Fortnite Battle Royal will be Free for everybody from September 26th


Quote:
Hey Fortnite community,

We have exciting news: on September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will be free for everyone on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Mac.

• What’s Fortnite Battle Royale?

It’s a 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite that will be free for everybody on Sept. 26. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.

• So, what’s the catch?

No catch. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and we will not sell items that give a competitive advantage. At some point in the future we will sell other things including cosmetics or compendium-like content.

• Squads are Coming!

On September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will introduce squads. Also, we’re working to improve the feel of combat, controls, weapons, movement and inventory.

• “Save the World” PvE Updates

Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE campaign remains in paid Early Access and we have lots of great updates in the works including the previously announced “Block Party” mode and some spooky October content.

• How Can I Play?

On September 26, Battle Royale will be available as a free download on the Epic Games PC launcher, PlayStation Store and Xbox Store.

• More Questions?

Check out our community FAQ for additional details.
epicgames.com

I just got this one, I like the art a lot and after playing Heroes of the Storm I'm usually up for more pay-to-win gaming as long as you can earn the items for free.

It's not pay-to-win.

keep your borderlands out of my battlegrounds.


I hate this art style, and dare I say cheap graphics.


I've yet to see a "cell shaded" game that pushes hardware as more realistic sided graphics do, and thus I draw the conclusion they don't put enough effort in to it.

If I made "styled" game that was cartoony or ANIME I'd at least put several filters and have far more graphical fidelity given the extra computer performance, these always seem like "look at our style" as a way to say "we don't want to invest much in our engine and graphical design"

that being said, it's subjective, many people seem to love it, so perhaps it's just old flash backs to when borderlands had realistic graphics rather than a cartoony art style, I can't stand it.

I suspect it is trying to be Teamfortress 2.

I like it. I always wanted Valve to turn Teamfortress 2 into a single player game and they seem to have mostly given up on game development. This sure fits the bill.

Not necessarily a DOOM clone, but certainly nothing original. Also, yes, he should go lay down.
