Fortnite

Here’s your latest Keeping Current App and Website review for September and October of 2018: Fornite.

The Scoop

Chances are, you’ve heard about Fortnite somewhere or another—that is, if you’re not playing it yourself. This app, launched in July 2017, has taken the gaming world by storm. This “battle-royale” game has players competing against one another warfare-style until the last player is standing. Because it’s free and it offers high-quality gaming, everyone from small children to adults are trying it out… and becoming addicted—even people who wouldn’t otherwise be interested in gaming. That said, it’s rated T for Teen in the USA.

Our Take

The warfare aspect and the fact that kids could be playing with people they don’t know from around the world make Fortnite less-than-ideal for preteens. However, the violence and gore are considered “cartoon violence”. Some game watchers say Fortnite sets the stage
for gaming to become a service across the board that alters traditional gameplay. If predictions hold up, Fortnite will change the nature of gaming in the same way Netflix altered how people consume video.
