The Future Is Yours....
With the way things are these days in gaming, I have to say I'm an advocate for Free To Play games. And, Fortnite is the king. I'm a very casual gamer. But, I'll tell you, Fortnite battle royale used to have me stressing trying to get my first solo win. Now, that I have a few wins under my belt, I play to relax. It's so fun to squad up with friends and have a good time. Want to get competitive and have a chance at competing with the pros for some money? Jump into Arena and compete to qualify. Want to chill and respawn without having to die and go back to the lobby? Play some Team Rumble or whatever mode the Fortnite team has created for the moment.
And, it's seriously Free To Play. You don't need to spend a dime to play. You don't have to buy anything. Even then, you'll still earn some cool stuff during the season. Fortnite will have some special events where you can get extra cool rewards.
As cheap as I am, I do recommend getting the season battle pass. It's 950 V-bucks which comes to $9.50 USD. It's well worth it with the rewards you have a chance to earn throughout the season. If you're just starting, you'll have a collection in your locker in no time.
In addition to this, Fortnite is cross-platform across PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac, and mobile. At no charge. So, if someone is using your PC. Or, another game is being played on your console, you can simply fire up Fortnite on another device and start where you left off. I love this feature. I want all games to have it.
I'm looking forward to the new season and all the new stuff and changes that will come with it. It has been awesome to see the evolution of this game.
