Parents Paying ‘Fortnite’ Tutors $20 an Hour to Help Their Children

Parents are taking their children to “Fortnite” coaches to improve their chances of securing a Battle Royale win, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Parents are paying up to $20 per hour to help their kids improve their skills in “Fortnite”, Epic Games’ phenomenally successful free-to-play Battle Royale game.

“Fortnite” – which is out on iPhone, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – encompasses a “Hunger Games”-like battle which pitches 100 players against each other, either alone or in small teams. The team or player that survives until the end wins the match.

According to those parents, some children are feeling pressure not just to play with their friends, but also succeed.
