Fortnite To Use Online DRM?

Fortnite may use always-on online DRM akin to Diablo III's, reports Rock, Paper, Shotgun based on an interview with Tanya Jessen, producer on Epic's upcoming Minecraft-style game. "Itís gonna be really dependent on gameplay, and itís also dependent on platform Ė the method of getting updates and stuff like that. So I canít say for sure today one way or another [whether or not we're going to use it]," she tells them. "Fortnite is a game thatís being developed as a co-op experience primarily. Thatís our number one focus. This is a game youíre gonna want to play with your friends, and itís most fun with your friends. So whatever we decide to do there is gonna be more relevant to the most fun experience you can have with your friends [than it is to piracy]. But I canít nail that down today." All that said about co-op, she does add that: "Single-playerís absolutely gonna be super fun."

If this requires you to be online to play the single player, I will not buy it. If you make your game unfriendly to consumers, I will simply buy the version of it that someone else makes that IS friendly to consumers. Case in point, I didn't buy Diablo III but I've had Torchlight 2 on pre-order for months.
