Apple versus Epic. The Battle Royale.

The chief executive of Epic Games offered a granular explanation of the popular game #Fortnite to paint an expansive portrait of his company’s world on the first day of what is expected to be a three-week trial, pitting Epic against Apple in a fight over Apple’s #AppStore fees and other rules that could reshape the $100 billion #appeconomy.

Fortnite, Tim Sweeney said, “is a phenomenon that transcends gaming,” Erin Griffith reports for The New York Times. “Our aim of Fortnite is to build something like a metaverse from science fiction,” he said.

Metaverse? A court reporter needed clarification. It’s a virtual world for socializing and entertainment, Mr. Sweeney said. #wakeupimagine#sciencefiction#readyplayerone#metaverse
