VGA Trailer Debut: Epic Games’ ‘Fortnite’

You will build forts in Fortnite.

At least that’s what it looks like in the latest game from the Gears of War developer who appears to be looking to do something beyond brawny dudes shooting each other after spending a good chunk of the last decade with Dom and Marcus.

But what is Fortnite? My best guess is that it’s an elaboration on the latest version of Gears’ Horde Mode where you face waves and waves of enemies. In Gears 3, you were given cash you could use to fortify your location, buy weapons, and then blast the Locust to hell. Are they going for something similar here with their nocturnal baddies laying siege to your fort after the sun goes down?

Currently, there are no platform or release date details for Fortnite, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
