PUBG Corp Is Actually Suing Epic Games for Fortnite Battle Royale

PUBG Corp Is Actually Suing Epic Games for Fortnite Battle Royale

So, if you want to take on the Fortnite Week 5 challenges for yourself, you can use this article as a benchmark and hopefully complete all of them this week!

It may be time to pick a side when it comes to your favorite battle royale as PUBG Corp has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Fortnite creator, Epic Games, in Korea.

PUBG introduced its game past year and it became a huge hit as players embraced the "Hunger Games"-style concept in which 100 players race to kill each other until there's a sole survivor".

Mooney also added in another comment within the post that information like this will be shared around a week in advance in the future instead of just before the challenges go live like today while adding that Epic Games slipped up in this regard.

Paul was sorely missed in the third quarter of Game 6 where the Warriors turned a first half deficit into a blowout victory. On Monday morning, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala was having a hard time being sidelined deep into the playoffs.

"We filed the suit to protect our copyright", the company told the Korea Times.

So when Fortnite - a game about building shelters and fending off zombies - suddenly introduced a free-to-play battle royale mode, Bluehole was understandably concerned. Both companies are also partly owned by Tencent Holdings, China's internet giant.

The issue itself is quite tricky in nature because the developers of both games are partners in business, and PUBG utilizes Epic Games' game engine. The previous record of 3.3 million simultaneous players was set by PUBG. More than half of "Fortnite" watchers were tuned in to popular streamer Ninja, a former "PUBG" player who ditched it for "Fortnite" earlier this year. It will also address the way the game handles vehicles that are far away from the player as well as parked vehicles, which are now too demanding on players' systems. "PUBG" players have complained often about frame-rate problems and slowdowns, a critical flaw in shooter games that depend on an avatar's fast and fluid motion.
