Just two weeks after launch, Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode is climbing up the charts. The game hit over a million players on its first day and on Sunday the game had 525,000 concurrent players across all platforms.
The game has reached 3.7 million daily active users and with the Battle Royale segment of Fornite being free-to-play, it seems to be filling the niche on console for those who might have been waiting for some PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to arrive.
Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode mixes up the battle royale formula with crafting elements and destructible environments to add new layers to the mix. When Fortnite announced the Battle Royale mode, PUBG developer Bluehole mentioned “considering taking further action”.
At least now I know where all my friends went, they went to a cartoony build it up and shoot it down battle royale.
