What is Fortnite - A Beginner's Guide

Fortnite offers its players many opportunities. Land on an island and compete to be the strongest player - or team. Have fun with your friends, watch movies and concerts together. Create your own world with its own rules. Or join Storm and battle hordes of monsters in battle.

Game Modes

There are a total of four main game modes in Fortnite, among which each player can choose the one that suits him best. What are these modes? "Battle Royale," "Royal Party," "Creative Mode," and "Battle Storm.

Battle Royale

"Battle Royale" Fortnite is available on consoles, PCs and mobile devices, and this mode is completely free to play! Here, the last survivor wins. So jump out of the battle bus, head down to the island, and try to last longer than the other players. Or team up with your friends or random players and try to beat the other teams. And don't forget to build structures - wood, bricks and metal will help you with that.

"Battle Royale" Fortnite is constantly evolving, and there is always something new waiting for you in this mode: items, weapons, vehicles, side modes, special events and seasons. Each season has a specific theme that sets the tone for everything that happens on the island - like the recent "spy games" or the flood.

The King's Party

"Royal Party" is a mode within Battle Royale. "Royal Party" is a brand new, ever-changing space. Here you don't have to fight, you don't have to care about anything at all - you can just relax and have a good time. Among the attractions are an aerial obstacle course, boat races, movies and even concerts by stars of the music scene!

In addition, like all of the modes that make up Battle Royale, King's Party is available to everyone for free.

Creative Mode

Creative Mode is an addition to the free Battle Royale and allows you to create your own island - with your own games and rules - and invite your friends over! In Creative Mode, you have all the tools you need to create games of any complexity. Decide what you want to create and go ahead. You'll also get to play games created by your friends and members of the Fortnite community.

But creating games and participating in them isn't everything. You can also create your own decorations in creative mode. Decorate the island the way you want and enjoy it with your friends!

Battle the Storm

In Battle of the Storm you will have to explore a huge destructible world and fight off hordes of monsters together with other players. As you battle these monsters, the brainiacs, you'll gradually grow stronger as you collect loot, build weapons, and expand your collection of heroes. Build a base, fortify it with traps, and hold off the onslaught of brainiacs!

Battle of Storms is playable with friends and other members of the Fortnite community. You can access Battle of Storms by purchasing the Battle of Storms bundle from the official website, Fortnite, or your console store. Battle of the Storm mode is available on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
