A Canadian law firm has begun proceedings to open a class action lawsuit against Epic Games.
Acting on behalf of the parents of two minors, Montreal-based Calex Legal filed a legal notice late last week, claiming that Epic Games knowingly created Fortnite to be as addictive as possible.
According to the filing, the two unnamed minors -- aged ten and 15 -- have both developed addictions to Fortnite, spending around $600 and $500 respectively on the game over the past year or so.
Citing the World Health Organisation (WHO) gaming disorder classification, Calex Legal highlights comparisons to both heroin and cocaine addiction.
"Human psychology and manipulation of the human brain has been the epicenter of Fortnite development process that has been specially designed to be highly addictive," reads the filing.
