“Fortnite’s ability to hold people in and keep bringing old fans back is amazing. With the release of its new “Zero Build” game mode back in March, the game has seen a massive fluctuation in its player base.”
Fortnite has been stealing the spotlight since its release in 2017. The popular battle royale has broken various records with consistency in holding a high player base. In Playstation’s recent blog post on their website, they revealed that Fortnite was the most downloaded free-to-play game on Playstation in April 2022.
Fortnite maintains top spot in Playstation’s most downloaded list
Fortnite has been competing against other popular battle royales such as “Apex Legends” and “Warzone” for a while now. Both of these games also came in the top five most downloaded free-to-play games on Playstation. Still, they did not surpass Fortnite for number one.
Apex, just having its “Apex Legends Global Series“, which was a massive $1 million prize tournament held in Sweden, has been at the top of its game. Apex currently holds itself in second place, directly below Fortnite.

Popular streamers such as Tfue and NickMercs have been seen streaming the game again, after not playing Fortnite for years. Its large rise in numbers has made it not only one of the most played and most downloaded games but also one of the most-watched games online again.
Epic Games takes Fortnite cheater to court; donates entire settlement to charity
"Selling compromised player accounts and cheat technologies puts people’s information at risk and ruins the experience for people who are playing fairly," said Epic in their recent statement on the issue. "We take the illegal sale of these items seriously and we’ll pursue all available options to make sure our games remain fun, fair, and never pay-to-win.”
Fortnite’s next move
Fortnite has been surprising the gaming world lately, bringing in loads of new players every single day. With their recent announcements of LAN events, such as “Dreamhack: Sweden“, the game only looks like it is going to keep growing.
Fortnite’s ability to still have the most downloaded game amongst others is nothing short of amazing.
This is exciting for Fortnite players alike, and gamers in general alike. As one game keeps growing, it grows the gaming community as a whole. This is also proof that a game can always make a large comeback with its player base.
