Hey, Guys and Gals thought I would write a little review on Fortnite I’ve been playing this on Xbox One with a friend and I got to say It’s Addictive.
About the Game?…
Okay so Fortnite is a co-op sandbox survival video game developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games, the game was released as a paid early access title on July 25, 2017, and will be Free to play in 2018 and is released for Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
So to describe this game I would say as a co-op sandbox survival game It’s all about exploration, scavenging items, crafting weapons, building fortified structures, and fighting waves of encroaching monsters. Which sounds great and from reading that I went out and bought access to the Closed Beta which was £34.99 which Is the cheapest option to buy.
Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games said that this game is Mine-craft meeting Left for Dead and I think his words are spot on this game is basically that the building side is the main mechanic of the game as well as crafting items for your buildings.
With this game everything is customizable, Weapons, Buildings, Hero’s, Survivors it makes this game more complex and better with customization as you can loot a chest and find a weapon or find a weapon blueprint for you to use to build a better weapon to destroy the enemy with.
Above Is a picture of a base me and my friend were building last night as you can see there are a lot of traps in place for the enemy as well as brick walls. This game is so addictive we spend around an hour building a base before defending it against the horde.
With loot, it comes in all ranges from standard to legendary! The grey items are basic ones and Orange and Yellow are the best ones, so far I’ve only got Purple which is classed are Epic.
There are a few Hero’s you can choose from so that all players and be different but not only that they all have different abilities to make every character different and useful in different scenarios.
Okay so Building, Shooting and Defending what more do you want in a game your building expertise can come in handy from Mine-craft and Shooting from Call of Duty and defending from Zombies from games like that making this game fun to play and a blast to play if you have 3 friends to back you up on this game.
Also It may become free next year and I was told to wait for It but I’m so glad I didn’t I haven’t had fun playing a Sandbox game for a long time and this so far is great there are a few things that need improving like being able to change a material of a wall or door after its been build to make life easier as at the moment when you build something out of wood and you want to change It to brick you got to smash it down and rebuild be nice touch if they add the option to the game but its still in Beta so who knows.
Network issues I’m not even going to talk about as yes there has been a few issues connecting to the game but once again It’s in Beta It’s acceptable at this time.
All in all great game don’t wait for it to be free get it now!
4/5 Stars! Well Done Epic Games you have done well.
