Described by The New Yorker as a cross between Minecraft and the Hunger Games, this video game is insanely popular among kids, tweens, teens and beyond. In the short time between its release in September 2017 and November 2018, the epic battle game attracted 200 million players worldwide. Of those, 78.3 million are active users. Not sure about that significance? If you’re a gamer, consider the number of games in your home collection that lie under a thick layer of dust.
It’s not just kids in their parents’ basements playing, either. Many celebrities and athletes are obsessed with the game, like rapper Drake, who along with celebrity gamer Ninja broke the record for non-tournament Twitch viewers with 635,000 concurrent viewers at the peak of their live gaming stream. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Los Angeles Lakers basketball phenom Josh Hart and many pro baseball players are well-known regular participants in the global phenomenon. Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron even incorporate the game into a touchdown celebration dance.
It’s not all sunshine and roses for Fortnite, though. The game has come under fire for incorporating popular dance moves, and is currently embroiled in lawsuits to figure out if they’re in violation of copyright law, or not. Fortnite has even gotten so big (or out of control, depending on your point of view) that parents are hiring coaches to help their kids succeed in this virtual world. So, how in the know are you about this worldwide spectacle? See what you know about Fortnite — or be extra hip and learn about it — with this quiz!
