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.

    As many people know there is fortnite battle royale,
    Most people do not know about fortnite save the world. Well, yesterday epic released a statement saying that they are slowing development on stw, this is strange because back in 2011 the game was birthed from stw, and now they are killing it. The community will not stand for this nonsense!

I used to play this with my friends after school and it was all fine at the beginning, nobody had skill, we didn't know what we was doing, so it was fun! no try hards, everything was fun.
    Starting 2018 the game suddenly changed and became a warzone of tryhards trying to become like ninja and Tfue. Now I can't even stop playing for 1 month and come back that I will die in less than 2 min because everyone is so addicted to this game that it is impossible to be fun anymore.

Even for a cashgrab game, Fortnite's system is excessive. First, you buy the game. Then, to unlock different heroes, you have to buy loot crates that might have the hero (but probably just contain junk). And it isn't just heroes: all progress is locked behind the loot crates.

    This is the kind of game that makes me wonder if I should give up gaming as a hobby.
