Everyone and their cat knows that Fortnite is big, very big. However, the number Epic threw out recently still left me stunned. The developer announced in a recent post that over 78 million gamers played Fortnite in August. A whopping 78.3 million to be exact. This marks the game’s biggest month yet and with Season 6 coming soon, it is sure to increase even more in September.
The fact that over 78 million gamers played Fortnite last month is impressive, to say the least. One of the reasons so many gamers play Fortnite is obviously because it’s free. However, one cannot deny that Epic Games has done an amazing job keeping things fresh.
Fortnite Season 6 Incoming
Just recently, a mysterious cube turned a lake all bouncy. There’s always something new and awesome coming to the game, which keeps players interested. Speaking of that, there might be something huge happening soon. Fortnite’s Season 6 kicks off on 27 September and with that mysterious cube event as well as a Balloon item, as per a leak, we could be in for a treat.
Another leak via a data mine also suggest pets, music packs and weapon skins might be coming to the game soon, most likely with Season 6. I think Epic Games’ head honcho, Mark Rein, said it best when teasing that there might be more surprises to come in a recent Tweet.
This is @FortniteGame – there’s ALWAYS something else 🙂
We will have to see what Epic Games has up their sleeves for Season 6, but I, for one, am excited to see what happens to Loot Lake and how this all plays out. Some rumours suggest that the entire map might change as players have translated the runes on the Viking ship and found them to mean “transformation” and “renewal”.
What do you hope to see in Season 6 and were you one of those 78 million gamers who played Fornite last month? Let us know in the comment section below.
