Fortnight is a third-person shooter, cooperative survival, tower defense, action/adventure, Minecraft-like constructor, RPG, collectible card game ... There is so much to do here that it seems - this game is absorbing a player without a trace.
The basic mechanics of Fortnite is cooperative survival on large maps with the ability to build defensive structures. You, along with three comrades or random comrades-in-arms performing the same mission, land in a certain area of the game world, randomly generated. It can be a forest, suburb, urban area. Your task is to find in ten minutes the erection point for the installation to disperse the poisonous clouds that turn people into zombies, or the landing point of the research probe, or the survivor's van, etc. At the same time, you will have to collect resources by searching houses and basements, destroying walls, trees and stones.
The game is made in a slightly cartoonish manner. At the same time, Fortnite looks very cute and organic: given the general playful mood of the game itself and many missions, this style is very appropriate here. Naturally, given that this is Epic Games, the game is made on Unreal Engine 4, which is remarkably optimized here. Everything just flies, no slowdowns, glitches and freezes. On the other hand, there are no super-sophisticated realistic special effects here either. This game is not about realism, but about fun.
Playing this game, you will keep on promising: Another mission, and sleep! I will pump the hero a little more, and I will come off! A couple more skills, and it's time to get ready for work! Do not comfort yourself with hope, it is very difficult to come off, especially at first. The main thing is not to get too carried away and not to forget to return to the point of completing the main task, which sometimes really happens.
Anything that is not bolted, that is, is not the earth, can be destroyed, searched, and disassembled into components that will be used to build a fort and make weapons and traps. The construction part is simple and intuitive, you will master it in just five minutes, and then you will be able to build and repair walls literally during the battle.
Fortnite is surprisingly addictive and very voluminous. Like a good MMORPG, it may keep you busy for the next few years. A bit of Left 4 Dead, a bit of Minecraft, a bit of Tower Defense, a bit of Survival Simulator. A unique game of a unique genre.
Highly Rated For:
- an incredible mix of many genres;
- a combination of Left 4 Dead, Minecraft and Tower Defense gameplay;
- the richest meta-game;
- addictive collectible mechanics;
- nice graphic style;
