Fortnite: Battle Royale Mode Hits 1 Million Players On Day 1
They are off to an excellent begin.
It seems like Epic’s entry into the battle royale style has paid off in spades- their battle royale mode for his or her recreation Fortnite apparently managed to hit 1 million gamers on its first day (which was yesterday) alone, Epic shared on Twitter.
Going by the final reception to the mode on boards like NeoGAF, it feels like Epic has managed to actually nail the battle royale format with Fortnite– apparently, issues like destructible cowl (which stop tenting) make this a really compelling various to PUBG. It can also be, going by preliminary experiences, extraordinarily effectively optimized.
Of course, there are caveats to remember here- not like PUBG, which prices $30, Fortnite‘s battle royale mode is free to play for everybody. It can also be out there on three techniques as an alternative of only one (although PUBG will shut that hole a bit when it launches on Xbox One later this yr). Given PUBG developer Bluehole’s perplexing insinuation that Fortnite is unfairly ripping PUBG off, will probably be fascinating to see how Fortnite‘s battle royale mode continues to do within the coming weeks and months.
Over 1 million gamers have partied on the Battle Bus in the course of the first day of Battle Royale! Thank you and celebration on! 🙌🎉🚍 pic.twitter.com/Tdqnk8YClb
