Fortnite to be Debut Game for Unreal Engine 4
Epic Games' survival co-op is coming to PC next year.
Epic Games announced recently that Fortnite will be the first game to use Unreal Engine 4. The statement was made at San Diego Comic Con 2012.
The game, currently under development exclusively for PC, is a co-op survival taking place in a sandbox environment. Fortnite tasks players with foraging for food and other resources, as well as building a shelter. And, oh yeah, beware of zombies.
How one chooses to construct their outpost is up to them and a variety of different materials will be available for use, each one bringing with it a layer of complexity. How a player manages to construct their outpost will make a difference on how strong it will be, especially when the zombies come for it at night.
While a PC release is expected next year, Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski is keeping the door open for other releases, tweeting, "Fortnite is PC primary and first, but we wouldn't rule out the possibility of other platforms later."
