Fortnite redebuts on the cover of Game Informer
Tespite its protracted development cycle, the buzz surrounding the game had always been positive. It’s strange to read Game Informer’s glowing cover story four years later— especially when you consider that Fortnite’s eventual Early Access release was still three years away—but it looked good! It was in this feature that Epic announced Fortnite would include Diablo- style loot, an RPG progression framework, and most importantly, be free-to-play. Rob Zacny’s impressions at PCGamesN included his thoughts on a team-based multiplayer mode that felt like a “work-in-progress.” Truly, nobody discovered the potential of competitive Fortnite until the moment Battle Royale was released.
