Fortnite: Here is What Happened During the Cube Event

What is it that makes this game so immensely popular, and how did it come to be?

The National Football League has partnered with Epic Games, the creator of Fortnite, on a deal that will allow characters in the game to suit up in NFL uniforms starting this Friday, November 9.

"Fortnite" will also have NFL-themed gliders, emotes and resource harvesting tools. Additionally, players can use any jersey number from 0 to 99.

An increasing number of online multiplayer games are opting for "one-time only" events on their maps along with freakish in-game phenomenon.

On the heels of Fortnite's popularity, Epic announced it had raised $1.25 billion that would give the game's producer a value of almost $15 billion. You can also change the visibility for most HUD elements, as well as grid snapping. For example, Epic Games will re-introduce building from the quickbar buttons.

There must assuredly be Arizona Cardinals fans who play the extremely popular videogame, Fortnite. While the Fortnitemares event may now be over in Battle Royale, the Halloween spirit carries on in one of this week's LTMs, a brand-new mode dubbed Team Terror. Were you in-game when the Fortnite Cube exploded?

Finally, Epic Games is working to reduce the update size of its patches. However, you might see some of them sooner than others.

"Complete these challenges before 1PM ET, November 11 (6PM UTC) to earn the Lil' Kev Back Bling" says Epic.
