About FORTNITE

Fortnite is an online shooter-survival video game developed by Epic Games in 2017. The game was developed keeping in mind Mine Craft and Terraria highlighting the construction based genre and merging with shooting genre. Fortnite exists in three distinctive modes, which were developed over-time from 2017-2018. Fortnite: Save The World was the original game developed and released in 2017 with early access to Steam on PC while the other two, Fortnite: Battle Royale and Fortnite Creative were introduced later on. Epic Games envisioned changing their dark theme to this cartoonish theme to introduce the Games as a Service (GaaS) model. Save The World and Creative have been released on Windows PC, MacOS PC, Xbox One and PS4. Subsequently, the Battle Royale version has been released on Android, iOS and Nintendo Switch along with the above mentioned platforms.

  • Fortnite: Save The World – This game was the first one to be developed under the Fortnite Its development faced many obstacles during the process, with shifting from Unreal Engine 3 to Unreal Engine 4 contributing and the integration of the new concepts/models into their gaming industry.
    Save The World is player-versus-environment game with up to four players co-operating to achieve one common objective of “Victory”. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic era where a storm wiped out 98% of the population of earth, causing the remaining survivors to be attacked by the virus infected Zombie “Husks”. The players become the Home Base Shelter leaders and are tasked to protect the remaining survivors against the Zombie’s and the environment by collecting, building, defending. The players collect resources termed as Loot, which helps them to construct things and gain the in-game rewards.
  • Fortnite: Battle Royale – After the success of PUBG worldwide, selling 5 million copies in just first three months and being the front runner for the Battle Royale genre. The developers at Epic Games thought that they can also try and make a Battle Royale version of Fortnite, which they successfully created in just two months. The game was released in September’ 2017 and quickly gained 10 million users inside two weeks.
  • Fortnite Creative – The latest addition in the modes of Fortnite is the Fortnite Creative which was released on 6th December’ 2018. In this creative mode, each player has access to his/her own private islands on which they can create and construct objects to their own desire. The players can invite their friends to their islands, show them their creation and engage in various competitive games. Creative is a sandbox game where they can also create in-game objects like battle arenas, challenges, courses etc. The developer Epic Games then reviews some of the best creations by the players and puts them in the map of Battle Royale, “The Block”.

 

The first two Fortnite game modes, Save The World and Battle Royale have been the most successful for Epic Games. But Fortnite Battle Royale has been the most grossing and selling game for the developers in just a year, grossing in millions per month.

    There are two modes of Fortnite, Save The World and Battle Royale, which have almost similar gameplay but different concepts. The basic premise is the same with each version: You lead a group of defenders against groups of oncoming Husks (Zombies). It's a similar concept to what you might see in some parts of Metal Gear Survive, though I imagine it improves upon the concept. The versions differ in what characters and gear you have at your disposal. It is quite familiar to the game PUBG if you have played it. The concept is to Survive till the last or be the last man standing to win. There are three game mods in the Battle Royale,
    - Solo – 1v1
    - Duo – 2v2
    - Squad – 4v4
    The pre-match engaging area is situated on an island just off the coast of the main map itself. It is entertaining to go at the side and watch the entire playable area in a 360 degree view. At most, you get a couple of minutes to explore the island, test out some mechanics, or just finalize your strategy before the battle begins. There's no bridge that connects to the main map, so naturally, you fly in aboard the Battle Bus, a bright blue school bus, complete with a gigantic balloon and blaring sound system. Once you find a good drop spot and preferably one far away from other players, you jump out and begin a fast skydive descent. The game's dynamics let you cover a significant distance in any direction, so don't worry if you accidentally drop out over the area you did not plan to be glide into. You deploy your glider at the point when you are close to drop area to slow your descent and soften your landing. It deploys automatically once you get close enough to the ground. After landing, you take a few moments to gather yourself and scavenger for resources, but the peace won't last long. Shortly thereafter, a storm begins to form and you must start running in the direction of its center if you want to survive. However, you also need to watch out for other players, you have to slay them if you can or simply avoid getting seen by them. If you fall within an enemy's sight or behind the pace of the storm, you will die pretty quickly.
    In duo or squad modes, there is a transitional stage between life and death, in which your character gets knocked out to the ground. In this state, you can only move around by crawling and cannot use any weapons or health packs. To recover your mobility, a teammate must revive you. But the enemy players and the storm itself can finish you off easily once you are knocked out. In any case, once you are killed, the camera switches to the viewpoint of your killer or a teammate if that teammate is alive.
    One of Fortnite’s differentiating and successful feature is its construction capability. To craft anything, you first need to search for resources. Practically everything you see on the map is destructible; buildings, household appliances, rocks, trees, and vehicles are just a few examples of what you can destroy with your axe. It's very satisfying to just chop down everything in sight without having to worry about running out of energy or picking up scattered material.
    At the end of the match if you or your team is the last one alive, you win and you get the famous tagline “Victory Royale”.

    Fortnite's bright, fun graphics and innovative construction mechanics are highly welcome in a genre that seems to have increasingly turned down dark and suspenseful paths. It's not a perfect game: The shooting mechanism needs improvement and it could benefit from scaling back micro transactions. It's also a highly derivative of PUBG, which weakens its charms. Still, any fans of the Battle Royale genre should give it a fair chance, especially since it is a free-to-play title. Plus at the end of a match if you win the tagline, Victory Royale, is quite appealing.
