Fortnite is free to play, You don’t have to spend a single dollar on the game. The only thing you need to do is download the Epic game launcher. In this launcher there will be an option available to download Fortnite. Download Fortnite and you’re good to go.
The game itself is free, but there are a lot of cosmetic items that can be bought in the in-game shop. Most of the players are really into dressing up their character, so they spend a bunch of money on the game. Fortnite estimated revenue from in-game purchase stands on a solid 1.5 Billion. That’s a lot of money!
3. Average play time
The average Fortnite player has an average play-time between 6-10 hours per week. That’s maybe not as much as expected, but it’s still quite a lot.
4. Amount of players
The biggest month in player count was in September 2018, there were roughly around 78.3 million players online in only this particular month. The peak for most players online at the same time stands on a solid 8.3 million in November. There is a grand total of 200 million players and this number is only increasing.
5. Multiple platforms
Fortnite is available on many devices, you can play it on your pc, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, Mac and mobile. All these devices together are making use of something called crossplay. Crossplay allows the users to play together with other players that have another device than the user. For example someone with a Xbox can play together with someone that plays Fortnite on his mobile. However, the crossplay still has some minor bugs and it could be a bit tricky to get it working. A downside is that the Switch and mobile players are limited to one game mode, while the other users can play multiple game modes.
A lot of celebrities are playing Fortnite or have been playing the game for some time. There are a couple famous musicians like Drake, Travis Scott and Marshmello for example who all played Fortnite. Of course there are also all the famous streamers like Ninja, Tfue and Myth. And don’t forget that even some professional athletes play Fortnite.
7. The story-mode
The story-mode of Fortnite tells the story of a world in which 98% of the human population has disappeared and those that remain are under constant threat from zombies, called “husks,”. As a player, you are one of the remaining humans and your task is to complete various objectives such as protecting other survivors from the husks and rebuilding aspects of civilization. Sadly the story-mode isn’t available for the Nintendo Switch and mobile players.
In the Battle-Royale mode of Fortnite you play against 100 other players. This can be done in solo’s, duo’s, squads or in a 50 vs 50 mode. The objective is to be the last one standing. The longer you survive the more experience and other rewards you’ll get.
It all begins when you get into a flying bus, this is an airdrop like ship. You’ve got to jump out of the bus and find a place to gather your loot. You can find loot anywhere in the map, some places have better loot than other places. There is a wide variety of loot, It goes from medical supplies to weapons and even trampolines. Once you gathered enough loot it is time to become the last one standing.
9. The Battle-Royale map
In Fortnite there is only 1 map that can be played, so it sometimes can be a bit boring and feel repetitive. The map keeps getting updates every season, every season has other looks to keep the game a bit refreshing. So now and then the staff will add some new places to find loot and battle your opponents.
Just like looting there are multiple materials that you can get from various objects in the game. Chop trees to get wood, break walls to get some bricks and destroy sea containers to scrape some metal. These materials are very important in Fortnite. You can use these materials to build your “Fort”. It’s very handy to just build a wall when getting shot, with-out materials the games are going to be very hard. Some materials are stronger than others, wood is the weakest materials, after that brick and the strongest material is metal. However wooden structures are faster completed than brick structures and brick structures are faster completed than metal structures. So you could make a big metal structure but it will take some time to be completed, or make a wooden structure that will be completed a lot faster but isn’t as strong as a metal structure.
In the end, Fortnite does have really good gameplay and with so many people playing it, the game is bound to become a classic. With consistent updates, solid gameplay and a high fun factor there is no doubt that this is one of the best Battle-Royale games out there. So, if a cartoony action packed game sounds good to you, give it a shot as you may enjoy it a lot!
