Best New Battle Royale Games in 2020 to Keep on Your Radar

The battle royale genre only really came to the forefront of players’ minds back in 2017. With the release of the original PUBG, the craze was born, as players looked to eliminate one another and be the last-man-standing whatever the cost. Fortnite soon took the BR crown, and hasn’t let go of it since, despite competition from EA and Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends.

Now, as we move into 2020, we take a look at the next four games that look to try and steal Fortnite’s crown and reign supreme of the battle royale genre. So, without further ado, let’s check them out.

Valhall

New Battle Royale Games 2020

Valhall is battle royale set in a Viking world. A 50-player first-and-third-person perspective game, players will need to get up close and personal with their opponents if they’re going to take it down.

The story here is something along the lines of players must take Odin’s sword and stop the oncoming apocalypse from happening. To figure out which one Viking will take on the job, they murder each other until only one remains. Makes sense… we guess?

What makes Valhall even more interesting is its Wield Mjolnir mode. In this mode, players must try and seek down Thor’s legendary hammer, Mjolnir. After that, it’s a case of using this magical, flying hammer to put all other players in the game to rest. It’s kind of like the Thanos mode that hit Fortnite back in 2018 for the release of Infinity War. But you’ve got a flying hammer, so that’s a win.

Valhall is coming to Steam Early Access at some point in 2020, though no official release date has been confirmed just yet. No console releases have been announced as of yet, either.
