Epic Games is best known for its "Unreal Tournament" and "Gears of War" franchises. The independent development studio is working on a brand new free-to-play game, "Fortnite," which pits teams of four players against invading monsters. The gameplay experience is a blend of building fortresses through scavenging the surrounding area, and then the combat that ensues when storms usher in attacking monsters who are out to destroy players and their stronghold. "Fortnite" lead designer Darren Sugg talks about the new PC game in this exclusive interview.
