Fortnite, originally titled Fortnite: Save the World, is a Battle Royale that took the world by storm after its release in 2017. It didn’t pioneer the Battle Royale genre, as much as fans might claim, that distinction going to earlier games such as Day-Z and H1N1. However, it is inarguable that Fortnite was the foremost factor in making Battle Royale games the industry juggernaut it has now become.

Epic Games was also a pioneer in making a cross-media cultural platform. Fortnite now hosts many non-gaming-related events such as art exhibitions, music festivals, and concerts. With franchise crossovers with such cultural staples as Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Toy Story, Assassin’s Creed, Drake, Travis Scott, and many other celebrities and franchises, it’s no surprise that Fortnite has ballooned in popularity to the point that it’s ubiquitous on almost every streaming service. It’s safe to safe that no gamer under 30 will be unfamiliar, despite their opinions about the game (flossing aside), with Fortnite.

The core gameplay loop is relatively simple. 100 players are dropped onto a map, eliminating other players until there’s one player left standing. While it’s no different from other Battle Royales in this foundation- Fortnite spices things up by adding a building mechanic, which adds verticality and unpredictability to gunfights and clashes. Mastering the game takes years of practice as the combination of gunplay, resource conservation, and building makes for a compelling and (as much as Fortnite haters will protest) challenging gameplay.
