'Fortnite' (ALL) Kicks Off Early Access For Founders

by Rainier on July 21, 2017 @ 5:06 p.m. PDT

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.” Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Heya folks!

The day is finally here, if you are a Founder or have received a Founder’s Pack invite through a friend you can hop in and play right now! Prepare your squad, sketch out those last-minute fort concepts and load into Fortnite.

Here are some helpful resources as we roll into Early Access:

Where can find answers to (some of) my questions?  You can check out the FAQ!

Still have questions?

Reach out to us on Discord, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter or Forums with your inquiry and we can assist you!

We released two blogs in the past week detailing our NDA Lift as well as the Founder’s Event that began yesterday (July 20) with our Early Access update! 

But what about my Founder’s rewards? You will be able to claim these after completing the Stonewood Storm Shield Defense 1 mission and the Llama mission. Once you have completed your Loot Llama mission you will receive your Founder’s Pack rewards, based on the level of Founder’s Pack you purchased! If you have a choice of Heroes, you will also be prompted to make that decision upon receiving the Founder’s Rewards.

Trying to upgrade?

Launch Fortnite and skip over to the Store menu where you will have multiple options to upgrade your Founder’s Pack. Here is an example of the Standard Founder’s Pack:

  • Upgrade - Standard to Deluxe 
    • Grants all the additional items in the Deluxe Founder’s Pack.
  • Upgrade - Standard to Super Deluxe
    • Grants all of the additional items that are in the Deluxe and Super Deluxe Founder’s Packs.
  • Upgrade - Standard to Limited 
    • Grants all the additional items that are in the Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder’s Packs.

Friend invites?

What special bonuses do I get for purchasing on PlayStation 4?

You get four exclusive hero cards all dressed up in their PlayStation colors! This includes one ninja, one soldier, one outlander and one constructor. You can use these cards to play directly, or use them to bolster your active hero squad. Check out the video at the top of this post to see them in action!

Fortnite will be available in paid Early Access for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac starting on July 25.
