Excluding the astronomical turnout of over 11.6 million users during a special event day, Fortnite’s latest record was attained due to the inclusion of new game modes within its universe. The Rocket Racing and Lego mode allows players to experience in a way that the title hasn’t seen before bringing a breath of fresh air to it.
Lego Fortnite, a survival sandbox game, piqued the players’ interests and creative faculties due to its impressive mixture of Lego characters, collection of items, building, and monster encounters. Rocket Racing on the other hand is inspired by Rocket League, allowing users to hit the wheel in adrenaline-fueled vehicular sports.
