Announced in 2011, the third-person action builing game Fortnite from Epic Games will finally (but not completely) hit PC, PS4 and Xbox One as a paid early access version. More details, new screens and a 4-minute long E3 trailer after the jump.
FORTNITE FROM EPIC GAMES COMING TO PLAYSTATION®4, XBOX ONE, PC, AND MAC ON JULY 25
DON’T TAKE SHELTER, MAKE IT
JUNE 8, 2017 – Cary, NC – Epic Games today announced that Fortnite, its third-person Action Building game, will be available in paid Early Access for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac starting on July 25. Fans can pre-order or pre-register now on the official website at www.fortnite.com.
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. Epic Games debuted a new gameplay trailer today highlighting Fortnite’s unique mix of exploration, building, defense, and combat.
“Bringing Fortnite to life has been a true labor of love by a talented and dedicated team over many years,” says Darren Sugg, Creative Director on Fortnite. “We’re excited to share the experience and start playing along with more gamers in Early Access this summer.”
Fortnite Founders Packs give players entry to the Early Access Season, access to exclusive in-game events in 2017, and offers a huge value on stuff like Heroes, loot, weapons, and in-game boosts. Players who pre-order a Founder’s Pack will get a four-day head start beginning on July 21, along with the exclusive Storm Master Weapon Pack. Additionally, Epic Games has partnered with Gearbox Publishing to distribute a boxed retail version of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
@SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (18 minutes ago)
Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (32 minutes ago)
Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (41 minutes ago)
Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (43 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (1 Hour ago)
Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (1 Hour ago)
I bet a lot of BF fans are creaming over the fortifications as if it's a new feature when in fact it was in BF:PR nearly 13 years ago lol! (1 Hour ago)
