Fortnite: How To Increase Homebase Power Level | Tips Guide

Fortnite, developed by Epic Games along with People Can Fly, puts players together as they fight off hordes of zombies. Currently, the video game is available through Early Access though it’s expected to launch as a completely free-to-play video game title sometime in 2018.

Overall, players will work together as they scavenge items to build forts along with traps. Each night, a horde of zombies and monsters will attack leaving players to hope that their traps and fort will survive while also taking out any immediate threat.

Essentially, there’s plenty of teamwork and strategy that goes into the title while gameplay is more tuned into a lighthearted arcade style survival game. Tim Sweeney, the founder of Epic Games, described the title as Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead, which really does capture the overall feel of the game.

If you’re just starting out in the video game title or need a quick refresher then check out our featured guides on the Fortnite video game title down below. Likewise, in this particular guide, we’ll showcase how to increase your Homebase Power.
