UPDATED: New Epic Games Release Is FortNite

Epic Games revealed their brand new franchise at the VGAs tonight, known as Fortnite. I have to be honest for a second, I have no idea what the hell was going on.

The trailer had a Team Fortress 2-esque cartoon look to it. A bunch of guys blow up a building and scavenge the materials. They then build a base and lock themselves in it. At night, monsters appear. Sounds a bit like Minecraft, doesn’t it?

I’ll reserve real judgment until more is seen, but right now Fortnite could be an interesting take on the Minecraft craze.
