Fortnite Still Exists, And It’s Looking For Testers
Epic Games came out onto a stage in 2011 to announce the first game that would release using Unreal Engine 4. The highly stylised Fortnite looked like a mix between Minecraft and co-operative Call of Duty Zombies, but since then we’ve heard nearly nothing about the title.
Yesterday Epic Games finally revealed Fortnite again, as a PC-exclusive free-to-play third-person shooter.

Fortnite is still the game Epic teased all those years back. A cartoonish title that has a heavy emphasis on resource scavenging and base building, coupled with Diablo styled looting mechanics and co-operative shooting mayhem. It’s the type of title you’d expect to adopt a free-to-play model, with thousands of opportunities to make money through cosmetic microtransactions.
Epic Games also announced that they’re looking for Alpha Testers for the title, with testing happening sometime later this year. By heading over to the game’s website and filling out a small survey, you could be testing out one of the first Unreal Engine 4 titles on the market.
We have yet to see the game in action, but with E3 just around the corner you can probably expect that to change really soon.
Has free-to-play just killed this game in your view?
