s devs. However, in a bid to change that, a Wild West Online reboot is on the way, revamping the game in a couple of pretty significant ways.

wild west online reboot

First and foremost, the game will be released as a free-to-play title. This re-release is broken up into two pieces: Frontier, which is described as a more building and crafting centered form of the original title’s open world; and Magnificent 5, a battle royale mode where 20 teams of five duke it out, building fortifications to protect themselves and searching for artifacts and loot.

According to the dev post, monetization of Magnificent 5 will focus on a battle pass, which operates similarly to ones in other BR games like Fortnite.

For those who have bought in to the game’s early access, there will be compensation in the form of $15 worth of TN and additional “valuable” in-game items. Additionally, all account details will be transferred over to the rebooted game, including login information and any purchased items.

The rebooted WWO will release an all-new launcher in about a week’s time, with Magnificent 5 coming online first and Frontier arriving at some point in November. Both modes will essentially be in an open beta/soft launch state.

Our Thoughts

It might be too little, too late for Wild West Online, particularly with Red Dead Redemption 2’s apparently sterling critical acclaim and upcoming online component. Still, we do hope the devs and fans of this sandbox title can pull together and create a fun niche game.

Wild West Online Patching Out Factions and Releasing a Free Trial

The Wild Frontier of WWO is getting another new patch sometime soon and though we don’t know the approximate date, we do know the contents. The next update will essentially do away with its current factions, a redesign of the game’s town capture mechanics, and a Wild West Online free trial edition among other updates.

wild west online free trial

The free trial edition of the sandbox will offer the game for free with the exception of a couple of noted restrictions. Players will not be able to level up past level 20 and they will not be able to unlock achievements or receive related rewards. The post alludes to some other restrictions, but only lists those two for the time being.

As for the patch content itself, WWO will be axing the current faction system for a return to the Sheriffs vs. Outlaws mechanic. “While we don’t think this first release will check all boxes for all players, we will continue to tweak and fine tune it until we get a system that all players will be happy about,” elaborates the post after an editing pass we applied.

Town capturing is also getting a significant rework, with promise that the team to “do it right” this time around. Again, the post is light on specifics, but does state that systems like team balancing, correcting spawn locations and rewards are all due for adjustment.

The patch will also make a number of fixes to event rewards, weapons, and a number of other features. You can read up on what’s to come here.

Our Thoughts

Huh! Well, a free trial would certainly be a good addition to this game considering there are perhaps a lot of folks who are gunshy about starting their own life in the PvP Wild West. We’ll be looking forward to more specific details soon.

Wild West Online Outlines its Next Updates

The folks of the wild digital frontier of Wild West Online have been busier’n a jackrabbit chasin’ a rattlesnake, we reckon. Case in point: word on the direction of the next Wild West Online update, which came along for the ride of the sandbox’s most recent update.

wild west online update

At the tail end of the newest patch notes, the devs outlined a variety of things they’re working on improving. Among them are improvements to town capture events that change the location and layouts of faction camps; efforts to maintain faction balance so capture event teams aren’t so one-sided; improved PvP rewards; and tweaks to quests to make them easier to clear at low levels.

Additionally, WWO is shutting down the purchase of cosmetic decorations for Plantations and is making all decorations completely free ahead of changes to Plantations. If you spent money on any cosmetics, you’ll be receiving that currency back soon.

As for the current patch, most of what’s adjusted involves balance, item costs, and bug squashes. The full patch notes can be seen here.

Our Thoughts

We suspect that players of Wild West Online have different ideas on what should take priority in terms of updates to this sandbox MMO, but we defer to anyone who plays the game and their thoughts. Are these things that need to be focused, or are there other matters that are more pressing to WWO? Let us know in the comments.

Wild West Online Gets a Full Release on May 10

While the game has arguably taken a bit of a meandering road to get here, it can’t be denied that getting to a Wild West Online release date is an achievement. The devs of the Western-dressed sandbox MMO have announced the end of early access and the arrival of full release will be Thursday, May 10th.

wild west online release date

According to the announcement, Wild West Online will make its way to live with a number of new features which come at the request of the game’s testers. Features include the addition of two rival factions with global faction conflict and territory control; randomly occurring PvP events for rare items and rewards; more PvE content in the form of missions and quests; and expanded non-combat activities like hunting, farming, cooking, and brewing alcohol to name a few.

If all of that sounds like something you’re interested in, you can buy the full game now can snap up a number of rewards such as 10 garment bags full of cosmetics, 10 gun skin bags to dress up your weaponry, the early access version of the MMO, and a 48-hour head start when the game goes live.

A trailer showing off some of the new features in version 0.8 has hitched itself to the announcement horse. You can take a look at that below.

Our Thoughts

Clearly, the devs of Wild West Online have been hard at work and it looks like the fruits of that labor are about to be reaped. We would like to congratulate the team on making it to a firm release date and hope that the game is stable and enjoyable for sandbox MMO fans.

Wild West Online Discusses Changes to the Game

Wild West Online is gearing up for a new patch but before they release the patch they wanted to let players know what changes they could expect. All of the changes in their 11 point list are based entirely on player feedback. So, if there’s something about the game that bothered you before it might have made the list. With that in mind let’s take a look at what they have in store for us.

  1. Each crafting blueprint now gives individual XP. You’re not getting much for cooking food, but you’re getting a lot for crafting guns.
  2. Crafting takes time now.
  3. Events now starting at random times, so no more hardcoded timer between events.
  4. We removed number that shows how many boxes left at Stagecoach from both map and UI. so only thing you’ll see is for how long events will be going. As soon as player takes last strong box, event will end. So as long as event displayed on the map – there’re boxes there but you don’t know how many of them there.
  5. While you’re in a “safe zone” near unlocked hideout cabin, you won’t be able to shoot.
  6. When you aim at horse and not rider aiming dot in TPS is yellow not red.
  7. When you sprinting on horse and open inventory or gun wheel horse switch to walk cycle and slows down.
  8. You can’t deal stamina damage to horse that belong to player from your faction.
  9. We’re adjusting amount of stamina taken from the horse when you shoot her. so it’ll take less bullets to slow down horse now.
  10. We’ve added Daily and Weekly specials – specially curated small set of cosmetic items that you will be able to buy with in game dollars to TN directly and not get them randomly from the garment bags.
  11. Mining gives you small XP each time you get nuggets, metal ore or rocks.

Wild West Online

As you can see a lot of these changes are related to horses and crafting with a few other things mixed in. It will be interesting to see how these change the game once they’re introduced. The game just had a patch on April 2nd and it hasn’t been made clear yet when the next patch with all of these will be going live.

Quests, Hunts and Land Deeds Due to Wild West Online

The coming weeks should be full of new Wild West Online content if the latest forum post by the devs is any indication. The devs are working on several features for the sandbox title in response to player feedback, including the addition of quests, hunting grounds and more.

wild west online content

Quests are coming to the frontier of WWO in one of two flavors: recurring simple missions from town NPCs that reward crafting materials or blueprints, and farms missions that will require “significant efforts” to complete but will also guarantee some hefty rewards like garment bags, hideout cabin tokens, gun engraving kits, and rare gun skins.

Players will also get to take part in supply chain gameplay, where they’ll answer requests for materials from a supply request board, craft them, and then deliver them to NPCs in town. Supply missions are customized based on each player’s level and known blueprints and will reset daily.

WWO will also be adding hunting grounds for players to hunt bear and deer, redesigning town capture mechanics to make them more complex and less likely to be completed by a single individual, and introducing the first version of player land ownership.

None of these updates have been given any hard calendar dates for arrival, but the devs are working these features through this week for arrival to the game ASAP.

Our Thoughts

Sounds like the folks behind WWO have their heads down and are working hard, but we’re curious to know if any players of this game are pleased with the rate of content and updates to the sandbox. If you’ve got impressions, feel free to share them with us below.

Wild West Online Development Roadmap Released

File this under the, “We missed it because it was Christmas” news. The Wild West Online development roadmap for early 2018 was released on Saturday. It outlines what the team will be working on through January and February along with future plans as well.

In January they’ll be adding Factions and Faction Wars, public events, character progression, crafting, and more. Right now there are three skill trees to pick from that will improve your sustainability, your combat efficiency, and also allow you to unlock crafting recipes and perks for your character. You’ll be able to customize your character to match your playstyle and make them stand out in a crowd.

February will bring hunting, homestead ownership, campsites, and uh…scalping. Scalps can be used as a form of currency to exchange for noteworthy items. Brutal. The hunting grounds have been one of players most requested features to be introduced. Personally, I’m still not over the trauma of trying to hunt in Oregon Trail.

The roadmap then lists a Steam Release Winter 2018, though it would appear it means earlier in the year rather than later.

Post-release, during Q1 and Q2 of 2018 you can expect to find female players introduced to the game along with gangs/clans, a train robbery PvP adventure, trading between players, and something called the Viva Mexico Expansion. There aren’t any details on this expansion. The roadmap just teases it and says to come back in January. Which is exactly what we’re going to do.

From the sound of things, the Wild West Online development team have a busy few months ahead of them with a lot of new things being introduced to the game in a short period of time. If you’re looking forward to the release of Wild West Online be sure to vote for it in our MMOGames Reader’s Choice Awards. It’s up for Most Anticipated MMO of 2018.
