first minute or so of the first video and i was in, as it went on, and then the second video, they lost me. I think there's too much going on and it's just a mashup of TF2, DayZ, Borderlands....

Just an update, the preorder is for early access to the Early Access build of the game. This will be going Free-To-Play next year.

I think with the founders packs you can get friend keys to give out, if any of you have a spare one feel free to throw me one ;)

Post by: ViRuSsK on August 07, 2017, 10:26:43 PM
So a friend sent me a code to play this, been playing last few hours... its pretty good.

If youre into tower defense type games (plants vs zombies, orcs must die, etc) then definitely check this out.

You can buy keys for about $20 usd from people who have gotten the more expensive packs with the friend invites (but watch out you dont get scammed of course )

This game runs like a dream on my PS4 Pro now, they definitely optimised the game a heap since I've last played.

So is it still only BR mode thats free to play in this? I'm not super keen on BR games, but co-op PvE looks fun

Theres currently a halloween event which is neat. honestly i'd say drop $30 or what ever for the base game and you wont be disappointed.

One of my mates offered me a free code yesterday but I said I wasn't sure (didn't want to waste his freebie if I wasn't going to play)... maybe I'll take up his offer.

Would be keen on giving it a go with others

I've had a few cracks at BR now and I reckon it's a great game, at least for a small break from other games.

Is anyone else playing this on PS4?

I've spent a bit of time on this now with the battle royale side as it is the free to play side of it.
And I am finding it a lot of fun.
Because it is so quick to get into a game and for the game to start, I find that I don't rage anywhere near as much when I die.
And I found the game can be fun in any mode, from solo to squad games.

And I am pretty certain that the game age rating is 12+
So anyone under that age means that the game was downloaded with a adults account.
If you have no idea what games your child is playing, IMO that's the parents fault not the game makers fault.

Oh and that thumbnail of the video I reckon is scarier then the game.  :troll:

Awww, what rubbish. This is the only game keeping me playing at the moment, I've not been interested to start anything that actually requires thought or a lot of time, just way too much other stuff going on.

Seems like the media will latch onto and create a any kind of story on anything that is popular.

That's a different kind of perty @spazmanaught. No1 can match that.

I was the same, loaded it when it first came out... play 1 round died in <1min and thought stuff it, that's a waste.
Then my 8yr old started playing it and I watched him and realised it can be a bit of fun... he gave me some tips and now I'm hooked - so don't try and take it away from me Tracy!
Title: Re: Fortnite
Post by: Ant on April 16, 2018, 11:17:02 AM
Yeah, my 13 YO and a bunch of his friends are playing it (even though all we parents have banned it based on Tracy's advice). It looks a lot of fun, but he would give me such a hard time if I got into it.
Title: Re: Fortnite
Post by: MajorSpazz on April 16, 2018, 04:42:12 PM
I find it fun for a couple of quick games.
The battle Royal side is free to play where you can buy things like skins etc.
But I haven't payed a cent yet.
And in Squad or duo mode its worth a few laughs.
I have found lately to that the map is hugely upgraded with places to roam everywhere.
Just one tip, learn to build fast.
You can shoot all you like but defence is a huge plus.

In buildings generally, but also on cars. You hear an ongoing chime / tone when you are near loot.  You will have to get your axe out at times to get to them.

See the Epic announcement (no pun intended, I mean the announcement from the company named Epic who makes fortnite, not that the announcement isn't epic although it's pretty Massive, not the Division developer Massive, I digress  :troll: lol )
About providing $100 million dollars prize money for esports/ fortnite for the next year over 139 or so tournaments.
To put it into perspective the entire annual esports value last year was about  $89 million spread across counter strike ~$23m, league of legends ~$32m and overwatch etc..
