Gaming platform Twitch published that Fortnite, co-op sandbox survival game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, is the most watched game on the service.

One day, 98% of Earth’s population suddenly disappeared, and the remaining population found the skies covered in dense clouds, creating chaotic storms that dropped husks, humanoid zombie-like creatures, that attacked the living. The survivors found ways to construct storm shields, a field that cleared the storm clouds from immediately overhead and reduced the attacks from husks, and used these to set up survivor bases across the globe. The player is a commander of one of these bases, charged with going out of the storm shield to find resources, survivors, and other allies to help expand their storm shield and find a way to return Earth to its normal state.

Twitch viewers spend 5000 years in last two weeks alone. Throughout December there were 2000 channels with 40000 viewers on average. Numbers were even bigger in February, with 6500 channels and 150000 average viewers. Steam announced that game has 3.4 million players, which is closely related to the game’s popularity.

Battle Royale mode is maybe most viewed and most popular mode. Really weird phenomenon…
