Gearbox Publishing Chooses Koch Media for Broad Distribution Cooperation

Fortnite hitting stores on 21. July 2017

Gearbox Publishing and Koch Media have teamed up to bring the long-awaited Fortnite to European and PAL retail markets. Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, the game hits stores on July 21, 2017. Buyers of the retail version will receive the Founder’s Pack of loot, weapons, and heroes as well as a four-day head start in playing Epic Games’ Action Building game ahead of its July 25, 2017 digital release.

Don’t Take Shelter, Make It
Developed by Epic Games, the only company smart enough to attach chainsaws to guns, Fortnite is the Action Building game powered by Unreal Engine 4. Fortnite allows hardcore shooter fans, master treehouse builders, and katana-slicing ninjas to play in the same, beautifully-realized world for hundreds of hours. The forecast for the world of Fortnite calls for storms of new threats and the means to fight them every few weeks.

Key Features

  • Hero Complex
    Recruit and train commandos, ninjas, constructors, and outlanders to take on the monster hordes. For your most dangerous missions, assign your biggest badasses to Hero Squads and take back Earth together.
  • Design and Conquer
    The revolutionary building system allows you to create extravagant forts while juggling frenetic combat. Lure the monsters into devastating traps that use poison darts, metal spikes, and sentry guns–but build wisely. The monster hordes can smell design flaws like fresh meat.
  • Master the Craft
    Use scavenged resources to craft ridiculous weapons like homemade sniper rifles, hydraulic mining axes, and launch pads that send monsters flying. As you move your heroes up the skill tree, unlock schematics for even wilder weapons of DIY destruction.
  • Make Friends
    With seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op play and procedurally designed maps, Fortnite is fun for shooters, builders, explorers, and ninjas alike.
