'Fortnite' Celebrates Hitting 7 Million Players

Epic Games' sandbox survival game Fortnite now has over seven million players, the studio recently announced on Twitter. The news comes about a week after the game's new Battle Royale mode debuted on PC and consoles.

Fortnite's Battle Royale mode drops players into a large map where they must scrounge for weapons and use their building skills to be the last man (or woman) standing. It's similar to the massively popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds – so similar, in fact, that PUBG publisher Bluehole threatened legal action. Neither PUBG nor Fortnite are the first games to feature battle royale elements, however, and it's unlikely a lawsuit will happen.

Meanwhile, Epic is celebrating its new milestone with some new Battle Royale features – Duos and Supply Drops. The developer is also working on leaderboards and stats. "As soon as they are finished and working properly, we will announce them," it tweets.
