Then came the monsters, wave after wave, night after night. Destroying everything in their path. But it's not all doom and gloom. In an abandoned missile silo, we've found one of our first weapons against the Storm you. We're looking for a few good commanders like you to help make a difference, push back the storm and protect those among us who are unable to protect themselves. Explore the world. Rescue survivors. Make hundreds of guns, swords, and things that go boom. Make impregnable forts. Tastefully decorate with sniper perches, poison gas traps, and jump pads. Take back the world. You know, the usual. And be sure to invite your friends. Welcome to Fortnite. Expand

    Mastering Fortnite Battle Royale’s many systems is worth every second of investment. Whether you go it alone or queue up with a squad, even if you’re the first to die or you actually manage to earn the Victory Royale, Fortnite’s zany style and unique blend of shooting and building almost never offers anything less than an outstanding time. It may not be the first battle royale game, and it certainly won’t be the last, but Fortnite sets itself apart from the crowd by giving you the freedom and tools to express your own personal playstyle.

    If grinding for loot, shooting zombies, and building the coolest forts ever sounds like it’s up your alley, I can’t recommend Fortnite enough.

    Whether we're talking aesthetics or the accessibility of its gameplay, all is good for Fortnite, which provides a beautiful vision of what Battle Royale should be.

    Fortnite incorporates mechanics of survival, crafting and missions in waves. Everything is very well measured and addictive, but there are no surprises or innovation. The microtransactions come to break the balance, and you'll have to play too many hours to see your character really improve. It's better that you wait for the free-to-play version.

    The ultimate effort of the US home team is to combine the excellent experience of the third-person shooter with foundational elements of some of the most successful works of the last few years, in an effective and convincing manner, at least from the gambling point of view.

    Fortnite wants to cover more than it can. Its three pillars of action, construction and management are too independent. To make matters worse, it feels too focused on opening piñatas (chests) and pay-to-continue.

    Fortnite: Battle Royale is a fast-paced arcade alternative to PUBG, but it fails in the tension department. Its good fun when you play like you don’t only have one life, but that in and of itself makes it feel like an oddity that hasn’t quite found its identity yet.

    A lot of people will call Fortnite "overrated" or something like that but it's really good. Give the game a chance.

    Completely disappointed. This game feels old at its launch, everything is so confuse and controls are stiff and unenjoyable. Please!

    Seriously Epic? Are you just going to dump every game in development for this abominion? Fortnite, simply put, is trash, a game based solelySeriously Epic? Are you just going to dump every game in development for this abominion? Fortnite, simply put, is trash, a game based solely on stolen ideas. Gameplay is ENTIRELY luck based and far from competitive as some might say. The overall experience feels barebones: it's lacking content and feels soulless, it's designed like your average microtransactions based shooter. No wonder why most players are kids (getting scammed). This game is just looks and nothing else. Expand

    Overhyped garbage, but hey atleast it keeps the kids playing something so other people can play games without being teamkilled and yelled atOverhyped garbage, but hey atleast it keeps the kids playing something so other people can play games without being teamkilled and yelled at in the headset.

    But seriously, why is battle royale even considered an esport? Survival as a sport, HAH.

    Be sure to steal more dances and characters from movies epic. Very good job.

    Games full of hackers and promotes aggressive behavior on how unfair it is. Just make it auto aim for everyone and dont have to worry aboutGames full of hackers and promotes aggressive behavior on how unfair it is. Just make it auto aim for everyone and dont have to worry about it. Pc players are most of the hackers and aim assist on ps4 dont work anyway. People are now believing in that the reviews are fake on how positive on tv and other websites. Most of the reviews are mostly negative and fortnite paying people to do positive.

    For the Story, its not worth 40 or more dollars. Its supposed to be free now but its not and they keep on saying things and putting it off to milk it for money. People who own it say that once you get so far in game it gets pay to win/pay to progress on he crates like star wars has but fixed. The rates are low for the crates and expensive .
