In case you didn’t know, Epic Games’ Fortnite is making its way to the PlayStation 4 and its bringing a few console-exclusive goodies with it.

PlayStation 4 gamers who buy a Founder’s Pack for Fortnite will receive two bonus hero cards, and these exclusive hero cards will only be available for PS4 players, and the characters will even support unique color schemes that shout “Sony PlayStation” through and through.

Called an “action building” game by Epic Games, the PlayStation Blog ran a good look at Fortnite that talks about the gameplay, ideology behind the game and more.  Check out a few choice excerpts below.

The Game

The world of Fortnite is expansive and uses a hybrid of procedural generation with sculpted “puzzle pieces” to create interesting play spaces to explore. Almost anything can be harvested for loot and materials, and used for for crafting. Build the equipment you need, when you need it. Knowing when to spend your hard-earned resources is part of the strategy of mastering the world of Fortnite.

Players collect hero cards drawn from a pool of four core classes:

  • Outlanders: Explorer class
  • Soldiers: Ranged weapon masters
  • Ninjas: Melee and mobility experts
  • Constructors: Masters of buffing forts

These classes gives players certain edges in the fight to retake the world from the monsters. A well-balanced team can nearly always save the day, but mix-and-match different specialties to find all new effective combinations. Combat is fast and chaotic in Fortnite, with a diverse groups of monsters, trying to overwhelm you with hordes of Husks, or even flinging themselves onto the roof of your fortress in an attempt to burrow from above. You’ll have to utilize all the tools in your toolbox to be successful at the top end of gameplay in Fortnite.

Fortnite will be available via paid Early Access this July 25, with Epic Games aiming to make it into a free-to-play title sometime in 2018.
