It took a lot of efforts and missed deadlines for Epic Games to finish this one. However, the result is a compelling story with rich visual content and a multitude of cross genres. Fortnite is a co-op tower-defense shooter game that will finally be released on July 24 for early access only.
Early Access for Epic Games’ Fornite Starts on July 24 for $39.99
The Fortnite production was first announced in 2011. However, the creative lead at Epic Games, Donald Mustard, confessed that at the time the idea of this game was only three-weeks-old. However, the picture was so vivid in their minds that they hurried to announce it to the world.
With this occasion, the studio will take advantage of the thrills of a new game to introduce a new payment method which is known as “free to play… later.” As the title goes, enthusiasts can get early access to the long-awaited game but for a price of $39.99. However, they can also wait another year when the game will be released free of charge.
The final variant will be released sometime in 2018. Therefore, the paid fee promises hours of fun with the beta version ahead of time on all platforms, be it Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Not only that, but fans who really can’t wait to enjoy the game can preorder the founder’s pack and get it three days earlier, on July 21.
The New Game Mixes Minecraft Mechanics with Tower Defense Combats
The game itself is a collection of hit gaming strategies. Players will have to harness materials for creating their forts which is similar to Minecraft. However, once the night kicks in, they have to leave their crafting skills behind and reach for their weapons. This is when zombies appear in an attempt to conquer players’ fort.
There is a smooth and addictive synthesis built around the two different game genres. On the one hand, players will want to build stronger ramifications and find better loot with each wave to be better prepared for the enemy. On the other hand, they will want to perfect their combat strategies and work better in teams.
