Good new for creators - Fortnite is finally getting a replay function

His live stream - on which he joined the shoot-'em'-up adventure "Fortnite" with players including video-game star Ninja - drew 628,000 viewers, Twitch said, far outpacing the previous record of 388,000.

Not having a PS4 version might be a sizable chunk of the market that PUBG is missing out on, but I tend to think that Fortnite has the advantage mainly because it is free-to-play. There's some exclusive chat emojis that you can use on Twitch, and there's two heroes for Save the World: Havoc and Sub Commando Jonesy.

The gaming guru admits that "Twitch Prime allows people to claim loot and collect loot with specific games, and they recently did a deal with Fortnite, which is the hottest game right now, and that is actually one of the main reasons of influx of subscribers to my stream". It's not exactly clear how long the heavy shotgun's effective range is, but the trade-off for this additional power is that the gun will be a lot less forgiving up close.

Epic even flew out British YouTube personality and Twitch streamer Alastair "Ali-A" Aiken to demo the feature with a custom Fortnite Battle Royale video he made with help from the Epic team. Who will claim Victory Royale?

The massive amount that Blevins is making shows that there certainly is money in video games, not just for professional eSports players but for content providers as well.


"We started working on this just about the time Save the World was coming out", Epic's Ed Zobrist explained at a GDC panel.

Following in the footsteps of it's battle royale brother, Epic's Fortnite will soon have it's own replay editor. It's all about the rules of survival, and being the last man standing.

According to Pornhub Insights, the game is least popular in Washington DC, Mississipi, Hawaii, Vermont and both Carolinas. Fortnite finally debuted to the public in 2017 in paid, early access rather than in its intended finished, free-to-play state, which is still on the way.

In July, Epic had a highly polished PvE co-op experience, but they decided they needed something for the competitive player.

That's because, as Zobrist put it, Fortnite took a much more accelerated timeline for launch.
