Rules of Survival is a free-to-play MMO battle royale game developed and published by NetEase Games. This game is a clone of PUBG with Asian visual stylistic.
The gameplay is simple and common for all battle royale games. You dropped with a parachute on an arena with 299 other players. No one has a weapon or armor - you have to find it after landing.
Before you start playing, you need to create a character. You can customize your hero's gender and appearance. Next, you will choose a mode, and the game will start.
You will land on the island with a parachute. After that, you can start a fight with other players or look for weapons and vehicles. You can also loot killed players and pick up their gear. Random supplies will appear during the match. These bonuses will contain items that can not be found in the game commonly.
The one game session in Rules of Survival continues about thirty minutes, but only in case if you are a winner. For other players, the match will take much less time.
The map is divided with a safe zone. Outside that space, sprayed a poisonous gas, and the safe area diminishes at regular intervals. If you are left outside the safe zone, you will start to take damage, and after that, eventually, you will die. You can't just find shelter and sit there - no one knows which direction will decrease. Your goal is to survive, but you must remember that at the end of the battle royale, only one person survives. It takes a lot of effort to be this lucky.
The game has two maps: Ghille Island for 120 players and Fearless Fiord for 300 players. Both of them have mixed terrain. It helps you because if you know how to use terrain features for your strategy, your chances of surviving to the end of the game increases.
If your goal is not to have fun and fight with other players, but to live till the end of the match, then you need to become a stealth master. No one can kill you if no one notices you. As with all battle royale games, you better avoid battles if you want to win. It might be annoying, but it works. You don't even need to look for loot and useful items. All that is necessary with this style of gameplay is the ability to quietly and quickly move into a safe area.
If you don't want to be invisible or you are often noticed when you're playing stealth, then you need to practice in combat. To do this, try to play several sessions in places of the most fierce fighting. This way, you can quickly get used to handling weapons, which are many in the game.
Rules of Survival has some different game modes: Solo, Duo, Squad with four players and a Fireteam with five players in. For the Fearless Fiord, the Blitzkrieg mode is also available. In this mode, you land with a pistol, armor, and backpack. But the common thing for all game modes is that the last person or team alive wins. Each of the modes has its pros and cons, so you should try everything and choose the one that you like best.
There are some different types of weapons in-game. You can arm with an Assault Rifle, a Shotgun, a Machinegun, a Sniper Rifle, and a Pistol, or you can use a melee weapon such a knife, crowbar, or flyswatter. Each of the guns has several types, so you have a range to choose from.
Using melee weapons is quite dangerous because most opponents have firearms. Use them only as a last resort. Finally, you can fight with your bare hands, but this is unlikely to lead you to success.
Rules of Survival is a game for fans of battle royale genre. You can try it if you're tired of PUBG and other representatives of the genre.
