Fortnite likely to feature Team Survival, weapon crafting, level system, bosses, more

Minecraft a "huge" inspiration.

Epic Games designer has been sharing vague details on Fortnite, Epic’s new ‘scavenge, build, and survive’ game announced at the Video Game Awards.

According to Perry, chances are “high” for weapon crafting, traps, a level system, underground exploration, boss fights, team survival mode, and rare loot.

Asked who’s heading up the project, Perry would only say, “Fortnite has been a CRAZY organic old school war-room of passionate devs… it’s like an indie group set up shop in the corner of the building.”

And, if it weren’t obvious, “Minecraft was an inspiration for sure,” he added.

Markus Persson should be happy.

On Sunday, the game was revealed to be a third-person, multiplayer experience.
