During an SDCC panel for the upcoming Epic Games title Fortnite, Cliff Bleszinski broke some surprising news. Fortnite will be the companies first Unreal Engine 4 title, and that the previously Xbox 360 directed game would now be PC exclusive.
Bleszinski started the panel off with the no-holds-barred announcement, quickly turning this into a console vs. PC firestarter:
"We're here and we're announcing that this is a PC-designed game, it's shipping exclusively for the PC. Next-gen's here. It's been here. It's a high-end PC."
From there, the panel took a look at Fortnite's gameplay, focused mainly on bunker construction, which sounds extremely customizable. There was apparently no coverage of actual combat in the game, despite its premise pertaining to holding off waves of zombies during the night. I wish I could tell you more about it, but there was no video stream of the event.
Expect to hear more about the now PC exclusive Fortnite in coming months, and hopefully Epic will be putting out the gameplay they showed very soon.
