While Gears of War guru Cliff Bleszinski may have left Epic Games to start his own Free-to-Play focused studio, Epic Games is still around and still making third-person games last we checked. One of these games happens to be Fornite, the Free-to-Play third-person shooter which has players building makeshift strongholds by day and defending them against increasingly difficult hordes of monsters by night. While originally announced in 2011 as an Unreal 4 powered PC exclusive, today marks the first time Fortnite has shown its gameplay undergarments to the public. Check out the trailer above to see whats in store.
Some things I found interesting in the trailer:
- Building and editing structures seems incredibly intuitive.
- Players must erect structures to defend a power collector once activated.
- You can defend your base with a variety of traps.
- Enemies can sometimes lob other enemies on top of your base.
Other features confirmed but not seen in the trailer include Fortnite's MMO progression through the use of classes and individual character unlocks. Alpha signups have been live since April and players can still signup on the official site here
