Fortnite is a co-op sandbox survival game developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly and published by Epic Games. The game has often been described as a cross between Minecraft and a shooter game. Survival is all that the game screams aloud.
What Is Fortnite?
Fortnite is a game that holds a record of 3.4 million people playing the game at the exact same time in a single weekend. I know that got you open-mouthed right now. Though the game is free to download, purchases have brought in a record $126 million in revenue for Fortnite‘s parent company, Epic Games. Interestingly, it get its money from selling in-game items.
Additionally, It is a game where the players fight each other, making it through a night of zombies, or surviving to the end of a massive battle. Players can also use the landscape around them to find materials to build shelters. Currently, Fortnite provides two distinct modes: access to Fortnite Battle Royale and the cooperative player-versus-environment “Save the World.”
The game tells of a day, 98% of Earth’s population suddenly disappeared. And how the remaining population found the skies covered in dense clouds, creating chaotic storms that dropped husks, humanoid zombie-like creatures, that attacked the living. The survivors found ways to construct “storm shields”, a field that cleared the storm clouds from immediately overhead and reduced the attacks from husks and used these to set up survivor bases across the globe. The player is a commander of one of these bases, charged with going out of the storm shield to find resources, survivors, and other allies to help expand their storm shield and find a way to return Earth to its normal state.
What is Fortnite Battle Royale?
The Fortnite Battle Royale is a free-to-play battle royale game. Fortnite Battle Royale is a competitive shooter between 100 players, alone, in duos, or in squads of up to four players, attempting to be the last player alive. They do this by killing other players or evading them. Players fight to survive as the play space slowly shrinks to force people into combat. Additionally, players can gain upper hand on their opponents by scavenging for weapons and armor. The main goal of the game is to be the last player alive.
