Epic announces Fortnite

Colourful zombie title debuts at VGAs.

Epic has announced brand new IP Fortnite.

A brief gameplay-free trailer for the game showed characters gathering up trash and scrap metal and taking it back to their HQ. Then night falls and a horde of zombies appear, prompting them to pull the gates shut.

It was a colourful, cartoony clip - far removed from Gears of War.

"You'll explore, you'll scavenge, you'll build, you'll survive," said Epic's Cliff Bleszinski as he introduced it.

No word on platforms, release date or even genre. We'll have the clip as soon as it's made public.
