Another epic battle royale game

Fortnite is a free-to-play action game. At its core, this game is a battle royale experience, where players venture into a vast map, either solo or in teams, alongside a staggering 99 other players. Upon landing, the objective becomes a frantic race to gather numerous weapons and items while progressing toward the map's central area.

Fortnite has achieved worldwide acclaim, captivating players of various nationalities and age groups with its vibrant and visually stunning graphics and diverse collaborations. It has much more content than other battle royale games, such as PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.

Is Fortnite free?

Fortnite is free to download on various platforms and systems, including Microsoft PC, Windows, Playstation, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, as well as mobile devices like Android and iOS.

Fortnite has three game modes: 

  • Save the World: A premium game mode where teams of up to four players fight off zombie-like creatures and complete various missions.
  • Battle Royale: A free-to-play battle royale game in which up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing.
  • Creative Mode: A free sandbox experience where players can create their worlds, platformer challenges, and battle arenas.

You can play this game through the Epic Games launcher. With your account and the launcher, you'll have access to all the games available from Epic Games. You can also play it through the Xbox Game Pass Launcher, which is necessary for enjoying the Xbox Cloud Gaming Fortnite features. This also means that Fortnite is a cross-platform game.

While the Save the World and Creative modes have been successful, Fortnite Battle Royale, in particular, has become a cultural phenomenon. It currently has upwards of 350 million players worldwide. It is the most popular game mode and has become synonymous with Fortnite, compelling millions to purchase the Battle Pass regularly.

Is Fortnite good for kids?

Due to the lack of violence in this mode, the game is excellent for kids as it helps express their creative side. Even in normal matches, though, there’s no excessive gore or violence.

Is Fortnite a battle royale?

Fortnite’s most popular game version is Battle Royale, a colorful third-person action shooter that pits you against up to 99 other players on an ever-shrinking map. You must use your combat skills to be the last player standing.

In this mode, you can get going immediately with your battle, free of charge. Various paid-for packages, however, can enhance your enjoyment of the game, including giving you access to more cosmetic items for your character from the item shop.

Battle Royale is divided into seasons that last for a finite period. Each season introduces a new theme, along with a new chapter in the game's storyline. They also bring new content, including exclusive skins — essentially the outfit your player character wears and new gameplay elements.

Sophisticated and unique gameplay

The concept of the Battle Royale is similar to other games in the genre. Up to 100 players skydive onto an island and hunt for equipment to defend themselves from other players. Supply drops will generate in unanticipated locations, providing random weapons and items.

You can fight alone or in a squad of two to four players. As the battle develops, the playable area within the island gradually gets smaller, forcing surviving players into tighter spaces and increasing player encounters. This adds an urgent, exciting atmosphere to the combat. You just can't avoid fighting.

What sets this game apart from similar games is its construction elements, which let players build walls, obstacles, and other structures from almost anything. You can even take cover from incoming fire or gain a strategic view advantage. Finally, players can hide in haystacks and dumpsters, jumping out for sneak attacks or quick evasion.

Ranked system

All players are welcome to participate in the Ranked game, although newcomers must complete a quest of outlasting 500 opponents before they can gain access to join the gameplay. The Rank system will consist of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Elite, Champion, and Unreal tiers. The tiers of Bronze through Diamond will comprise three divisions each, while Elite, Champion, and Unreal each have a single prestigious division.

Unreal is the highest rank, and once players attain this prestigious rank during a Ranked season, they will no longer be susceptible to rank downgrades. Unreal players will also join a distinct Unreal ranking system, which includes an exclusive Unreal leaderboard dedicated to showcasing their achievements.

Anime skins

Fortnite boasts a captivating collection of anime skins made possible through exciting collaborations with popular franchises such as Dragon Ball Z, Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, and Naruto. These crossover events bring forth a diverse range of appealing anime-inspired cosmetics that allow players to embody their favorite characters from these series. The distinct art style of the anime series, combined with the visual aesthetic of this game, creates a striking contrast that allows anime skins to stand out amidst a vast array of other cosmetics effortlessly.

With multiple anime skins to choose from, here are some notable examples of the best anime-inspired skins available in the game — Itachi, Son Goku, Nezumi, Naruto, Erisa, Eren, Kakashi, Ochaco Uraraka, Beerus, All Might, and Golden Gear Midas. These skins beautifully capture the essence of these anime characters, adding an extra layer of excitement and personalization to the game’s experience.

What to expect from the v25.11 update?

In a bid to keep seasoned and newbie players engaged and give them the best experience, Fortnite has rolled out its latest version update across platforms. Version 25.11 offers the Explosive Repeater Rifle and introduces new reality augments for more realistic shooting. The weapon is a real badass that you don’t want to miss. It shoots rounds and rounds of projectiles that explode once they hit something.

This means you don’t even need to aim at your targets. All you have to do is shoot anywhere near them and wait for them to get injured from the explosions. Unfortunately, the once beloved Heavy Sniper Rifle has to be vaulted to give way for the Explosive Repeater Rifle. Reality augments are set in place to accommodate the new rifle, which uses heavy ammo.

Headshot damage is increased for ammunition-intensive weapons, and acquiring more ammunition is made easy when you open containers.

Exciting Fortnite x The Witcher crossover

Fans of The Witcher will definitely toss their coins because of the thrilling new additions to the Fortnite cosmetics store — Ciri and Yennefer of Vengerberg. No longer does Geralt of Rivia have to be alone, as these two fiery ladies will join him in the battle royale. Besides the skins themselves, the bundles will also include Ciri and Yennefer’s respective items. For Ciri, she will come with a bird glider and two swords, while Yennefer’s bundle will feature a magnifying glass that can also be used as a pickaxe, a Back Bling raven skull, and an emote with a raven. V-Bucks are necessary to purchase these bundles, which can be bought individually or as a whole set.

Annual summer event

Every year, Fortnite players beat the heat with a special summer event where new or reinstated items, quests, map changes, and rewards are up for grabs just for the season. The ongoing event aims to spice up the summer break for 14 straight days, usually starting in the first week of July. This year’s event is called Fortnite Summer Escape, featuring mostly water-based quests and items. It offers three new game types, which include The Quench Quest, Lagoon Party Time, and Make an Entrance. The 14-day seasonal event also comes with new outfits and emotes worth a shot.

Fortnite gets a futuristic update

Fortnite brings an exciting crossover with the beloved animated series Futurama to Chapter 4 Season 3's Island. This collaboration event introduces a range of cosmetic items and content to the game, delighting fans of both the battle royale and the series. The hint of this epic crossover came weeks ago when Epic Games added the Share The Wealth emote, a clever nod to the iconic 'Take My Money' meme from Futurama.

Now, players can dive into the futuristic world of animated series with new skins featuring adored characters like Philip J. Fry, Leela, and Bender, available in the Item Shop. The collaboration extends further with additional cosmetic items tied to Futurama, including the Zoidberg Scuttle emote, the Unbendable Girder pickaxe, and the Planet Express Ship glider.

As part of the exciting crossover, players can also get their hands on a brand-new weapon: Bender's Shiny Metal Raygun. This mythical weapon can be found as floor loot or purchased from the Bender NPC on the island using Gold Bars. The raygun shoots infinite plasma rays, but players must be cautious of its cooldown due to overheating.

Join the phenomenon

Simply put, Fortnite is a worldwide cultural phenomenon, beloved by its fans. Ultimately, Fortnite is an online battle game that some players will enjoy, while others won't understand all the fuss.

It takes dedication to get good at this game. New players might find the steep learning curve, a mind-boggling array of challenges, and ever-developing features tough to handle. Seasoned battle game players, however, will likely thrive in this fast-paced world where only the best survive. There's only one way to know which camp you'll fall under — download Fortnite and put your skills to the test.
