Battlegrounds might be the only one getting into the headlines right now, but Fortnite is doing a good job of getting similar fan fare, especially after its new Battle Royale mode was released.




Developer Epic Games announced on Twitter recently that Fortnite had passed 7 million players. Two new features were also announced for Fortnite: Battle Royale, with Duos and Supply Drops now up for grabs. Duo lets you get into Fortnite: Battle Royale with another player, while Supply Drops see well... supply drops falling from the sky in random places, with the "best look you can find".


Remember that Fortnite is a free-to-play game, so those 7 million players aren't all paying customers. Epic Games announced in July that 500,000 people purchased the paid tiers of Fortnite in the days after launch, with the base version of the game costing $40 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
