Fortnite – is it worth it?

Fortnite – is it worth it?

Fortnite is one of the most popular games during year 2017 and 2018. It has 2 different game modes. First one is PVE co-operation game called “Save the world” the second is more popular PVP Battle Royal game mode. After the launch there has been millions and millions of players worldwide. Is it still worth it?

Fortnite Battle Royal

Fist of all. It is easy for you to try it. It is free. (Battle royal version). You can spend your money in the game if you want, but it is optional, and it is not “pay to win” kind of a game. No. You can use your money to change how your character looks etc. Players should still be cautious. Players get very tempted to use their money on different skins all the time because there is new content every week. And the skins just are awesome.

Fortnite Battle Royal is a lot different than for examble PUBG (Player unknown’s Battlegrounds.). In Fortnite you can pretty much destroy anything and one of the most important things in the game is to build cover. It is one of the most important elements on the game. If you want to succeed you have to learn to build fast.

There is ton of YouTube content out there. You can easily check out how the game looks like and what it is all about by checking out some of the content from YouTube. I would say that everyone should check the youtubers “Ninja” and “Muselk” which are 2 totally different players, but both make good quality content about playing Fortnite.

If you are interested about the game, you should try it out. I will say however that you will lose in this game (many and still many times). Afterall only 1 can win from the 100 who start the game with you. And I promise that your heartbeat will hit the roof because all the excitement.

Fortnite Save the World

This version of the game is not free. (atleast it wasn’t when I last checked). It is very nice version of the game also. You will be shooting some monsters (“Zombies”) together with your friends or alone if you like more of a Solo content. You can play it with random players also. There is multiple different missions in where well you need to save the world.

You can choose your character who all have different skills. Some are good at exploring when others like to play with the sword. Also, you can change your character when you are in the lobby. There are different game modes where you usually protect something by building a structures over it, or you just go and kill some monsters. There is ton of different content for many hours of gameplay. I bought the Fortnite Save the World mode for my PS4 and I have had lot of fun with it.

You can play Fortnite on every platform.

You can play this game with Xbox, PC, PS4 and I think now even with Android mobile phone. I like to play the PVP Battle Royal with PC more than with PS4 because I get confused with the building options so many times that I decided that my computer will be better chose to beat the guys who just seems to be much better at the game than I am.

Should you play it?

It is up to you. It is ton of fun, but it is also very difficult game. It will get your adrenaline pumping for sure. I will recommend to try it out and not stop after few tries. As those will probably be failures. You will need lot of practice to win the other guys. There is new content all the time and the game area changes after every season. The developers seem to use lot of effort to make this game better and better. They add new weapons, new skins and new content so often that I find every time something new.

You win some you lose some.
