By combining the building mechanics of Fortnite with the intense survival gameplay of “battle royale” games, Fortnite: Battle Royale has drawn a huge number of players looking to scratch that survival itch, with the game having crossed a big milestone since release.
Epic Games has announced that Fortnite: Battle Royale has surpassed 10 million players since it released two weeks ago on consoles and PC, with the free-to-play mode surely grabbing the attention of players that either have (or haven’t) played similar experiences like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and are looking for a new addiction.
In addition to the new playerbase milestone, Epic has also released a new infographic featuring various stats from players since the mode released, including the number of times players have jumped from the Battle Bus, number of fortifications built, and the number of hours played, which has already surpassed nearly 44.5 million (of course, Epic also noted the number of college degrees that could have been earned in that same amount of time, whether you wanted to know that or not).
Fortnite: Battle Royale is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as a free-to-play, standalone experience from Fortnite. For a closer look at the game’s stats since its release, you can check out the full infographic from Epic below:
