What is Fortnite?

Fortnite, a game played by over 250 million people. It is the biggest game at the moment. Many who played it claims it was a compelling experience. It is a third-person shooter videogame available on all consoles, including mobile versions. It is developed by Chris Dyl the Director at Epic games and the company People Can Fly. It was released in late 2017. On a story level you play as a survivor in a zombie-like apocalypse and you must gather resources and build forts, alongside other players. This fort-building mechanic is really what makes this game unique, with the ability to build and destroy most things in the game world. This allows for creativity including building massive ramps and ladders to cross the entire map of the game. You can also straight up fight this zombies, called as husks in the game by collecting weapons and ammo.

The game is both silly and vibrant in nature. Both weapons and enemies veer towards the ridiculous. When the game first launched, the default mode was called Save the World, where you can play in a four-person team and you must stop waves of husks, by storing up resources and building up your fort. However, a new mode to the game was released and this mode was standalone and is free to download, called battle Royale. This mode features 100 players in a match, where you can play either solo or in a group up to four people, and you face off against other real people, utilizing your shooting and fort building skills to be the last ones standing. As the match progresses, you must stay inside a giant circle that is slowly shrinking, so that you can’t just hide on the fringes and expect to win the game.
