Fortnite Game Overview
Fortnite game is a B2P, action epic game foray into the world of sandbox survival games and is basically Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead, as the game prominently features both building and survival elements.
The premise of Fortnite game is simple, yet the game offers quite a bit of depth. Players gather resources during the day and build forts, lay down traps, and craft weapons to fend off waves of zombies during the night. It’s not all about co-op survival though, the game features a PvP mode that supports up to ten players at once as well.
Fortnite battle royale: is a player-versus-player battle royale game for up to 100 players, allowing one to play alone, in a duo, or in a squad (usually consisting of three or four players). Weaponless players airdrop from a “Battle Bus” that crosses the game’s map.
When they land, they must scavenge for weapons, items, and resources while trying to stay alive and attack other players. Over the course of a round, the safe area of the map shrinks down in size due to an incoming storm; players outside that safe area take damage and can be killed. This forces remaining players into tighter spaces and encourages player encounters.The last player, duo, or squad alive is the winner.
In both modes, Fortnite players can use a pickaxe to knock down existing structures on the map to collect basic resources that are wood, brick, and metal. Subsequently, the player can use these materials to build fortifications with, such as walls, floors, and stairs. Such fortification pieces can be edited to add things like windows or doors.
The materials used have different durability properties and can be updated to stronger variants using more materials of the same type. Within “Save the World” this enables players to create defensive fortifications around an objective or trap-filled tunnels to lure husks through. In “Battle Royale”, this provides the means to quickly traverse the map, protect oneself from enemy fire, or to delay an advancing foe.
