Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite is a global phenomenon.

The online shooter developed and published by Epic Games is currently the most popular video game in the world, and tons of pro athletes have gotten in on the action.

Orlando Magic small forward Terrence Ross, a bonafide Fortnite addict, described the general premise of the game to Bleacher Report earlier this year.

"Basically, it's like the Hunger Games," Ross says. "One hundred people on a map, survival gameā€”find your supplies, weapons, materials. And basically after that, it's every man for himself."

The game has become so popular among pros that the in-game virtual celebrations can now often be seen during real competition.

French soccer player Antoine Griezmann broke out the game's popular "Take this L" dance after scoring in the 2018 World Cup final.

The Washington Post recently published an article detailing how many pro teams are now legitimately concerned that the game is detrimental to their players sleep and recovery habits.

While most athletes do battle on the Playstation 4 or Xbox One version's of the game (which is free to download), it's also available on iOS and Android devices.

No doubt many pros are also getting their Fortnite fix on-the-go by dropping in via their mobile devices.

Just how much do athletes love this game? Los Angeles Lakers guard Josh Hart once told "The Dan Patrick Show" it's "tough" for him to decide whether his first win in Fortnite was more exciting than winning a national championship at Villanova.
