Fortnite's latest season ending event pulled in a record 15.3 million concurrent players, according to developer Epic. 

The company shared the milestone in a tweet, where it revealed that 3.4 million people also watched the event unfold on YouTube Gaming and Twitch. 

The finale to Season 4, which told a superhero-themed narrative called 'Nexus War,' saw players band together to take down Marvel super villain Galactus.

The one-time event took place on December 1 at 4pm ET, and was open to players on all platforms except iOS -- where Fortnite remains stuck in Season 3 limbo due to Epic's ongoing legal dispute with Apple.
