Fortnite will be the first Unreal Engine 4 Game, PC Exclusive

PC exclusives by AAA+ companies are becoming a rarity these days, especially when you have a lot of companies that strictly focus on the console. Now Epic Games did not start out as a console-only maker, instead it was steeped in gaming history with titles such as Jazz Jackrabbit, and even the original Gears of War as being on PC. Well it appears as though they are returning to their roots with the reveals of their newest game: Fortnite!

Fortnite will be a PC exclusive and will also be the first to use the studio’s Unreal Engine 4! The engine itself has been in the works for a while so it stands to be a graphics and physics powerhouse when released. Those graphics show in the comic book/cutesy characters and enemies you see in the reveal screens. Fortnite has the potential to revolutionize the sandbox/survival genre. You will be building defenses and weapons to fight against hordes of monsters that attack you.

The game is not quite close to release though with its release date as being sometime in 2013.
