What is Fortnite Battle Royale?
Fortnite Battle Royale is a very large multiplayer online game, involving 100 players with each other in cyberspace.
The game was inspired by a concept popularized by the Japanese novel Battle Royale, where the last person standing was considered the winner.
Players are dropped into random areas in cyberspace where they are free to scavenge weapons to defend themselves.
Players must keep moving to stay in the game. Just like in the novel, danger zones appear throughout cyberspace as the battle progresses.
Players in the danger zone must run to a safe area as fast as possible, otherwise they risk being eliminated from the game.
Another attraction is that this game is cross platform, which means that Xbox and PlayStation players can compete with each other.
No less interesting is that one of the 45 million players in this game is rapper Drake. He has broadcast live several online games.
Drake shared footage from his match using the Twitch broadcasting service, which was very popular with young players.
