As Fortnite Season 4 Nears, New Update Adds Emergency Broadcast Teaser

Epic Games' massive free-to-play survival Battle Royale game "Fortnite" has overthrown "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" in terms of overall monthly players and revenue generated, market research company SuperData announced today.

You can keep up with the Fortnite meteor saga as it develops right here on IGN. Research firm Superdata says that the game made $223 million in March 2018, which was a 75% jump from their gross revenues in February.

In an effort to solve the meteor mystery, some hardcore fans have even opened up the game's code looking for clues, according to fan-blog Fortnite Intel, which reported that the latest update includes dozens of new meteor-related sound effects, some even labeled "Impact".

The astounding growth of Fortnite: Battle Royale can be attributed to the fact that its free-to-play nature means the barrier to entry is extremely low. Perhaps Epic is plotting a new set of skins based around superheroes for Fortnite's season 4 battle pass?

On PC, Fortnite was only the 5th highest grossing game of the month. Epic games have been teasing its player with events in the game and on social media.

The majority of the most interesting information about this is actually about Save the World. We're ready to get off of this merry-go-round for the time being.

If there's any question regarding the effect Fornite has had on popular culture, consider this: last month, a record-breaking Twitch stream took place, with over 600,000 people tuning in at once to witness professional gamer Ninja play a Fortnite match with rappers Drake and Travis Scott.

"Battle Royale" players started seeing meteorites hitting the ground in the game.
