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.

    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.

    My name is Sam and I go to Greymain School. As I also play fortnite it was interesting to see the statistics against Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. Maybe you could say something about skins or building.
    Other than those few things I really enjoyed reading this blog post.
    Keep up the good work,
    Sam

  8. I think Fortnite is a really really really good game but I have never played it or seen a single youtube video on it. So I don't even know if fortnite is a really really really good game because I don't know how to play it. Theres a game called PUBG and its better than fortnite I've never played fortnite but trust me PUBG is better. You should try it out sometime

  13. Hey Josh!
    Awesome essay. I really enjoyed reading this information about fortnite. My cousin got me into fortnite AND PUBG. Just a quick note on your punctuation, to include more punctuation so that it makes sense. Also try not to play fortnite that much, looks like an addiction, but try to take brain breaks at times. Other than that, I really enjoyed reading this essay.

    God Bless,
    Sia.

  19. Hi Josh,
    I like the information you put in your essay. Next time you should make it look like you didn't copy the writing from the internet. I think you should make the words a little easier to understand.

  22. Hi Josh,
    I like the way you blogged something about Fortnite. I play fortnite with my friends at school. I think Forntite is better than PUBG because fortnites map is smaller and it is easy to find people. PUBGs map is bigger and it is hard to find people.
    I play on XBOX ONE. My name is tonganvikiing.

  26. Hi Josh,
    I really liked the way that you choose a topic that most people in the world and most kids know about. I also really liked the way that you put down a couple of steps of how the games works, how it starts and what you have to do through out the game ( shoot other players )and because I can relate to playing this game. I also really like fortnite I would say that I play most nights of the week and most weekends with a couple of friends. Something that I got from your blog post was that PUPG is not on ps4 yet and that you have to pay to play it, but that most likely because I like fortnite more. Keep up the good workHi Josh,

  27. Kia ora Josh, thank you for this enlightening post. You have given me everything I need to know to get started and to understand why people play it. The comments added above by other young people are also helpful, particularly where some have added more detail and some have disagreed with your opinion and advocated for a different platform.
    Well done all of you.

    I really like all the descriptive language that you have used in this piece of writing (like free-to-play & early access), along with lots and lots of facts. I also really like how you have added in a photo along with personal voice.
