VGA premiere: Epic Games shows off Fortnite

Epic Games unveiled a new game called Fornite this evening at the Spike TV Video Game Awards.

Cliff “CliffyB” Blezsinski came on stage to show off the title, which he said was a lot more humorous than any of Epic’s previous titles like the just released Gears of War 3.

The trailer shows a videocam view of a cartoon-like 3D animated world with funny characters who sneak out in the night, blow something up, scavenge some good stuff, and then retreat into a kind of urban compound.

Only there’s a malfunction in closing the gate and the funny monsters coming after them show up at the gates. And one of the characters says, “Oh, no.” Just then the webcam goes dark.
