You knew this was coming, let’s be honest. Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now. It seems like literally everyone is playing it. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to organize an event around it at Your University.
First released on July 25th in 2017, Fortnite: Save the World is a survival co-op third-person shooter game where up to four players fight zombie-like creatures and defend and build their own forts. By September of 2017, Epic Games released Fortnite: Battle Royale as a free to play game mode of the original game. This version rapidly gained players, with over 10 million players in its first two weeks. This rapid growth forced Epic to separate their development team to continue working on Save the World next to Battle Royale.
With the introduction of skins and other cosmetic items to Battle Royale, Epic quickly gathered enough financial resources to organize absolutely huge events that featured the most popular streamers and YouTubers, promoting the game even further. One of such events was a live stream by Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. It was a live stream sponsored by Red Bull on New York’s Time Square. 12 hours of Fortnite content with famous guests on New Year’s Eve, absolutely amazing. In addition, Ninja and Red Bull gave out over $100.000 in bits.
