Fortnite Battle Royale has found new life with the release of Fortnitemares Midas' Revenge. Earlier, at the beginning of Chapter 2, players, fans and experts had expressed their discontent with the game. Numerous pro players and content creators even quit the game simply because it felt dead.
However, Epic Games recently took to Twitter with a subtle dig at everyone who dared to call Fortnite a dead game.
As it fits perfectly with the Fortnitemares theme, Epic Games decided to have a little wordplay with the word "dead".
Fortnite has found new life in Fortnitemares Midas' Revenge
A new dynamic was recently added to Fortnite, where players return as Shadow Ghosts right after being eliminated.
While several have criticized this as a direct copy from Call Of Duty Warzone, having a zombie mode during Halloween is nothing new. Numerous content creators came to the defense of Epic Games during this Twitter conflict.
Needless to say, popular Fortnite content creators, data miners and fans have taken to the platform to comment on the post. Almost everyone unanimously expressed how Fortnite is far from being a dead game.
In the past, players have claimed that 'creative has ruined Fortnite' with too many collaborations with celebrities as well as crossovers with comic universes such as Marvel. Moreover, many fans also stated that Fortnite is gradually becoming an advertisement of sorts with all these collaborations.
Experts claim that the current mythic-driven meta in Fortnite is one of the reasons why players are not interested in the game anymore. While that might be true from a competitive perspective, Epic Games amended that by removing Dr. Doom's Mystical Bomb from FNCS.
Epic Games answering Fortnite critics in a subtle way
Popular Fortnite YouTube Tabor Hill has now commented on Fortnite's cheeky tweet, saying:
"Hahahaha. Get wrecked, all you blonde-banged chubby cheeked punk kids that put 'Dead game'. Even the Fortnite account makes fun of you."
Meanwhile, HYPEX, one of the most reliable Fortnite data miners, simply said:
With the way things are shaping up in Fortnite, it seems that the game's collaboration with Marvel will culminate in a live event.
The significant leaks and ideas for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 suggest that Winterfest 2020 is on its way to the island. Perhaps the map will be covered in snow to celebrate the festivities.
Regardless of all the speculation, it is plausible to state that Fortnite is not a dead game, not by a long shot.Published 27 Oct 2020, 17:00 IST
