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."

Blizzard should totally sue them for copyrights infringement.

however, Diablo III was designed from the beginning to be an online game that can be enjoyed with friends, and the always-online requirement is the best way for us to support that design. The effectiveness of the online elements -- including the friends list and cross-game communication; co-op matchmaking; persistent characters that you can use by yourself, with others, and in PvP; and some of our customer support, service, and security components -- is tied directly to the online nature of the game. These and other online-enabled features are essential to our design for Diablo III. That said, there are still improvements we believe we can make to expand the online experience and make co-op play even more rewarding, and this will remain one of our priorities moving forward.
