Fortnite Sells Over 500,000 Copies On Day One

Fortnite’s creative director, Darren Sugg, has taken to Twitter to share with gamers the news that Fortnite managed to sell over 500,000 copies of the game in digital pre-orders alone and that, with some refreshing optimism, they’re just getting started.

Fortnite is going to be a free-to-play game when it officially rolls out, though that clearly hasn’t deterred people from paying to get in early.
