  • PUBG sues Epic over Fortnite similarities

If you have been anywhere near the Internet over the past few weeks then you will undoubtedly have come across either PUBG or Fortnite, the two battle royale games that have taken the gaming world by storm. But the development studio behind PUBG has accused Epic Games, Fortnite's creator, of copying its intellectual property, according to a BBC report.

A while back, Epic stated that traditional vehicles would not be introduced to Fortnite, and we'd argue that shopping carts falls within those parameters. PUBG and H1Z1 have an assortment of realistic vehicles that players can use to travel across the map quickly.

Mooney also added in another comment within the post that information like this will be shared around a week in advance in the future instead of just before the challenges go live like today while adding that Epic Games slipped up in this regard.

The hard difficulty Fortnite challenges net players ten Battle Stars, while the regular tasks reward fans with five Battle Stars. You can either push it around yourself and move faster, or you can have a teammate ride shotgun while you control the shopping cart. The allegedly infringing material: Fortnite Battle Royale, a standalone title borrowing the core concepts - and, allegedly, more detailed gameplay and user interface elements - from PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and shoehorning them into what was originally a cooperative sandbox title dubbed Fortnite Save the World. Mushrooms will be available in the Moisty Mire region if you want to look for them during your games.

Mushrooms are a handy thing to find because they will replenish 5 shield, no matter what your shield bar is at.
