The online game has become one of the biggest success stories in recent years and many of us are totally obsessed with it's infectiously captivating gameplay. Soz bae!
Gaming is one of those things that can easily become an obsession. You can be playing a quick match of FIFA 18 against your mate online and then suddenly five hours later you realise you've missed 72 calls from bae and that pizza you were cooking is now a pile of cremated dust.
Well the newest game that's taking over streaming services everywhere is 'Fortnite'. Whilst it might be fun for some, it's ruining relationships elsewhere, so we thought we'd fill you in on exactly what the heck it's all about and why Drake is all over it...
'Fortnite' is an online multiplayer survival game that sees players team up to try and defend objectives by building fortifications around them whilst also killing creatures who show up to attack them.
There is also a Battle Royale mode which sees players fighting against each other in a battle to the death. You can get up to 100 players in one game and either go it alone or be part of a four-person team. Thinking about downloading it yet?
You can purchase 'Fortnite' on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, whilst you'll also need an internet connection to join other players in the game. You need Xbox Live Gold to play Battle Royale online but you don't need PS Plus. 'Fortnite' is availble to play on PC, however it's not available on Steam.
You can play cross-platform too, so you don't have to worry if you and your mates don't have the same console!
The standard 'Fortnite' game retails at around £34.99 in the UK, whilst the Battle Royal stand-alone version is free.
Drake recently joined popular gamer and 'Fortnite' player Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins on a live stream and sent the internet into meltdown. Everyone was talking about it and it actually set a new record number of concurrent viewers watching on Twitch at over 635,000 (previously 388,000).

Kylie Jenner's boyfriend and rapper Travis Scott then joined the stream alongside NFL player Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster and they all joined forces to create a super squad, whilst proceeding to break the internet.
They sure are and it's becoming a problem!
Maybe we should start getting into it too? Could be fun...

Fortnite is like that girl your boyfriend was friends with before you started dating and never stopped being close with him, and at first u didn’t wanna be crazy and have him cut her off but now she’s getting too close calling him honey texting him at peculiar hours of the night— (@hanbocaj) March 13, 2018
Is your boyfriend really your boyfriend if he isn’t sitting on fortnite for hours whilst you’re waiting for attention??— tamara (@tamararosej) March 13, 2018
