Epic opens up alpha registration for Fortnite

First proper details on Epic's new game incoming

Epic Games has opened up registration for an alpha test of their upcoming online shooter Fortnite.

All has been quiet on the Unreal Engine 4 based third-person shooter since Epic first announced it with a short trailer during the 2011 VGAs. It is known that the game will combine elements of Valve's Team Fortress and Minecraft to offer players an entertaining new experience.

Epic's Wes Philips wrote on the Fortnite website, “A little over two years ago we introduced Fortnite via a short trailer at the VGAs. Since then, we’ve been quietly working to make sure Fortnite is a great experience for players. We appreciate all of the interest and questions during that time and have been anxious to tell you more about our plans.” Epic opens up alpha registration for Fortnite
