NetEase's Rules of Survival scores 15 million downloads, Discord clears 87 million users, and King launches a Candy Crush AR lens for Facebook

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been the talk of the industry all year, and it was only a matter of time before other devs took notice and rushed out their own battle royale games.

And while most of them are destined to fail - especially once PUBG launches for real on mobile - NetEase's Rules of Survival has attracted 15 million downloads, as well as the interest of our readers.

The second story on our Hot Five is the news that Discord has cleared 87 million registered users and is currently growing at a rate of 1.5 million users every week.

Candy, food trucks and Harry Potter

Third up is the launch of King's latest augmented reality toy, a camera effect for the Facebook app that has players eating digital Candy Crush-style candies thrown at their open mouths.

And finally, Nukebox Studios is working with Tilting Point on an $18 million UA campaign for Food Truck Chef, and Jam City has scored a licensing deal to launch its own Harry Potter mobile game.
