Over the past few months, Fortnite has taken over homes across the country, and well, across the globe. It is a free-to-play video game that is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and conveniently having the ability for cross-play. Meaning, if your friend has a PC version of the game, you can still play with them on your PS4 system.
It really has brought together so many folks from across the country to unite and… “just build lol” .
The aim of the game is to find a spot on the game’s one and only island where you can find the most supplies and weapons. From here, it’s game on as it’s a full fledged battle royale, much like the Hunger Games. Whether you have a squad of your best friends or going in solo, it’s an all out rumble of events.
This past weekend, I’ve personally become more involved with the game. I started playing with some friends (who shall remain anonymous), and have gradually gotten better at strategy, building and eliminating enemies.
But, I’m still not great at it.
Regardless, it’s a ball of fun to play with friends, and quite frankly any one could pick up the game (seriously, it’s free). The cartoony style of the game definitely helps take the edge off the subject matter, and making it more accessible for people of all ages.
Overall, I highly recommend giving Fortnite a chance if you feel like jumping into the middle of an all out cartoon-style Hunger Games. It’s fun for everyone, and it helps get some anger out, especially after a long semester.
