Epic: Minecraft inspired new IP Fortnite

0

Those that caught The 2011 Spike VGA show this weekend saw the debut trailer for Epic Games' Fortnite. This game has players running around during the day to to build forts to defend from zombie attacks at night. It uses the Unreal Engine, but looks nothing like what has come out of this studio lately.

Since its debut, lead designer Lee Perry has revealed a few more details via Twitter. He says that "Minecraft was an inspiration for sure."

Fortnite invites freeform construction, Perry says. But unlike Minecraft, where you can build anything you want, this game will focus on creating buildings. 

One of his latest tweets says that they still have nothing to tell us on the platform and timeframe fronts. It's funny that most of what we know about this game has come from Twitter!
