Fortnite debuted not too long: in 2017, but already needs no introduction. It is an iconic Battle Royale genre game, in which players have to:
- Pulverize each other with bullets.
- Blast each other into microscopic pieces with all sorts of explosives.
- Send each other to the Moon (and possibly Martian Demos) with rocket launchers etc. etc.
According to Epic — the studio behind this messy and quirky bloodbath-simulator — 78.3 people join Fortnite monthly, to blast the brains and guts out of everyone they see.
Now as any other Royale Battle game, Fortnite has a little catch. You, along with up to 100 other combatants land on a vast island, with numerous locations. In fact it's so big, that it even has different climatic zones: hot-burning desert, snowy mountains, forests, where you can practice guerilla and set up traps/ambushes and so on.
As the heroic battle continues and the numbers of opponents thin out, some sort of force field begins to shrink. Such a measure has been implemented not to let the surviving players, scattered around the map, turn the game into an agonizingly long quest of searching for each other.
Fortnite isn't only about shooty-bangy part of the Royale Battle. Despite its comedic and somewhat cartoonized aesthetics, it can be very serious in terms of strategizing and devising various tactics.
First of all, right after landing players can't procrastinate and must begin seeking for weaponry, ammo, loot chests and other stuff that may guarantee tactical superiority.
Second, by collecting resources, you can build structures that may be your guarantee for future triumph. For example, those who prefer sniping, can erect fortified watchtowers. And of course you can construct an improvised cover, to hide from whistling bullets or grenade fractures. Basically your architecting skills are limited only by your ability to dodge bullets and by the amount of resources you can collect.
Apart from the electrifying feel of a massive combat, in which you're supposed to survive at all costs, Fortnite has other intriguing and attractive nuances about its gameplay.
For example, nothing calls for a celebration like groovy dancing. And Fortnite allows you to employ dance emotes (both unlockable and purchasable) whenever you feel like expressing yourself through the body language. Sometimes the situation gets even more hilariously absurd, and a disco-ball from the 70's appears out of nowhere. But only if the boogie-woogie bomb as exploded.
And if you look at the weapon arsenal, you'll see such curious contraptions as:
- Clinger — a time bomb glued together with a plunger.
- Snowball launcher.
- Trash cannon crafted of some random junk.
- Stink bomb — glass container filled with an unknown yellowish substance.
iOS version of Fortnite contains almost all of the authentic features, that Fortnite has on the "big" platforms. Only it has only one mode so far — the classic Battle Royale mode.
Mobile players don't have to worry about clashing with the Pc/console players, since they have their own exclusive Mobile Server. But at the same time, cross-platform match is an option too, once players join the specific server.
All in all Fortnite is the reigning champion in the Battle Royale genre due to all the hectic fun it can provide, an enormous player community and the fact that it's free from the notorious pay-to-win factor.
