Video game stories from other sites on the web.

An Epic games representative told GameSpot, "We have no plans for Save the World on Switch".

Video game addiction is a serious issue.

While the industry won't admit it, the game's success has also prompted some of the biggest games franchises to jump on board with both Battlefield 5 and the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 featuring their own variation on the Fortnite recipe.

The game has been endorsed by celebs, sparking fears among mental health experts its promotion is leading to record numbers of online addiction.

The girl was so addicted to Fortnite that she would sometimes wet herself instead of leaving the game, even momentarily, to use the bathroom, and attacked her father when he attempted to confiscate her Xbox.

Lopetegui replaces Zidane as Real Madrid coach
He also played for both Real Madrid and Barcelona, although he only played one league game for Madrid , and five for Barcelona. Zidane's resignation came as a big shock, as he had just led Real Madrid to a third consecutive UEFA Champions League triumph.

One night Richard found her in her room at night "sitting on a urine-soaked cushion playing the game". The girl reportedly hit her dad in the face when they took the Xbox One away, which they had bought for her back in January.

Later on, the girl became withdrawn and disinterested in prior hobbies, like going to the gym and taking ballet classes. The girl also used her parents' credit card to purchase Fortnite's microtransactions, spending about £50 each month. "She had fallen asleep twice in lessons and her grades were slipping", said mother Carol.

Keep hearing about "Fortnite" and don't know what it is?

According to a report by The Mirror, the parents first noticed signs of addiction after she wet herself during a 10-hour long binging session on the survival game developed by Epic Games.

Fortnite's most popular format is the Battle Royale, in which 100 players fight each other until one is left standing.

Though it is a shooting game, no graphic violence is shown.
