The numbers are pretty staggering. Battle royale MMO juggernaut Fortnite has over 250 million registered users. And in a survey last year, 41 percent of all active gamers said they’d played a battle royale game such as Fortnite, Apex Legends or PUBG in the past month.
Battle royale contests pitting hordes of players against each other all at once dominate the gaming world. Seeing one of these amazing worlds in action, it’s practically impossible not to think about how such a vast canvas is even created. The truth is that it isn’t simple…but the tools are probably a lot more accessible to even an inexperienced coder than you might think.
The Build a Battle Royale with Unity and Blender ($14.99, over 90 percent off) walks even a first time programmer through all the steps needed to create their own fully immersive game world and produce their own battle-royale-style game from scratch.
This 300-lecture, 55-hour course moves everyone from beginner to advanced users through nine levels of game creation, all in service of having a completed, playable battle royale game once you’re finished.
The training is led by a video game veteran and owner of game development studio Mammoth Interactive John Bura. In very clear, conversational lessons, Bura explores everything that goes into mounting a multiplayer world game like this, from the basics of C# programming and how to use the powerful Unity game engine to using Blender to help model and generate your characters in their full 3D glory.
Just follow the steps and Bura will show you how to harness artificial intelligence to drive your gameplay, what it takes to control and customize all the characters that populate your game, and how to generate unique environments and game objects to elevate the entire experience for players in your digital world.
There’s even a full explainer about how to create both local and global servers so players all over the world can dive into your game.
The Build a Battle Royale with Unity and Blender course is usually $199.99, but right now, this guide to building your own game is actually less than the price of buying some used games, only $14.99.
