Our friends over at Epic Games, the creators of the Unreal, Gears of War, Shadow Complex, and the Infinity Blade series of games, have announced that they will be releasing their newest game, Fortnite, on July 25th. Fortnite is a 3rd person action building game where 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. Fortnite will be available in paid Early Access for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac starting on July 25. You can pre-order or pre-register for Fortnite today at the game’s website, Fortnite.
You can pre-order to get a Fortnite Founders Pack, which gives 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.
Check out the trailer, which shows some of the striking graphics, and highlights some of the more interesting aspects of the gameplay here:
