Fortnite bags 15.3 million concurrent players in biggest live event ever. The Fornite Galactus event allegedly had 15.3 million concurrent players yesterday.
Fortnite took to Twitter to announce that the live event was the biggest the game has ever had, with 15.3 million players joining forces to fight Galactus in-game, while 3.4 million people watched on YouTube Gaming and Twitch. Twitch hit a peak of 1.5 million viewers in the Fortnite category last night, before the site broke for a short time. It’s safe to say that Fortnite broke the internet once again.
The Fortnite Galactus event was a special interactive mission which saw players battle the giant Galactus along with iconic Marvel heroes including Iron Man, Wolverine, She-Hulk, and Thor who all fought alongside players. The event even had players driving their own Battle Bus in first-person while shooting down explosive drones. It even had players fly their way up Galactus’s arm, bobbing and weaving drones while avoiding obstacles, the entire section felt like you were about to destroy the Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope, and it was quite impressive.
The Galactus event saw the end of Chapter 2: Season 4, and introduced the new Fortnite gameplay trailer, which includes The Mandalorian himself.
