    Is Fortnite More Popular than Minecraft

    Every online game enthusiast has at least once played Fortnite and Minecraft. Both games have created ripples in the gaming industry. These iconic games give each other tough competition by trying to appeal to the hearts of the hardcore games.

    Fortnite entered the scenario almost 8 years after Minecraft. Yet, at present, it experiences 350 million players, way more than that Minecraft. 

    Although both games belong to different genres, players prefer to compare the two and establish superiority. If you are new in the gaming arena and are planning to try your hands on either of the two games, this quick comparison will give you a clear idea.

    Fortnite Vs Minecraft: Which is better?

    If we are to follow the data offered by Twitch and Google Trends, Fortnite is more popular as compared to Minecraft. It also mints more money than Minecraft, but it also enjoys higher concurrent players. 

                        Fortnite Twitter

    Fortnite has been maintaining a glorious track record from the beginning. Within two weeks of its release, Fortnite acquired 10 million players, thereby being one of the most successful projects for Epic Studios. Getting into the money matters- Fortnite made a revenue worth $9 Billion in 2018 and 2019. The 2020 pandemic further fueled an additional $5.1 billion in revenue. 

                              Minecraft Twitter

    On the other hand, Minecraft in 2020 could make a revenue worth $415 million

    Let’s have a quick look at the features that make Fortnite a better choice than Minecraft!

    1) Fortnite is free of cost!

    Fortnite feels light on the pocket. And that’s why players prefer spending time on this game rather than spending money on Minecraft. Experts believe that the affordability of Fortnite is the biggest reason that it enjoys a greater number of players than Minecraft. 

    2) Fortnite offers frequent updates

    Another factor that makes Fortnite more popular than Minecraft is constant updates. The developers ensure that all the bugs and glitches are taken care of through the array of updates that they offer. More updates keep the players happy and engaged.

    3) It has better-quality graphics

    Fortnite is renowned because of its exemplary graphics. With improved lighting and geometry, better reflections and shadows, as well as a realistic look, Fortnite boasts high-quality graphics. The Epic Studio team has again proved that they have eyes for details.

    4) Fortnite has no lag issues

    Players love the fact that Fortnite has no lag issues. Frequent updates and high-quality graphics make sure that players do not have to face lag issues. This makes the overall gaming experience more engaging. 

    On the other hand, Minecraft faces lag issues and often disappoints users. 

    5) There’s a purpose in Fortnite

    Fortnite is a challenging game. Purpose-driven gameplay makes the game all the more interesting for the players. On the other hand, Minecraft has no purpose, and the element of randomness makes the gameplay futile for the players. Missions and challenges make Fortnite better than Minecraft.

    In a Nutshell

    Both Fortnite and Minecraft have their own loyal fan base. However, Fortnite enjoys a higher degree of popularity. The available data also suggests the same. In case you wish to explore the best option, go for Fortnite. Once you have explored the fun elements of Fortnite, you can then move on to Minecraft and experience the same. Then you can make your own comparisons and arrive at a conclusion of your own.

    i disagree, Minecraft allows players to express their creativity in anyway they desire with whatever they want to build, whereas Fortnite doesn’t allow players to express their creativity with building whatever they want, and Minecraft will always allow new players to change the look of Minecraft in which new Fortnite players can’t change the look of Fortnite, Fortnite will only have one pathway – to battle others in their maps, Minecraft can really be anything..

    That is why Minecraft is WAY BETTER than fortnite,
    always has and always will be, it will never change

    1) Fortnite is free of cost! – Minecraft is Free of cost as well, (makes 6 perfect)
    2) Fortnite offers frequent updates – Minecraft Updates can express new ideas, creations and creativity,
    3) It has better-quality graphics – Minecraft has resource packs, texture packs, mod packs, data packs and more that makes the Minecraft more enjoyable than fortnite,
    5) There’s a purpose in Fortnite – Minecraft actually has a purpose, its purpose allows players to express their creativity in anyway they desire in which can change their ideas into new and even better creativity builds/desires

    6. Minecraft can be played anywhere, anyplace, and anytime, (you can play Minecraft in a plane or boat, or car or wherever) but you can only play fortnite online, there is no offline version and there will never will be, which makes why more players spend more time on Minecraft than fortnite

    Fortnite is just flat out boring right now and honestly can’t even play it for half an hour before wanting to switch Minecraft on the other hand I can play for several hours straight without getting bored it’s not even a competition Minecraft is blatantly better and is way more creative and has several more features then fortnite.

    This is honestly just plain wrong.

    1.fortnight is free of cost yes but minecraft(java) once you buy the game you can change the game to your whim free of cost.

    2.Im sorry have you not seen minecraft live and all the major updates? Minecraft updates at least once a year with new features

    3.So? You can literally make minecraft look like irl.

    4. Excuse me I thought we were talking about the game not your internet provider. Most minecraft lag is due to the quality of the device. Same with fortnight I played on my computer once I lagged like crazy.

    5. HELLO INTERNET WELCOME TO GAME THEORY. Have seriously not seen any of the Game theory minecraft videos? Theirs literally a way to beat the game, theirs also is a purpose to any world. Everyone who starts a world has a goal. Also have you ever heard of literally any minecraft YouTube? They have all done at least 1 type or another of speedrunning some aspect of the game.

    Also let me do some other points

    6. Servers. Minecraft has literally millions of servers from big public servers like hypixel to the elite ones like EchoCraft. You can do that in fortnight but not to the same degree.

    7. Minecraft is uncontested as the current most popular game worldwide. Fortnight has what? A million players? Garena free fire DESTROYS that number. Whereas minecraft continues to make massive sales each year. Fortnight had a great start but I’m positive if you crunch the numbers minecraft still destroys fortnight in copies sold, money made, and player base.

    8. I’m gonna get a lot of anger for this but nowadays most of the players of fortnight are edgy tryhards who are super toxic. Now let’s look at minecraft. Is it toxic? Sometimes but it’s not widespread at all. Even on major servers like Stoneworks Roleplaying server, the people are generally only rude in character.

    And no I don’t work for mojang or Microsoft.

    Guys trust me and hear me out do not play fortnite as it is not the game you want to play so join minecraft,it is the most popular. Fortnite is not safe for kids and minecraft is. It is really fun and you do not just need to shoot people in different maps. So if you are a part of the minecraft community help us get better than fortnite.

    Yes, agreed. Fortnite is a battle royale whereas minecraft is a sandbox simulation game that opens up a million possibilities to be creative.

    Minecraft is more addictive as it’s an endless game, whereas fortnight is only halfway up the list, but it’s loaded with violence, although it’s all cartoonish, rather than bloody or gory. We have a good read for you, please have a look: Why is Minecraft so addictive.
