Fortnite is a co-op sandbox survival game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly and published by Epic Games.

In Fortnite, players team up to build massive forts and battle against hordes of monsters, all while crafting and looting within giant worlds where no two games are ever the same.

While the Battle Royale portion of the game is free-to-play, the PvE aspects (known as Save the World) are not. Early Access for paying players was made available on July 25, 2017. Fortnite is for for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, PC, and Mac; Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch are available for Battle Royale only.

The below concerns content focusing on Save the World. While players currently have to purchase this content, it is expected to go free to play sometime in 2018.

Gameplay

The Storm came without warning. 98% of the world's population vanished... then came the monsters. Players lead the remaining Heroes in the fight to hold back the Storm and rescue survivors. They can explore the large, destructible world and build forts, craft exotic weapons, and find loot.

In Fortnite, players protect an object and build a fort around it. There are four classes: constructor, ninja , outlander and soldier. There is also a leveling system, weapons, armor, traps, llamas (lootboxes), and abilities. Players can play online, where there are three categories of participation: solo, duo, and squad.

Features

  • Heroes: Recruit and train soldiers, ninjas, constructors, and outlanders to take on the monster hordes. For the most dangerous missions, players can assign their toughest characters to Squads.
  • Crafting: Players can use resources to craft weapons like homemade sniper rifles, hydraulic mining axes, and launch pads to send monsters flying. As heroes move up the skill tree, they can unlock schematics for wilder weapons.
  • Design: The building system allows players to create extravagant forts while juggling combat. Monsters can be lured into traps that use poison darts, metal spikes and sentry guns.
  • Friends: The game has seamless drop-in and drop-out co-op and procedurally generated maps.

Notes

  • Fortnite was announced on July 12, 2012, to be the first game to utilize Unreal Engine 4[1]. It was originally stated by the developers that the game would only released for PC and/maybe next Gen consoles because Unreal Engine doesn't support 7th generation consoles.
  • Ashly Burch (Horizon: Zero Dawn, Life is Strange) stars as the voice of Ray, a quirky yet, very human, little robot that guides players through their adventures. Players also hear Phil LaMarr (Samurai Jack), Adria Arjona (Pacific Rim: Uprising, Emerald City), Amy Pemberton (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Andrew Kishino (Bulletstorm) among the talented voices directed by veteran actor JB Blanc (Horizon: Zero Dawn).
