Fortnite Battle Royale: A Free HD Game from Epic Games

By Howard Berenbon

For generations, computer gaming has been the rage. They've evolved over the years from text games with the early computers, to gaming machines like the Nintendo, and now via high definition high resolution 3D gaming boxes for full reality play. Of course you need a game machine like a Microsoft X-Box, or other popular machines to get the most out of your game play. Also, if you have a gaming PC, a specialized computer with a separte gaming video card, a super high resolution monitor and fast processor, you've got what you need. I recently purchased one of those gaming PCs, a Cybertron, with fast everything, in a tower format just to play and record game play for my Youtube channel, Cyber Times LLC (please subscribe!).

Games People Play

I just purchased a few of the popular games like Grand Theft Auto V, Rainbow Six Siege and Fallout 4 and I'm just getting into them. But last week I discovered a free HD game that is now the real rage called Fortnite Battle Royale from Epic Games. It turns out that it's by far the most popular first person multi-player online game made to date, and Epic Games just made it free. And, I've been playing it, and I admit it's fun and a little addictive. In fact, recently a Red Sox pitcher, David Price, had to sit out a game against the New York Yankees because of a carpal tunnel syndrome hand injury he had from playing Fortnite.

Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite is available for most game platforms including the PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox, and even mobile for the iPhone (soon to be available for Android). After the free download from Epic Games and a short installation (about 15 or 20 minutes), I was ready to compete. The premise is that you and 99 other players parachute onto an island populated with hills, lakes and buildings where you'll find various tools and weapons for your defense. You are also assigned team members and you can work together. The catch is that a storm is brewing on the island and as minutes pass the safe area shrinks. Besides being attacked by other players, if you're caught in the storm, you'll die.

Gameplay Videos

Here are some short videos of my first attempt at Fortnite. One video shows several ways to lose (die). I am working on it, and plan to compete on an even level with other more experienced Fortnite gamers. Wish me luck!
