Fortnite, a building survival game developed by the folks at Epic Games, will enter Early Access on July 25, the publisher said today. It was announced on December 10, 2011, so it only makes sense that it’d enter Early Access now.

Fortnite, perhaps best described as a cross between Minecraft and Left 4 Dead, has undoubtedly gone through some development struggles over the past six years.
