Fortnite will be a PC exclusive and the first game to run on Unreal Engine 4

We’ve got some more news coming out of Comic Con today, as Epic Games used its time at the event to show off its upcoming zombie sandbox game Fortnite, which hasn’t been seen since last year’s VGAs.

With this presentation came some new details about the game, such as the fact that it will be a PC exclusive and it will also be the very first game to run on Unreal Engine 4.

Epic also discussed the game’s enemies. Of course we already know about the goblinish zombies (which have now been dubbed Husks) but they won’t be the only baddies looking to tare down your forts. The hulking Smashers will wreck-up your walls Kool-Aid Man style, as crafty and devious Trolls phase through the walls that are left standing to steal your inventory and open doors up to let the Husks in to take a bite out of you.

You can also upgrade your forts so you have a better chance of withstanding these monstrous attacks but to do that, you’ll have to wander around the town to gather the necessary supplies and fight these freaks head-on, so be sure to have some good melee weapons on hand.

Hopefully you and your team will have your fortress prepared for when the Husks, Smashers, and Trolls invade next year.
