Epic Games just recently released the Battle-Royale mode for its base-building survival game and it seems that it has been very successful and popular among the gaming community as Fortnite Battle-Royale mode has surpassed 7 million players.
Epic Games announced through its official Twitter account that Fortnite Battle-Royale mode has surpassed 7 million concurrent players which is a big achievement since the mode went live less than two weeks ago on September 26. Furthermore, Epic has announced that Fortnite Battle-Royale mode now has Duos and supply drops.
Thanks to over 7 million of you who have played Fortnite! We want to keep the Battle Bus flying, so Duos and Supply Drops are available NOW.
As the name suggests, Duos will allow players to partner with another player for the match and the supply drops will fall from the sky in random locations.
However, PUBGs developer Bluehole Studio is not particularly happy with the Fortnite Battle-Royale mode.
We’ve had an ongoing relationship with Epic Games throughout PUBG’s development as they are the creators of UE4, the engine we licensed for the game. After listening to the growing feedback from our community and reviewing the gameplay for ourselves, we are concerned that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known.
Speaking of PUBGs, the studio behind the game is now worth over $4 Billion which is up five-fold in just three months. Also, the studio is in talks with Sony to bring the game to PS4, however, there are reports that Microsoft is looking to extend PUBBGs Xbox exclusivity.
Also, Bluehole has formed PUBGs Corp. that will oversee the game’s development moving forward along with its expansion.
Fortnite is a co-op survival game developed by Epic Games for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
