Fortnite Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

Fortnite Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

Without a doubt, Epic Games and People Can Fly’s multiplayer survival sandbox title Fortnite has become a gaming sensation, as the game has managed to garner upwards of 20 million users while smashing concurrent player records of competitors such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Considering its popularity, the fine folks over at Smosh Games have decided to set their targets on the title by giving it the Honest Game Trailer treatment.

As seen below in Fortnite‘s Honest Game Trailer, Smosh starts out with its explanation regarding how the title from Epic Games and People Can Fly “took the Internet by storm by mashing together 3 things gamers love: Minecraft, PUBG, and blatant ripoffs.” The footage then goes on to break down Fortnite‘s Save the World mode in silly and meticulous detail, until the narrator admits, “Who are we kidding? We’re not playing this mode.”

The rest of Smosh Games’ Honest Trailer for Fortnite essentially tackles the title’s Battle Royale mode, detailing how its building feature sets it apart from competitors by letting players “construct elaborate towers at Amish speeds” to survive enemy onslaughts. The narrator also makes a salient point in regards to Fortnite Battle Royale’s popularity, stating, “Whether you like Fortnite‘s Hunger Games meets Rust gameplay more than PUBG or not, it’s hard to beat a price tag of $0.”

All things considered, Fortnite‘s Honest Trailer does a fine job of summarizing the title’s contents and the culture surrounding the game by tying it all together with a humorous thread throughout, and caps it all off with hilarious descriptions of the players that we’ve all seen before in a Battle Royale match. So, whether it’s “The Total Noob” or “The Guy Who Shoots You First Every Time”, it’s safe to say that these and other kinds of players will be encountered at a steady frequency by the title’s growing fan base, as Epic Games continues to incorporate fresh content such as Fortnite Battle Royale’s recent addition of the limited time Solid Gold mode.

Fortnite is available now in early access for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
