Step. Aside. Every. Game. On. Twitch! A new Knight or should we say King is coming to town!
The most watched game stream on Twitch right now is Fortnite Battle Royale! This is something we saw coming. Not taking away how its a huge deal as of the moment. There are a lot of great games which became first in the rankings. But what makes this feat so special is that the game isn’t even out of the beta stage. It’s still in its early process where the developers are trying to see what could work and not. Yet Fortnite now has a whopping 183,148 viewers. That is with the help of over 8,936 channels!
It dethrones the champion League of Legends who reigned in the spot for weeks. It doubled the viewership of its direct competitor which is PUBG. Garnering an average concurrent viewers of 141,783. It goes to show that people not only enjoy playing the game, but they also enjoy watching other people mess around or win with it.
Reason for its success and popularity as of the moment
This is known probably by everyone who follows both PUBG, ROS, or any other Battle Royale game.
Still, here are most likely the reasons why Fortnite became the most watched game stream on Twitch.
A reason would be is its updates every week. The weekly updates from the developers itself can make the players feel like they are being constantly heard, furthermore, the process of creating new things in the game reflects how it is influenced by the fans.
Next is, it’s still in Beta. This probably means that even though it’s now a popular game, it could be something bigger when the full version releases. It gives a different niche to it. The game is building. Who could have thought that Minecraft and PUBG fused in a game would be so much fun!
Lastly, it’s free. How could a free game be so good though? We have got to give props to where it’s due. PUBG was first in line before, so as other battle royale games. They are all great in our opinion, however, games will always rally their way to the top. Congratulations, Fortnite Battle Royale!
