"Fortnite Battle Royale" is currently the most popular video game and it keeps getting thousands of new players every single day. While Epic Games, the video game developer, did not reveal the exact number of total players for this month, the latest figure was 45 million in January. Considering that the game is available on even more devices now than it was in January, it is safe to say that it has surpassed over 50 million downloads.

Two weeks ago, Epic Games released the mobile version of "Fortnite Battle Royale," making it available for iOS users.

While the mobile port is not available on Android devices yet, there are many active mobile players who are enjoying it. However, this has created some problems as many students play the popular battle royale game in class.

Mobile 'Fortnite' has become a huge hit

Even though many players thought that the mobile port of "Fortnite Battle Royale" wouldn't be good, the fact is that the game has already become a huge success. It is not available for all iOS users either as there are some hardware requirements.

In addition, Epic Games is slowly rolling out more invites, and only a small fraction of players is able to play the game.

Considering that the game developer has allowed mobile players to send invites to their friends, this has helped with the growth of the mobile fan base of the game. A lot of students play "Fortnite Battle Royale" during a school class, and that has become a big problem for many schools and teachers. Recently, one teacher asked Epic Games to help him stop his students from playing the popular video game in class, and Epic Games delivered.

Epic Games helps a teacher

A week ago, Reddit user posted on the "Fortnite Battle Royale" subreddit, asking Epic Games to help him get his students to stop playing the game in class. "Mr. Hillman" wrote that he loved the game, but that his students wouldn't stop playing it in class. "Could you add this to the loading screen for a couple days to mess with them? ‘Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class,’” he added.

The game developer released 3.4 patch for "Fortnite" a few days ago, and Mr.

Hillman got what he wanted. Epic added a new tip on a loading screen, "Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class."

Once again, Epic Games showed that they care about the community and the feedback from it. While this loading screen tip wasn't a necessary change, it is definitely nice to see that such a big game developer cares about fans and players of its game.
