FORTNITE  – Battle Royale

While there isn’t any bad language in the game, its online nature could expose younger players to iffy language from random strangers in voice or on-screen text chat. For this reason the video game advises players are aged 12 and above

Fortnite: Battle Royale pits up to 100 players against each other in solo, duo, or up to four-player squads to see who can survive the longest against each other in an ever-shrinking map. The game has a cartoonish style, and the violence, while persistent, isn’t bloody or particularly gory, even though you’re using melee weapons and firearms to eliminate opponents. The game does force players to buy additional in-game items, such as cosmetic items, objects, and special animations (emotes), and they’re not required to play.

While the original, strategy-focused, single-player version of Fortnite (also known as Save the World) is a survival action game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows, and Mac, it’s the wildly popular last-player-standing mode known as Fortnite: Battle Royale that’s taken off and become a huge hit. There’s also a mobile version of the popular battle royale mode that lets portable players engage with and play against console and PC gamers.

FIFA 18 – World Cup Update

Fifa 18 is a 3D sports game available for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This game is rated age 3+.

Developed byEA Sports’ FIFA 18  World Cup Update is thesixth World Cup game made by the company. The game is the first of its kind available free of charge. However, the small catch is you need to own FIFA 18 for it to automatically download.

Modes wise, there are few surprises. You get a customisable World Cup finals recreation, and a personalised version of Ultimate Team. ‘FUT’, as it’s commonly known, is the biggest mode in sports gaming, and its international remix should appeal to both hardcore players and casual players alike.

New faces; Werner, Salah, Ederson, Casemiro, Shatov: over 20 new or revised faces have been added, with EA clearly listening to fan demands even at this stage of FIFA 18.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is a 2D fighting game available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. This game is rated age 13.

The game is based on the immensely popular Dragon Ball anime and manga franchise. Players duke it out with a variety of martial arts and sci-fi/fantasy powers in fast and frantic fighting combat. While there are lots of explosions and plenty of pummeling, there’s no blood or gore to be found. There’s a range of characters, good and evil, to choose from, and the game’s Story mode even brings the two sides together for a greater cause. There are a few lustful jokes and some very mild language in the dialogue, but nothing overly offensive.
