Are players churning from the well-known game titles and converting to the Fortnite craze?
Fortnite has gained a lot of ground in the Battle Royale market since the mode's release on late September 2017. In fact, the game's first two months saw nearly no traction in terms of hype.
While avid members of the gaming industry have expressed their love for the title based on its unique graphics, easy-to-use building system, and developer support, Fortnite has also reached far and wide across the general public and popular culture over the course of its lifespan.
"It was one of those things where, if I was doing well in school, putting in the time and effort there, in soccer as well, that I would be rewarded with playing as many games as I wanted". However, it's now trailing behind Fortnite with stream time on Twitch, with Epic's battle royale game shooting up the ranks. This deal that Amazon Prime and Twitch Prime have together is incredible. In turn, that helps boost the popularity of Fortnite,while also advertising the perks of the Unreal Engine.
If you're a Battle Pass holder in Fortnite, the weekly challenges provide you with a bunch of extra fun and plenty of extra rewards to boot.
Fortnite is set in present-day Earth, where most of the population disappears in a massive, worldwide storm. The other big battle royale game, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, has this feature fully implemented as it's always good to know how you got killed, how one messed up, and how to prevent it for future matches.
One of the hottest games on the planet is Fortnite. Competitors must find the items and form strategies to achieve the mode's main goal- be the last person standing. Tournaments range from the most casual of players to the best pros in the game.
Speaking to Glixel about the success of the game, Epic founder Tim Sweeney confirmed that the "majority" of the 700-person team at Epic is working on managing the breakout success, and that the situation certainly isn't the norm.
