Fortnite, the popular battle royale game developed by Epic Games, has continued to make history over the years. While some may consider it a fad or a game for “kids,” it has proven to be a popular pastime and entertaining shooter title for many players. Despite debates over whether it is a good game or requires too much skill to build, one thing is clear: Fortnite is the king of updates.
The game has been constantly reinventing itself over the years, and in 2023, it broke a record for the number of players. During the Big Bang event, which marks the end of the OG season, Fortnite brought together over 11.5 million players simultaneously to watch Eminem perform. This event was not only popular within the game, but it also attracted over 3 million viewers on Twitch, as well as millions more on platforms such as YouTube and TikTok.
This success has confirmed Epic Games’ strategic planning when it comes to updates for Fortnite. As a result, the OG mode will return in 2024 with more iconic updates. This news was announced by Fortnite’s official Twitter account, which stated that the OG season far exceeded their expectations, prompting them to bring it back.
Currently, players can enjoy all the new features of Chapter 5 while waiting for the OG updates in 2024. The OG mode is expected to be a “Classic” version of the battle royale format, bringing back the original map and gameplay mechanics that made the game so popular in the first place.
Overall, Fortnite has proven to be a game that continues to evolve and attract players from all over the world. Its success is a testament to the dedication of its developers and the passion of its community.
