WHAT EXACTLY IS FORTNITE? A GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS
Fortnite is a place where you can have a variety of different experiences. Drop into the Island and compete to see who can be the last person — or team — standing. See a concert or a movie with your parents. Make your own world with your own set of rules. Alternatively, you can save the world by teaming up with others to take out armies of monsters.
GAME MODES IN FORTNITE
Fortnite has four main game modes, each of which caters to a different type of player. Battle Royale, Party Royale Poker, Creative, and Save the World are the four game modes.
Fortnite Battle Royale is free to download and play on consoles, PC, and handheld devices. Take the Fight Bus to the Island below and compete to be the last person standing. Alternatively, form a team of mates or other players to outlast the competition. Use the strength of wood, stone, and metal to build structures to aid you.
In Fortnite Battle Royale, there’s always something new to look forward to, such as new objects, guns, cars, submodes, special events, and “Seasons.” Each new Season introduces a new theme to the Island, such as the previous secret agent takeover and massive flood.
Inside Battle Royale, there is a mode called Party Royale. Party Royale is an experimental and emerging space that focuses on no sweat, all chill fun rather than combat and Dota. Aerial obstacle courses, boat races, movies, and even live concerts by top musicians are among the attractions.
Party Royale is also free, much like the rest of Battle Royale’s modes.
Fortnite is a free game that comes with Battle Royale. Create your own games and rules… and invite your mates! Creative puts you in charge of your own Island. Creative provides you with the tools to build both simple and complex games, so make whatever you want. And when you’re not creating, play games created by your friends or other Fortnite players.
Aside from making and playing games, Creative is a fantastic place to simply create your own scenery. Make your island look the way you want it to and have fun with your mates!
SAVE THE PLANET
Explore a massive, destructible universe as you and other players work together to fend off hordes of monsters in Fortnite Save the World. Gain strength in your battle against these monsters, known as Husks, by collecting loot, forging weapons, and expanding your Heroes list. To hold the Husks at bay, build a base and fortify it with traps!
Play Save the World with your mates or other Fortnite players. Save the World can be accessed by buying a Save the World Pack, which can be found on our website, inside Fortnite, CSGO Bet or on the storefront of your console. Save the World is a video game that can be played on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
CROSSPLAY WITH THE FORTNITE COMMUNITY’S MILLIONS OF PLAYERS

WHEN IT COMES TO FORTNITE, WHAT Do PARENTS KNOW?
Parental controls, such as options for contact, privacy, and playtime monitoring, are available to help you handle your family member’s Fortnite experience. You can also set up parental controls for in-game purchases on your family member’s gaming site and/or epicgames.com. Learn more in our guide to parental controls. You can determine if Fortnite is suitable for your family by looking at the ratings on the Epic Games Store page for the game.
Our mission is to keep the Epic Games ecosystem fun and clean, which is why we have Community Rules and Content Guidelines for content sharing, which we provide and implement.
Fortnite is a perfect game for parents and their children to play together, whether or not parental controls are activated. Even those who have never played Fortnite before will enjoy it thanks to its vast mobile compatibility, diverse game modes, and ability to link people who are geographically separated.
