Fortnite is an online Video Game created in 2017, developed by Epic Games. Its initial release date was on July 25 2017. The game’s popular game mode is a pvp game mode called Battle Royal. It is a game mode where 100 online players get together in a match and eliminate each other with guns spawned around the map. Unlike other Battle Royal games, Fortnite allows players to build their fort to stay protected from other players. To even out the game the fighting zone shrinks and if you are caught in the storm you loose health. The last person alive wins the game. After you win, Players have the option to taunt other players by preforming dances called emotes. Some popular emotes are the “Take the L” and the default emote.
The game is compatible with many different platforms. Players can download Fortnite on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, iOS, Nintendo switch, Macintosh operating systems, Window, and Microsoft. Fortnite has now allowed limited androidd users to download a beta version of the game. Many gamers play this game because Fortnite has over 125 million players across all platforms.

Many think Fortnite will not fall off due to its weekly updates. Epic Games have put out new updates to improve the game so it will be more enjoyable every week. They have provided a reward system called the “Battlepass” which players can purchase for 950 vbucks. The battlepass allows players to receive rewards as they level up . Rewards from the battle pass can be emotes, skins, and other cosmetics. Fortnite also allows players to do weekly challenges to earn battle stars which level up your battle pass. 10 of those battle stars allow players to rank up one tier and there are 100 tiers. Almost every players goal is to reach tier 100 before everyone so they get on their “Fortnite grind”. Vbucks are the in-game currency that can be bought in packs. V bucks allow players to purchase items from Fortnite’s daily item shop.
