Fortnite Battle Royale has transcended your normal video diversion to turn rather of a informative phenomenon. In fact, a third-person shooter saw a rise 3.4 million point players in March, with a servers buckling underneath a pressure. Fortnite Battle Royale also binds a record for particular pennon numbers on Twitch with Ninja’s tide featuring Drake.
Part of that has to do with a recognition of Battle Royale games in general, and partial of it has to do with a Epic Games’ ability to supplement tiny sum (like these dances) to a colorful, fun-to-watch world.
But maybe many importantly, Epic Games seems to be recurrent about gripping a diversion fresh, either it’s adding new actor skins, new areas of a map, or new apparatus within a game. In that vein, Fortnite
BR is structured in seasons, durability 3 months each, that supplement a new deteriorate to Battle Royale.
Season 3, with a space theme, ends on Apr 30. But over space-themed skins, Epic has also layered in a small storyline, with a comet set to strike a diversion map. As partial of this, meteors have been gradually removing closer to a map, and recently attack it. TVs via a diversion are broadcasting an puncture message. Rooftops and towering peaks now have telescopes and grass chairs where people presumably set adult to check out a incoming comet.
The doubt on each Battle Royale players mind? Will a comet strike a map? Will it strike Tilted Towers, a incongruous ‘downtown’ of a map and a many renouned alighting mark by far? The poser surrounding this comet, that has had no outcome on a tangible game, has done Fortnite Battle Royale all a some-more tip of mind to players and spectators alike.
In only a few days, we’ll get a answers as Season 4 begins.
Epic Games has teased Season 4 via Twitter with a striking that seems to spirit during a Superhero-themed season. Within a strain of glow (the comet?) is a picture of a chairman in an Iron Man-esque mask. Or maybe he looks some-more like a Flash. Today, Epic tweeted out another picture that competence spirit during a new skin, with a womanlike impression who demeanour strikingly identical to Wonder Woman.
Fight with Honor.

Again, Epic Games is staying as applicable as possible. The Marvel star is thriving, and Avengers: Infinity War comes out today.
Forbes writer Paul Tassi posits that a comet and a Super Hero thesis are interconnected. Perhaps a comet is a superhero, alighting to chaperon in Season 4. Maybe a superhero is nearing to save a star from a comet. Or maybe a comet strikes, aliens land with it, and Season 4 centers around a conflict between aliens and superheroes.
Honestly, anything could happen. But a fact that people, myself included, caring adequate to spend time formulating and wading by several theories indicates that Fortnite’s Battle Royale is not negligence down anytime soon.
