UE4 Fortnite PC Release Next Year

During a Comic-Con panel today, Epic Games revealed that Fortnite will use the Unreal Engine 4, and that their Minecraft-style building and survival game will be released for PCs in 2013. They offer a few Fortnite screenshots showing off the game's visuals, and word from the show is: "Attendees also received a first look at Fortnite’s building system, which is designed so that players can use scavenged materials to quickly build and renovate structures of varying materials and complexity."

id only thought to attempt a cash in on the post-apocalyptic popularity. Epic really knows how to pander!

Post Apocalypse: Check
Zombies: Check
Minecraft: Check
TF2 art style: Check

All that remains is them to reveal the micro-transaction model for this "free to play" game. After all the sucking up to Tim Shaffer that CliffyB has done lately, I'm sure he'll also call this an indie title.

Exactly, even though they're obviously trying REALLY hard to ape TF2, it just doesn't have the same charm. The characters are generic edgy/grunge/hipster/blah and the setting is even more uninspired. Even Minecraft's block worlds are probably more fun to explore than this.

I'll remain cautiously optimistic though, despite all this, it's just in my nature. :p
