Fortnite trailer proves game still exists

Sit right down here, little Sally. Let me tell you a tale. Many, many years ago, somewhere in the forgotten times of 2011, Epic Games announced a title called Fortnite. Yes, it's been a long time. Empires have risen, fallen, risen again and fallen for real-reals in that time.

The game will involve friends working together to create forts, harvest resources and survive waves of enemies. You can sign up for the alpha at the game's official site, with more players expected to be let in in 2015. Fortnite is finally preparing for its primetime debut, so check out a gameplay trailer after the break to see where it's heading. Now, let grandpa sleep a spell.
