    Until now you could only squad up in Super Animal Royale on weekends, which wasn’t super useful to us here at TheMommyGamers since we play on Mondays! But with today’s update, we get to play squads all the time – though to be honest I might miss hunting down my friends in duos…

    Cosmetics: Make me look pretty!

    In addition to squad mode becoming permanent, there are TWENTY-TWO new super animal breeds to unlock. In case you’re new, super animal breeds are the skin variations you unlock by collecting DNA and serum while playing games. You also have milestones to hit, like kills or eating coconuts, to get special cosmetics plus special events like the current Super Summer Royale where you eat baskets of fruit during matches to earn new summer-themed items like a rubber ducky floatie or fruit kabob to murder your enemies with.

    Enter at Your Own Risk

    Mountains and caves are still a relatively new addition to the game but they’ve added more to find and even put together a nifty dev video about it.

    I’m So Exciiiiited!

    We’ve been playing Super Animal Royale pretty faithfully since the year started (see my first article on the game?). We even added it to the Twitch schedule – every Monday from 9 – 2 EST! It’s been great to see the game grow and get excited every time something new is added. We hope to see your names pop up in the game!

    If you want to check out the full patch notes you can find them on steam. Super Animal Royale is FREE to play! When you fall in love with SAR and want more please use our Humble Bundle link to pick up the full version and get all the extra goodies here.

    Super Animal Royale

    The cutest game of animal of animal violence you’ll ever see

    Another battle royale game? You bet your britches! Only this time we get to play as absolutely adorable creatures and collect weapon skins, clothes and accessories, and DNA to unlock more animals. Super Animal Royale takes place in a safari park gone all wrong and has a unique top down and cartoony gameplay that makes it unique in what’s becoming a saturated genre.

    Gameplay

    Gameplay for SAR is easy, but may take some getting used to for most players. The top down view gives you a good look at the playing field, but leaves enough room to hide. You aim by simply hovering over the enemy character with your cursor and clicking the mouse to shoot. Movement is standard WASD and weapon selection is 1-4. Remapping keys is easy, if you prefer to use mouse buttons like I do!
     

    You drop from the cargo carrying eagle and parachute onto the map. Traveling distance from drop to land isn’t a long time so going far from the path isn’t possible. Once you land you’ll need to find gear. You start with a melee weapon, a sword by standard until you earn other skinned items. There are slots for 2 guns and either bananas or grenades. You can wear level 1, 2, or 3 armor vests and collect up to 200 health juice at a time.

    In this game it’ll be you vs 63 other people, not the usual 100. Currently you can play solos or duos but squad mode is coming. There is a free demo version to play on Steam with the standard edition being $13 and the founder’s edition is $26, with lots of extra goodies.

    The Divine Verdict

    I saw this game one day on Twitter and had to have it. For those that don’t know, I’ve been a Fortnite Battle Royale player since it released and I love the genre plus the cartoonish art (vs PUBG’s realistic look). Super Animal Royale is simplistic and it’s relaxing to play for me because it’s no pressure just fun. It’s definitely going to be staying on my rotation for a while. Thank you to the devs for sending me a code to play the standard version, I loved it enough to upgrade to be a Founder. I look forward to all the updates of added skins and collectibles!

    Battle Royale: Fortnite vs. PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds

    Battle Royale: Fortnite vs. PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds

    Time has put these two 100-person survival shooters head-to-head. PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds and Fortnite have gained a multitude of attention and people are debating which one is better than the other. While everyone has their own opinion, we’ve looked into both of these games to look at the pros and cons of each game. Just note it was very hard to stay unbiased in this article, but it was certainly fun researching. Since everyone has a preference to which massive shooter they like, let’s duke it out and figure out which one stands the test of time. You can also shout out in the comments below and tell us your pros and cons or your go-to game!

    MODES

    Player Unknown’s BattleGrounds, A.K.A. PUBG, and Fortnite are very much the same, right? You couldn’t be any more wrong. You can pick between solo, duo or squads, but Fortnite kicks it up a notch and adds explosive modes with 2v2 and the newest game mode, 50v50. Now that sounds like an epic time! On the other hand, PUBG adds two different perspectives, first person or third person.

    Character customization is also a neat feature that PUBG has which allows you to pick a few different skin colors, hair color, and length along with your wardrobe. Granted, Fortnite has outfits that you can choose from as you level up or purchase in the store. In Fortnite, you are also randomly generated into a male or female each game.

    GRAPHICS

    Graphically, Fortnite is very cartoonistic, and the llama piñatas are a party filled with loot. No chocolate though, sorry. Weapons also are featured with various colors to let you know which one is better. Let’s say you have an assault rifle on hand and its green. You come across a boring grey one. Nope, pass. Because that blue or purple, better yet, that orange one is the bee’s knees! The general concept is grey, green, blue, purple and then orange (gold).

    PUBG is more worn down, rugged graphics that replicate an apocalyptic world for this setting, which does make sense giving the concept of the game. There are also two maps that I have noticed when playing, which means double the fun. Weapons, ammunition, and gear also glow golden color to show you where they lie. PUBG has a feature in its options button that will show you what is readily available for you to pick up so you can move on to a safe spot if needed.

    The circle closes off much the same, but Fortnite is certainly more dramatic with a purple wall that makes you feel claustrophobic when it’s right behind you. PUBG sneaks up on you, and then you feel the air rush out of your lungs, and you attempt to run towards it. Fortnite also has the lines thickened so they are clear to see.

    PRICING

    Fortnite’s basic edition is free-to-play for the Battle Royale version of the game. If you want more, the Standard Edition of Fortnite will run you $30. Standard edition includes seven piñata packs and four in-game banner icons. The Deluxe Edition will cost you $60, and you receive a rare starter weapon pack that includes four weapons and a trap, eight heroes’, an exclusive founders pistol on top of 33 piñata packs, 50 vault inventory slots, ten in-game banner icons. Lastly, ten XP boosts for you and another ten to share.

    PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds runs $30.

    PLAYABILITY

    Fornite is on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Fortnite is cross-platform play, and it’s great because someone could be on Xbox, a PS4, and someone on PC. There should be no issues matchmaking either! PUBG, on the other hand, has cross-playability on mobile (Android and iPhone), leaving PC and Xbox users to be all alone. The lack of cross playability on PC and Xbox also makes it hard to connect with other players. Rumor is PUBG will be on PS4 in the coming months, but will cross-play be in the works?

    Both recently have gone mobile.

    THE LITTLE THINGS

    The party bus on Fortnite does not show how many people have jumped off, PUBG does.

    There is no ax for materials in PUBG, where Fortnite, you have an ax for wood, stone, and metal.

    If someone is shooting, there is no building a hideout and running or hiding.

    In PUBG, red areas show on the map. Those areas are getting bombed, and you will wind up dead.

    Fortnite updates much more often the PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds.

    PUBG uses two different, and good sized, maps and randomly cycles through them. Fortnite only has the one, smaller map.

    You can hear people in the lobby before dropping off the plane. When a person launches off, you can’t hear them.

    Also, this is a multi-region setup, so you have players from all over the world on the server.

    You can’t hear people on Fortnite unless you’re in a party.

    You can drive certain vehicles in PUBG.

    END RESULTS

    Researching for this article was pretty hard regarding being objective and spending the $30 to play a game that I wasn’t sure that it was going to be worth it. I’m sure everyone has that same feeling when it comes to spending money on a game, and they hope it will be well worth their time. Granted, PUBG is fun and entertaining; there is something different about it, and honestly, it turns me away from the game. I much prefer spending my time with Fortnite and all the crazy Boogie bombs and other shenanigans. Let The Mommy Gamers know what your preference is in the comments
