If you still haven’t lost your enthusiasm waiting for Fortnite game release date, you must love this horror survival a lot. The final date of the release is still not announced. Here’s what we know so far.
Fortnite Release Date
When does Fortnite come out? Epic Games announced Fortnite five years ago and the game hasn’t made much progress. Two years ago it was announced that they were going to make this survival free. Mac version had a closed test a year ago while there were rumors about another beta testing in the end of 2015. Now that 2016 is almost over developers promise they’ll launch it straight after Paragon is released. So is Fortnite dead? Hardly. It’s officially stated that the game will come in 2017.
Is Fortnite coming to PS4? Fortnite was announced as exclusive for PC. Nevertheless, the game’s lead designer Darren Sugg says that things will change and we can expect console release a bit later. He explains that the company just needs time to understand how to interact with new technologies of next-gen console. Darren also says that they do develop console version but they still need to learn more about new consoles.
Time Kills Potentially Bright Ideas
Time is never good for a game! I don’t mean that new releases should come every day, no.
But when it takes more than five years a potentially good idea may die. This is the case with Fortnite. When they first announced it, it was great. What do we have now? Hundreds of games about zombies. Left 4 Dead, 7 Days to Die, Call of Duty, Contagion, DayZ. Zombies are everywhere. Do you still think that Fortnite will be a strong fighter in this competition? I don’t think so.
This is a cooperative game with Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft features. Since it’s a survival you need to explore recourses, build up shelters and fight against waves of monsters. During the daytime you need to build your fort to protect yourself, when the night comes you have to defend it. Building is the centerpiece of the game. There’s a lot of loot which you can dig up from underground. You can use such weapons as shotguns, sniper rifles and katanas.
Fortnite Gameplay Trailer
There’re four main classes in the game. These are Commando, Ninja, Constructor, and Outlander.
Commando is good at assaults. They usually carry heavy weapons such as rocket launcher.
Constructors are excellent at making tools but they’re rather slow. They’re also good at defending skills and they build forts faster than others.
Fortnite System Requirements
Developers haven’t announced Fortnite PC system requirements but they say that this game is going to require a lot in fact. Some sources predict that you’ll need around 8GB of RAM at least which seems to be unrealistic. Fortnite Mac version will also be available.
