Fortnite Battle Royale has surpassed 10 million players”

It looks like Fortnite could be catching up on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds as Epic Games has revealed that there are plenty of players jumping into Fortnite's own version of the popular Battle Royale game.

While Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is quite busy making its fair share of records as of late, Epic Games isn't doing too shabby with its own special Battle Royale-type game, Fortnite. With this being the case, considering the most recent figures released for the game, it means that the mode has seen growth of more than 3 million users joining in on the free-to-play mode's action since then.

As of press time, over 44.9 million hours have been spent playing Fortnite Battle Royale and during this time, 58.9 million traps have been found.

Fortnite Battle Royale's numbers are an accumulation of players across North America, Europe, and Oceania, and presumably a combination of PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One players. According to Epic Games, players have already found nearly 60 million traps and were able to create nearly 800 million walls/stairs/floors/ceilings. And at its peak, out of all those that jumped in, 525,000 players were concurrent at one point. According to the infographic, a total of 292,725,319 people has made this jump.
