took the stage at the Spike VGAs
last night to reveal Epic Games
‘ new IP Fortnite
, as well as a teaser trailer.*From what intel I could gather from various gaming websites, Fortnite sounds very familiar.
“We’ve had amazing success with games like Gears Of War
and Infinity Blade
this year, but we decided it was time to switch things up a little bit and do something different and fun,” said Bleszniski at the awards ceremony.
“Imagine a world where you explore, you scavenge, you build and ultimately you survive.”
then, Cliffy? It’s certainly a departure from Epic’s standard fare of Gears of War and the Unreal
games. Fortnite has a more cartoony look to it, but the concept seems interesting.
During the game’s day phase you explore the overworld and build your fort. At night the game becomes a thirdperson shooter in which you defend off hordes of the undead. The trailer also has Nolan North in it.
No platforms, publisher or release date were announced, but hopefully this sells well enough for Epic Games to consider remaking Jazz Jackrabbit
