Fortnite has Over 3.7 Million Players, Over 500000 Concurrent

Fortnite Battle Royale 10 million

Epic Games has announced that Fortnite: Battle Royale has surpassed 10 million players since it released two weeks ago on consoles and PC, with the free-to-play mode surely grabbing the attention of players that either have (or haven't) played similar experiences like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and are looking for a new addiction. Thousands of accounts have since been banned.

This action follows on the tail of the company saying earlier this month that "addressing cheaters in Fortnite is the highest priority across Epic Games".

To see more information about Fortnite's Battle Royale mode you can check out the new infographic down below. "We don't want to give too many clues about what we're doing, but we are rolling out tools and will continue to do so".

Two players referred to as Mr. Broom and Mr. Vraspir are accused of violating the terms of service and End User License Agreement by cheating in Battle Royale.

Virgin Hyperloop One announced
Musk's hyperloop involvement is for now limited to potentially building the tunnels with his latest startup - The Boring Company. In addition, travelling at those speeds means that any fault in the system would mean everyone on board would die".

Broom has been banned once and stated he's working on his own cheat for the game, and Vraspir was banned nine times. "Defendant uses cheats in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc in, the Fortnite game".

"Let's be straight for a second, nobody likes playing with cheaters", wrote Epic Games in a blog post last week outlining the company's stance against cheaters. As mentioned, these are just two cheaters in a game rife with violators, but the extreme steps Epic is taking to wipe out bad behavior certainly sends a clear message.

Both defendants are apparently associated with a website that specifically aids cheaters and are facing up to $150,000 in charges for statutory damages if convicted.
