Fortnite: Battle Royale is a surprisingly complex game. New players will not only have to face the challenging, 100-player free gameplay, but also an ever-changing landscape of surprising history. Epic Games has made Fortnite one of the strangest and most intriguing collective experiences in games that sometimes feels more like the enigmatic storytelling of traditional MMOs than a constantly recessed third-person shooter
Line the product of two characteristics. One is the implicit nature of the narrative of the game. Fortnite hides its history in environmental influences and rare events in the world – events that can only be experienced in the face of the ever-active nature of the game, if you are playing at the moment. Second, the game is a nod to the television structure, dividing its temporality into "seasons". Periodic Fortnite Developer Epic Games is releasing a major patch that includes a multitude of new challenges and collectible items as well as aesthetic motifs contributing to the larger backdrop. And when Season 7 arrives tomorrow, you are forgiven for having lost the thread (or just want to know what your friends and / or relatives are already talking about).
Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play game on a large, varied island that seems to have been abandoned, aside from the players playing on it. Whether you play in solo mode or in teams of two or four players, the goal is to be the last team. The fight is both a matter of weapon and design, as players build forts of various sizes and materials (hence the name) to create defenses and ultimately outwit their enemies. That's the game anyway.
At the beginning, Fortnite had no real story. What people refer to as Fortnite is simply the free confrontation of a cooperative survival game with tower defense elements (now Fortnite: Save the World ) banding together to fend off essentially invading alien zombies. The map was updated every season with new obstacles and items, but there was no discernible rhyme or reason for it. One season was medieval; the next one had room stuff. Eventually, things appeared in the sky. At first there were falling stars, then a growing meteor, which seemed to be heading straight for the game world. At the beginning of the fourth game of the game, the meteorites finally began to smash, tearing down part of the map and initiating a new era of Fortnite . In the fifth season, an in-game rocket finally launched after a day-long countdown and caused interdimensional cracks in the sky.
These cracks created temporal distortions, in which different objects from different periods of time reached the map. Slowly, the fissures fused and catalyzed a sixth-season event in which they left Fortnite a large purple cube with glowing glyphs on them. The players liked it, so they gave it a name: Kevin. Kevin hung around for a long time, distorting the shape of the island around him until he broke apart, conjuring up interdimensional alien cube monsters where players can fight. Eventually, Kevin completely exploded, sending magical butterflies into the void of players playing at the time. No seriously.
And now the 7th season is approaching.
What awaits us? Well, there are bunkers under the map's forests that are now open, revealing labs that are apparently ready to investigate the cracks. Fans say that through these experimental portals, they can see a strange distortion that may look like a castle. And the air is getting colder – at certain points on the map, players can see their own breath, and the game's official Twitter account annoyed Snowboarding . Maybe winter will come. Or maybe the reality explodes again. With Fortnite it's hard to say and even harder to put what it means into something. But something happened . So, if you start playing this week, keep your eyes open. You could see something wild.
