Globally, Fortnite has gained a lot of traction. One of the most popular multiplayer battle arena games in history quickly became worldwide. The game’s developer, Epic Games, has offered Fortnite in many languages over the years because of the game’s popularity. The language can be changed in Fortnite with just a few clicks or taps.
