Fortnite clocks 350 million users and throws a huge party


The Fortnite party bus is rolling down the street — are you on it? If you are, you’re in good company: The battle royale just cruised past its 350 millionth registered user with no signs of slowing down.

With a huge accomplishment like that, it’s time to cut loose and fancy free. Fortnite is throwing a massive “Party Royale” tonight at 9:00 eastern, with Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, and deadmau5 performing. Anyone who attends will get a pair of neon wings for their characters for free.

That party might make one player feel a bit better about his lot in life. Zenon, a competitive player from Brazil who was kicking all kinds of butt, was recently discovered to be a nine-year-old kid. This earned him a four-year ban from competitive play, which may seem unfair, but it’s actually for legal reasons. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) restricts companies from gathering information on anyone under the age of 13, which is why this rule is in place.
