Estimates say that more than a billion adults in the world play video games. The mobile and PC gaming industry brought in a revenue of over $100 billion in 2020. The spearhead is the most influential video game in recent history – Epic Games’ Fortnite!
The sandbox shooter game has more than 350 million registered players worldwide and players of all ages love it. However, it’s most popular among players aged between 18 and 24.
Fortnite is completely free to play and the developers frequently come out with attractive updates to keep the game as engaging as ever.
Why Is Fortnite Unique?
What makes Fortnite different from any other game is that its creators constantly change the game to suit the tastes of the audience. It’s a game made for the players, and Epic Games is a master of adapting to the audience – no matter how massive it is.
According to Tim Sweeney, Epic Games’ CEO, Fortnite’s success made it possible to challenge the gaming business and press industry giants. Fortnite is now much more than a mega-popular video game. It influenced the gaming industry in a way that video game publishers had to renegotiate fees with online platforms – a move that took the power from marketplaces back to the game developers.
Another historic innovation was Fortnite’s ability to bridge the gap between consoles, PCs, and phones. Epic Games made the game available cross-platform and you can track your progress on your phone, PC, or console.
Battle Royale – The Mode That Changed Gaming
Fortnite took the idea of an online video game and transformed it into a service that delivers new features to the players almost daily. The most famous mode is the 100-play battle royal arena, in which players from all over the world play to survive against dozens of opponents.
Matches usually last up to 20 minutes and its action-packed nature and competitive spirit make it the perfect game for both casual gamers and professionals.
Whether you’re a team player or you prefer to ride solo, Fortnite is a game that mixes up the best of both worlds. One thing is certain: you will never get bored of this game!
