Fortnite is … everywhere. Let's be real. Epic Games‘ entry into the Battle Royale world has taken the gaming community, and the entertainment industry, by storm. From celebrities gushing about it, to over 1 million dollars on the line in eSports, this title is not going away anytime soon. Apparently it's not going away in Minecraft either, because one fan took it upon themselves to recreate the entirety of the Tilted Towers area within the fun building game.
For those that may not play Fortnite, Tilted Towers, is an area in Battle Royale that is the bane of many people's existence. It's where everyone drops and it's pretty much one giant death trap. To recreate it in Minecraft, I'm imagining the soothing sounds of the title's soundtrack and it's making it a little easier to let go of that ingrained hatred that I have for this map location. Still, it is pretty neat to see what players come up with in this building game, especially given that I can barely make a simple house with four walls that don't collapse.
Some people just don't have it. Me. I don't have it.
