Remember that game announced in 2011 at the Spike Video Game Awards? Yeah, that one that former Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski–who recently announced his post-Epic games studio was shutting down–was on stage at the same awards show to talk about? Yeah, it’s now one of the most popular games in the world. Ironically, though, it left audiences a bit puzzled when it was first announced. It wasn’t until last September when Epic Games released a new mode, Fortnite: Battle Royale, for free that the game started making headlines.
Hot off the heels of the popular battle royale shooter, PUBG, Fornite: Battle Royale came out of the gates swinging, and now today, it finds itself sitting happily in the number one spot on Twitch’s home page. If you’re somehow unfamiliar with the game, it’s a cartoony game where 100 players drop from a flying bus high above a map, duking it out in a last-man-standing deathmatch to attain Victory Royale. It’s available now and is free to download for all PS4 players.
