While Fortnite's battle royale mode pits 100 players against each other in any given server, playground mode made matches for groups of one to four players at a time. Games like DayZ, H1Z1, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds popularized the "Hunger Games"-style formula, in which a hundred players are dropped onto a shrinking play area, and must scavenge for weapons and supplies in an effort to be the last man standing". As the news release puts it, this ultimately led to the CPU holding "a backlog of pending requests resulting in a feedback loop" which meant Epic Games had no choice but to close the Playground for repairs. Today, it can be played for free on PCs, any gaming console, and on mobile iOS devices.

Fortnite, developed by Epic Games, was released in late 2017 and makes money entirely from in-app purchases, where players spend real dollars to buy in-game currency in order to customize their avatars. And according to Superdata's report, the Battle Royale genre is now the most popular in the world - at least as far as streaming and YouTube views are concerned - with over 700 million hours of content involving the genre viewed in May (with MOBAs in second place, clocking up 275 million hours).

KEEMSTAR announced his decision to cancel the 11th edition of his highly successful UMG tournament in Friday Fortnite on July 19th on his personal Twitter account in response to the decision of Epic Games to host their 500K solo Fortnite Summer Skirmish Tournament at the same time.
