Fortnite is a free-to-play survival simulator with an open world. Game’s main goal is world’s exploration, resources’ extraction and killing of aggressive zombies. Here you have the possibility to cooperate with your mates or stay alone. The player can download Fortnite on PS4, PC, Mac and Xbox One.
Fortnite Concept 4/5
Fortnite is a cooperative sandbox in which players have to stay alive after a great catastrophe. During in-game daytime they are busy, looking for various things, that would be useful in forts’ building. At night the characters are forced to fight against hostile zombies who are also known as husks.
Building of defensive towers is the main mechanics in this game, and the player can find a lot of construction materials. Nearly everything may be created: high ladders, firm walls, windows, doors, etc. Anyway, personages may not only construct, but also destroy to get more resources.
There are presented 4 main classes of the characters, and each of them has special features. For example, constructors build everything faster and cheaper, and ninjas are perfect in close-in engagement.
Locations and loot are randomly generated every time. In the beginning, every player gets some gun and arm blanche. You can buy various things that can change the appearance of the character, but they do not influence on the characteristics. Skills can be developed only in the game process.
Visual Effects 4/5
Every location can be called a small masterpiece that catches your attention. Very bright colors and unusual shapes create an impression that you are inside of Van Gogh’s or Dali’s painting. We may say in this Fortnite review that at the same time everything looks rather realistic because of small details’ ability. The semiabstract image is a felicitous Fortnite’s feature that makes monsters’ annihilation more pleasant and even stylish.
Audio Effects 5/5
Audio effects and tracks in Fortnite fascinate by their multiplicity. A feature to produce any melody by stepping on certain blocks makes the game unique. You may build a special path and play your own or popular track. The energetic soundtrack makes fights with beasts even more vibrant. All the sounds are professionally recorded that’s why audio here is on a higher level.
You will have to actively use all the buttons on gamepad, playing Fortnite on PS4. Also, the player can choose the sensitivity of the buttons during the process of building in the options menu. The character can’t shoot while leaving the crouching position. The action’s animation should end, and only then there will appear the possibility to attack. Anyway, crouching doesn’t break down emotes but can be interrupted by emoting. Developers always try to fix some bugs and make updates for controls.
Replay Value 5/5
Replay Value in Fortnite is top-notch. There are too many weapons and materials that the player desires to try. Ability to create a brand new building with one-of-a-kind design makes you sit in front of your screen for long hours. Sometimes you can forget that you need not only to construct but also fight against husks. Anyway, battles with these bloody beasts don’t make you bored because you need to think quickly, shoot, slaughter and defend.
We suppose that nearly everyone will find something interesting in this game. If you like creating something, you’ll be fond of projecting your forts. If you like putting away monsters, you’ll catch fancy in finding weapons and using them during the night. You may cooperate with friends and show them who is the leader there. With downloading Fortnite it’s possible to get trapped in the process for many days.
For certain, this sandbox based on constructing and killing will draw your attention. Help the world to fight against the darkness!
