Fortnite announces 10 million Battle Royale players

Fortnite announces 10 million Battle Royale players

One defendant had been banned from playing Fortnite nine times. As such, Epic is suing two of Fortnite's most prolific cheaters.

But anyway, this is great news for all battle royale fans as it will show publishers - and developers - that there is a big marker for this kind of games.

PCGamesN reports that Epic Games is now going after two players named Vraspir and Broom for infringing the company's copyrights. Last Sunday saw an all-time record of 525,000 concurrent players on their team-based shooter Fortnite, whilst today brings the news that 10 million players are hitting the game's recently released Battle Royale standalone mode. Epic Games filed two lawsuits with a North Carolina federal court against two players accused of cheating in Battle Royale and violating Epic's copyrights. Both Broom and Vraspir are alleged to have encouraged others to buy cheats.

Let's be straight for a second, nobody likes playing with cheaters.

Korean lawmaker says N. Korea hacked war plans
On Saturday, a US nuclear-powered Los Angeles-class attack submarine arrived in South Korea . North Korea has yet to comment on either the bombing drills or the hacking claims.

According to Epic, both defendants specifically targeted streamers while cheating. These axioms are particularly true in this case.

The document continues: "As Defendant intends, this often ruins the game for other players, and for the many people who watch 'streamers'". However, it would seem that that pretty much all of the new players are flocking to the game exclusively because of the PUBG-inspired feature. Epic's move toward legal action wasn't without warning, however.

Taking all of this into account, it will be interesting to see if this positive turn of events for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode will cause PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' developer Bluehole Studios to actually follow through on its warning that it is "contemplating further action" against the Epic Games title for "replicating the experience for which PUBG is known".
