  • Drake breaks new streaming record - in video games

Not having a PS4 version might be a sizable chunk of the market that PUBG is missing out on, but I tend to think that Fortnite has the advantage mainly because it is free-to-play. TLDR: Epic fine tooth-combed all areas of the game's visual performance, to buy back micro seconds of latency time, which add up into a considerable saving on the strain it puts on the GPU and CPU.

Interestingly, Battle Royale was originally planned to be part of Save the World as an optional PvP mode, much like multiplayer always used to be in traditional, campaign-led shooters. So to help, we've included one below which you can check out.

According to Epic's Ed Zobrist, who spoke at a GDC panel earlier this week, development of Fortnite Battle Royale kicked off around the time the game entered early access. The team worked 14 days straight with no pauses for weekends. Rather than a CGI announcement trailer 12-18 months out, as Zobrist surmised many major releases have, Fortnite debuted a gameplay trailer with release date just seven weeks ahead of launch.

The mobile version of Epic's battle royale Fortnite mode has grossed an estimated $1.5 million in revenue through in-app purchases in roughly one week on the app store, despite now being an invite-only title. Epic said it wouldn't be their place to comment, but you could "look at it on Google Trends, add a few choice keywords, and draw your own conclusions".

YouTube gamer Ali-A was also at the conference to showcase the new editor in action. The "Thank you" video actually began as an internal company meeting video. His live stream - on which he joined the shoot-'em'-up adventure "Fortnite" with players including video-game star Ninja - drew 628,000 viewers, Twitch said, far outpacing the previous record of 388,000. However, the most intriguing news story comes via an interview with CNBC, which saw Blevin detail his meteoric rise in the gaming realm, and how fruitful a career within the industry can be. The game is now a big driver of technical advancements for Epic's game developer toolset.
