Software update: Fortnite 4.5.0




Fortnite is a ‘co-op survival sandbox game’ from development studio Epic Games. The graphic style is cartoony and is reminiscent of the style of games such as Team Fortress. That automatically puts the emphasis on gaming fun. There are two modes in the game: the story-driven mode ‘Save the World’, for which you still have to pay, and the free ‘Battle Royale’ mode, in which you compete against other players. The game can be played on Windows, macOS, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. For more information we refer to our concise review . The developers have released Fortnite 4.5.0 with the following announcement:
