Fortnite Developer Talks About PvP/PvE Integration, eSports and More

By   /   Jul 17, 2014

The development on Epic Games’ Fortnite has been going on for quite a while now, and developers are well aware that fans are getting tired of this waiting, so to make the wait a little more bearable, some new information on the game has been revealed.

In a new interview, lead designer on the game, Darren Sugg talks about developer’s decision to merge PvP and PvE into one experience.

One of the things we wanted to do was find something that felt like it was uniquely Fortnite, and since the storms are part of the low-level DNA of what Fortnite is, we wanted those storms to be part of the gameplay.

So storms will roll into a PvP arena spawning lots of creatures and throw even the best strategy into complete disarray, or turn a win into a loss or vice versa, depending on how you’re using it.

He continued on to say that inclusion of these AI enemies will make experience more fun because victory will not be certain at point of time, as the waves of these enemies can turn the match’s tide in your favor at any given moment.

This kind of gameplay will allow players to find an opportunity to hurt their opponents, utilizing the damage that has been done by AI enemies.

In addition to that, Sugg mentioned that there is a huge possibility that Fortnite will become an eSports title of the future, due to its focus on team based gameplay.

He also explained that free-to-play system of the game will not feel like it is ripping people off, as there will be  balance among the things, which will put up for sale.

Fortnite is scheduled to arrive sometime in 2015, exclusively for PC.
