Developer and publisher NetEase has been making waves in the West for the last time when it was announced that they are working for Blizzard on the mobile game Diablo Immortal .
Now they also have a game that looks a lot like Epic’s popular Battle Royale title.
What is BuildTopia? At the first glance at the game, BuildTopia is not a comparison to Fortnite . The graphic style of the game, as well as many of the animations, are very similar to Epic’s BR hit. But also in the gameplay area, there are similarities.
The gameplay of BuildTopia is based on the classic Battle Royale genre, which is now widely used and found in many games. The game also makes extensive use of the construction features, which are actually exclusive in form to Fortnite .
Currently the game is in a closed beta phase. Now, NetEase has received approval for a launch of BuildTopia. You can watch a gameplay video here:

What are the prospects of success for BuildTopia? BuildTopia is not the first BR game that NetEase has released. With “Rules of Survival” and “Knives Out”, it has already launched two such games on the market.

BuildTopia is expected to be similarly successful as it incorporates elements from several extremely popular games. It should also be as accessible as possible and work well on older smartphone models to reach as many players as possible.
Whether Epic will act against this copy of her game is not yet known. PUBG, on the other hand, has tried to eliminate “Rules of Survival” and “Knives Out” in the past:
