|Engine||Unreal Engine 4|
Fortnite is an upcoming game from Epic Games. It is centred on a scavenge by day and fight by night scenario. It will be the first game from Epic to utilize Epic's Unreal Engine 4 and is currently set for release in 2013.
Fortnite is described as a co-op sandbox survival game and is about exploration, scavenging gear, building fortified structures, and fighting waves of encroaching monsters. Players will work together to scavenge items they can use for building by day to build their fort, and by night defend it from the monsters. Building will be a core mechanic in the game, and there will be "a lot of loot" buried within. Players can build and edit each wall of their fort with a 3x3 grid, laydown stairs, roofs, and windows, sculpting them to suit a particular need.
Fortnite was first revealed by Epic on December 10, 2011.
