Fortnite Battle Royale is making another celebrity duo partners event (Fortnite Summer Block Party). Here’s everything you need to know.
Fortnite Pro-Am: Fourth Wave Celebrity Duo Partners
Not only does Epic Games know how to make great video games, but they also know how to market them. Their marketing changed the entire gaming industry. Nowadays, gaming companies continue the traditional marketing route of promoting their games via social media and TV. But, Epic Games takes it a step further and create major events which include celebrities that play Fortnite, and pair them with popular streamers. Of course, it all started when Drake played Fortnite Battle Royale with Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. After that, Fortnite simply blew up and went off the charts. Recently, Electronic Arts took a page out of Epic Games book and announced Battlefield V with Trevor Noah. Before that, celebrities didn’t play games publicly at this level. Gaming companies now understand the demographics of their gamers better than before.
