Epic Games have just announced that the Battle Royale segment of the free to play title Fornite, has officially hit 10 million players since launch.
It’s a pretty significant number especially considering the mode the mode originally launched apart of the paid early access program of Fortnite and only two weeks ago was made open to the public. Perhaps the free-to-play model is how gaming could evolve in the future?
While PUBG was the originator of the battle-royale craze, Epic Games saw the opportunity to benefit from the hype and released the mode both as a free-to-play – in retrospect, it was quite possibly the best thing the studio could’ve done.
‘Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.’
