Fortnite refers to a videogame series, set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-infested world. It is produced by Epic Games and uses the company’s signature Unreal Engine. At present, there are two games that fall under the Fortnite umbrella: a team-based survival shooter called Fortnite: Save the World and Fortnite: Battle Royale, which as the name suggests is a last-person-standing game.
The former was released in a paid-for early access version in July 2017. A free-to-play version was anticipated in 2019, but Epic has since announced it will remain a ‘premium experience’. It is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, and macOS.
