UEFN experiences don’t always succeed at bringing players back to their maps. Our teams at Oni and SuperJoy created an experience that was highly replayable. We developed incentives that engaged players and kept them returning to our map for more, establishing Rocket Wars as a top UEFN experience.
SuperJoy Studios and Oni Studios devised a multifaceted solution that focused on engaging players, sustaining engagement, and community involvement. Our mission was to reignite the exciting feeling players experienced when they won their first victory royale. To play up that excitement, several features were introduced:
- Custom Victory Animation Screens
- Rare Animation Rewards
- Fortnite Creator Cameos: Noteable Fortnite creators like SypherPK, Ninja, Loserfruit, Courage, and LEGIQN made cameo appearances within Rocket Wars.
In order to keep players engaged, we introduced regular updates influenced by community feedback, hosted community contests, and invited players to tournaments. Ultimately, Rocket Wars was an experience developed with the Fortnite community in mind.
In the first week, Rocket Wars achieved remarkable milestones, with over 300K Daily Active Players and an impressive 2.6M Lifetime Plays.
