Oops, it looks like for a brief few hours PS4 and Xbox One cross-play was available in Fortnite. Now, Fortnite developer Epic Games says that feature was actually a bug, which the studio is referring to as a “configuration issue” that it says it has fixed.
Epic Games’ Fortnite, out in Early Access, is not one game, but many, all tangled together under one name. It’s a resource management game. It’s a multiplayer third-person shooter. It’s a tower defense game. It’s a collectable card game. It’s a strategy game, a survival game and it’s even a little bit of a…
Developer Epic Games issued an apology this morning after several fans of Fortnite, a surprisingly cute player vs. environment game about surviving the apocalypse, were caught off guard when their labored-after bases disappeared. The unannounced change was a part of an early morning patch for the Early Access game.
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.
Today Epic released an Unreal Engine video showing off features game developers will be excited about in 2017, like sequencer cinematic tools and automatic level-of-detail generation. If you are not a developer, feel free to just dance.
Epic recently revealed Shinbi, a new Hero for its online multiplayer title Paragon. The character’s design choice has been controversial with a portion of fans saying they dig it, while others are not exactly thrilled.
Multiplayer arena game Paragon has been in a weird place since it debuted last year. Harnessing the full power of the Unreal Engine, it looked like an action game, but played like a slow and plodding MOBA. Today’s Monolith update speeds things up a great deal.
If you play video games, you’ve got Tim Sweeney—co-founder of Epic Games—to thank for everything from the Unreal Engine to Gears of War. If you live in North Carolina, though, you can thank him for something a bit more substantive.
The latest hero to join the roster of Epic Games’ PC and PS4 MOBA is Rayne, hero of vampire hack and slash action series BloodRayne, only here they call her The Countess and she has mostly black hair.
Here’s our first look at Robo Recall, a virtual reality robot shooter built for Oculus Touch that Epic Games will be releasing for free in early 2017. It’s pretty shiny.
To be fair, I’m not 100 percent positive that The Fey, joining Epic Games’ action MOBA today to battle against laser commandos, bunnies in mech suits, killer robots and mutant beasts, is an actual princess. I am completely positive she seems a little out of place.
Epic Games probably wants you to call him Khaimera. That’s fine. Skull-Face McMoonhead launches today in Paragon’s paid-beta, dual-wielding axes and rocking that hoodie-covered skinless monster head look all the kids are into these days.
Having to purchase a special founder’s pack to gain exclusive beta access and special content for a free-to-play game like Paragon is quickly becoming the norm. Releasing a $60 physical copy of a free-to-play downloadable game that scores players the same sort of benefits is a bit odd.
Paragon looks like a shooter. The characters, the map, the weapons, all designed by a company known for its shooters. But it’s not a shooter, and getting over that fact was my biggest hurdle in beginning to enjoy Epic Games’ latest.
Epic Games’ MOBA, Paragon, is launching in Early Access on March 18, via Founder’s Packs available starting at $20. The packs, according to the Reddit announcement, each grant access to the game and include cash shop items like skins and boosts. Nathan’s got a few hours’ worth of impressions from the game’s alpha.
Muhammad Zakir Khan wanted to check out the beta for the MOBA-inspired Paragon from Epic Games, but when he tried to register an account, he was blocked because his name was apparently on the US government’s “Specially Designated Nationals list.” It’s been fixed, but the hell happened?
Forget in-house tech! Square Enix is having Final Fantasy VII Remake made with the Unreal Engine 4. So, there you go. Unreal Engine 4. Square Enix. FFVII.
Today, a company called Epic Games announced a video game called Paragon, and it might take some serious investigative reporting to figure out what it actually is. Let’s see if we’re up to the task.
As a series, Gears of War likely has the best weapons in any shooter, period. Many of these weapons are surprisingly creative—a chainsaw on an assault rifle?!—and nearly all of them feel great to use.
