Fortnite: Save the World
Fortnite: Save the World is a co-op sandbox survival game developed by Epic Games and People
Can Fly and published by Epic Games. The game was released as a paid-for early access title for
Microsoft Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on July 25, 2017, with a full free-to-play
release expected in 2018. The retail versions of the game were published by Gearbox Publishing,
while online distribution of the PC versions is handled by Epic’s launcher.
Fortnite is set in contemporary Earth, where the sudden appearance of a worldwide storm causes
98% of the world’s population to disappear, and zombie-like creatures rise to attack the remainder.
Fortnite has up to four players cooperating on various missions on randomly-generated maps to
collect resources, build fortifications around defensive objectives that are meant to help fight the
storm and protect survivors, and construct weapons and traps to engage in combat with waves of
these creatures that attempt to destroy the objectives. Players gain rewards through these missions
to improve their hero characters, support teams, and arsenal of weapon and trap schematics to be
able to take on more difficult missions.
