The home quarantine around the globe has given us all the time to do things we couldn’t before because of our daily lives. Gaming seems to have surfaced as a viable option as it distracts us and can be done for hours. Online multiplayer is a great gaming genre as its not only competitive, but you can also play it together with your friends.

 

Multiplayer games can be played from both consoles and PC’s alike with cross-platform support in some games. Cross-platform in lucid terms means playing the same game with players on different systems for example: Your friend can have a PS4 while you have a PC and still be able to play the exact same game together.

The game UI is simple, clean and colourful. The game lobby allows you to select the game format you wish to play (solo, duo, team). The game's foundation is that 100 players land onto the map out of which the last man standing wins. The players are flown over the map on a ‘party-bus’ out which they jump on to different parts of the map via gliders.

 

The game has elements like building structures, carts and a plethora of weapons ranging from RPGs to bolt action snipers. The game has a season-based theme which brings along new regions on the map, new guns and new elements into the game. The game lets you customize your avatar by purchasing skins with the in-game currency called v-bucks.

 

The skins are purely cosmetic and have no gameplay advantage. The gameplay can be adjusted ranging from low to epic based on your system. The game supports high FPS on mobile devices as well. You can change your controls or map keys based on your preference. In teams or duo, you can speak with your teammates via voice chat. You can also revive knocked out teammates. You can build structures to protect yourself using the build feature.

 

The most important part of the game is the ‘storm’ that surrounds the map and keeps on closing in until the area playable becomes very small. The intention behind this is to bring the players closer and closer, increasing action. Being outside the storm will inflict damage resulting in your player dying.
