I'm kinda upset they ditched character creation, but they seem to have a good amount of characters I like the look of.

I'm glad it's on console, though I hope there is some drop in elements for the team portion.

Looks fun overall.

Is it more than just a random assortment of levels now where you just build a small fort and try survive or has it become something larger where building a fort of that size in the trailer makes sense? I remember the original pitch was to explore for gear by day and defend by night but that wasn't the case when I played the beta.

Sorry guys, I don't see this being a success.

I dunno, Minecraft did pretty ok.

What? Kids love building shit. The ea prices are crazy but it should be fine once it's free.

Part of me was certain this was never coming. I'm not loving the idea it is F2P, but if the progression isn't too slow that's fine. Progression is a good thing, glacial progression to make you keep reaching for your credit card kind of sucks. Though, I love building shit in games, and I enjoy tower defense and TD type things. Probably the most hyped I've been for a game in a long time, pretty stoked we're only about 6 weeks out.

Looks fun, I think it will succeed largely on how long each of the 'matches' (what constitutes a match?) are and how quickly you can jump into a 'match' (e.g, Overwatch and PubG). Ex, if your teammates are crap, how long do 'round's' last, etc.,

Damn, life is strange. I thought about this game last night while laying in bed and thought to myself how Epic had made a mistake in choosing this as property to be the Trojan Horse/Flagship/Poster Child for UE4 but I can confidently say that I was wrong. This game looks absolutely amazing and I regret writing it off so readily. Definitely a day-1 purchase for me. It looks like it'll scratch that Counter Strike Source Zombie Mod itch I've had for nearly a decade.

EDIT: This one may have been obvious, but I'm digging that nod' to Glenn with the Outlander player type. Pretty cool.

This does look interesting (some shades of Sunset for sure). I'll be checking out the console versions to see how they run. I'm also curious how fun the loot/grind will be (if it has enough staying power to be fun at all).

I'm curious about this myself. Wondering how long the matches will take and how well you can fare playing alone.

Nah. It's perfectly fine to attempt comparisons to give folks anchors in their understanding. I can give detailed written explanations of mechanics and many will still have an easier time understanding where a game is coming from with a comparison. This is also why developers and marketers use them.

It's odd that some believe comparison denigrates a work. Trust me, devs would rather a game sell.

This game wasn't on my radar before, but the e3 trailer got me interested.

I'm glad they decided to go the lighthearted cartoon route, the market is oversaturated with grim bloody survival zombie games already, so this game would not have stood out at all if they did that.

After looking at this trailer, I might be down for this.

Usually anything involving tower defense is an automatic "pass" from me, but this looks somewhere between regular TD game and Gears 3 horde (with a bit of Gears 4's class system). I don't like just clicking on forts and just watching them defend themselves from enemies but the concept suddenly becomes more interesting to me if I can take an active part.

Looks like I'd almost exclusively play soldier.

Literally thought this game came out six years ago until a thread a few months ago reminded me it never released.

Edit: The trailer looked a little Left 4 Generic. I hope they still emphasize the base-building elements.

Early access and will become f2p?

Man the trailer is awesome but I thought it would be a fully finished game.

F2P means a fuckload of grinding or annoying microtransactions too.

I'm out.

Interesting game ruined by awful business model.

Sorry for double post, but holy fuck look at this: https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/pre-order

Everything that is wrong with gaming on one page. I really loved the trailer but this just screams "WE WANT TO MILK YOU DRY" and will be a game that is more focused on getting money out of you rather than providing an awesome gaming experience.

When will these awful trends die?!

I've been in the alpha for a long time and it's always updating but I haven't gone back to it in a long time. I'm not sure how much it's improved, I did like the little I played, the gameplay was fun to me.
The structure if the game was all I was unsure about. I gotta try it again

What if you were buying a fully finished game with all the content there, without needing to pay more for it or grind for hours to unlock it?

30 is the ceiling for me with most games. I might stretch to 35 if people on my friends list are playing it most evenings. But this isn't on Steam so it makes that slightly less appealing.
