Fortnight is a Battle Royale-style survival shooter where players create a superhero avatar and compete with each other on a dystopian island.

It is one of the most popular video games in the world, with millions of players participating in its last player-level competition.

The game allows up to 100 players to fight individually or as part of a team on a virtual battlefield called Map.

New season updates traditionally take place every few months, and they often feature significant moments and even interactive experiences for players.

To mark the transition to the new season, large-scale events take place within the game – constantly watched by millions.

The new seasons in each chapter usually give Epic developers the opportunity to change elements of the map, change or update some parts.

As Verge points out, the release of a new Fortnight season was one of the most lucrative periods for the game, so the fundraising window was timely.

Epic’s donation follows the Humble Bundle – a company that sells video game packages online – last month raised $ 20 million (£ 15.2 million) for relief efforts in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Itch.io, a website for users to host, sell and download indie games, has raised $ 6.3 million for a bundle of nearly 1,000 digital items.

In the broader technology sector, the London-based Fintech company Revolut has announced a waiver of transaction fees for sending money to Ukrainian bank accounts.

At the start of the war, Hiroshi Mikidani, CEO of the Japanese e-commerce company Ragutan, said he would provide 1 billion yen (£ 6.1 million) to the Ukrainian government for humanitarian assistance.
