Fortnites, the popular online arena game that has brought online communities to life, is coming to the TV.
The game, developed by Bungie, is set to premiere on CBC’s live television show, CTV2, Friday night.
It’s a move that will bring more people online and into the live action world of the show, said Dave Egan, vice president of programming for CBC.
“With a live show, people can get a better understanding of what’s going on, of the game,” Egan said.
They can see the real people behind the game. “
When people come in to our studios, we have a real live world they’re watching.
They can see the real people behind the game.
That’s something that’s really exciting.”
Live events are key to online communities and games.
The live action elements of the video game, like battle, are created through a live event that people are watching.
“People love watching live events because they have a chance to play in the real world,” Egon said.
It also helps boost online communities that are often more welcoming to newcomers.
“A lot of these communities are not always welcoming to new people, so a live video event can help them become more welcoming and it’s really valuable for them,” he said.
Egan and other producers said they are also excited to expand online gaming to the public in the future.
“We’re just getting started with the live events,” Eagan said.
With more people getting online and getting involved with online communities, the CBC hopes to be able to help bring in new audiences and provide a more active, live experience.
The CBC says Fortnits live events are coming to CBC TV in the fall, as well.
“In the future, we are looking to be adding more content on our live event platform,” Egunn said.
