    Yes another battle royale game. However they are taking it to the next level. They are supposed to release official game play this month which im sure will be the Demo they show at E3. If this is as good as it seems like it will be ill be uninstalling PUBG.


    Their website which has very minimal info.

    3rd person is more popular and a ton of people won't buy it if there is no option for 3rd.

    in china maybe.

    ton of people didn't buy cs go, battlefield 1, call of duty? way more money has been made on first person titles than third person ones.

    I've avoided third person games for years, particularly if a game was designed to be a tactical shooter since the camera essentially ruins a lot of the positioning aspect. Fortnite is the first third person game I caved to play since 1) you can build your own cover, 2) it has a faster paced arena-like feel (it's more TF2 than CS:GO), and 3) it's the first game in years where my RL friends were all playing together on PC.

    I really don't get the appeal of a game designed to be realistic but then allows you to see more than you naturally could see from your position.

    It's way too early to judge this particular IP, but I think it's pretty clear that server infrastructure, anti-cheat, and ongoing developer support will absolutely make or break a battle royale game. You can have the coolest ideas and best graphics in the world but if you drop the ball on any of those you're DOA.

    You couldn't be more wrong and they aren't going to deliberately make their game a failure to satistisfy a few people. If you don't like third person the battle royal genre is not for you.
