Epic Games‘ shootin’ and a craftin’ fortress building game is now accepting registrations for it’s alpha testing stage. Fortnite was revealed at the Spike VGA’s back in 2011 and was touted as a big new I.P for the company. All has been relatively quiet on the Fortnite front for a while now so it’s great to see that Epic are inviting players to get a taste of the game.
Some of the questions in the registration process are pretty interesting. While it starts out asking the usual bog standard name, address etc. information, it goes on to ask about gaming habits, hours spent playing popular games like GTA V or League of Legends and even wants to know how “hyped” you got for certain releases.
It seems like Epic are looking for a bit more than the usual beta signup. One would have to imagine that the company is using the alpha testing phase as an opportunity to gather additional market research. Either that, or their just really nosy.
There is no definitive date for the alpha and as yet, no release date for Fortnite.
