As you may have gathered from our previous Fortnite article. This new title from Epic Games and People Can Fly is about surviving against the monster hordes and building yourself a badass base whilst you do it. So what can you do exactly in Fortnite? This handy list of things will inform you of the ins and outs of the game and what it has in store for players.
Whilst surviving the impending storms that taunt the world of Fortnite, it is up to players to explore the world, gather materials and ready themselves for the oncoming hordes. Fortnite has a variety of procedurally generated locations for players to explore including cities, towns and woodland areas, just to name a few. Each building can be searched for loot and crafting materials and it is also up to you to save various survivors you find on your way and bring them back to your home base.
The mother base of all operations is your fort. This is the place where you will bring back survivors and the building in which you will call home. You are able to construct your base exactly to your liking. If you want your fort to look like an oversized Corgi then go ahead.
Your fort can be decked out with traps to help defeat the on coming monster hordes. you can also install a variety of gadgets such as jump pads to help you navigate your construction with ease.
Every now and then a horde of monsters in varying sizes and forms will attack your base, so make sure it is well defended. Use stronger materials such as stone and metal in order to defend your base, you will also be able to construct defences mid battle in order to keep your beloved construction safe.
Crafting isn’t just centred around fort construction. Players will be able to craft weapons, traps and a variety of gadgets in order to defeat the hordes. Melee weapons and heavy artillery can be constructed as well as navigation gadgets in order to help you transverse the landscapes with ease.
