With the growing PUBG craze, Fornite developer Epic Games realized that they needed to jump into the market as soon as possible – which I’m not complaining about one bit, because the battle-royale mode of the base building survival title will be completely free to play from September 26th onwards. Exciting right? What’s more, the developers announced that the mode will sell items at some stage, but they will be purely cosmetic.
This means that the Fortnite will be the first Battle Royale experience to grace the likes of Xbox One, PS4 and Mac players. Seems like Brendan Greene has a little bit of healthy competition.
What’s Fortnite Battle Royale?
It’s a 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite that will be free for everybody on Sept. 26. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.
Squads are Coming!
On September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will introduce squads. Also, we’re working to improve the feel of combat, controls, weapons, movement and inventory.
I have to applaud Epic Games on this marketing strategy, hopefully, this will get some players to purchase the title to experience the developer’s original idea.
Fornite is out now for PS4, PC and Xbox One.
