Epic Games is the company behind Fortnite, one of the most popular contemporary video games. Fortnite is a battle royal, which means the objective is to be the last player or team standing. At the beginning of a round, 100 players are dropped into a big cartoonish world and tasked with picking up materials, items and weapons that will help them outlast their opponents. The game is free to play a big factor in its popularity and makes the bulk of its money through players paying for an in-game currency to buy cosmetics. The game also often hosts showy, high profile events, including a Marvel tie-in around the Avengers series, and a Travis Scott concert.
