Fortnite is an open world survival game developed by Epic Games in 2017 on the Unreal Engine 4. The Battle Royale mode has gained wide popularity.
The game was announced back in 2011 by Epic Games. The game, created by the author of the famous Unreal Tournament, immediately interested many studio fans. The following news about the game appeared only in 2014, the company said that the game will be free, and its closed alpha version will be available in December. Closed beta appeared in 2015 on Apple computers. And in 2017, the game appeared in early access, and any player could download Fortnite, but for a fee. In August, Epic Games confirmed that more than a million people have already played in Fortnite. Despite the fact that the game was selling well, the results did not please the game developers, and the company was looking for ways to make the game more popular. Such an opportunity was the creation of the Fortnite Battle Royale mode, which made Fortnite the most popular game in 2018.
About the gameplay
Fortnite is a sandbox of cooperative passing in the survival genre. When you first start the game, users are met by the character creation editor. In it, a player can rank his character in one of four classes: ninja, soldier, outlander, constructor. Each class has its own characteristics and a certain set of characteristics. For example, the constructor is capable of erecting buildings of enormous size, and the “ninja” class masterly possesses melee weapons.
At the beginning of the passage the player is given a different weapon. You can use ranged weapons (shotgun and sniper rifle) and passing (knife, katana). Players can use the function of creating weapons, as well as self-tuning skills.
The subject lines and game modes always delight users with their dynamics and detail of the surrounding world. To survive, it is necessary to build, strengthen, collect all sorts of useful resources and, directly, fight with opponents. The waves of the monsters are getting stronger with each approach of darkness, so during the daytime it is better to fully devote yourself to training. To avoid a lack of an arsenal, it is better to share the responsibilities of collecting it with your playmates.
It is better to prepare in the afternoon. Take up the study of locations, construction and strengthening. In the game you can build buildings of any type and for every taste. First, find the area in which you want to build a base. Take care of clearing the selected location and start building. Buildings can be erected from various materials: stone, metal or wood. And if your building suddenly turned out a little different from the ideal, then all the buildings in the game are amenable to adjustment. To collect the necessary resources for construction, you need to destroy the surrounding objects. If your hero has gained a certain “yellow ball”, then you have received a new level of collection speed and combat characteristics.
We are transported to the recent past, where the planet Earth is engulfed in a wave of cataclysms. Cyclones and storms hit our planet and destroy the world’s population. In addition, a virus appeared on the ground that turns all people into a local analogue of zombies. They are evil, which destroys and infects everything in its path. To survive in these terrible conditions and save the planet from extinction – people join together in groups and jointly defend themselves from the scourge. Subject companies are divided into missions that have a certain level of complexity. The map in missions is divided into 4 regions, and the game begins each time in different places.
