This is hardly the first time tensions have been raised between the two companies over Fortnite's battle-royal mode. According to The Korea Times, the suit was originally filed in January with the Seoul Central District Court in Korea.

There's a lot to unpack here, so let's start with the obvious. It's also now the most-watched game on Twitch and YouTube. It's also rapidly become its own thing. The last person standing wins the match. At the time, the executive stated that the company would "contemplate further action" against Epic Games. This may refer to perceived similarities in the game's user interface and they could even be trying to push that the game mode has too many direct similarities, though would struggle to argue this in court when there is an terrible lot of prior material relating to Battle Royale, from previous games to films and beyond.

"PUBG" is also built on Unreal Engine technology, which is owned by Epic Games. It's been playable in some form since March of past year, whereas Epic Games, which had originally planned to make the Save the World mode the centerpiece of Fortnite, only pivoted to put more emphasis on its Battle Royale mode last fall.
