Epic Games Reveals Fortnite First Look At Comic-Con

on July 12, 2012 7:42 PM

New details and a first look at the co-op sandbox survival game Fortnite were revealed at Epic Games’s SDCC panel. The first game to feature Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, Fortnite is being developed for PC and will release some time in 2013. In the game, players will explore, collect materials, and build fortresses by day; at night they will have to team up and fend off the forces of darkness. (Okay, sounds a bit familiar…)

Despite the immediate comparison one could possibly make to Minecraft, Fortnite aims to provide a fresh aesthetic to the concept, as well as making the scavenging and collection aspect of the game a quicker, dynamic experience. The game looks beautiful, and Epic always provides nice twists to tried-and-true gameplay. Look forward
