What’s up gaming community? Today, let’s talk about Epic’s Fortnite and its popularity among gamers. Fortnite is a third-person shooter game that has taken over the hearts and minds as well as the time of teenagers worldwide. Released in 2017, Fortnite is without a doubt by many measures and metrics is the most popular video game in the world.
Let’s check out some stats of the game. Fortnite is one of the most downloaded games in the last 15 years. It has more than 350 million registered users making it the biggest game ever. However, Epic doesn’t share the number of concurrent players on the game but in April 2020 players logged in a staggering 3.2 billion hours. The game is experiencing steady growth thanks to consistent updates and its availability on all gaming platforms.
Fortnite’s fervor, craze, and compulsive behavior have the elements of Beatlemania, opium intoxication, and Tide Pod Challenge. The fanaticism and urge to win the battle royale and reach the Tier 100 in a season are mighty strong. Once you are deep in the rabbit hole, you adopt an alter ego and start blazing guns to shoot your enemy down. There’s no going back!
If you are living under a rock, the game is a free-to-play battle royale where a hundred players are dropped to an island. The goal is to survive and kill others till the last man standing. Players are forced into an ever-shrinking area by a storm and the last player to survive wins. You can get your hands on weapons, healable, and armors along the way. Another significant aspect of the game is the hasty construction of forts, towers, and ramps. Does that ring a bell? Yup, a cross between Hunger Games and Minecraft.
The cartoonish violence, hasty fabrications, visually astounding skins, and awesome dance moves of the game are addicting. The urge to be at the top is what keeps you going. Are you ready to step into the Rabbit hole? Let us know in the comments below.
