The game Fortnite has swept across the world and has quickly become one of the most played games in America. This craze has definitely not skipped over FHN, as it is a popular topic of conversation around the school. When Fortnite first came out, it seemed there were students playing it everywhere: in the hall, in classrooms, in the cafeteria. People couldn’t seem to get enough of it. After a few months, the game’s player amount decreased a little, but it is still very popular here at FHN.

The game starts with 100 players in something called the battle bus. The players then sky dive down to an island where there are many different locations to land. At these locations, players collect building materials and weapons. During the game, players are trying to kill one another in the mission in order to be the last one standing, also known as the winner. While doing all of this, the available land gets smaller and smaller because of a storm that closes in around the island. To stay alive, players must remain in the eye of the storm, which decreases in size, as the storm grows while trying not to die at the hands of another players character. Sounds easy, right?

Fortnite first came out on July 25, 2017 and hit the ground running. Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite is a game where strategy, luck and quick reflexes are needed to become the winner. In the first few months of release, the game already had millions of players. Because of how popular the game has become, certain aspects of it has been overflowing into everyday life. People attempting emotes, A.K.A Fortnite’s unique dance moves, have become a viral sensation. There are even Youtubers who get paid just for posting videos of themselves playing Fortnite. Ninja, Muselk, Myth and Dakotaz are just some of the most popular Fortnite Youtubers. Also, Fortnite is constantly changing because of new updates, including different game modes. So, there’s always something new and exciting being put into the game.
