One of the biggest surprises last week was the release of a Battle Royale mode for Fortnite. It’s turned out to be quite popular and next week, it releases free for anyone to play. If you haven’t checked it out yet, here is the official gameplay trailer.
As expected, the PUBG phenomenon is already impacting other developers with Epic saying they were big fans of Battlegrounds and thus built a similar mode within Fortnite. We’ve enjoyed our time with it so far and it’s a nice complement to the standard PVE offering from Fortnite. As an overall package, Fortnite is becoming more and more attractive and we believe it will grow into a bigger hit through 2018 when it eventually goes free to play.
