PUBG sues Epic over Fortnite similarities

Share

An executive producer with Bluehole told VG247 previous year the company was concerned Epic Games - which owns Unreal Engine 4, the engine both games run on - would withhold engine upgrades to benefit its game.

The Korean Times reports that the PUBG Corp., developers of "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds", targeted the Korean subsidiary of Cary-based Epic, and is seeking an injunction from the Seoul Central District Court. Mastery of mining and building are crucial for success in the battle royale style game. It is worth noting as well that PUBG actually runs on Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4.

If PUBG is arguing a case that Epic Games stole content by simply making a game in the same genre, the developer will likely be unsuccessful. "Fortnite" debuted three months later, but had been in development for much longer.

There is no word on when the Shopping Cart will be added to Fortnite, but Epic has a history of announcing items via the news feed and releasing them in short order. Still, PUBG isn't backing down from its claims that Fortnite is a "carbon copy" of PUBG, and is continuing forward with the lawsuit.

Fred aware of Reds bid but his focus is on Brazil
Twice this year Manchester United have stolen Manchester City transfer targets, and Fred is a special talent close upon stardom. Fred , who has five years left on his contract with Shakhtar, is likely to cost United around £52 million.

The reasons for that are complex.

The game also sees up to 100 players land on an island, search for weapons and kill one another until one player is left standing. We still don't have any concrete information on how it moves, but it probably means that 1 player can push you around and both of you can achieve high speeds, white one shoots or is focused on shooting down enemies.

Another week, another set of challenges that Epic Games has put up to challenge players to accomplish various objectives in Fortnite.

An Epic Games representative said the shopping cart is expected to arrive this week, but declined to offer exact timing.
