Project: Battle looks to take on PUBG Mobile, now available in alpha
- Developer NetEase announced Project: Battle, the developer’s third battle royale-style mobile title.
- As with other similar titles, Project: Battle brings players closer and closer together until only one player remains.
- Project: Battle is available as an alpha, with a final release date unknown.
Fortnite: Battle Royale and PUBG Mobile might be the most popular and well-known battle royale-style games, but they are far from the only ones. Take Project: Battle, for example, which is now available as an alpha build on the Play Store.
As with other battle royale-style games, the objective in Project: Battle is to take on dozens of other players and be the sole survivor. The map shrinks as a match progresses, which makes sure that matches do not drag on for too long.
Relative to Fortnite, the game also features cartoony visuals and the ability to build walls and floors to give you different vantage points or protection.
Unlike Fortnite, you do not gather various building materials in Project: Battle. Instead, you build stuff with quantum cube energy, which you can gather when you break any object in the game.
You can then use quantum cube energy to build things like radars, in addition to your typical walls and floors. Project: Battle also includes air and sea vehicles to compliment land vehicles, as well as the ability to camouflage yourself with your surroundings.
Developer NetEase might have included those differences to better differentiate the game from PUBG Mobile. Back in April, PUBG Corp. filed a lawsuit against NetEase and claimed that NetEase’s Rules of Survival and Knives Out closely resemble PUBG, even down to the “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” catchphrase used at the end of a match.
As such, NetEase must feel confident that Project: Battle does enough to separate itself from other battle royale-style games. You can find out for yourself if it does at the link below, which lets you sign up for the ongoing alpha.
