So, for those of you new to the Battle Royale game or simply confused by how the whole weekly challenges work, here's a quick explanation.
When speaking with SportTechie, Slasher, a popular esports consultant, mentioned how Fortnite will likely face the same issues as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for competitive play, and how there will be a long journey ahead before it can be considered a 'tier two esport'. PUBG CEO tried to call out Epic for what they feel is a blatant ripoff of their game but due to the PUBG uses Epic's Unreal game engine complicates matters.
While Fortnite proved to be super popular, what truly broke through was the game's eventual free-to-play spin-off, Fortnite Battle Royale.
What is Fortnite Battle Royale?
Hip-hop superstar Drake has broken a new record in streaming - this time in video games. Epic Games has found this magic equation with Fortnite, a game that has everyone - gamers and not - begging for invites just to give it a spin.More news: Crown Prince Salman bragged Kushner 'in his pocket'
"I doubt any major publisher could have pulled off this kind of pivot in the time we ended up doing it", Zobrist added. The game is now a big driver of technical advancements for Epic's game developer toolset. "A lot of players just won't play Save the World", they admitted. Epic even flew out British YouTube personality and Twitch streamer Alastair "Ali-A" Aiken to demo the feature with a custom Fortnite Battle Royale video he made with help from the Epic team.
Two things. First, you don't actually need to find the treasure map first.
Epic turned the traditional promotional cycle on its head, so rather than releasing a CGI trailer 12-18 months from launch, they did so with 3 weeks until launch. The "Thank you" video actually began as an internal company meeting video. Getting an education and planning for a future is always good advice.More news: Vietnam Scraps South China Sea Oil Drilling Project
