Fortnite Battle Royale

Check out Josh's essay about Fortnite. Does it really live up to the hype?

I play Fortnite Battle Royale at least once everyday. The thing I like about this game is how it is open world and you can build.

What is Fortnite? Fortnite is a free-to-play battle royale game developed and published by Epic games. It is a early access video game which means it hasn’t fully been developed yet and is still in development. So far the game has done very good. The update in february 2018 the developers reported they have 3.4 million players.

How well did Fortnite do? Well for starters Fortnite has earned 126 million dollars beating their rival game PUBG, With over 178,000 viewers on twitch and there rival game with 84,000 viewers. While Fortnite is still free on xbox one, ps4, pc, and mobile. PUBG is still charging there fans. $29.99 to buy the game on xbox one, pc, the game has not yet released on ps4.

How do you play Fortnite? Once you start a game in fortnite you load into a place called Spawn Island. After that you hop on the battle bus which will take you above the main island were the war begins. You jump out and land at a location of your choice. After that you find a weapon which will help you knock your enemies down to win the game and get a victory royale. It doesn't sound very exciting but it really is a accomplishment for many people. And it is still doing amazing to this day.

To conclude I want to explain how much I enjoyed making this review. My favorite part about writing this is researching the facts about Fortnite.


  1. Kia ora Josh,
    I have just spent time with my nephew, Hamish, he has just turned 10 and LOVES fortnite. When I sat down to watch him play he was very engaged and didn't have time to explain it to be so I have loved reading your explanation. When you play are you playing alongside friends online? Hamish was playing with a friend of his who lives in America! What is the main goal you are working towards in fortnite?
    Look forward to hearing your thoughts.
