Police Cars in Game – level 2

29-06-2020 15:00

Epic Games is a company that develops computer games, and its game, Fortnite, has more than 350 million players all over the world.

Recently, players and fans of the game noticed a change. Police cars did not appear in the game anymore. Epic Games removed police cars from the game´s visual images; however, the company did this quietly, and it refused to comment on the change.

Fans and media started to speculate why Epic Games did it. Some people believe that the reason is the recent death of George Floyd, who died after police arrested him. Epic Games made a public comment on this event, and the company supported people who protested against police brutality.

Difficult words: notice (to see something happen), speculate (to think of reasons why something happens), brutality (when someone is very violent towards somebody else).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
