In recent months, a video game has taken over the lives of over hundreds of millions of people and is probably the main reason as to why you never get a text back.
Fortnite Battle Royale is a similar version to the original Battle Royale concept which popularised by a Japanese film Battle Royale which is based on the book of the same name by Koushun Takami. The game begins with 100 players in a free for all mode; taking place on a big island full of different areas to “drop.” Dropping is a cruicial part of the game because there are high possibilities of someone dropping right where you do. There are multiple people per area but as more people die and the game progresses the map shrinkens, allowing for a more closed combat feel for the remaining players. Unlike many other games, players must scavenge their weapons and supplies while constantly trying to move towards a safe zone. The last player alive wins the game and now has the bragging rights of saying they’ve gotten first place in the game which to many is a BIG DEAL.
The game is hotter than ever and we don’t expect the obsession do die out anytime soon. Check out the video below which will give you a feel for the game. It might even make you want to buy it and hop on the trend!
