Unreal Engine 4 PC Exclusive: Fortnite

Epic Games' Fortnite will be the company's first game to take advantage of Unreal Engine 4. Debuted at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, the cartoony action title is being described as "a co-op sandbox survival game," with building at the core of the game. "Everything you find allows you to build and improve your structure," producer Tanya Jessen told an audience at a Comic-Con panel. Given that no current console can run Unreal Engine 4, the game will be exclusive to PC. According to The Verge, Epic's Cliff Bleszinski told the audience: "This is a PC designed game, shipping exclusively on the PC."

Fortnite will be available in 2013.

I just hope the engine will power a Jedi Knight game. I crossed my fingers the moment I finished Jedi Academy on the most difficult setting in 2003 and they are still crossed. I fear they will be that way until the end of time.

Pretty good??
If you ask me Grim Fandango from '98 had better graphics and this was 14 years ago... ;)

PCs can overall produce far superior quality pictures over consoles, thus instead of making a game that has pretty good graphics, they make a frigging paint by numbers cartoon.

Are you kidding me?

What's to get excited about? Really? Game play better be good that's all I can say.
