Fortnite is a third person wave-based online co-op multiplayer survival shooter with base-building mechanics, where you and your other gamers go gather resources to fortify the gate that you have to protect from the monsters as it continues to be closed.
Aside from how nice it looks utilizing the power of the Unreal Engine 4, it combines resources gather and building that survival games have been known for, with third person shooter mechanics like Loadout or Battlefield: Heroes, and and core/tower defense mechanics like in games such as Dungeon Defenders and Orcs Must Die, but all mixed and adjusted to suite the game’s design.
