Fortnite takes Horde Mode to a new level

by: Sean Colleli -

You can definitely see the Epic Games heritage in Fortnite. The upcoming co-op multiplayer shooter is the culmination of all the ideas they tried Horde Mode ever since Epic first implemented it in Gears of War 2. Fortnite takes it to a whole new magnitude, however. The stronghold building is far more robust than it was in the past couple Gears titles, and the art style looks strongly influenced by Team Fortress 2. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

 

 


Yes, it still exists. From the developer smart enough to attach chainsaws to guns ?? the living, action building game Fortnite is alive and kicking with new art, screenshots and gameplay video. There??s even a new logo!

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as ??the Storm.?? Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

TL;DR: Build forts. Co-op. Kill monsters. Find stuff. Craft stuff. Huge procedural worlds. Save the day. Bacon.

Since most of you will ask:
Fortnite is being developed exclusively for the PC right now, but may come to other platforms in the future.
Some players will be let into the game this year, with even more players in 2015.
