About the game

Fortnite, developed by Epic Games, is a free-to-play, multi-platform battle royale shooter that has taken the gaming world by storm. In its most popular mode, 100 players parachute onto an ever-shrinking map, scavenging weapons and resources while battling to be the last person standing. Fortnite's unique building mechanics add a strategic layer to gameplay, as players construct defensive structures and traverse the terrain creatively. The game's vibrant, cartoony visuals and frequent updates, including new seasons, game modes, and cosmetic items, keep the experience fresh and engaging. Fortnite's accessible gameplay, social features, and widespread popularity make it an exciting and dynamic entry in the battle royale genre.

Reasons to play

  • Creative gameplay: Fortnite's building mechanics add a unique twist to the traditional battle royale genre, allowing players to create structures and fortifications to protect themselves and gain advantages over opponents.
  • Social aspect: Fortnite is a highly social game, with options for cross-platform play and communication. Players can team up with friends or join random squads to compete together, adding to the fun and excitement of the game.
  • Constant updates: Fortnite is updated regularly with new content, including limited-time game modes, skins, weapons, and map changes. This keeps the game fresh and exciting, with always something new to discover.

Reasons not to play

  • Time commitment: Fortnite can be a time-consuming game, with matches often lasting 20-30 minutes or longer. This can make it difficult to fit into a busy schedule or play casually.
  • Competitive nature: Fortnite is a highly competitive game, with skilled players often dominating matches. This can make it frustrating for less experienced players or those looking for a more casual experience.
  • In-game purchases: While Fortnite is a free-to-play game, it heavily relies on in-game purchases for revenue. While these purchases are optional, some players may find the constant advertising and pressure to spend money to be off-putting.
