Last month, Epic Games released the Battle Royale mode for its survival game Fortnite which is getting a really good response from the players across all platforms and it is still going strong.
Developers at Epic Games have announced that the Fortnite has successfully manged to cross 7 million players count after the release of Battle Royale mode. The new survival mode is inspired by popular shooting title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds where one has to survival the round as the last man standing.
The Battle Royale mode was released almost two weeks ago as a free update for those who own the base game and it achieved the milestone of 7 million concurrent players. Apart from the achievement, the developers revealed that they have rolled out two new features, namely; Duos and Supply Drops.

The new feature Duo allow players to enter the battle royale as partners, while the supply drops will be falling from the sky with best possible loot items in random areas of the map. However, the loot items will be hard to grab since every player on the map will try to do the same.
The game mode is quite similar with the shooting-survival game PUBG it seems that the designer Brendan Greene is not happy with this mode and will keep eye on the mode which appears to ‘replicate’ the PUBG experience. And his statement indicated that he may take some action against the Epic Games over his concerns.
Fortnite is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more updates!
