The keys are clicking, and the controllers are turning. You know that sound… the original Fortnite is back, and it is more popular than ever! 

Nearly six years ago, Fortnite was released to the public. Many individuals anticipated playing the game on its release day of September 26th, 2015. Many people around the world were playing Fortnite, getting on right after school, and staying on for countless hours. This continued for about three years with them having a lot of fun. 

Slowly, small changes were put into the game, making many of its players put the controller down and not play anymore. Players were waiting and demanding the return of the original map; after countless years, it is finally back. It has more activity than it ever has had in all six years of being around, especially here at CHS. The old map had much fun to it that many original Fortnite players loved, some may describe it as better graphics or better location marks on the map.

Jordan Medellin, a junior here at Concord, explains his excitement over the return of the original Fortnite map. He says, “Honestly, it is a great season; you get to hang out with the guys and bring back some good old memories.” When asked about how much it relates to the old times, he states, “It brings back so much nostalgia; it’s just so unique, and it brings back so many memories, honestly.”
