Developer Epic Games have announced that their upcoming survival sandbox game, ‘Fortnite’ is starting its Alpha period from December 2nd to December 19th.
Epic are calling this test 1 and they are using it to test various small features but will mostly focus on the gameplay mechanics. If anyone has been following the game and would be interested in participating in this alpha you can go to the sign up page.
Fortnite is a co op survival game that revolves around the day and night cycle. Through the day players will gather resources and build fortifications and at night you will be forced to retreat into these fortifications to defend yourself against waves of monstrous creatures.
The game will be free to play upon its release sometime next year.
