I have to admit i didn’t know an awful lot about Epic Games new IP “Fortnite”, but after watching the trailer and learning more about the game, this is now slap bang in the middle of my radar! Fortnite launches on Xbox on July 25th in the early access Game Preview program.
In Fortnite, players team up to build massive forts and battle against hordes of monsters, all while crafting and looting within giant worlds where no two games are ever the same. With E3 looming, Epic Games debuted a new gameplay trailer highlighting Fortnite’s unique mix of exploration, building, defense, and combat.
“Bringing Fortnite to life has been a true labor of love by a talented and dedicated team over many years,” says Darren Sugg, Creative Director on Fortnite. “We’re excited to share the experience and start playing along with more gamers in Early Access this summer.”
Fortnite Founders Packs give players entry to the Early Access Season, access to exclusive in-game events in 2017, and offers a huge value on stuff like Heroes, loot, weapons, and in-game boosts. Players who pre-order a Founder’s Pack will get a four-day head start beginning on July 21, along with the exclusive Storm Master Weapon Pack. Additionally, Epic Games has partnered with Gearbox Publishing to distribute a boxed retail version of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
