Fortnite Battle – A Brief Overview Of The Game
Fortnite is a new online survival game released in April of this year. The original version was developed for Windows but the latest release is now available for Mac, Linux and Facebook. Fortnite has received critical acclaim since its inception and it is one of the most popular online games today. I have been playing the game for almost a month now and I can already tell you that it is every bit as challenging and engrossing as its competitors.
Unlike other survival games, fortnite provides a great number of options for players to choose from. There are currently 5 different game modes available in the game and each mode is designed differently. In adventure mode, players take on the role of a survivor who must survive the first few days of the disaster while fighting off waves of enemy invaders. Players can pick up weapons from the beginning and progress through the story at their own pace. At higher levels, they can choose to be a leader and command other survivors through the landscape. The highest difficulty of fortnite offers more than enough of a challenge and it is exciting to see what new ideas Epic Games will bring to the table with the upcoming updates.
One of the challenges I’ve seen many players fall victim to is the inability to communicate with others on the map. The problem is especially severe when the majority of your communication tools are either Windows based or use a keyboard and mouse. With the latest version of the mobile version, players are now able to utilize Xbox Kinect technology to communicate with others in the game. With the help of the Kinect camera, the player no longer needs to press buttons on the controller to send a message but instead can simply point at an icon on the screen and instantly have their character send a message to another player.
Throughout the years, video games have included interactive features which allow for players to add their personality to the game. However, fortnite takes this to the next level. You are now able to personalize your character and use a wide variety of emotes to let your character depict various moods. Each of these emotes is tied to a specific skill which further enhances the game play experience. For example, there is an unlock emote which allows the player to shout out an effective response whenever they land a successful blow on an enemy. Other skills include a sniping mode which allows the player to aim accurately at their opponent and a boost emote which raises both their defense and attack simultaneously.
In order to add more depth to the gameplay, developers have introduced voice chat options. Players can now talk to their friends using the included Xbox Kinect voice chat feature to give them tips and tricks on how to beat the competition. The voice chat options are limited at the moment but it is clear that it will only become available as more players join in on the Fortnite battle. In addition to the voice chat option, players can now also get into heated battles with other fortnite players via the Fortnite lobby. If you are not familiar with voice chat, it works exactly like that of the classic Ultima game where you would type your commands in chat boxes and then hear them echo on the screen.
In terms of graphics and performance, the game is quite impressive. It runs at a smooth frame rate, which makes it a pleasure to play for long periods of time without feeling frustrated or bored. The game’s physics system is one of the most realistic and robust among any browser game to date. You can feel the authenticity of the battle, even when you are thousands of feet above the ground. If you want to try out the Xbox Kinect port of fortnite, you can purchase it from various online gaming portals at a reasonable price.
