Fortnite is the most popular Battle Royale in the world from Epic Games. In 2017 Fortnite was mostly known as PvE game, but the hype around PUBG forced the developers to make a huge turn around. It was a risk, but it paid off lately. The most popular Fortnite streamer Ninja had hundreds of thousands of viewers. His biggest record is the collaboration with famous rap-singer Drake — Ninja had 667.000 viewers on his personal channel at the peak.
Epic Games made a huge announce that the company are going to contribute $100.000.000 into tournaments prize pools of the first esports competitive Fortnite season. It automatically transformed Fortnite into the huge esports discipline.
