It’s Time To Make or Break
The Storm came without warning and wiped out 98 percent of the world’s population in a flash. Poof. Adios. Sayonara. Then came the monsters, wave after wave, night after night. Destroying everything in their path.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. In an abandoned missile silo, we’ve found one of our first weapons against the Storm … you. We’re looking for a few good commanders like you to help make a difference, push back the storm and protect those among us who are unable to protect themselves.
Explore the world. Rescue survivors. Make hundreds of guns, swords, and things that go boom. Make impregnable forts. Tastefully decorate with sniper perches, poison gas traps, and jump pads. Take back the world. You know, the usual. And be sure to invite your friends. Welcome to Fortnite.
Developed by Epic Games, the only company smart enough to attach chainsaws to guns, Fortnite is the Action Building RPG powered by Unreal Engine 4. Fortnite allows hardcore shooter fans, master treehouse builders, and katana-slicing ninjas to play in the same, beautifully realized world for hundreds of hours. The forecast for the world of Fortnite calls for new threats and the means to fight them every few weeks.
- Hero Complex - Recruit and train commandos, ninjas, constructors, and outlanders to take on the monster hordes. For your most dangerous missions, assign your biggest badasses to Hero Squads and take back Earth together
- Design and Conquer - The revolutionary building system allows you to create extravagant forts while juggling frenetic combat. Lure the monsters into devastating traps that use poison darts, metal spikes, and sentry guns-but build wisely. The monster hordes can smell design flaws like fresh meat
- Master the Craft - Use scavenged resources to craft ridiculous weapons like homemade sniper rifles, hydraulic mining axes, and launch pads that send monsters flying. As you move your heroes up the skill tree, unlock schematics for even wilder weapons of DIY destruction
- Make Friends - With seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op play and procedurally designed maps, Fortnite is fun for shooters, builders, explorers, and ninjas alike
