The world of Fortnite is expansive and uses a hybrid of procedural generation with sculpted “puzzle pieces” to create interesting play spaces to explore. Almost anything can be harvested for loot and materials, and used for for crafting. Build the equipment you need, when you need it. Knowing when to spend your hard-earned resources is part of the strategy of mastering the world of Fortnite.

Players collect hero cards drawn from a pool of four core classes:

  • Outlanders: Explorer class
  • Soldiers: Ranged weapon masters
  • Ninjas: Melee and mobility experts
  • Constructors: Masters of buffing forts

These classes gives players certain edges in the fight to retake the world from the monsters. A well-balanced team can nearly always save the day, but mix-and-match different specialties to find all new effective combinations. Combat is fast and chaotic in Fortnite, with a diverse groups of monsters, trying to overwhelm you with hordes of Husks, or even flinging themselves onto the roof of your fortress in an attempt to burrow from above. You’ll have to utilize all the tools in your toolbox to be successful at the top end of gameplay in Fortnite.

Fortnite is expected to release next year.
