Game Review

By: Dylan Hutchinson

Fortnite by Epic Games was released on July 25th of 2017. It has kept its spot on the top games list. Since its release date It has been continuously updated, with the most recent one being the Valentine's Day update. Released February 10th, this update consisted of many bug fixes a change to the bullet drop and the biggest change was the addition of a cupid crossbow. Preceding the Valentine's Day update was the biggest update Fortnite has seen so far. This big update was released on January 22nd and consisted of new maps, weapons and medical supplies. Epic Games went all out on this update changing the game completely. They added a total of five new big towns and many random areas in between. When asked about the update Freshman Tristan Hendricks said I enjoy the new areas because it adds many new aspects on the game. Others who are not as fond of the update say its to easy for campers to hide throughout the whole game because Tilted Towers has many rooms and buildings and its location is near the center of the map. The percentage of people who favor towns to land in are insane Tilted Towers averaged a 48% of people Haunted Hills a 15% of people Snobby Shores a 21% of people Shifty Shafts 16% of people as you can see Tilted Towers wins that one by a huge margin. These are only the new towns so excluding the old ones such as wailing woods Tamato Town and so on. In addition to areas many new weapons have also been added to Fortnite as well these include the mini-gun, crossbow, silenced pistol and the silenced SMG. Epic Games have also added many health consumables such as chug jug, campfire, mini potion and Slurp juice. Fortnite is a online game released not to long ago and has became a completely new game pulling in more and more players and is currently at 3.4 million players. In conclusion, Fortnite is a great game that you have to try; its free after all. Epic games has said this game will continue to be updated weekly seasonally and soon to be monthly so look forward too that.
