Epic Game: Fortnite Has Passed 20 Million Players Milestone

Also of note is that Fortnite announced the game had surpassed 20 million players over the weekend - a not insignificant feat considering the arguably current leader of the genre PUBG only themselves announced yesterday that they'd just hit a similar milestone.

For those keeping score, the game crossed 16 million in mid-October, 13 million in late September, and 10 million earlier that same month. Given the higher barrier for entry, PUBG amassing 20 million players is a much more impressive (and lucrative) accomplishment.

Syria Signals It Will Sign Paris Climate Deal, Leaving US Alone

PlayerUnknown himself is also aware of the several issues players have been having, and vowed to address the frustration that's been plaguing people over the last few months. Of course, PUBG will soon eliminate that edge, as the game's publishers recently announced the game will hit Xbox One on December 12.

The new Fortnite update was launched today by Epic Games and took a little while to be deployed. Either way, it's an important milestone in the game's tenure, especially since Fortnite: Battle Royale just celebrated its 20 million unique players mark.

In English, the closest thing to PUBG is probably Guns Royale [Free], but in China a game titled 荒野行动 which translates roughly to "Wilderness Survival" has stolen the top spots from Arena of Valor- A massive feat, considering Arena of Valor is so huge that it has drawn the ire of the Chinese government.
