Fortnite is an action, survival, and strategy game designed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows, and Mac. There is also a mobile version of the game (Battle Royal) downloadable from the App Store.
In its recent Battle Royal version, “Save the World”, Fortnite has become a must-have! It is available to children aged 12 and over, and its mobile version accepts up to 100 players. Users can play solo, duo, up to 4 teams, and the goal is to survive as long as possible.
In-app purchases are available and the game encourages players to make additional purchases if they want to acquire new items.
Its graphics are similar to cartoons, and game sessions last an average of 20 minutes. Although Fortnite is violent, the game isn’t particularly bloody. However, it can become addictive. There is always a player available, and children can be stuck for several hours.
That is why it is your responsibility as parents to supervise your children when they play. Talk to them about game addiction and teach them to stop when necessary.
While not being bad, the fact that Fortnite takes places online can expose children to inappropriate language or encounters with strangers.
