I want to see what this whole "battle royal" thing is and was thinking of getting that game cause I heard it was free. I now see an article about 40 million downloads and decide to search on steam. It just doesn't appear.

Is it free or not?

The old "if it's not on steam it doesn't exist" brain damage eh? Use the google luke.
Even I'm not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality

He's not questioning that. He's mocking the fact that you seem under the impression that the game not existing on Steam is somehow a problem.

The fact that if you type "fortnite" into Google, and the VERY FIRST LINK that comes up is the official website, with the download link and a gigantic "PLAY FREE NOW" link as soon as you open that page, apparently requires "much more updated answers." I'm not sure exactly what sort of additional information you thought you might find on here over the official website, which again, is the very first link on Google.

That said, this topic does indeed reek of "no Steam no play" nonsense, rather than a legitimate question, which effectively answers itself with a whole lot less effort than creating this topic did...

If you really want some more detail though, yes, Fortnite's battle royale mode is free. The standard game is not.

Stop turning every topic into typical GFAQs drama. Rather than assuming some ulterior motive you could just answer his question. Or not answer his question and tell him to look it up himself.

On topic: The BR mode is F2P while the Zombie Survival mode is sorta P2P now(early access they call it) and apparently going F2P in Feb. last time I heard.

Ok...articles on the internet say that it isn't F2P yet. But according to you, it IS free. Did search the official site and it says it is "free". So I guess I'll download.

No steam release? Kind of weird.

Uh, no - the message you quoted clearly reads that the PvP portion is free while the PvE one isn't. Yet, it would be later this year. I don't see how that clashes with the information that the game "isn't F2P yet".

As someone that doesn't know anything about the game or what "modes" or what-not (to me, a game is a game. Not whatever you're talking about with "modes" or whatever), understanding that the game IS available to play and isn't just for people paying money for a "pre-release" is, in fact, the info I was looking for.
