What’s New in Fortnite
Fortnite is just one of several hyper casual games that are trending and will likely continue to trend in years to come.
If you aren’t familiar with hyper casual games, they’re defined by their high accessibility and low time commitment.
This means there’s no time investment: Pick up a game, play for a few minutes, put it down when you get tired—and pick it back up later for more fun.
And if Fortnite is in some way reminiscent of Minecraft, there’s good reason for that.
Game creator Epic Games is behind both phenomena.
The company made its name creating Unreal Engine, which has been used to create everything from AAA blockbusters like Gears of War 4 to indie hits like Cuphead.
It was only natural that Epic would eventually try its hand at developing its own blockbuster franchise.
The result was Fortnite Battle Royale, which mixes elements from survival and first-person shooters with sandbox building mechanics.
The end result is a unique experience where players build structures as much as they blast each other apart (though shooting remains an option).
Like many other mobile games, Fortnite doesn’t require any upfront cost but does offer optional microtransactions.
Players can spend real money on virtual currency called V-Bucks;
those V-Bucks can then be spent on cosmetic items or customizations for your character or weapons.

The Power-Ups of Apex Legends: Like other Battle Royale games,

The Legend of Zelda (Part 3)
You might have thought The Legend of Zelda came to a close when Link completed his quest in 1998’s Ocarina of Time.
However, thanks to 2013’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for Nintendo 3DS, fans were given a much-appreciated sequel.
While it kept its predecessor’s classic top-down perspective,
A Link Between Worlds gives players a 3D world (something that was previously saved for handheld systems) and breaks away from dungeons in favor of more exploration and fewer setpieces.
The addition may have been controversial among some hardcore fans,
but others appreciated how it gave them an excuse to explore Hyrule in new ways.
