Epic Games has announced that its third-person action building game, Fortnite, has surpassed one million players. Fortnite was launched in Early Access on July 25th, meaning that it took Epic almost a month to hit its one million milestone. In addition, the team revealed that a Survival mode will be coming to Fortnite on August 29th.

Fortnite is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and invites players to team up as they build massive forts and battle against hordes of monsters, all while crafting and looting within giant worlds where no two games are ever the same.
The first reviews for Epic’s latest title were not that positive as a lot of reviewers felt that the game’s progression system was flawed. The good news here is that the game is in Early Access and things may improve over the next few months. Not only that, but Epic Games will release the game as a F2P title in 2018.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
