Epic Games is Suing Fortnite Cheaters

Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite Battle Royale

Last week, Epic announced that Fortnite, it's multiformat game of building and defending bases, had amassed more than seven million players. TorrentFreak has obtained legal complaints filed in North Carolina federal court against two individuals.

I've reached out to Epic to see if we can get a little clarification on the number, and I'll let you know if it's forthcoming.

Developer Epic Games warned they were going to crack down on cheats and they weren't lying.

"We're exploring every measure to ensure these cheaters are removed and stay removed from Fortnite Battle Royale and the Epic ecosystem. Thousands have been banned and we have no plans to stop!" Broom, who has already been banned from Fortnite once, has publicly stated that he wants to create "chaos and disorder" within the game, while Vraspir has been banned nine times and continues to make new accounts to play it.

Epic alleges that its software has been modified in order to gain an unfair advantage over other Fortnite players, and it's being used in a malicious way "in a deliberate attempt to destroy the integrity of, and otherwise wreak havoc". This person is also alleged to have written code for the hacks, which may explain why Epic is suing this person. "As Defendant intends, this often ruins the game for the other players, and for the many people who watch "streamers".
