Fortnite Is Far From Dying

Fortnite Is Far From Dying

By Jacks Lancaster, Reporter

Pretty much everybody has heard of Fortnite, even parents. It has become the face of video games. Currently ranked the #1 video game, this third-person battle royale is storming the world.

Fortnite is a free battle royale game where surviving is key. In each game, there are 100 players who jump out of a bus and skydive towards a chosen destination. Once you parachute onto your destination, you roam around searching for loot.

Loot is weapons, ammo, and materials. You can open chests that drop a random weapon, ammo, and materials. You can collect materials(wood, stone, and metal) with your pickaxe.

Fortnite is gaining more and more popularity each day, but there is controversy surrounding the game. There are two sides to this dispute: Fortnite will die in the near future and Fortnite will not die anytime soon.

According to some people, Fortnite is just another game that has gained popularity very fast but is going to die very quickly. 99% of games that rise to popularity end up becoming irrelevant a couple of months later. People believe that Fortnite is just another one of those games.

I disagree; Fortnite isn’t in any shape to die soon. First of all, Fortnite is a free game. That is a big reason why Fortnite is as popular as it is.

The game is available on any platform, and anybody can play it. There has never been a game before that is free and is as fun and entertaining as this battle royale game.

With an astonishing 125 million players, Fortnite is not going anywhere.
