Isn't Fortnite supposed to be some F2P game?

Yeah, some no-name companies like to avoid Steam entirely sometimes.

Shame, really, since the games that aren't on Steam are usually not very well known and sell very poorly.


In the case of Fortnite, it did sell very poorly and was on the brink of death. Had the BR mode not saved it, the game would have been a huge flop.

Without the BR mode you can bet your ass that the game would have been on Steam after it launched out of early access.

I've always wondered what people typed into google when they say they couldn't find something on google.

Like what the f*** did you type to not get the official fortnite website as the first result?

I typed in Fortnite f2p.

got a ton of articles all stating that the game WILL be f2p but isn't now. though you could purchase some kind of pack to play in the "pre-season".

But no recent articles stating that you could, in fact, play the game.
Perhaps a one sided CTF in Overwatch? 1 team captures the "flag" X times. Then flip roles

I explained it in my first post. The Battle Royale Mode(not the main "game", but a multiplayer PVP mode) is free to play, but "Fortnite" itself is not free yet. If you were looking to play Fortnite(as in the game advertised simply as Fortnite) for free you need to wait till alittle later this year.

IMO, I think everyone knows that "fortnite" is just whatever this new craze is on battle royal games. And when someone references fortnite, it is about that.

Your opinion is wrong though. Fortnite is a PvE game. with a free PvP mode.

Fortnite didn't even *have* a battle royale mode until well after it was released.

ok fair enough. i just typed "fortnite f2p" into google and yeah i got a bunch or stories about the game, not the official site.

but seriously dude, after that your instinct was to come here instead of just trying "fortnite" in google?
