A virtual reality game where you fight to the death in a virtual arena has been taking the world by storm.
But there are still plenty of challenges ahead for the game’s developer.
In the last year, Fortnites has grown to be the biggest multiplayer VR game on the market, with more than a million players online.
Now, the developer is looking to get its game into the hands of more people, which it says it will soon with the launch of a new VR app.
“We are very excited about this, because we think that it will be really beneficial for our community,” said Mike Gersh, president of the VR studio Insomniacs.
The Fortnited Tournament of Heroes, or Fortnit for short, was first released in 2015.
The game takes place in an arena that is a virtual reality version of the arena at the 2017 Rio Olympics.
In the virtual arena, players compete in a series of games.
Gersh said the VR app, called Fortniting, is a “big step” in the VR space, because it lets people experience the experience without a headset.
“It’s kind of like a game that has a bunch of players on it, but it’s actually in front of you,” he said.
“You can sit there and play with people in front and back of you.
So it really helps to get in front.
It’s an interactive experience, it’s really fun, and it’s got a lot of stuff that we want to do with it.”
Gershar said he’s hoping to be able to open up the app for more people by the end of the year.
“When we get into the early stages, we’ll be really happy to open it up for more users,” he explained.
“We are really excited to see how it goes.”
Germain Deboeuf, a VR designer with the studio who has been working with the team on the app, said the app is still in early development.
“I can’t really talk about it right now because we’re in the process of putting it together,” he told CBC News.
“So I can’t talk about the details of it.”
While the app will be available to people around the world, Gershar did confirm that Fortnits game is only available in Brazil.
In an email to CBC News, the studio confirmed that it is currently in the middle of a global rollout, but didn’t have any details about the time frame.
“Our focus is on launching the Fortnight event, where you can compete against people all around the globe in Fortnito, and we’re also launching the Battle Royale and Fortnitor event,” he wrote.
“It’s going to be an awesome experience for the whole community, and you’ll see a ton of amazing content in there.”
In addition to Fortniti, the game will also be available on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR.
Geesh says that Fortnight will also include a new way for people to play online.
“The online mode is the most exciting thing,” he added.
“There’s so many different ways for people who don’t know each other to compete.
It’ll be an entirely new way to compete.”
The game will have three levels of challenges.
At the beginning of each stage, players will face a boss fight.
Once the player beats the boss, they will be awarded a Fortnight prize.
“This is the first time that the world will be able play Fortnights together on the same platform,” said Gershe.
“That’s the main reason why we’re making this app.”
The company is also working on an in-game mode called Fortnight Arena, which will give players the opportunity to fight for Fortnitors.
The game is currently available to download on the Oculus Store and in the HTC Vive.
