Based on a Japanese movie franchise
The Battle Royale mode of Fortnite is greatly based on the cruel Japanese film franchise with the same name, “Battle Royale”; in these films a group of troubled scholars that act out in society are dropped on an island with the intention to kill each other, so that peace can be restored to Japanese society. The immensely popular game “PlayerUnknown’s Battleground” was the first game that actually made a video game that was based on the Battle Royale movie franchise by creating a game during which 100 players could battle each other at the same time on a huge map.
What is Fortnite exactly?
The goals in this game are pretty simple, yet very challenging. In the “Save the World” mode of Fortnite you try to fight of masses of zombies by building fortresses with boobytraps, and you can protect yourself with a huge arsenal of different types of weapons, but you can also make your own defence material. The “Battle Royale” version is more based on the gameplay of PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, because you need to make sure to be the last one standing in a map full of gamers that will try to make your gaming-life miserable.
Since there are so many different elements to Fort nite, it is hard to put this game in a single video game genre, also because the gameplay of Fortnite is somewhere in-between Minecraft with tower-defence, but it is also a co-op third-person shooter with elements of RPG games scattered all over it. In short, there are many possibilities in Fortnite, and this results in a very cool mix of all sorts of genres. Fort nite can be played with up to four gamers at the same time.
