Fortnite developed by Epic Games is a cooperative sandbox survival game that revolves around players fortifying their base from day to day against monsters. Players will have to explore for gear and materials to scavenge in order to survive the night.
Epic Games has sent word that the 7.0 update to the Fortnite alpha will be incoming soon with a number of significant changes to core game features. Players can look forward to a new static skill tree with specific regard to upgrading buildings and sub-buildings. The Home Base buildings have been completely removed.

Those lucky enough to be participating in the alpha can now check out beefed up heroes complete with new and overhauled abilities; try out the new quest system; locate and upgrade outposts in the game world; and experience a new tutorial system.
