Fortnite: Battle Royale Sold 5 Million Battle Passes in a Single Day

PUBG sues Epic over Fortnite similarities PUBG Developer Sues Fortnite Maker For Copyright Infringement

Despite its story as a free-to-play experience, the popular battle royale mode sold a whopping 5 million Battle Basses during its first day of Season 3.

Friday's Fortnite Keemstar tournament will feature the Blitz mode so you can check that out if you want to see some of the top players compete against one another. As regular Fortnite players will come to expect by now, one of the challenges involves finding a hidden treasure map then using it to locate some hidden Battle Stars, which will increase your Fortnite Season 4 ranking and unlock more of those sweet customisation items.

PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUBG) and Fortnite are some of the most popular multiplayer games that are now available. PUBG filed the suit "to determine whether the latter's "Fortnite" was copied from the former's "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds". "We have also noticed that Epic Games references PUBG in the promotion of Fortnite to their community and in communications with the press".

Fortnite and PUBG have both attracted millions of gamers with their huge "last player standing" online battles. That's not a knock on those other games so much as a bit of cheering for diversity. Furthermore, the developers keep players coming back for more by churning out new content on a regular basis; in-game skins and "Battle Passes" bring the game a ton of its revenue. It has a very cartoony and colorful theme whereas PUBG is gritty and more realistic.

First of all, in the game, from the supermarket trolley. The game also regularly gets exposure by hosting events with celebrity players.

PUBG confirmed it had applied for an injunction against Epic Games Korea in January.

It's fair to say that Fortnite has some of the most loyal and observant fans in gaming, and lucky for them, Epic knows how to please them. Sometimes a writer. Sometimes a creative director.
