Fortnite Sets New Record with 44 Million Players in a Single Day after Reintroducing the Original Map

Epic Games’ phenomenally popular battle royale, Fortnite, set a new record by attracting over 44 million players in a single day, as announced in a recent tweet. This enormous surge in player engagement can be credited to the reintroduction of the original map, featuring fan-favorite locations like Tilted Towers and Loot Lake. The event, aptly titled “Fortnite OG,” brought back the nostalgia, helping Fortnite reach its historic peak.

According to third-party data from Fortnite.GG, the game witnessed an all-time high peak concurrent player count of 6,172,463 during this period. Launched on November 3 and running until December 2, Fortnite OG takes fans on a trip down memory lane with familiar battlegrounds that made the game a global sensation.

In an official blog post, Epic Games emphasized that each major update throughout the Fortnite OG event would “bring different phases of Battle Royale’s past, starting with Chapter 1 Season 5.” This means that returning players can re-experience their favorite in-game moments while fostering a sense of community among old and new players alike.

It’s important to note that while the event has garnered immense attention, the Fortnite V-Bucks pricing has seen some changes in recent weeks. The cost of in-game currency was increased in several regions, including the USA and countries using USD in Fortnite, as well as all Eurozone countries. Despite the pricing adjustments, players have embraced Fortnite OG wholeheartedly, appreciating the nostalgic trip back to the classic map.

As Fortnite continues to make waves in the gaming industry, the incredible turnout for Fortnite OG serves as a testament to the game’s enduring popularity and its ability to engage players through creative events. With over 102 million hours of gameplay recorded in just one day, Epic Games has truly set a new benchmark in gaming history.
