Fortnite - Hah, did you get it? It's because you gotta build fo--

The co-op mode is a lot of fun.

Hi folks I’d love to squad up for some Fortnite on PS4. My psn is muffinsyay.


#64

Gotta say, not a fan of the new music in the game. I really like the old song they had back in 2017.

Quick edit while I’m here. Here’s the original start screen music. I just like this much better than the kinda generic light cinematic music. This song had a very eerie otherworldly sci-fi feel that fit the world that Epic built for this game and the new music just kinda falls flat.


#65

I keep forgetting about mentioning this but there is a Fortnite role on the Official Waypoint Discord so that we can organize games.


#66

I’m sure most people here have seen this by now but the fact that you can get creative and ride a remote controlled rocket is just one of the most interesting fun things I’ve seen in a shooter as of late.


#67

That’s amazing. There’s another video where a person saves their teammate who is dying in the storm by rocket riding them back to them.

Having just played my first couple of matches of Fortnite: yes, it’s good. The controls are really smooth, the game is gorgeous, and the interface is far less clunky than PUBG’s, which is surprising because there’s a lot more to it. I can see why people who are still into battle royale games prefer this over PUBG.

But to me, the excitement of battle royale died once I got to #3 in one game and realized how easy it is to queue again and again start running around hoping not to get one-shot by a sniper. The moment-to-moment action in these games is kinda not really there, so the only thing that keeps playing is the tension, and it’s hard to maintain this tension in a game where every match just feels inconsequential.

And Fortnite, being a carbon copy of PUBG in terms of its basic gameplay, really doesn’t do anything to get me interested in the genre again.

i’ve never even had a remote-controlled rocket. :frowning:

Thoughts on Season 4 anyone?

I wont be able to play until tonight but I saw that Epic added the orange shirt kid’s #boogiedown dance that everyone wanted which is genuinely really cool.


#71

I played two rounds before work today and really enjoyed it. The crater and low-gravity crystals are super cool and it provides another focal point on the map to spread out the focus on Titled Towers. Also, I love the trailer that runs when you boot up the game. I might even get the Battle Pass this season, although since I jump between Xbox and PS4 it’s going to be a hard decision for which platform I put money on. Make cross-play a reality Sony!


#72

They uhh…

Hey, they removed the thing I liked about the game, which made me think I could actually get into it.

There’s no more 50 vs. 50 mode.


#73

i was really hoping the meteor would land on tilted towers. i hate that place. i like that the map has evolved a bit anyway.

looking through all of the unlockable stuff, i didn’t really see anything particularly neat. i was hoping for cooler skins to unlock in the paid progression - not seeing stuff down there that i’m excited to unlock means i probably won’t pay for the battle pass again this season… which might mean i’ll be stepping away from the game for a bit, as i don’t find it quite compelling enough to play regularly unless i’m tied on to the “do challenges to unlock stuff” ladder.

and i agree that 50v50 should be a permanent fixture, not a limited time bonus experience.


#74

Has anyone been playing the Infinity Gauntlet LTM? It’s interesting but I’m not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. It’s fun fighting Thanos and dealing with his mayhem, but it being a solo mode with a fast storm means I’m getting offed in the first few minutes half the time. I’m curious if there’s a way to make this into a squad mode.


#75

Yoooooooooooooo…


#76

Gonna download when I get home


#77

Anyone else see that Epic Games accounts tied to Playstation do not carry over to Switch but all others (iPhone, XBOX, PC, etc) do? That’s a real gross move on Sonys part for player retention.


#78

Yup, that’s been a thing when you try to sign into Xbox as well. I suppose a lot more people own the PS4/Switch combo than PS4/X1 (understandable), but hopefully the additional momentum will get Sony to budge.


#79

How did you like it on the tiny screen? I tried a game at work but the wifi really hurt.


#80

Compared to playing it on a big screen it’s not great, but I’ve played enough iOS Fortnite for it to feel like a big step up. It’s easily the best way to play on the go.


#81

Yeah, the whole Sony thing is fucking garbage. Cause I started playing Fortnite on the PS4 so my current account is locked in and I can’t access my stuff that I bought and unlocked over to the Switch.
