Most downloaded games of 2019, Fortnite has broken all the records. The game is now available on all the platforms: computer, PS4, XboxOne. It is in version 11.01, which is the second update of Chapter 2 Season 1. The game is always evolving, the developers put a great amount of work to fix bugs, create new content and improve the gameplay.
Fortnite is a battle royale. Every game starts the same but never ends the same. Here are the basics you must know. 100 players are thrown by the air on a map. The last player to be alive wins. To survive, you should loot weapons, shields and special objects in chests. Those chests are usually at the same place in every game. This means that the more you play, the better you loot. Once you have enough loot, you can start fighting. Once again, the more you play, the more accurate you are and the best you shoot down your enemies.
For now, you think that Fortnite is just like every single other Battle Royale on the market, right? Well, it is not! I avoided to mention you the biggest change, and I am going to mention it right now. You can loot anything: trees to get planks, rocks to get bricks, wire meshes to get steel, and so on. With these materials, you can build walls, stairs, roofs... house basically! These buildings help you during the fights. This gives another dimension to fights. Imagine you want to shoot someone, but he keeps building up walls in front of him, covering him from your fire. In a few seconds, you will be out of ammo and he will only have used some materials. He can then shoot you down if you do not have ammo anymore.
In the early days of the game, this mechanic was controversial. Some players found it too hard, too strong, and so on. Nowadays, it is all part of the game. And if you do not want to use this mechanic, you will soon be in trouble. Indeed, it is very strong, but it makes the game way funnier.
Playing alone is good, but playing with friends is better! This option is available in Fornite and very easy to use. Simply put yourself in the same group before the game starts and choose a team game. Teamplay will give another dimension to this game. It gives more strategy, more intensity during the fights.
The Fortnite phenomenon did not stop behind the screens. There is now merchandising everywhere. You can buy t-shirts, card games, alarm clocks and pretty much all the goodies you can imagine. This was made possible by the community. A lot of streamers streamed Fortnite on Twitch. It was the most streamed game for a long time in 2018 and 2019. Streamers, like Ninja, helped the game to develop and grow. The issues were pointed out well by the streamers and the community, which helped the game to improve.
