Fortnite Retail Copies Now Available

Posted on 28 Jul 2017

The forthcoming free-to-play, sandbox action-building title from Gearbox publishing and developed by Epic Games, are pleased to announce that, as of today, retail copies of Fortnite are now available to purchase for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

You must be wondering why “free-to-play” and “purchase” are in the same sentence above, welp, simple really… those interesting in getting a head start at playing Fortnite can do so if they purchase the retail Early Access Pack. This comes bundled with plenty of goodies and instant access (more details below), which isn’t too bad, the rest of us will just have to wait until sometime in 2018 for the actual free-to-play version to launch.

Official Press Release

Fortnite Now Available In Stores

The Action Building Game For PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4!

28 July 2017 – Fortnite the ultimate Action Building game from Epic Entertainment is now in stores. On PlayStation®4, Xbox One the all-in-one-entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC, the game retail version includes the Founder’s Pack of loot, weapons, and heroes.

Don’t Take Shelter, Make It

Developed by Epic Games, the only company smart enough to attach chainsaws to guns, Fortnite is the Action Building game powered by Unreal Engine 4. Fortnite allows hardcore shooter fans, master treehouse builders, and katana-slicing ninjas to play in the same, beautifully-realized world for hundreds of hours. The forecast for the world of Fortnite calls for storms of new threats and the means to fight them every few weeks.

Key Features

Hero Complex

Recruit and train commandos, ninjas, constructors, and outlanders to take on the monster hordes. For your most dangerous missions, assign your biggest badasses to Hero Squads and take back Earth together.

Design and Conquer

The revolutionary building system allows you to create extravagant forts while juggling frenetic combat. Lure the monsters into devastating traps that use poison darts, metal spikes, and sentry guns–but build wisely. The monster hordes can smell design flaws like fresh meat.

Master the Craft

Use scavenged resources to craft ridiculous weapons like homemade sniper rifles, hydraulic mining axes, and launch pads that send monsters flying. As you move your heroes up the skill tree, unlock schematics for even wilder weapons of DIY destruction.

Make Friends

With seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op play and procedurally-designed maps, Fortnite is fun for shooters, builders, explorers, and ninjas alike.
