The staying power of Fortnite has been impressive to behold, and the service-title-to-rule-them-all is still defying expectations. First launching in 2018, the dominant shooter pulled in more than 44.7 million players in a single day with a triumphant return to Battle Royale's earliest incarnation.

Via Twitter, Epic Games thanked players for the massive turnout, stating that "yesterday was the biggest day in Fortnite's history with over 44.7 million players jumping in and 102 million hours of play".

Formally known as Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 5, "OG" sees a return to the original map and arsenal the game shipped with. It's only available for a limited time and available on virtually every platform, which is likely a big part of the reason for the massive surge in player count. Fortnite OG will run through until 2nd December, so if you want to nostalgically hot drop Snobby Shores one last time, you'd best get a wriggle on.
