The video game industry has brought in massive amounts of money and attention worldwide. Among these, one of the newest and largest is Fortnite, which was released in 2017, an online video game developed by Epic Games.
Fortnite is available in three distinct game mode versions sharing the same general gameplay and game engine:
1) Fortnite: Save the World: It is a cooperative shooter-survival game for up to four players to fight off zombie-like creatures and defend objects with fortifications they can build.
2) Fortnite Battle Royale: It is a free-to-play battle royale game. As many as 100 players can play the game, fighting to be the last person standing.
3) Fortnite Creative: Players are completely free to create worlds and battle arenas.
The first two games have been extremely successful after it was released in 2017, and Fortnite Battle Royale drew in more than 125 million players in less than a year. Thus the games brought in hundreds of millions of dollars per month to the company.
Currently, Fortnite has transferred to a free-to-play model. It is available across multiple platforms, and it updates regularly with bug fixes, small alterations, limited time features, and large seasonal changes. All of these result in its fast growth and super success.
To its fans, Fortnite has become not only a game but also a social forum, a source of entertainment, and a cultural phenomenon. For example, Fortnite has held in-game concerts for several times.
Fortnite has attracted a large number of people's attention to live entertainment. Due to this, video game streaming platform Twitch has also become popular as it is collaborating with Fortnite developer Epic Games.
Because of the popularity of Fortnite, a rising number of people have turned their major entertaining activity to digital types. Thus Fortnite has attracted huge amount of money and a lot of attention, and has grown to be able to compete with the current entertainment market. Therefore, competition in the entertainment market is becoming more complex.
Fortnite is not just attracting consumers' attention to the content of its platform, but also trying to ask more consumers to first choose the activity of watching over playing a video game. It also plans to expand further into the entertainment industry with a global tournament in 2019 with a $100 million prize pool.
