'Fortnite: Battle Royale' reaches 10 million players in two weeks

'Fortnite: Battle Royale' reaches 10 million players in two weeks

The targeted cheaters, Brandon Broom and Charles Vraspir, are allegedly support staff on cheat website AddictedCheats, which sells cheats and hacks. Epic Games claims they had to reverse-engineer and modify Fortnite's source code to do this, creating an unauthorized derivative work that's in violation of the Copyright Act. This practice, which is known as "stream sniping, ' has been a semi-frequent and much-derided fad among the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds community-a game that Fortnite " s new battle royale mode expressly took some cues from.

Epic Games has released a new infographic for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode sharing all sorts of stats such as the new game mode accumulating up to 10 million players in just 2 weeks. We are constantly working against both the cheaters themselves and the cheat providers. Thousands of accounts have since been banned. "We don't want to give too many clues about what we're doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so".

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.

As it turns out, one of those steps involves legal action.

Oculus is also promoting the optical lenses are new and improved for the Go, offering a wider field of view and less glare. The Oculus Rift is a fantastic piece of hardware that is straddled to an even bigger, more powerful hunk of machinery.

Sounds pretty serious. And the complaint has also noted, "Nobody likes a cheater". "And nobody likes playing with cheaters". These axioms are particularly true in this case.

As seen in the infographic attached to the tweet below, Epic Games and People Can Fly chose to not only announce the player milestone that Fortnite has hit, but also figured that fans could use some additional statistics about the game's free-to-play PvP companion mode.

According to Epic, both defendants specifically targeted streamers while cheating. "It already has over seven million players and is on track to be Epic's most successful game yet".
