Is Fortnite the Greatest Game of All Time?

The change is constant as is the challenge

Since Fortnite introduced a Battle Royale mode in 2017, it has dominated the gaming industry. Fortnite is the most popular game ever with 500 million registered Fortnite accounts. Fortnite peaked at 44.7 million users in one day.

Fortnite has daily updates to the map and loot pool which helps keep players active. Fortnite keeps the game fresh so it never gets old and also attracts new players. Fortnite has always been at the top of viewership on streaming platforms like Twitch.

Another reason why Fortnite is extremely successful is because of cross platform. Cross platform allows you to play with people that aren’t on the same platform as you. For example Playstation and Xbox players can play the game together.

Fortnite has a lot of collaborations that offer cosmetics players are able to buy in the item shop. Fortnite has collaborated with companies such as: Lego, Marvel, Nerf, NFL, Ferrari, Stranger Things, DC Comics, Star Wars, and many more.

The main reason Fortnite is so popular is that it’s free to play the game and extremely accessible since it’s offered on many platforms like: Xbox, Playstation, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The game offers no competitive advantage when you spend money on the game making the game not “pay to win.” Fortnite also has an engaging storyline that continues throughout every season.

Fortnite offers a competitive side of the game also. Fortnite has daily tournaments and cash cups where you can earn money. Fortnite hosted a World Cup where the winner won three million dollars. 

Many players have a feeling of nostalgia whenever they play because lots of people grew up playing it everyday. Fortnite has dominated gaming in many aspects for years now and I think that domination will continue for a long time.

Fortnite holds the world record for the most concurrent players in a single game session–10.8 million!
