It has been a few months since the corona virus pandemic broke out and everyone has been confined to their homes and cannot move out except to get the essentials like groceries, ration and other important items that are needed by the family.
As such, people are reliving their childhood by watching old films and serials on television and playing video games that have become an indelible part of their growing up and many have also posted their videos on social media saying that it has made them go teary eyed with nostalgia.
One of the many games that immediately come to mind is Fortnite that is both interesting and intriguing at the same time due to it being so adventurous, thrilling, mind boggling and so many other adjectives can be added along to it.
So we are going to begin the article with a little description of Fortnite because most people have either forgotten or have never heard of it, which is a crying shame that it is not considered in the same league as super Mario, Contra, Swat Kats and other action adventure games.
Fortnite was only launched in 2017 which means that you cannot have played it in your childhood and most people born at the time of its release are still toddlers but that does not take away the entertainment part of the game as it is still an experience of a lifetime.
An online video game format is the call for the day as most of the films are released on OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime these days and are far more successful ventures than movies released on the big screen.
A product of Epic Games, Fortnite is involves two or more players and can be divided into 3 parts:
- Fortnite: Save the World
- Fortnite Battle Royale
- Fortnite Creative
For now, we shall focus on Chapter 2 as that is the most interesting part of the three which involves a spine chilling adventure that you have never seen before and most likely are not going to see it again.
The basic premise is simple: there are 100 players that skydive from a plane and onto an island that seems inhabited at first glance but that is where the mission begins where you have to defend yourselves and the entire cavalry by engaging in combat with the other players lying in wait.
An interesting aspect is that unlike the other two levels, you get to choose your own set whether you want to play singles or with a team and both sides have 100 combatants each where you wait for the signal to proceed.
You just need to run and dance around the island with some of the players and make merry and finally get down to harvesting and wait for the cue to proceed but keep in mind that whatever you accumulate for the quest will not prove to be of any help.
People who are new to the game have problems to proceed and so we are going to discuss some interesting points on how to do so:
- The first step is to download Fortnite from a good website and it is free of cost
- It is a Battle Royale that is similar to today’s item shop fortnite where each player has 100 health points each that can be increased with each healing item that is discovered on the island
- Just practice the controls on your smartphone and keyboard and proceed to shoot at the target the moment you spot him
- The healing items are concealed so use your skills to discover and lead them away from the enemy camp
