The Unreal Era
Epic Games began their journey in 1991, but it wasn't until 1998 that they truly shook the gaming world with the release of 'Unreal'. This first-person shooter was lauded for its advanced graphics, unique gameplay, and the pioneering Unreal Engine. This engine has since become a cornerstone in the development of countless games across the industry.

It was a commercial success and further solidified Epic Games' reputation in the industry.
Enter Fortnite: The Global Phenomenon

Originally launched as a cooperative survival game, it was the free-to-play Battle Royale mode that sent Fortnite into the stratosphere. Fortnite quickly became a cultural phenomenon, transcending gaming and influencing popular culture, from dance moves to clothing lines.
