'Fortnite' is an online multiplayer survival game that sees players team up to try and defend objectives by building fortifications around them whilst also killing creatures who show up to attack them.

There is also a Battle Royale mode which sees players fighting against each other in a battle to the death. You can get up to 100 players in one game and either go it alone or be part of a four-person team. Thinking about downloading it yet?

You can purchase 'Fortnite' on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, whilst you'll also need an internet connection to join other players in the game.

You can play cross-platform too, so you don't have to worry if you and your mates don't have the same console!

The standard 'Fortnite' game retails at around £34.99 in the UK, whilst the Battle Royal stand-alone version is free.
