Fortnite: Battle Royale is a massively multiplayer online sandbox shooter game with a terrible action, craft and fortress construction. Here you will not only feel yourself as a survivor in a post apocalypse with zombies, but also as an engineer, building your fortifications. In general, the project can be described as a mixture of tactical shooter and Tower Defense in the MMORPG shell. The graphics here are cartoony, but the visualization is really good, but in order to enjoy the game to the maximum, you need not a weak PC, preferably above average in terms of hardware parameters. You can also compare this project with the improved game Minecraft, where they removed all the squares, replacing them with a good picture, adding legions of zombies there.
It was necessary to begin with the fact that the game Fortnite: Battle Royale is the creation of one of the most famous developer companies Epic Games, which gave fans such hits as Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. It works on a modern and powerful Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine, thanks to which they managed to create such a fun and impressive atmosphere. The game is multiplatform, there are versions for Windows, Mac OS, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gaming consoles. In addition, you can find its official page in the catalog Steam. By the end of 2017 there were more than 20 million accounts, just then the developers made free access to everyone on PvP.
Developers of Fortnite more soared over the very picture and game mechanics, and the plot was very simple and predictable, as for most stories, where there is apocalypse and zombies. And so, the story was next, a meteorite fell before the purple clouds that burned out all life. After that, people began to turn into the walking dead, and blue and purple monsters appeared. Cities are destroyed, and a handful of survivors fighting for their lives, arming themselves and building defensive structures from all sorts of trash and everything, do not forget that our main enemy is a zombie.
Interface and control
The interface here is simple and convenient, as befits a shooter, without unnecessary bells and whistles, only the necessary elements. In the menu, all the tabs you will be familiar with, such as a hero, ammunition, armory and a shop, there will definitely be no problems with it. And in combat mode, as in any other shooter, there are two scales: armor and health, as well as the number of ammunition in the store. The game zone is completely free, the field of view is not overwhelmed with all sorts of menus and windows as in a typical MMORPG. Regarding the management, then the thirdperson view of Fortnite, you move like in all shooters with the help of WASD, you can jump and squat, you will aim and shoot with the mouse. There are hot keys to which you can put the necessary skills. At the expense of weapons that you can take with you, you have a choice of one cold and four firearms, as well as grenades. And if resources allow you, you can build all sorts of designs during the battle.
The gameplay in Fortnite is very similar to Left 4 Dead with the only difference that there is no need to search for shelter, but you can build it yourself, thanks to which many materials and details are scattered around the location. And so zombies are the main characters of the game, for their destruction not only axes, katanas, swords, machine guns, pistols are provided. But, as well as traps, you can even make some corridors of death and direct the flow of zombies in the right direction for you. The first available mode for the player is the cooperation of their four people against the crowds of zombies on the PvE card. The main mode is PvE, and PvP in the face of the royal battle is secondary, since zombies and houses are the main play line. Moreover, in the free version only one mode is available and this is a meat grinder with other players called “Battle Royale” to get access to PvE, you need to buy one of the sets, donation in the game is currently not provided. Thanks to the Unreal Engine 4, all the battles are very fast and dynamic, so you definitely won’t get bored. And the move of the developers to make the cartoon graphics was good, since the game is very funny.
