Fortnite has been around for a while now, and the player count of the game has only skyrocketed even with the diminishing popularity of the battle royale genre.
We get a slew of changes to the game, almost redesigned completely from top to bottom to have it up and ready for cloud gaming.
Let’s take a look at Fortnite Xbox Cloud gaming, and how you can play a round of Fortnite (or 15) while you are on that long flight away from home.
The Increasing Popularity of Fortnite
Fortnite remaining one of mainstream media’s favorites is partly due to the slew of licensed content from other franchises that make it enjoyable and involving for both players and content creators.
Fortnite has seen high-profile partnerships with the likes of DC, Marvel, Dragon Ball and Naruto to bring characters such as Batman, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Goku and Sasuke into the mix.
And these haven’t been just cosmetic changes to the game. The default characters do get a lot of cosmetic support from skins to weapon skins and more, but the licensed characters also come with the integration of their abilities into the game without making it broken.
As the game has proved, it is also very favorable for streamers and other content creators to make a living off of covering Fortnite content.
The poster boy of that experiment has historically been Ninja on Twitch, but many more in the mix have carved out a massive fan following due to the support the game receives from parent company Epic Games.
