The latest game from the makers of Fortnites is the first to come with an all-new cold-soul system that puts players on the defensive.
As the player approaches the Fortnitor, they are given a brief description of their surroundings, and they are then required to act in an aggressive manner, or they will be marked as “bad”, which in turn affects their game stats and gameplay.
The game, which is also coming to PC, is now available in its entirety for $39.99, making it the second-most expensive game on Steam at $30.24.
But, according to the Steam user reviews, the cold-skin system is one of the better features.
“The new Fortnition cold-shoeing system allows players to feel confident and ready to tackle the challenges of the Forts in the game,” the review by gamer Jochen Suesch wrote.
“Players will now feel more like they are in a physical space and are free to take more risks in order to survive.”
As well as being able to change the environment around them, players are also given the option to use weapons in their weapon racks to “prevent damage to the player”.
This means that players can “preemptively” kill enemies if they see them in their area.
This makes for some pretty intense combat in the online Fortnitors, which means that it’s up to you to determine if it’s worth it.
You can check out a video of the system in action below.
This system is part of an ongoing effort from Valve to bring Fortniting to PC.
According to Valve, this new system “will allow players to interact with their environment more, and will also allow them to experience more depth of gameplay.”
The new cold-skills system will be available in the FortNite beta on October 26.
