Fortnite: Battle Royale has reached 10 million gamers since its release two weeks ago, after releasing in Early Access earlier this year - without its Battle Royale game mode.

Epic Games has said that an estimated 3.7 million gamers were playing Fortnite: Battle Royale on Sunday, with a concurrent base of 525,000 gamers. This doesn't compare to the near 2 million concurrent players in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, but it's damn good for Epic.

Epic Games released a bunch of details on Fortnite: Battle Royale in an infographic, with 44 million hours played, 58 million traps found, and a huge 292 million people jumping from the Battle Bus. There are lots of other random details included, with 6.9 million umbrellas earned and 797 million walls/stairs/floors/ceilings built. Impressive.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
