The Battle-Royale game is attracting all sorts of people and with its enormous rise in popularity, it is nearly inevitable for the game to surpass Minecraft as the most played game on the internet.

Epic have done a fine job of scaling with the Fortnite demand, usually getting on top of any issues and providing a mainly stable online game with little downtime. When Ninja asks, "Does pineapple belong on pizza?"

Fortnite was initially released on Sony's PlayStation and it quickly became popular.

Also, we got to hear a bit of commentary from Drake and Ninja. Once received, the player will be given directions by the Fortnite team for sharing those invites with friends. The concept is to have one celebrity paired with a professional player, and then letting them have it, last pair standing and all that jazz.

Battle Royale is free to play, so you have no excuse not to sign up for it... unless you jailbreak.

Epic Games is being careful about its roll out on mobile.
