Fortnite is different from Fortnite: Battle Royale

Back in 2017, Epic Games released Fortnite as a four-player game set in a world where the universe was about to end. As PUBG entered the battle royale scene, however, Epic published Fortnite: Battle Royale as a separate game in late 2017 to compete with Tencent. 3)
