There’s no doubt that Battle Royale was the most popular genre of 2018, following the record-breaking success of Fortnite and on a slightly smaller scale, its predecessor, PUBG Mobile. Like what usually happens in the Android ecosystem, any formula for success is quickly copied over and over again. This case is no exception, with an enormous selection of similar games that have been coming out of the woodwork for a long time now. To put a little bit of this chaos into order, we’ve created a list of the most successful Battle Royale games on Android in 2019.

Cyber Hunter

Originally known as Project Battle, and after multiple limited betas released throughout 2018, we can finally enjoy the final version of the game. Although it’s limited to the Asian market, it includes English as a language option, and can be played internationally without geographic limitations. It has Fortnite-style written all over it, letting you construct defensive buildings. [Download]

Sausage Man

Sausage man had to be on this list, if only for the simple reason that it’s not everyday we come across a fighter sausage. Well, not every single day. It’s a strict PUBG clone that releases 100 weenies on an island full of weapons, vehicles, and buildings to paraglide off of. [Download]

Knives Out

n

NetEase knows how to take full advantage of the situations, and as seen in the half-dozen titles from the genre that it currently has published. Knives Out is the most similar one to PUBG Mobile, offering the exact same premise, with the added bonus of being able to customize the details of the hub. [Download]

Battlelands Royale

n

Not everything is going to be an exact copy. Battlelands Royale uses isometric perspective and offers a much lighter experience. Its big-headed characters and low-poly graphics almost make you forget that you’re participating in what’s essentially a massacre. After all, these games are basically a bloody survival of the fittest. [Download]

Survival Heroes

If Battle Royale is the top genre, then MOBA isn’t too far behind. The game from Snail Game was aware of this fact and had the great idea to merge both genres into a single game. It releases you on an island, but instead of controlling the action as if it were a third-person action game, it’s offers a closer experience to games like Arena of Valor. Abilities with cooldown, unit deployment, and a lot of shortcuts to come out a winner. [Download]

Ride Out Heroes

n

Ride Out Heroes also goes for a hybrid formula inspired by Realm Royale from Hi-Rez Studios. Instead of offering equal conditions, you have different characters with different skills available. This, along with its enticing graphics and a look that’s half-way between steampunk and epic fantasy make this game unique. [Download]

Rules of Survival

n

NetEase also wanted to jump on the bandwagon with Rules of Survival, which ended up being a pioneer by offering battles for 120 players, even more than the original PUBG. Plus, its constant updates have loaded it with additional game modes that make it stand out from other more conservative concepts. [Download]

Creative Destruction

n

Without a doubt, this is the most widespread Fortnite clone on Android. The entire formula is copied to a t, including its updates by seasons, the destruction of elements in the setting to get resources and the building of ramps and defensive walls. That said, it doesn’t have the same monstrous technical requirements as the title from Epic, which is something. [Download]

Free Fire

n

We’re only going to say one thing: Free Fire – Battlegrounds is currently the most downloaded Android game on Uptodown, with over 30 million downloads. If that tidbit of information isn’t enough for you, the technical requirements are miniscule and it can run well on low to mid-range devices. Plus, it’s updated regularly and it offers a worthwhile game experience. [Download]

PUBG Mobile

Obviously, it was inevitable to mention the official title developed by Bluehole in collaboration with the one and only Tencent. It’s practically the same experience as you’d get from playing its version for PC and consoles, including the maps and weapons from the original title. Plus, it doesn’t stop offering new content and collaborations as unexpected as the Zombie mode backed by Capcom and their Resident Evil saga. [Download]
