Where to begin
Fortnite is a FREE game compatible with PC, Smartphone, XBOX, PS4 and many gaming console. You don’t need to have a gaming console to play this game. Simply go to Epic games and sign-up. Your name and email is what is needed to sign up. Soon after sign-up your game download begins.
Install the Map
After you install the game and ready to play, it will ask you to download the map. Remember this map is your battle field, so go ahead and install it. This download also allows you to purchase ‘Save the World’ co-op PvE campaign during Early access season.
Get on the battle field
Once you are through with basic installation and set up, get on a giant flying blue bus that will take you to the battlefield. Jump off the bus on the battle field. Remember, at this point you do not have any survival tools other than a wood cutting axe and desperately needs to find one. You don’t have to start shooting or hitting your opponent, rather use your construction skills to collect elements like wood, brick and metal. It also lets you mine some of your material just like “Minecraft“. You can toggle between your position on the map, location of the storm including eye of the storm and locate your opponents. Now let the game begins.
If you are familiar with ‘Shooters’ or ‘Call of Duty‘, you will get easily customary to this game and able to ascend quickly. You will have only one life and survival is the winning. Remember, there are 99 other players foraying into the same battle field with same goal, so survival is not that easy.
You will fighting your enemies on a large island with an ever shrinking habitable area. If someone starts shooting at you in the game, you can immediately conjure a wall from the ether in front of you. Just building a long, tall fortifying wall around you doesn’t guarantee success, rather you need to be creative in utilizing your resources.
Free vs Paid version
The building aspect of Free version “Fortnite Battle Royale” gives an interesting tactical twist, and the time limits and land size are compressed thus making it a lot more chaotic and fast paced. When you go to the paid version (F2P PvE mode), all it really does it unlock some stuff, and give you some stuff you earn throughout playing the game. Fortnite is a lootbox focused mobile style game and more you play, hone your skills it will help you reach what you could achieve with the paid version. There are no short cuts.
Collect all the epic loot you can to fill your coffers. These are the life essentials that will help you with your survival. Whether you are building a wall or constructing your survival module, these epic loots always come handy. More you play, more you will be rewarded and once you accumulate enough loot, you can beat your opponent handily (remember the opposite is quite true as well)
Buzz and Rumors
You play the Battle pass season 4. There is also a buzz that season 5 will be launching soon. The buzz has gained more traction since yesterday’s launch of Fortnite Rocket. It was a spectacular and epic launch. No one knows what the rocket was, who launched it and if anyone got eliminated by the rockets. According to one thread, it may be redoing of the entire Battle Royale map. The visitors skin (Blockbuster skin) is using the rocket to go home. But the rocket fails and ruins the world. Fortnite will rebuild the Battle map afresh in the upcoming Battle pass Season 5. Season 5 is believed to be history themed and you may get to see Pyramids and some Greek, Roman and Egyptian artifacts. There will be an extension added to the map around C8. The time machine is supposedly to be located on this extension.
Game Hacks & Cheats
Become Invisible – this is a glitch in PS4. You need to be expert to go under the map, that way no one can see you. Again not legit and I would discourage you to bank on it.
Hide in the bush. Wear clothes like bush and hide your self. Wait for an opportune time eliminate your opponent. Or simply wait for all your opponents eliminate each other out.
Be friend with a pro. You need to build your team to take on the enemy. Better find someone who has collected tons of loot, expert in the game. Simply ride on his expertise and soon you will get a boost in the game. Your worthy team member can teach you couple of controls until you get familiarize your self.
