Fortnite Battle Royale: what you need to knowFortnite was initially revealed back in 2011 and got its actual release date in July 2017. That was a six-year wait for expectant gamers who wanted to try out the brand new game. Since last year’s release, Fortnite has been available to play on gaming devices such as the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, as well as PC and Mac. Set in contemporary Earth, 98 percent of the world’s population has disappeared with zombie-esque creatures rising up to take over. Fortnite Battle Royale, a multiplayer version, sees players competing with up to 100 other gamers, either as individuals in four-man teams. They have to fight other players and avoid being killed to become the last man standing. What’s interesting about Fortnite Battle Royale is it allows cross-platform gaming, so players using an Xbox One can compete against someone on a PC for instance. It’s Fortnite Battle Royale, the multiplayer mode, that is available to play on mobile.

As of last night, the stream of the two games had nearly 600,000 concurrent viewers. The all-time Twitch record is over 1.1 million concurrent viewers. Whilst Drake and Ninja were playing on PlayStation and PC respectively and not mobile, the Twitch stream has served to hype up Fortnite Battle Royale ahead of its mobile release.
Why is Fortnite so controversial?Due to the huge gameplay behind Fortnite Battle Royale, with up to 100 players in a single round, it means that people have become prone to developing cheating software that will allow them to win against other gamers. Fortnite’s parent company, Epic, has taken to banning cheaters, as well as suing the developers of the software and the people that are using it. In one instance, Epic has launched a lawsuit against a 14-year-old in North Carolina. As well, recently Fortnite players have taken to social media to say their accounts have been hijacked by malicious hackers. Gamers have seen fraudulent payments made by hackers using the payment details saved on their Fortnite accounts. Epic said in a statement that it was aware of the continuing attacks. “Any players who believe their account has been compromised should reach out to our player support immediately," said the company.
