Fortnite Launch Trailer

Fortnite is due on July 25th, and Epic Games paves the way with a cinematic launch trailer. This is titled "Hard Days Night," since referencing a 53 year-old song (and movie) is a way to draw in the kids. But just in case, they go far more modern for the soundtrack with the 35 year-old Astro Zombies by the Misfits. Here's the description of the clip: "Strange things are afoot at the DurrrBurger. Assemble the squad and get ready for the launch of Fortnite with the 'Hard Days Night' cinematic short."

Played this with the wife at a special event at PAX West 2014. It doesn't look like it's changed much. The grind does seem real, but the more annoying this was the fucking artillery zombies.

So you put all this effort into building a base that funnels them into your traps and guns etc. and then they spawn these zombies that stay 100m away from your base and just lob artillery, and in a minute your roof has caved in, leaving your base mostly buggered.

For your transgressions you shall be labeled a shill, called an idiot and anytime you mention facts or disagree with a tribe member you will henceforth be known as a troll. The best you can hope for is that the labels won't haunt your offspring. -RedEye9

I don't like laying traps or tower defense, will I like this game?

Probably not. A huge part of the game is harvesting resources to construct traps for base defense before the waves of bad guys start.

I played it for a while a few months back. It was fun for a couple dozen hours but then it just gets SUPER grindy to make any progress without spending money. And I found the AI to be annoying. You spend all this time laying out traps and the AI will just go around it or break a hole in the wall and avoid everything you laid out. Smart for the AI? Yeah. Fun for the player? Not so much.

Wonder if it's still under NDA. I rather enjoyed it off and on. Needed a lot more players though. I stopped because I didn't want to repeat my progression when it launches.

The trailer was pretty hard to watch, but a coop survival game from a more experienced studio is something I should keep an eye on.

Gameplay actually looks pretty fun, but eh, too busy with other stuff right now.

I miss the old days when "launch" meant the game was finished.
