PUBG Developer Sues Fortnite Maker For Copyright Infringement

Fortnite Battle Star

While it appears that the formal legal filings related to this case have only begun in the last few months, some of you may remember that the PUBG team first alleged a year ago that Epic had copied aspects of the company's own battle royale game.

Another limited-time mode has been introduced called Teams of 20v2.

Epic did reference PUBG in the development of Fortnite's battle royale variant though, stating "We love battle royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version".

Both PUBG and Fortnite share an undeniable likeness to one another; last-man-standing shooters where 100 players jump from the sky and scavenge for items presents arguments for the similarity of the games.

Replay overturn plays key role in Warriors' Game 1 win
Some fans tried to point out that Smith's teammate Hill could've saved the game by making the free throw in the first place. It is the fourth year in a row that the Warriors have beaten the Cavaliers in the first game of the finals.

The shopping card follows on from the jetpack that was released last week and offers a new way for players to move around the map. PUBG and H1Z1 have an assortment of realistic vehicles that players can use to travel across the map quickly.

You've likely also noted the similarities between the two, and that similarity has not escaped the notice of PUBG, either, with the game's makers filing suit against Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite. The Teams of 20 v2 modes involves five 20-man teams battling it out against each other containing high drop rates with better loot. And if you've pushed your shopping cart right the way to the top of the hill and want to cruise on down, press the right stick in (otherwise known as R3) and you'll switch. Savvy players will know that you don't actually need to visit this map in order to collect the treasure, but that's where it is for all the completionists out there.

There's been some chatter about the mushrooms only being available in certain game modes or you can only see them we with shadows turned on.
