The lights are on
We haven't heard much about Fortnite since our May cover story. That changed this morning, when Epic released a big batch of new screens and character renders, and a lengthy gameplay video.
The video doesn't provide much in the way of context. Instead, the footage pops you in the middle of battle. You'll get a good idea of how players can use traps to defend their constructions, while adding onto their forts in the middle of battle. There's a lot going on, so you might want to watch it a few times. When you're done, take a look at the images in the gallery below.

Looks like all kinds of fun, hackin mobs up with a scythe looked pretty badass. Sucks that its only on pc. Hope it comes to consoles as well.
Man That Looks So So Cool. I Could Build Stuff All Day, And The Combat Looks Way More Fun Then I Thought It Would.
I really hope this game finds its way to consoles eventually.
it lives. amazing. I was having serious doubts if this game was going anywhere or not. But what of Unreal Engine 4? Haven't heard much about it since they introduced their last demo. Not seeing any developers talk about it or even see that many games using the engine so far in this generation. Selling off their most valuable game property (Gears) seemed like a petty good indication they wanted to focus on technology and the Unreal Engine. So what's the real adoption rate for this engine at this point? Anywhere near UE3 was during this time the last gen?
This game is showing to have a lot of inspirations from Orcs Must Die, which was a superb game that my buddy and I played for hours. I'm surprised that I don't see more game journalists reporting on the similarities/inspirations.
The next Orcs must Die is changing its formula to be more like a MOBA game, which I don't particularly like. I'm much more interested to see how Fortnite develops and whether it'll continue to capture my attention. Hopefully they'll figure out a pricing model that is fair.
This is what Epic has been focusing all of their resources on for the past two years? This is Unreal Engine 4's big debut? (Crickets)
