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.
With the Gears of War series coming to an epic close, Epic Games’ Design Director, Cliff Bleszinski, has confirmed that the developer will unveil their next project at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. CliffyB was cagey, but it sounds like his team at Epic’s North Carolina headquarters will be launching a new property not connected to any of their existing franchises.
Quouth CliffyB: “We have something new in store for you. It’s an entirely fresh and new experience.”
The Spike TV Video Game Awards will air this Saturday, December 10, at 8 PM.
