At Comic-Con Thursday, Epic Games showed off 'Fortnite' for the first time. The game will be a co-op survival experience where players work together to build and defend their fortress from the forces of darkness. This will also be the very first game to be using Epic's Unreal Engine 4. The game is only being developed for the PC right now with a release date sometime in 2013.
It is a very smart idea for a game, at the core of any good survival horror story is preparation for the coming horde of undead, demons, mutants, robots, aliens, vampires, werewolves or circa-1980 Russian cliches.
Judging by these screen shots the supernatural enemies in this game have a lot of variety and not your standard creature designs. The game sounds like a merging of "Left 4 Dead" and "Minecraft," with the that combination how could things go wrong?
