PUBG is a slow methodical sim-like game that has FPP ADS even in TPP mode. H1Z1 is a fast paced frag fest that is generally played TPP with TPP ADS though some switch to FPP indoors.

Basically if you watch a match of high level H1Z1 and then watch a match of high level PUBG you will realize that the minute to minute gameplay is completely different even though the mode itself is very similar.

FNBR is TPP with no FPP ADS or cam switch unless you are using a scoped weapon. The overall feel of FNBR is closer to H1Z1 than PUBG. Once vehicles are added it will feel even more like H1Z1 as they will speed up minute to minute gameplay.

Thanks, makes sense.

I'm surprised so many games stick with TPP, it's so cheesy (for PvP)

I downloaded this on PS4 a couple of days ago but couldn't play it as I needed to buy an early access pack (can't remember what it was actually called), does this thread mean that it's now out of early access on PS4 and therefore free to try?

It's 1080p on the pro but the framerate is rock solid and it has a few graphics options turned up somewhat.

It's solid 30fps on the pro. Don't know about the base model sorry.

I still have it downloaded and it seems to be OK apart from asking me to buy the early access pack. You may as well download now if you're waiting for it to go free.

How many? TPP has taken a battering over the last 15 years, there has been hardly any mainstream games outside of Gears of War and Uncharted and both of them aren't true third person shooters, more over the shoulder.

Ok I probably exaggerated a bit, but I thought all the BR games are (primarily) third person. I know PUBG added first person now.

It's just kind of frustrating when you find a decent game and can only think "this would be even better if people couldn't see around corners". Drawn to Death was the most recent one for me.

It's really simple to use and you can do so much stuff with it.
In the late game you always see some creative fortresses where players will hang out.

Probably, although I don't think we know for sure.

As a completely uneducated guess I'd think they're fully focused on leaving early access and not even started on a PS4 version yet, in which case a timed exclusivity deal might not be finalised yet (and will become more expensive as Bluehole realise that other Devs are ready to steal their lunch on PS4).

Or more likely the deal is already done and this makes no difference \_(ツ)_/

Yeah I can see where you are coming from because I started online gaming playing SOCOM PS2 and spent many years playing FPS games and thinking "man I wish this was a TPS"

I don't think the FP view in PUBG feels good to play at all yet, I do like FPS games but PUBG for me is still vastly superior in third person even with folk waiting behind a wall for me.

It is part of the games mechanics though. Outside of these kind of games look at rainbow six siege etc, it is part of the mechanic. You have to be very careful when going around corners, it is part of the skill of the game.

Item and progression is carried across platforms as long as you link your PSN account and Epic account.

Epic's [very limited] number of support articles for PS4 seem to imply it is compatible by virtue of their being an article titled I am having trouble playing with keyboard and mouse on PS4 and the answer not being, "this is not supported, use a controller".

It did/does appear to have some problems in menus however where no cursor appears. Not sure if this has been fixed but I'll give it a go.

I guess controllers have super heavy assistance as a result?

Can anyone confirm that keyboard and mouse is native and usable throughout the game now [and specifically in this PvP mose]?

Can't find a definitive answer on this (beyond it being limited to 30 max on consoles).

DF tested it at launch and reported the PS4 version to be performing poorly and indeed below the XB1 version but have not revisited it. Players themselves have reported performance improvements so I guess some gains have been made?

Fortnite is not free, the Battle Royale mode will be free from tomorrow.

Fortnite itself is planned to go F2P sometime next year (iirc)

The main game is in early access for $40. Theyre selling the early access copy at retail. When the full game is complete, in 2018, it will be f2p.

This side mode will be entirely free to play on all platforms when it is released tomorrow.

Yes, although it will be f2p later if you can wait. Don't think there is a release date for that yet.

They must have signed some kind of deal with MS and I would be very surprised if a minimum term of console exclusivity is not dictated (probably 6 or 12 months). Especially if MS is providing development support.
