Epic Games’ Fortnite Early Access announced for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Fortnite launch

It took almost an eternity, but Epic Games’ Fortnite Early Access was finally announced and it's going to begin on July 25, 2017. Not only that, but while this craft and shoot game was initially a PC exclusive, it is now also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as Mac. The Fortnite Early Access is set to begin for all the aforementioned formats but you'll have to pay to get in. If you want a four-days head start (July 21) you can purchase a Founder's Pack which will give you entry to Early Access and some of them bring hero packs, boosts and other assorted stuff. You can see all the Founder's Packs items after the new trailer below that was created for E3 2017. It's over four minutes of scavenging, crafting, building and monster bashing.

Fortnite asks players to hunt for loot and use it to create fortresses and traps to avoid the monster invasion. Four classes will be available for now: Constructor, Ninja, Soldier and Outlander, all of them with male/female variations.

Fortnite was announced in 2011 and pretty much disappeared from the radar until 2014, when it was revealed that it was going to be free to play. After a few closed alphas, Fortnite once again vanished until 2017, when Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney revealed that the game was going to ship this year. Fortnite's open beta is planned for 2018. Epic Games is also running Paragon and Unreal Tournament, two other free to play games.
