Fortnite's early access sales are impressive”

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Fortnite invites players to team up as they build massive forts and battle against hordes of monsters, all while crafting and looting within giant worlds where no two games are ever the same. This trailer highlights the gameplay elements from Fortnite specifically and showcases some of the combat and building mechanics that the game boasts. Fast forward to today, and the hybrid third-person shooter / survival, tower defense game is finally launching, even if it is only going into Early Access.

Epic Games showed off Fortnite for the first time way back in 2011. After re-emerging, it was announced that the final release of Fortnite would follow the free-to-play business model.

The game has been available for nearly a week now for those who preordered their early access passes, however reports show that unreliable server connection has hindered these players ability to play online. There are a total of four editions available for purchase on Epic Games' official website: the $39.99 Standard Edition, $59.99 Deluxe Edition, $89.99 Super Deluxe Edition, and the $149.99 Limited Edition.
