Nowadays, many middle schoolers are outspoken about the obsession over this amazing game called Fortnite. This is a game that can be played on a PC, Xbox, PS4, and now on a mobile phone. Fortnite is a game that consists of a character who must eliminate other players and remain in a safe zone that takes the shape of a circle. The last man standing wins the victory “Royale.” This game was created by a company known as Epic Games, and since its release, it has blown up in popularity with people of all ages. The game was released as a free game, and there is still no charge to play it today. Fortnite is easily the most played game today, so should this game continue to be free?

Some say Fortnite is monopolizing kids’ times these days because of their addiction to the game. Due to this game being free, it is easily accessible to kids and many people play until they win, which may take hours. Fortnite also allows kids to team up and play games together in a party in which they can communicate with each other about the game.  Fortnite’s popularity continues to be on the rise with no sign of slowing down.  Additionally, the majority of the players have nothing negative to say about the game. The producers of Fortnite ensure that its players stay entertained by adding new skins, axes and game modes. Fortnite took ideas from different developers and created an even more fun game.

Many people feel that this amazing game could easily come with a playing fee, but enjoy the fact that it’s free. Some feel that it should stay free because Epic Games ends up making money on other aspects of the game, like their store. “As long as they’re getting their money from somewhere and they’re getting this many people into the Fortnite community, it’s good that it’s an open community because everyone can get their chance at the amazing game Fortnite is,” said eighth grader Jorge Hernandez.

For now, the newest Battle Royale game remains free, and this may be exactly one of the reasons for all the hype.  Yet, it does come with more added features that you have to pay for, so Epic Games does not seem to be losing out.
