Fortnite and PUBG have been worldwide runaway successes. Both games have an arena-style survival concept, called “battle royale”, where 100 gamers are dropped onto an island to fight each other for survival.
From as little as $5, players can enroll on the site to learn survival skills and how to choose the best landing spots and guns.
Fiverr makes money from commissions by connecting people with professionals offering various services on its freelance services platform.
Along with game coaching, buyers and sellers can trade “gigs”, or services in 30 categories ranging from developing a game to polishing game streaming on platforms such as Twitch.
Fortnite was launched in 2017 and its popularity has pushed the valuation of its publisher Epic Games to $15 billion in a funding round last year. Gamers have also flocked to Electronic Arts Inc’s Apex Legends and Tencent Holdings Ltd’s “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (PUBG).
The numbers of gamers is expected to rise more with the launch of Apple’s subscription-based game service Apple Arcade this fall and Alphabet’s browser-based video game streaming service Google Stadia.
