Koushun Takami's notorious high-octane thriller envisions a nightmare scenario: a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are provided arms and forced to kill until only one survivor is left standing. Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan—where it became a runaway best seller—Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, a potent allegory of what it means to be young and (barely) alive in a dog-eat-dog world. A new translation by Nathan Collins.

Fortnite Battle Royale for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Mac transports gamers to an island that’s in the direct path of a strange and deadly storm. This free edition of the game is a quest for survival—as one hundred players get trapped on the island, but only one will ultimately survive. Players must explore their surroundings to gather resources, and then build protective shelters, plus locate weapons and loot (medical packs, potions, ammo, etc.)—all while attempting to defeat enemies in battle as the storm approaches, slowly making more and more of the island inhabitable. This unofficial strategy guide for gamers between the ages of 8 and 13 provides the tips and information needed to greatly improve their chances for survival. It includes proven strategies for defeating opponents using weapons, tools, resources, and structures. The guide focuses on the seven core elements of gameplay: 1. Character Section, Customization, and Improvement 2. Parachuting from the Battle Bus, and Choosing an Ideal Landing Location 3. Safe Exploration of the Island and Avoiding the Storm 4. Finding and Gathering the Best Weapons, Ammo, and Loot 5. Acquiring Resources (Wood, Brick, and Metal) 6. Building Fortresses and Structures 7. Surviving Combat to Become the Last Person Standing Because Fortnite: Battle Royale never offers the same play experience twice (because how the action unfolds depends heavily on the actions of the other 99 human players also on the island), this unofficial guide teaches players to adapt their offensive and defensive fighting strategies as needed to dramatically increase their chance of survival during each and every action-packed battle. This full-color, information-packed, 98-page guide is expertly designed to help first-time players greatly shorten the game’s learning curve and allows readers to abandon their “Noob” status quickly, while dramatically improving their fighting, building, exploration, and survival skills. With limited training activities and tutorials built into the game, Fortnite Battle Royale Hacks is a “must read” for Fortnite players.
