Developer Epic Games opened their popular 100-player free-for-all game for limited testing on mobile devices just under a month ago, but admission was limited to folks who registered on a special site or received invite codes. Both games are in the top 10 downloaded games in Google Play and/or the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad.
Building materials are incredibly important in "Fortnite Battle Royale", and that is why many players won't use vending machines.
As always, Epic Games has not missed the opportunity to publish a Launch Trailer which looks quite fun. The game has already surpassed PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in revenue, raking in more than US$126 million (~RM487 million) back in February. For many, this is a very big deal considering Fortnite is only a year old game whereas GTA 5 is one of the best selling games of all times. I did, however, play the free game on the PlayStation 4 and I wasn't very impressed.
The mobile version is a faithful port of the mode playable on Mac, PC, and consoles, but doesn't include the separate "Save the World" paid player-vs-environment campaign.
The good news is there is cross play, so iPhone gamers can play with and against PS4 and Xbox players, too. We've seen items like the Cozy Campfire come into the game and go straight into the player's inventory to be placed down everywhere. They then have to scavenge for guns and resources and try to become the last player or team standing (you can play alone, in a duo, or with in a squad of four).
Fortnite isn't the only game getting a lot of buzz!
