Epic Games announced Fortnite late last year but at this year’s Comic-Con a little additional information on the title was revealed. For one, it’ll be a PC exclusive game and for… er… two, it is being built on the Unreal Engine 4, the first title to have that distinction.
Described as a “co-op sandbox survival game” by producer Tanya Jessen, Fortnite will see players scavenging for materials in order to build defenses against waves of monsters that are out to get players.
Building is really the core of the game. Everything you find allows you to build and improve your structure”
Apparently this building/combat title will continue to evolve after it is released (whenever that is) and some of those changes might alter gameplay extensively. A release date hasn’t been announced however but they are “…trying to put the game out as soon as we can.“
