Fortnite will receive a closed beta in early 2013, according to producer Tanya Jessing.

Speaking with Joystiq at PAX after a panel on the game, Jessing confirmed there would “definitely be a closed beta,” but declined further comment when asked whether an open beta was also in the cards.

One lucky panel attendee was handed a key for early access to the tester.

Fortnite will be the first Unreal Engine 4 game to be released by Epic, and for the time being, it’s a PC-only title.

However, Epic’s Cliff Bleszinski has previously stated that may not always be the case as other platforms were “a possibility.”
