Without a doubt, Battle Royale has been the trending genre in recent years on the heels of the record-breaking success of Fortnite and, to a lesser extent, its predecessor PUBG Mobile and the game modes included in CoD Mobile. Like what usually happens in the Android ecosystem, it doesn’t take long for any successful formula to be replicated as more and more studios try to cash in on the success before it’s too late. 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 bring some order to this chaos, we’ve put together a list of the most successful Battle Royale games on Android in 2021. 

Apex Legends Mobile

In early 2019, EA and Respawn Entertainment revolutionized the battle royale genre with Apex Legends, a free-to-play battle royale that added new elements to the genre. After several rumors, it was finally announced that in 2021 we would finally see the mobile version of the game. In spring 2021, the first betas began in India and the Philippines, but it’s only a matter of time before we get our hands on the global version in the rest of the world. [Download beta]

Free Fire Max

A new installment of the most downloaded Android video game in the world is something that generates a lot of expectations. Free Fire was in need of an in-depth update, and here it is: better graphics, higher resolution and various visual effects that you can activate at will. Aside from all that, the game remains the same, so in reality, we could almost call it a remastered version. Currently, it’s only available in certain countries including Bolivia, Malaysia and Vietnam. [Download beta]

Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier

Not even in our wildest dreams could we have imagined that we’d have a battle royale set in the most iconic installment of the Final Fantasy saga. It’s a prequel set 30 years before Final Fantasy VII Remake, where you’ll play an apprentice soldier on his journey to join the elite warriors of Midgard. A closed beta was released in June 2021 and throughout the year it’ll be released for everyone [Download beta].

PUBG New State

PUBG Mobile continues to be a worldwide revolution that consistently receives new content with each new season. New State is the saga’s highly anticipated leap forward on mobile devices, which takes you several years into the future to offer a new game map (called Troi) and a host of new weapons and customizations. After initial testing, more than 40 million users have pre-registered for the final version, promised for late 2021 and with a release date set for October. [Download beta]

Super Mecha Champions

Super Mecha Champions adds one incredibly interesting element to the formula — the possibility to pilot gigantic robots that have fallen from the sky for a limited amount of time. You can make them appear sooner by collecting objects or defeating other enemies. This feature, along with its original anime aesthetic, makes it one of the battle royales that’s best managed to stand the test of time. [Download]

Omega Legends

One of the biggest surprises of the year is none other than a Fortnite clone for Android that solves one of the main problems in the game from Epic: the need for a high-powered smartphone in order to play. Although, visually speaking, its source of inspiration is obvious, the Apex Legends-style hero shooter component with characters with different abilities makes it a fantastic alternative in the subgenre.

Royal Crown

Right off the bat, you can see this one has a bit of a different concept. All you have to do is take a look at the graphics which look like they were taken straight out of the Ragnarok Online saga. In fact, its combat system is more similar to a MOBA or an MMORPG than an action game, but this combination is exactly what makes it so awesome. [Download]

Cyber Hunter

Originally called Project Battle, and following several limited betas released throughout 2018, we finally have the chance to enjoy the final version of this game. After several regional editions, it finally made the leap to a global version that can be played internationally without any geographic limitations. It has Fortnite-style written all over it, letting you construct defensive buildings. [Download]

Bullet League

Who said battle royales have to be three-dimensional? Bullet League brings you battles between 30 participants in 2D settings full of platforms. It’s a classic concept applied to a new genre. The result? An extremely fun game! [Download]

Knives Out

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

Not everything is going to be an exact copy. Battlelands Royale uses an 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 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

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 halfway between steampunk and epic fantasy makes this game unique. [Download]

Rules of Survival

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

Without a doubt, this is the most widespread Fortnite clone on Android. The entire formula is replicated to the letter, 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

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 minuscule 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]
