TIL Fortnite is a completely free game

It's not even pay-to-win. All the micro-transactions, every single one of them, revolve around aesthetic elements, like how your character looks or what dance moves they can do. But you can download Fornite right now to PS4 and find out what all the fuss is about, and not be at any gameplay disadvantage. Ever.

Personally, I found it rather obnoxious and couldn't figure out how to mute all the cursing teenage boys, but that's that.

Im not one to usually downvote .. and this post and @rkt1337 ' reply made me laugh... but the ultimate thing that pushed me to downvote is because OP is suggesting people download on ps4... Just warning if you plan to play the game on a Nintendo switch dont ever connect your account with a PS4.. Once you play the game on the PS4 Sony makes your account exclusive to the PS4 and then you cant play it elsewhere...

Nintendo, Microsoft, PC etc. they all interoperate.. but SONY has some restrictions in place which as POed alot of people..

You know, every time I think I've found myself one little corner of the internet that's free of a**h**es, I'm inevitably disappointed. Guess it serves me right for offering a friendly tip to fellow gamers.

This isn’t Reddit.
even then a post this bad wouldn't get any visibility on Reddit to begin with

I'm sure you meant well but you're just posting common knowledge about one of the most popular games on the planet without offering any new information. All you had to do was type "Fortnite" in the search bar here to see there are already dozens of posts and threads about this game including a 2 page thread specifically for PS4 players.

Sounds like your brain cant cope with all whats needed to win at fortnite, easier to say "it sucks, its for kids"

pubg is a slow and much easier game to be half decent at but yeah.. the lowly human way of deferring failure is to make fun of something.. so good job.

Well the game made 1 billion in those micro transactions. So the suckers are buying all the crap.
