What’s it like to watch your favorite game overshadowed by a spin-off mode?

But recently, in the middle of all that, he tried something different. “We’re gonna play the new—well I guess it’s not new—but it’s new to me, Save The World,” he says. “It’s like the campaign version of Fortnite. I’ve never played it. I’ve never even seen videos on it.”
