Fortnite Battle Royale has reached it’s first anniversary since its launch on September 26, 2017. 

Today marks the first anniversary of the launch of Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode – the one that shot it to popularity and made it a game that took over the world. In August 2018, Epic Games reported that August was Fortnite Battle Royale’s biggest month yet with 78.3 million players across all platforms.

Since its launch in September 2017, Fortnite Battle Royale has gone through five seasons, multiple cross-promotions, and even allowed Ninja to break the Twitch viewership record two times in a row – by firstly playing with Drake and then competing in a Las Vegas exhibition event.

Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the biggest trends of 2018 – popularising dances such as the Floss, Orange Justice, and even the damn Default Dance. Through the game’s popularity, Epic Games have been able to host multiple fan-based competitions allowing them to express their creativity, whether it be through creating a dance, a short film, and more.

What does Fortnite mean to you? It has meant a lot to us at Fortnite INTEL, allowing us to share news, rumors and content with the community every single day – so we want to thank Epic Games and all the staff who have worked on Fortnite’s Battle Royale and Save the World modes, as well as congratulate them on reaching the first anniversary of the mode’s release.
