Feb

2019

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 take on other players. The game can be played on Windows, macOS, the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Switch and smartphones. For more information, we refer to our brief review . The developers have released Fortnite 7.40 with the following announcement:
