I took a trip through the mega popular Fortnite game booth at E3. For the folks who aren't familiar, Fortnite is an online battle royale style game where up to one hundred people slug it out at once, trying to survive to be the last one standing.
One of the largest booths at E3 this year, Fortnite shows no signs of slowing down. As an investment in esports, Epic Games plans on providing $100 million dollars in prize money for competitions in 2018-2019.
Fans of Fortnite line up to get a chance at hands on play at E3 2018.

Fans could take a chance on the Loot Llama bucking bronco machine at Fornite's E3 booth.
