Fortnite is the most popular video game right now. It was first released in 2011. Fortnite was not planned to be a battle royale game, but rather was originally planned to be a co-op 3rd person zombie shooting game.

Possibly the main reason Fortnite became so popular is because it’s free.

As the years went on, there was a new topic in the game added called ¨Battle Royale¨, when 100 players go into a match and kill each other until there is only one player left.

Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, saw that the genre was the most popular in 2017, so they decided to incorporate the battle royale mode into Fortnite so it is now known as ¨Fortnite Battle Royale¨.

In Fortnite Battle Royale you can build and collect weapons of different rarities and you can also play with friends.

The way you build is you need to collect materials, and the way you collect materials is you destroy rocks and trees and destroy them using the pickaxe you get when you spawn in.

In Fortnite you can also get with a friend and play duos. It is the same as solos but there are 50 teams of 2, and you can also get into squads which is 25 teams of 4.

Sometimes there are limited time modes that still apply to the whole battle royale aspect of Fortnite. They have twists like, for example, there has been a game mode called ¨solid gold¨ and the twist of the game mode is you can only get legendary rarity weapons and there is another limited time mode called 50 vs 50 which is pretty self-explanatory, there are 2 teams of 50 and the last team standing wins.

One of the ways you can sort of customize your character is by buying an emote/dance for it. This is another reason Fortnite is popular, its viral dancing emotes.

    Fortnite wasn’t actually released in 2011, it was announced in 2011, then went through multiple closed betas and changes to the gameplay and art style. It was officially released in 2017.
