What’s the synopsis of Fortnite?
“A cooperative shooter-survival game for up to four players to fight off zombie-like husks, defend objects with fortifications you can build, and a battle royale mode where up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing. A mysterious island that holds the Origin of the universe itself is being abused by a mysterious organization. A mysterious figure emerges from an escape pod housed in the remnants of a meteor in the crater of the island. From there on, everything slowly unfolds into chaos.”
When players enter Fortnite the game, they receive an introduction to the background of the game generally as a short cutscene that explains how the season is currently playing. While the main focus of Fortnite is the elimination of battle royale players also complete tasks on their island that are connected to the larger storyline and assist in the development of the game. For those who are new to the game, the whole history of the game is often confusing and difficult to comprehend.
