Drake Breaks Live-Streaming Record on Twitch Playing "Fortnite"

That's major no matter how you look at it, and developer Epic Games wants to explore this concept even further.

The stream drew in over 635,000 concurrent viewers, almost 250,000 more than the previous record for a non-tournament stream held by Dr. DisRespect. The achievement was possible with the help of rapper Drake when he joined the pro gamer's live stream.

A livestream of internet mogul Kim Dotcom, an National Football League star and rappers, including Drake, playing a video game has broken records with more than 600,000 people tuning in. After this huge news trending worldwide on Twitter, Epic Games released the beta for iOS, mobile, and iPad this morning with invites sent out to the players who signed up for it.

"Seeing a top gamer and musician come together on Twitch and unite their large and passionate communities is a cultural moment in terms of building awareness around the appeal of social video and it's only going to grow from here", Kate Jhaveri, Twitch's senior vice president for marketing, said in a statement. It also promised details on competitive play's first season will be shared in the next few weeks. His Jamaican-inspired track One Dance remains the second most streamed song ever on Spotify. Rapper Travis Scott and National Football League player Juju Smith-Schuster also joined the live stream, according to The Verge.

Bridges had less than five points when the second half began, and he scored 19 of Villanova's first 24 points of the second half. Virginia Tech also made its second straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament , the first time it has done that since 1985-86.

Twitch, launched in 2011 and bought by Amazon three years later for almost US$1 billion (RM3.9 billion), has increasingly put a focus on music, with the DJ Steve Aoki notably contributing to a song library for the gamers.

Stats show that Ninja averages 70,000 live viewers per stream but recording 630,000 is incredible.

Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS devices, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

That's why it has now announced something called "Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am", which will take place during E3 in June.
