'Fortnite: Battle Royal' Just Made $318 Million in a Single Month

  'Fortnite: Battle Royal' Just Made $318 Million in a Single Month For a free game, "Fortnite: Battle Royal" is bringing in a ton of cash. The wildly popular video game just raked in $318 million in May — setting a record for the biggest sales month ever for a free game, according to a report from SuperData Research on Tuesday. Yes, that makes it even bigger than the "Pokemon Go" mania of 2016, and also ran past the previous benchmark of $223.6 million, set by "Lineage M" last July. Unless you've been in a coma the for the last year, you've probably at least heard about the "Fortnite" craze, or been swept up in it yourself. If you're unfamiliar, the game pits 100 players against one another in a battle-to-the-death. Players can play solo, or team up in pairs or teams to try and navigate to the "eye of the storm" — a shrinking landscape that forces players to fight, rather than hide. You can play it on several platforms, including Xbox, Playstation, Mac, PC, and iOS.

With a network of more than 40 million players — including Drake and NBA star Paul George — that adds up. Since launching "Battle Royal" less than a year ago, the game has made $1.2 billion in revenue. But there are also signs "Fortnite" might be plateauing, at least a bit, with its revenue growth slowing to 7.6 percent month-over-month in May, compared to 32 percent in April. Epic Games, the company behind "Fortnite," is rushing to release the Android version of the game this summer to capitalize on its immense popularity.

It's a notable one, with a new weapon, birthday challenges, and more included, but perhaps best of all are the variety of map changes that have been implemented--one of which is quite funny, though it requires you to know where to look.

To understand this tribute on the map, you need to be familiar with the plight of Chappadoodle. Recently, streamer Muselk published a video of an attempted rescue operation in Fortnite. He sees an All-Terrain Kart nearing the edge of the map and goes to investigate, only to discover a player--Chappadoodle--has fallen far off the edge of the map but somehow managed to survive. Assuming Chappadoodle has simply run out of building materials and is stuck, Muselk builds an elaborate series of stairs to get them out. But just as they are about to reach the trapped player, he finds himself unable to build further, seemingly due to a block in place at such a low elevation.

PUBG maker drops suit against Epic Games over Fortnite

  PUBG maker drops suit against Epic Games over Fortnite PUBG Corp., the developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, has withdrawn its lawsuit against Epic Games, the creator of Fortnite, according to a report from Bloomberg. PUBG Corp. sued Epic earlier this year in Korea over concerns that Fortnite Battle Royale infringed PUBG’s intellectual property. It’s not clear why PUBG Corp. ended legal proceedings or if a settlement between the two game makers had been reached, based on Bloomberg’s report. PUBG Corp. went after Epic in May, calling the lawsuit “a measure to protect our copyrights.” In 2017, the studio behind PUBG expressed concern “that Fortnite may be replicating the experience for which PUBG is known” and hinted at taking legal action. Epic Games was originally upfront about Fortnite Battle Royale’s inspiration. “Yeah, we made a PvP mode for Fortnite,” Epic said when the mode was announced last September. “We love Battle Royale games like PUBG and thought Fortnite would make a great foundation for our own version.” Both Epic Games and PUBG Corp. are partly owned by Chinese firm Tencent. Both Fortnite and PUBG also use Epic Games’ Unreal Engine.

Luckily, the aforementioned ATK was still hanging around up above, so Muselk retrieves it, intending to use its bouncy roof to let Chappadoodle reach the stairs. While attempting to bring the ATK down, it goes dangerously tumbling down the side of the cliff, but somehow manages to not fall off the map--only to mistakenly collide with Chappadoodle, sending them flying off the map to their death. And in a cruel twist, Muselk tests his theory of using the ATK's roof to reach the stairs, and sure enough, it works.
