Fortnite

When this game first came out, I thought it was a blatant rip off of the game Players Unknown Battleground(PUBG). While it is the same concept(battle royal), it is not some cheap knock off. This game is free to download, and it has taken the world by storm. It has gotten extremely popular and the fan base is only growing.

Last night, I was watching a Twitch streamer that goes by Ninja, and I believe he broke the record for most viewers in a live stream. He was also joined by Drake and Travis Scott (the rappers). This game has blended in the gamer culture with pop culture now. 

Earlier this week, Epic Games(Fortnite's studio) announced that Fortnite was coming to iPhone and some people already are able to download it.

What do you guys think of the massive hype around this game?

Now that I have viewed Fornite, I can say that the game play is similar to Rules of Survival and PUBG but in a whole new level. You can build walls and use them as weapons?? I dont know how the game works i just viewed it on youtube and my friends used to say that it is harder to play than ROS or PUBG. If ROS and PUBG Mobile is harder to play in smartphones, what more is Fortnite? I cant imagine!!!

Haven't tried this one, but just watched this trailer and looks like a lot of fun.

 

I suggest you try it out! The battle royal mode doesn't cost a thing and the only things that cost money are the cosmetics and the PVE mode.

@JayRob2212 - So after watching the YouTube video I decided to try it out, really having fun in the PVE areas here on the weekends thanks a lot :)

I am glad you are enjoying it! I typically stick to the PvP mode, Battle Royal, but PvE is fun too. Let me know your thoughts once you have played the game for a bit, would like to get your opinion.

I like the PVP side as well, but really getting into the PVE side of things, finally starting to get challenging around level 15 or so.  

I purchased the top tier founders pack :) It came with 2 of the lower tier gaming packages.  I'm thinking I may add those in next months giveaways for the prizes...if any interest.

Yeah that would be an awesome giveaway, I'm sure there are a ton of other Fortnite players on this site. I know I would definitely be interested.

I am loving Fortnite at the moment. Love that users can choose to get the Fortnite Standard Edition as a prize for the April's Posting Contest, although I already have it so it's not great for me :D. I don't mind the Save the World mode, to be honest with you but I do prefer the Battle Royale mode. I am just loving playing it, which is not a huge surprise really since I have been waiting for a battle royale game for the PlayStation 4 for a long time and when I heard that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was only coming to the Xbox One, I was so disappointed.

Has anyone got the Battle Pass for Season 3? I'm currently halfway through it and looking forward to using the John Wick skin when I finally finish it.

I haven't figured out the Battle Passes yet or what they do, any insight? 

I've played PVP some, but really enjoying the progression in PVE.

The battle pass adds new challenges (example: 5 kills in retail row or dance in forbidden location) and each season has a separate theme with cosmetics to match the theme. This season's theme was space so astronaut suits were added amongst many more things. It cost 950 Vbucks aka about $10 but once you get on season's battle pass, it is possible to earn more Vbucks through the challenges, meaning you may possibly be able to buy next season's battle pass without paying money.

One of the biggest reasons why I am not playing Save the World that much is that I'm still way too confused to properly understand it. Most of what I have done is to just progress through the game and try to earn as much v-bucks as possible which I can then use for the Battle Royale portion of the game.

In terms of the Battle Passes, it's quite simple really. Every season, we get tiers, with this season going up to tier 100. But there are two sections, if you go to the game and check the Battle Pass of the section you will see. One of the section is grey and the other gold. As you rise through tiers, you will unlock items that are shown in these sections but you will only get the items in the gold section if you own the Battle Pass. For example, if you buy the Battle Pass and get to Tier 70, you will get the Voyager skin for your character but those that do not own the battle pass won't get it.
