Fortnite Battle Royale hits 525000 concurrent players, with 3.7m daily active users

Fortnite’s Battle Royale Passes 10 Million Players

The pair have been linked to a cheat provider, acting as moderators on a site that assists players in using exploits. The Battle Royale concept has already done wonders for the game that popularised it, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and it appears that adapting the idea has worked wonders for Epic Games.

Epic filed civil complaints Tuesday against two alleged associates of Addicted Cheats, a website that provides aimbotting services to players.

"In using cheat software to modify the game's code in this way", the complaints read, "Defendant and other cheaters who use the cheat create unauthorized derivative works based on Fortnite in violation of the Copyright Act". While Battlegrounds explicitly forbids cheating and stream-sniping in its rules of conduct, Fortnite'sonly explicitly forbids cheating.




For those unaware, Epic Games and People Can Fly revealed just a week ago that Fortnite's Battle Royale mode had garnered upwards of 7 million players, and went on to offer bonuses to fans in order to celebrate the accomplishment. In response, he allegedly registered several other accounts with different names to continue playing Fortnite and stream-sniping.

This action follows on the tail of the company saying earlier this month that "addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games". Over Discord chat, both defendants declined to comment. Epic statement clearly implies the disdain the company has for cheaters: "Defendant's cheating, and his inducing and enabling of others to cheat, is ruining the game playing experience of players who do not cheat". "We take cheating seriously, and we'll pursue all available options to make sure our games are fun, fair, and competitive for players". PUBG recently surpassed 15 million in units sold, Gamerant notes, so it's not as if Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is cutting into the game's profits.
