Fortnite: First Game On The Unreal Engine 4

Cliff Bleszinski from Epic Games made an announcement today at Comic-Con about their next game. Fortnite is going to be the first game that’s built using the new Unreal Engine 4 and to top it all off it’s going to be a PC exclusive. The game is set for a 2013 release and according to Cliff, will knock your socks off.

Next-gen’s here. It’s been here. It’s a high-end PC

Fortnite features co-op and it’s basically a builder by day and a shooter by night. You build your defenses with accumulated supplies while the sun shines in the sky. At nightfall it turns into a shooter and you have to defend your fort against the charging zombie horde.

I can’t really say much about the graphics except that the game looks achingly pretty, almost like a pixar animated movie.

The official website for the game is live and you can check that out here.
