Fortnite is a fort-building, shooting game with zombies. It is also known as cooperative action building game. Players build a fort in a sandbox world, while defending and surviving zombies. Fortnite is more fun when there are more players playing the game.
Fortnite has a standalone mode of “Battle Royale”, where 100 players leap out of a plane onto a small island and then fight each other until only one is left. Players will play solo and survive while looking around for a weapon to defend themselves from other players who will try to kill them.
Fortnite was first revealed at the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards. Due to some comments and suggestions from famous game developers, game designer, Cliff Bleszinski realized that it was too early and needed more development.
At first, it was officially released July 2017 as a four-player cooperative survival game, developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly. The game was released July 25, 2017 as a paid game. Eventually, this year, it will be a fully free-to- play game. A player can access the game on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gaming console.
