Spike TV VGAs: Epic does cute zombies with Fortnite

Are you sensing a theme? The dead continued to walk during this year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards as Epic Games debuted their latest project, Fortnite. Like Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, it too features a story about surviving the zombie menace.

But instead of the ultra-realism that Naughty Dog is going for, Epic chose to use a more stylized look. And instead of a horrific fight for survival, Fortnite encourages players to fortify their strongholds during the day in anticipation of the horde’s appearance at night. It’s like a video game version of Robert Neville’s ordeal in the early chapters of I Am Legend.

No release date or platforms were announced for Fortnite, but I’m guessing it’s more than 14 days away.
