Today, I am really happy to present you a game I was really happy to know that it was coming to PC and of course I am talking about Fortnite. After playing only a few hours, I couldn’t be happier not only that we have the opportunity to review it but also that we are going to present why this title is unique! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available? Stick around and you will find out now.
Let’s start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. Fortnite is a co-op sandbox survival game and is about exploration, scavenging items, crafting weapons, building fortified structures, and fighting waves of encroaching monsters. Players will work together to scavenge items they can use for building, and defend their structures and objectives from the Husks. Building will be a core mechanic in the game, and there will be "a lot of loot" buried within. Players can build and edit each wall of their fort with a 3×3 grid, lay down stairs, roofs, and windows, sculpting them to suit a particular need. Due to this gameplay element, the game is described as "Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead" by Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games.
To begin with, the very first aspect that really surprised me is the graphics and in general the art work of the title. They are really sharp, unique and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The game is really vast and full of surprises. The world is never the same and each level is different from the previous one. There are a lot of quests, bonus quests and there is high replay value due to the fact that there are so many things to do. There are a lot of different modes and the difficulty escalates the more you progress in the game.
Moreover, I should also mention that there are a lot of different resources, weapons and loot. The skill tree is also enormous and each one grants you more and more effective abilities and upgrade’s the existing tools you have in your disposal. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, the game is in early access and as you can expect there are one or two things that need fixing. For example after you sent some heroes on expedition and it finishes, you can’t see right away if it is successful or not due to a bug that I am sure it will be fixed soon. Also, some quests need fixing in order to be easier to spot in the levels or to finish.
To sum up, after playing only a few hours of the game, I am really impressed with Fortnite. It is honestly AMAZING, worth checking out and I can’t wait to see how it will shape in the feature. If you want to support a game with a great potential well…buy it instantly.
