Fortnite has added yet another string to its bow of accomplishments, with the Epic Games title surpassing League of Legends as the most watched video game on Twitch.

The battle royale title achieved the milestone in only the past few weeks, with Fortnite streams collectively notching up 5,014 years, 110 days in terms of viewership. By comparison, League of Legends raked in 4,538 years and 26 days, and has rarely up to this point slipped below pole position.

In terms of direct competition, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds can't quite touch Fortnite's Twitch streaming success, with figures for Epic Games' title almost double that of Bluehole's effort. It's also worth remembering that Fortnite recently surpassed PUBG's concurrent player record on Steam.

Fortnite is available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and as of January this year had amassed an impressive 40 million downloads worldwide
