Epic Games' long-session-based free-to-play shooter Fortnite has entered its first public alpha phase, letting a few lucky players get their hands on the game for the very first time. The Alpha runs until Dec. 17, and while it should be a blast for those playing, Epic Games warns that

"The game is still rough around the edges but we think it can benefit from your input even at this early stage."

If you weren't lucky enough to be selected for the alpha this time around, you can still sign up on the Epic Games site and try to get in on one of the future sessions. If you did get in, have fun!
