Epic Games has a series of Fortnite Alpha invites heading out the doors and into email boxes, did you get one?
Starting yesterday and ongoing for the rest of this week, invites for the Alpha test for Epic’s Fortnite are headed to gamers who’ve signed up for the testing phase for the base-building, monster-shooting title. didn’t get in on the test? You’ve still got a chance to play early. Epic says that each invite includes two additional invites, that the gamer who received them can dole out at his or her fancy. So if you know someone who’s in already, you might want to start begin nice to them now and get yourself some play-time too.
The first stage of the Alpha, officially called Online Test No. 1, will be testing the large-scle environments that the game’s levels will take place in, as well as some of the mechanics like stuff from “sign-ups and patching, to gameplay.” You can expect to be able to play (if you got an invite) from December 2nd (yesterday) through to the 19th of this month. So you’ll gave a good long time to see what this one’s all about and perfect your base-building techniques before the next phase begins.
Expect to see lots more on this one before the game officially hits retail some time in 2015.
