Fortnite is Epic's first Unreal Engine 4 game, heading exclusively to PC

Quote:
Fortnite is Epic's first Unreal Engine 4 game and it'll ship "exclusively for the PC," Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinksi said today during a San Diego Comic-Con 2012 panel. "We're here and we're announcing that this is a PC-designed game, it's shipping exclusively for the PC," he told a crowd of attendees.

"Next-gen's here. It's been here. It's a high-end PC," Bleszinski said. He added that the dudebro-free Fortnite didn't "make sense" for Unreal Engine 3, and cheered PCs as being part of Epic's "heritage."

Fortnite, which sees characters building bunkers and emplacements to defend against the monsters of the night, was suspected of being a PC exclusive earlier this year when it popped up on a LinkedIn listing for PC. The listing was quickly changed after we brought it to the attention of Epic Games.

We'll have more from Epic's SDCC panel as soon as we can (it's still going on!).

The main factor here being graphics, that teaser did not impress me.

That video was actually 8 months old.

It's a PC exclusive. I'm paying attention.

Fortnite coming 2013, first screenshots

Quote:
Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Epic Games revealed the first look at its co-op sandbox survival game, Fortnite, which will be exclusive to PC and the first game to utilize Unreal Engine 4.

During its Comic Con panel, Epic announced the game will release in 2013, allowing players to “explore, forage, collaborate and build by day in their own dynamic and expanding world.”

At night, they’ll have to work together to defend their fortress “from the forces of darkness.”

Attendees at the panel also received a first look at Fortnite’s building system, which is designed so that “players can use scavenged materials to quickly build and renovate structures of varying materials and complexity.”

Screenshots are below.

There's probably a bunch of heavy processing in the background, but I don't see any of it in those shots. It looks like something Unreal Engine 3 could produce, which worries me that EPIC just wants to promote Unreal Engine 4 while completely doing away with UE3.

To be clear - Fortnite is PC primary and first, but we wouldn't rule out the possibility of other platforms later.
Fortnite is trending #2 & Unreal Engine 4 at #1 on Twitter!!

Mm, I don't know... The graphics look a lot smoother than the usual UE3 game. Sure, things lack details, but it's the art style, so it's intentional.
I don't think this is the right way to promote UE4, though.

The exclusivity is not what I care about, if the PC is the main platform, I'm happy with it.

At a closer look, I only notice the smooth, colorful lighting. Everything else must be behind the scenes stuff, or only something a hardcore tech enthusiast would notice. Maybe if I were to see gameplay in motion...
