Fortnite this. Fortnite that. Fortnite is everywhere and everyone is talking about it.

Fortnite was released by Epic Games on July 25th, 2017. It is a third person shooting game that is on Xbox, Playstation, and a PC platform. It has 2 separate modes: Battle Royale and Save the World.

“Fortnite Save the World” is set on earth, where the sudden appearance of a worldwide storm causes 98% of the world’s population to suddenly disappear and zombie like creatures rise to attack the remainder. “Fortnite Battle Royale” is a player vs player game. You can play by yourself, with a friend, or with multiple friends. Here and there, new game modes come out with only certain weapons available to those modes.

Lately, “Fortnite Battle Royale” has been increasing in popularity. Alexander Pirkl, an 8th grader in the purple pod, plays Fortnite. He says “I play every chance I get. It is an amazing and addicting game.” He also explains, “It’s like Minecraft and Call of Duty had a baby.” In addition to combat, there is the ability to build things.

Hunter Altis, 8th grade, also plays. He started playing the game and has really enjoyed it. He explains, “This game is really addicting because you want to get more wins so you can get a lot of rewards.” Some of the rewards, he explains, are skins or other in game tools used in a regular Fortnite match. There are also emotes and dance moves you can win or buy.

Alexa Scully, an 8th grade girl, has her opinions about fortnite. She has never played, yet she has seen a few videos about it. “I have never been into video games, and to me it is pointless.” She explains that she believes that there is no point to videogames and feels they are a waste of time. She explains that games are made to lure you into spending money.

Fortnite has become the game for a lot of people for a couple of months now. People are talking about it before school, after school, and even during school. Now some people only really care about Fortnite over everything else. Overall, people are super addicted to Fortnite,. It is the “new trend.”
