A game named as Fortnite has been gaining a lot of attention around the world. Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite is one of the most-played games in the world and yet there are some facts about the game that most players are unaware of.
Why The Name Fortnite?
Ever wonder from where the name of the games comes from and why the companies choose the very particular name. The game was given the name as Fortnite because there is a mode within the game where the players have to survive for two weeks, a fortnight, within the game’s time zone.
The Similarity Of Concept
If you remember The Hunger Games you will get to know the similarity between Fortnite and the novel/film. A hundred players are parachuting into a battleground, fighting with weapons whichever they find, and surviving the competition.
The Change In An Exam Syllabus
You won’t believe that once students at Tippecanoe High School in Ohio made a bet with their chemistry teacher that if a tweet of the bet got more than 6,700 retweets, the teacher would have to change the syllabus of the exam to questions based on Fortnite and the result was unbelievable that tweet got more than 30,000 retweets and the questions were changed according to the terms of the bet.
The Quickest Landing
If you want to land before the others, you can aim for the sea. This opens the glider at a later time since it measures the distance from the land beneath the sea rather than the sea level.
Wanna Best Places To Scope For Enemies
Some experienced players have admitted that the high places, such as trees and rooftops, are the best places to scope out enemies. They kill the enemies around them and then make their way to the houses on the land to look for treasures.
The Blue Rifts Appearing Mysteriously
You may not believe that in Season 5 of the Battle Royale saw the appearance of the mysterious blue rifts. Earlier, they were believed to be portals for time travel but they were just rifts so that there could be breaches for objects to appear out of nowhere.
The Dance Moves in a Football Game
What will be your reaction? If I say that the dance moves from the winning games have gained just as much attention as the game itself. Football players have been spotted celebrating their goals with the dance moves from Fortnite.
The Most Viewed Fortnite Match Ever
On 14th March, 2018 saw the best played Fortnite match ever. The squad consisted of Drake, Travis Scott, Juju Smith-Schuster, and Tyler Blevins and the viewership of the game was more than 600,000 people worldwide.
Once, Rapper Drake confirmed that, in the live stream of the match that even while he was in the studio recording an album, he would often take breaks from the recording in order to play Fortnite. He also admitted that he would watch Tyler Blevins play and it was a great stress buster for him.
Bringing In More Fame
Epic Games saw the interest that was generated in the match that Drake played. They offered a $3 million prize in a tournament that went to charity. The tournament featured 50 professional players and 50 celebrities.
