PUBG Corp. has dropped its lawsuit against Fortnite developers Epic Games, ending the legal battle before it truly got started.

Earlier in 2018, PUBG Corp., an affiliate of South Korean studio Bluehole Inc., had sued Epic Games for mimicking its title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), in Fortnite Battle Royale.

PUBG previously held the title has the world’s most popular battle royale game, but was quickly usurped after Fortnite released its BR mode in September 2017.

Since then, Fortnite has rocketed in popularity raking in hundreds of millions a month and undoubtedly stealing away a chunk of PUBG’s player base, particularly on PC.

In addition to claiming PUBG had been copied, it was also alleged that Epic Games had used the PUBG name in the promotion of Fortnite.

Both games use the Unreal Engine, which is a product of Epic Games but is used by PUBG. Unreal Engine is widely regarded as the industry standard for gaming engines.

However, according to the local court system in Seoul, South Korea, the case has been closed, with PUBG Corp. sending a letter of withdrawal to Epic’s attorneys.

Bloomberg also reports that this has been confirmed by PUBG and its law firm, although it is unclear if a settlement had been reached between the two parties.

Meanwhile, Fortnite has been pressing on taking over the games industry, earning a record-breaking $318 million in May alone.

PUBG is still a popular title, and its release on both Xbox and mobile devices has bolstered that, but there is little doubt as to who is number one.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
