We knew something was coming today after both Game Informer and Epic Games teased their fans on Twitter yesterday. It turns out the grand re-reveal is for Epic’s free-to-play PC game Fortnite running on Unreal Engine 4. Epic hasn’t announced if it’s PC only, or if it’s also coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Fortnite features the cooperative third-person shooter core Epic Games is known for, but rather than throwing you into scripted events and corridors, the game challenges you to explore the environment for resources and build fortresses while fending off waves of attackers at the same time. With an RPG-like progression system, Diablo-like looting, multiple campaigns of varying lengths, procedurally generated worlds, and the promise of player vs. player battles, Epic is offering plenty of replayability that it hopes will provide the game with a long lifecycle.”
