Fortnite’s new Battle Royale mode has been available to download for a little over a week, and it’s already seeing massive success in terms of player numbers.
Epic Games took to Twitter to announce that Battle Royale had reached 525,000 concurrent players across all platforms the game’s released on, hitting a new high for the game. If that doesn’t sound impressive enough, consider the fact that when the game launched, it brought over a million players.
Furthermore, the game attracted a massive 3.7 million daily active users across every operating region in the same weekend it reached its peak 525,000 concurrent players. This is an impressive amount, and it seems that the number will likely continue to grow, especially when you factor in Fortnite Battle Royale having beaten PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to consoles.
If you haven’t been following the game, Fortnite Battle Royale is a completely free mode that’s open to all Fortnite players to download. Its breathing new life into a game that previously had some confusing aspects to it, offering a new way to play that’s undoubtedly attracting a new audience based on the simplicity and accessibility of the new mode. The long and short of it is, it’s free, so you should give it a try. It looks like the general public is really into it so far, too.
