What Is Fortnite Battle Royale All About?
A Game Jam internal project at Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Royale, was never intended to run this long. In a game jam, both creative and analytical brains come up with game concepts and then quickly develop them over 1 to 3 days, on average.
From one of these meetings, the basic concept for Fortnite Battle Royale emerged, and three weeks later, the game’s development started. The team’s primary motivation for creating the game was to create a standalone, AAA product where you could explore, scavenge, and survive. The game eventually evolved into a centrally hosted, online platform that allows for micro-transactions due to a current trend in the video game business called “software as a service.” Initially a Steam early access game, Fortnite Battle Royale has recently switched to a free-to-play model.
A new character, a new weapon, and the ability to set traps on slopes are all part of the weekly Fortnite Battle Royaleupdate. Additionally, there are discussions on Fortnite Battle Royale for Nintendo Switch and a $100 million reward from Epic Games as part of 2018-2019’s Fortnite Battle Royale contest and the Fortnite World Cup.
Weekly notes on Fortnite’s version 4.4 are included in the Fortnite Battle Royale update.
