That's right. It's live. The (admittedly short) wait for Fortnite's free-to-play Battle Royale is now over. As of today, players on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One can all download the stand-alone game/mode.

As should be expected with any launch, there are a few issues popping up here and there -- the most notable seeming to have been with supply drops. But based on the Fortnite Twitter account, that's been taken care of.

It should also be noted that Epic has plans to swap out the Llama pack currently available in the store very soon. According to a tweet issued less than half an hour ago, they're pushing the update "soon". So, if you'd like the Super Melee Llama pack, you might want to hurry and grab it before the next pack appears.

there is 2 game types on fortnight 1 is PVE multiplayer and other is PvP so even if u all best gear on PVE u have 0 on the PVP server. you get 1min b4 match starts to work things out on the PVE side was a tut that helped you understand the game (its basic to understand click buttons remember what buttons do xD ). As for the game (PS4 i played only) it is a good game and ATM stops Teams which imo ruins games as if u get clan 20+ people they just goin to win easy (PUBG as ex)

Question, does this game just throw you into a match or do they have a tutorial or something?
