Remember way back before Cliff Blesinzki left Epic Games he was on stage showing off his next title called Fortnite? The third-person Action Building game where you build a fort to help you fend off zombie hordes? I’m sorry to say this but I forgot all about in the more than 5 years since we first saw Fortnite and it came back flailing it’s arms at us this morning with a brand spanking new announcement and an E3 trailer to boot.
It’s set to arrive on July 25 to Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at a price with the final F2P version coming sometime in 2018. Yes. You heard that right. You can choose to buy it in one of 4 different bundles starting at $39.99 up to $149.99. Each bundle will give you access to various heroes, weapons/trap etc and you can get the game this July long before anyone who opts to go the F2P route in 2018. It’s looking polished and as though it could be a really fun gaming experience.
Check out the trailer below.
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.
