Fortnite from Epic Games is Running Unreal Engine 4, PC Exclusive
Epic Games’ Fortnite made a surprising splash when it was unveiled at Spike TV’s Video Game Awards last December, but not many details were offered. Thanks to the Fornite panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, however, we have a load of new details (and screenshots) to share with you.
First of all, the game is PC-exclusive. Second, the game is the first title in Epic’s library (and the world) to be running on Unreal Engine 4, designed entirely by Epic themselves.
The game itself is a post-apocalyptic class-based structure building survival action game that pits you and your friends against hordes of enemies that attack by moonlight. During the day, conversely, players are given the opportunity to scavenge for supplies across the world, build and fortify their bases, set traps, and make sure their team has the resources needed.
“Building is really the core of the game,” Fortnite Producer Tanya Jessen said. “Everything you find allows you to build and improve your structure.”
When the sun goes down though, that’s when the real action begins – just pray you gathered enough material to get you through the night.
Check out some of the screenshots above to get yourself acquainted with Fortnite.
