Fortnite is becoming one of the biggest successes of the video game , after only a few months of existence. To explain this, we must understand the concept of this innovative and ultra addictive game that brings together more millions of players on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Initially, Fortnite is a game that mixes genres: survival, shooter, craft (as in Minecraft) and has a single game mode in which you have to defend yourself against hordes of zombies, creating shelters thanks to the elements of decors that you can collect ( crafter ) and by pulling on the monsters with the weapons with provisions. Fun, well done, it’s a game mode that only serves to make the hand! Because what interests the players on Fornite is its Battle Royale mode!
This form of play has been democratized by the game Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds , which has since been surpassed by the dazzling success of Fortnite. Simply put, the Fornite Battle Royale sends you to an island with 100 other players and your goal is unique: to be the last living warrior!
This is a giant confrontation between online players from around the world that takes place in a cartoony environment, which will not please everyone. Childish enough and less serious than its competitor PUBG, the graphics of the game are reminiscent of the cell-shading that had its heyday on PS2! We like or we do not like, but that does not prevent us from playing.
You start on a flying bus (!) From which you parachute, to land on a giant island, composed of abandoned buildings, cities and nature. Very soon, you will have to equip yourself to survive. For that, it is necessary to look for the weapons which are in chests or in buildings, and it is necessary to make quickly because there is not one for everybody. The pickaxe with which you start will not be of much help in a clinch.
On the other hand, this pickaxe serves you to collect the elements of the decoration , which are all destructible. Wood, metal, bricks, etc. The more you collect, the more you can create strong structures and this brings us to the strategic aspect of the game: build allows you to make a solid shelter, a defensive tower, or even a real fortress . While playing, the creativity of some astonishes!
The other aspect of the game that must be considered is the storms. As time goes on, the map shrinks as a storm moves toward you. This forces the players, little by little, to find themselves in a very restricted area. If you are still alive when the storm reaches its peak, you will feel a real stress because the slightest misstep will cost you life! The last living warriors are regulars and you may well be cut down sneakily in your first games!
But the addiction that provokes Fornite is crazy. At each death, we want to do better and we restart a part . The margin of progress is immense and little by little, we understand the mechanisms of the game. We create new defensive strategies, we aim better, we survive longer.
So yes, Fortnite is quite permissive in his sighting system and players accustomed to the specific FPS will piss off by being foolishly killed. In addition, it is sometimes annoying to lose face noob hidden in a bush since the beginning of the game … Finally, we can note that there for the moment only one card on which to play. It seems ridiculous but the diversity of it and the game system make each part different, and we do not get tired anytime soon.
