Build a stronghold to keep the monsters out in Fortnite

The world has ended… somehow. And you’re among the few human survivors in a sea of disagreeable monsters. What to do other than to regress to your childhood and make the swankiest fort ever?

In Fortnite, an upcoming title from Epic Games (Gears of War, Paragon), you’ll trade up your old blankets and pillows for sturdier construction materials. You and your fellow players will build bases, defend them from the monster population, loot all of the loots, and occasionally get into a scrap with your fellow gamer. Currently the title is in an ongoing alpha test, and if you’re interested in participating, you can apply on the website.

Regarding Fortnite’s planned free-to-play business model, Epic Games stated: “We want folks to be able to play the entire game and have a fun, complete experience without having to drop any cash, and we are designing the game with that in mind. Anything we put in the game for you to buy will be icing on top of other delicious icing already on the cake.”

I got into the alpha or beta or whatever they’re calling it last week and the game is actually pretty fun. My biggest complaint is the lack of character creation. There are different classes you can choose (like soldier or engineer) but you can only decide if they are male/female – no customization. This was weird to me because since you can choose the gender, I don’t really view the Engineer, for example, as a character like the Heavy in Team Fortress 2. But since I can’t customize his appearance, I don’t view him as an in-game avatar for myself either. I would like for them to either go all in on character customization or remove gender choices like in TF2/Overwatch – no half-measures. I would prefer the former for this game.

The game as a whole seems pretty polished from the few hours that I played. It has voice-overs, missions and everything. UI is cluttered but Epic should just release the game into early access, imo.

sounds interesting, and sounds like it could break the mold of survival games being nothing but  griefers, (i play H1Z1 alot) 

i loved the idea behind Dayz and H1Z1 but the zombies are an after thought

Valhalla Awaits Epic finally found direction for Fortnite and its improving with every patch. I’m playing beta for 2 months and it’s pretty good.

mukk agemyth It is not a problem that they posted this. I was just curious why now all of a sudden when they still aren’t really promoting the game or opening testing up.
Maybe they wanted to populate Fortnite’s tag page for future coverage? :P
