Fortnite becomes most watched game on Twitch

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Over 5000 years of cartoon battle royales watched in just two weeks.

The indomitable popularity of Epic Games’ Fortnite has earned it another medal today after pipping League of Legends to become the most watched game on Twitch.

Fortnite viewers have now clocked up a total of over 5000 years of stream time over the last two weeks, overtaking League of Legends which sits just above 4500 years over two weeks of watch time.  LoL still holds the record in the longer running time spans, but we’ll likely see that slip away as Fortnite’s popularity continues to grow.

The support Epic Games has shown Fortnite seems to be reaping dividends for them, with the game more than doubling viewing figures for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and overtaking its concurrent player count.

Of course, Fortnite holds the distinct advantage of being free, but the free updates with weapons, outfits, map changes and more have helped greatly on its path to success.

Fortnite Battle Royale released in January and is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC for free.
