Fortnite’s adding a museum about the Holocaust

Fortnite is most definitely a videogame, but the incomparable success of Epic’s battle royale has led to it becoming something of (sorry) a platform too. It wasn’t necessarily built for this in the same way that something like Roblox was, so there’s a seat-of-the-pants element to much of what Epic does with it, and one recurring and surprising theme is education. Fortnite has a huge audience, mostly young, and Epic clearly feels they could stand some fibre in their diet alongside the Ariana Grande concerts and Marvel jamborees. 

The most prominent example of this is the Martin Luther King Jr. interactive experience, March Through Time, where players can learn about the civil rights leader and the wider historical context of the racism he fought against: they can even watch a recording of his most famous speech. Now developer Luc Bernard, director of The Light in the Darkness (a game about a Jewish family in France trying to escape the Holocaust), has used Epic’s tools to build a Holocaust Museum in Fortnite, called Voices of the Forgotten.
