There’s no Batman, Luke Skywalker, or Jack Skellington in Fortnite‘s new OG Season. However, Fortnite has received its busiest day ever, receiving over 44.7 million players on Saturday, November 4, blowing the development team away.
Players spent a lot of time in Fortnite last weekend
“We’re blown away by the response to #FortniteOG,” said the game’s official Twitter page. “Yesterday was the biggest day in Fortnite’s history with over 44.7 MILLION players jumping in and 102 MILLION hours of play.”
The new OG season takes players back to the beginning of the battle royale mode. It brings back beloved locations like Tilted Towers, Greasy Grove, and Snobby Shores into the experience. This has obviously attracted fans to return to the game.
The classic Assault Rifle, Pump Shotgun, and Hunting Rifle are back. In addition, you can use the Damage Trap, Grappler, and Boogie Bomb. The latter is my personal favorite, as it forces your opponents to dance if they get hit by the grenade. You can also ride around in a Shopping Kart or an All Terrain Kart.’
If you’re a regular Fortnite player, you can utilize the Reboot Rally. This is an incentive to get returning friends into the action. If you finish certain goals with them, you can get the Skerran Glider and more rewards.
Fans have reacted strongly
Fortnite news social media account HYPEX reposted a funny video with the returning shopping kart that has received 17.4 million views. It says, “NAH FORTNITE IS SO BACK.” It has a hilarious laugh that doesn’t fail to make you smile as the shopping kart single-handedly takes out two party members. Popular streamer Ninja has retweeted the post as well, likely bringing in more players to the battle royale.
Meanwhile, streamer Nick Eh 30 shared an impressive feat in-game. The clip has received over one million views. “I have missed the OG season, let me tell you,” Nick said with a laugh, decimating two enemies simultaneously. “I love it.”
On social media and around the world, there is a buzz around Epic Games’ battle royale now more than ever.
