Fortnite's beta has been going strong for several months, having reached one million players in less than a month. But Epic's sandbox survival shooter has blown up since then, having septupled that milestone just a mere six weeks later across all of its game modes.
Thanks to over 7 million of you who have played Fortnite! We want to keep the Battle Bus flying, so Duos and Supply Drops are available NOW. pic.twitter.com/sRx767u4aG— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) October 4, 2017
To celebrate reaching seven million users, Fortnite users can find some bonuses in their Battle Royale sessions. Hitting this milestone is a remarkable feat and one that certainly won't ease tension with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole Studios. Two weeks ago, Bluehole sent out a statement accusing Epic Games of essentially copying the PUBG formula, with producer Chang Han Kim even contemplating taking further action.
There are multiple versions of Fortnite across different pricing tiers, with the Battle Royale mode available as a free add-on. For those looking to try out Fortnite, learn how to get started and how to unlock additional hero classes going forward.
