Fight to survive in the best battle royale games on Android

Crush the competition at home or on the go.

Named after the 2000 film Battle Royale, the battle royale genre started with players modding survival games but has since become the core concept of numerous hugely popular titles, including some of the best Android games. Players compete solo or as part of a small team to kill off the competition, usually on a rapidly shrinking map where they'll also scavenge for equipment and resources. So if you're looking to test your skills and want to test your skills anywhere, these are the best battle royale games on Android.

Call of Duty: Mobile

The first-person shooter Call of Duty franchise got into battle royale by including the mode in Black Ops 4 in 2018, then made it a major part of its mobile game when it launched in 2019. One hundred players can compete on classic maps from the Black Ops and Modern Warfare games, either solo or as part of a two- or four-person team, with each player choosing their special ability. Try out the various modes and unlock characters and weapons from the series.

Free with in-app purchases at Google Play Store

Compete in 100-player battle royale battlegrounds, sniper battles, and team deathmatches on iconic maps from the shooter franchise's history. Earn gear to customize your loadouts for future matches.


Not every battle royale is just about shooting 99 other players to death. Some of them, like FOG, make an effort to introduce elements from different genres, like RPGs and MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arena). Another nice breath of fresh air from FOG is the medieval-styled fantasy setting, a pleasant departure from the same old battlegrounds found in games like Fortnite and PUBG.

The goal in FOG is to, well, survive the encroaching fog. You'll have to use all of the magical skills available to you, get sweet weapons and armor, and know when to fight and when to flee to survive and win in these fast-paced 30-man battles. FOG is free-to-play, blissfully free of ads, but does monetize through in-app microtransactions.

A fantasy-styled battle royale with RPG and MOBA elements, FOG takes the gaming trend of the day to a magical new world.

Garena Free Fire

Fifty players must compete to survive in 10-minute matches that start when you parachute onto a remote island. You can hide from your opponents to ambush them or drive vehicles around the large maps looking for safe places and weapons. You can also compete in a 4v4 game mode, where you'll need to purchase weapons to defeat your enemies. The game constantly introduces new content, like a Street Fighter collaboration last July.

Choose from a wide variety of characters ranging from a DJ to a robot and use their special abilities to defeat your opponents in 10-minute 50-person matches across maps with complex terrain.

PUBG New State

The first true battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is wildly popular on consoles and mobile. So popular, in fact, that the mobile version spawned its very own upgrade with PUBG New State. The original PUBG Mobile was a port handled by Tencent, admirably enough. New State, however, was developed for mobile by PUBG Studios and boasts a few exclusives to set it apart from Mobile.

The core gameplay of New State is very similar to Mobile, but the graphics are considerably improved, there's a new map to play on, and there have been some tweaks to the game mechanics to keep things fresh. Seasoned players can think of New State as an expansion to Mobile. It's bigger, it's better, and it puts a fresh coat of paint on the OG battle royale. Like PUBG Mobile, New State is also free-to-play and monetizes through in-app purchases.

Higher-quality visuals, new maps, and new mechanics put PUBG New State on the road to eclipsing its younger brother.

A relatively unique take on the battle royale format, at least in terms of presentation, ZombsRoyale mixes things up with its 2D graphics and top-down gameplay. Much like other games in its genre, though, ZombsRoyale is also a survival race to the top against 99 other players with multiple modes and maps to conquer. Play solo, in duos, or in a squad (auto-matching is available if you don't have a full four-stack) to suit your social preferences.

True to its name, there's also a unique Zombies mode, which has all the other standard PvP madness plus the need to keep a horde of zombies at bay while you try to win. There are also limited-time modes that rotate in and out, loads of maps, and over a thousand cosmetics to customize your little avatar. What's more, the gameplay is simple and easy to pick up, so this title is suitable for adults and kiddos alike.

ZombsRoyale is currently experiencing some temporary login issues for some players. Still, the developer has historically been quick to clean these things up, so don't let that keep you from trying this free-to-play gem.

Free w/ ads, IAPs at Google Play Store

A 2D top-down battle royale? Yes, it is possible and it's fun.

Ready to rumble?

New battle royale games are coming out constantly, so keep checking back for updates to this list. We're particularly looking out for the release of Apex Legends Mobile. Since all of the best battle royale games for Android are free, you can try them and see what you like most. Also, if you have any favorites that we missed, let us know in the comments section.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
