Fortnite, by Epic Games, is a multiplayer game where players band together to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left destitute. While playing online, players will be able to build or find forts, weapons, and traps and protect their towns from the onslaught of monsters from "The Storm".
Because of it's building mechanics and it's apocalyptic violence, Fortnite has been described as "Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead" by Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney. In multiplayer, players can either work together to scavenge items and defend their fort or play against other players and try to destroy them.
A specific release date has not yet been cited, but players are assured it will be in 2016.
