There is no way in the world you have not heard about Fortnite, especially if you are here because something made you click on this category, right? Was it curiosity? Was it wanting to play some of the best battle royale games online ever? Well, no matter the reason, we are very happy that you are now on our page, which is currently one of the best pages you can visit and enjoy here all free of charge!
There are two types of people in the world. People who play this kind of game, and if they play it, you know they love it, since it is one of the most addictive and fun games of our generation, and we’re highly positive it will be fondly remembered by years to come, even when it will no longer be popular. The second type of people is those who have only heard of the game it is that popular. Some might think it is childish, some might be curious to know more about it.
We would argue that Fortnite is the game that made the battle royale genre as popular as it is at the moment, with other notable mentions being that of PUBG, which also got started in 2017 and it is its main rival, as well as Apex Legends, for which we also have a category. The genre will become even better with the release of upcoming games like Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, Valhall, or Call of Duty: Warzone.
What is Fortnite?
Is a video game that is played online in a multiplayer format, meaning that you can’t play it against bots. We like that, since playing against and together with people from all over the world makes the gameplay more enjoyable, as well as more challenging, so there’s more fun to be had from all this. It was first released in 2017 by Epic Games, and since that moment the game became bigger and bigger by the year. Even huge musicians did concerts on the game, such as Travis Scott in 2020, so that is quite the testament to the popularity of the franchise.
The genres that these multiplayer games would be included in would be survival games since you try to survive and last until the end of each round, battle royale games, which means that multiple players are thrown into the same arena and are fighting for survival against the other ones, as well as sandbox games because it also requires and encourages the players to get creative and build their own worlds to have fun in.
The game is multi-platform so that as many people as possible can enjoy it, which is why you can play it on your personal computer, on consoles like Xbox or PlayStation, and even on your iOS or Android phone or tablet, so wherever you are you can play Fortnite. Of course, you can now also do it from your browsers, only on GamesZap!
How to play?
In the game, you are able to customize your avatar and your outfit, with all sorts of skins being available. We’ve got Abstrakt, who uses aerosol cans to fight, Aerial Threat, who is a gifted footballer, Backbone, who is a biker, Beef Boss, who has a hamburger head, Cabbie, who is a racer, Chaos Agent, a really powerful villain, and many more. Each new season does not bring about just a new island for the location, but plenty of new and awesome characters and skins to use.
Players can use tools at their disposal to tear down structures and get their resources, such as metal or wood, using them for their own bases. Make sure to build forts for protecting yourself, such as walls, floors, or stairs. This is not as much about action and fighting as it is about being creative and using the resources at your disposal to both defend and attack, and we are highly positive that all of you will do a great job at all of this
