Watch Things Get Built And Destroyed In Fortnite

Despite putting the game out in the open way back in 2011, Epic has remained relatively quiet about its cartoonish shooter Fortnite ever since. Now it's finally starting to put the game back in the spotlight by releasing promising footage like this new gameplay trailer.

The short clip shows off some of the game's fast-paced base-building and zombie-shooting elements. I don't know about you, but the Gears of War loyalist in me is really hoping that Epic is serious about finishing this new project up.

Epic said that interested PC gamers can apply for a spot in the beta on the game's website. The company didn't give any firm idea of when the game might actually come out, but it did say it plans to add more beta players later this year and "even more" come 2015.

Sigh. I guess I'll just have to keep playing horde mode until then.


    I lost all interest in this game when they said it would be F2P.

      F2P can work, but the balance is tricky.

      Damn I didn't know it was going to be ftp. I was really looking forward to this game. The footage reminds me of Orcs Must Die 2. If it's ftp then I wont bother.

      Jeez... having a game F2P hardly means its going to be BAD. In fact its a pretty good business model when it's done right; its just been ruined by so many devs abusing it.

        F2P always means its going to be more expensive than it would have been if you wanted all the content. What would have been 40 dollars for everything in the game becomes 400 things you can buy for 5 dollars each.

          Nope; it doesn't. Good free to play means you aren't hindered by not paying; but doing so will make things more convenient, or give you cosmetics or something that wont break the balance of the game.

          League of legends is the perfect example.

            To buy all of the content in LoL would cost nearly 2000 dollars. I literally used the words "Its going to be more expensive than it would have been if you wanted all the content"

              But you can still easily play for as long as you want without putting a cent in. The majority of that content in skins and aesthetic stuff; not something like a DLC pack that significantly affects gameplay. Unless you feel OBLIGATED to buy every skin in the game, it doesn't really make any difference.

              It's more than that :P my account is worth 3k last time I checked haha
