Fortnite alpha kicks off later today, runs for a fortnight

Oh how Epic laughed as it scheduled the "Fortnite Alpha Fortnight".


Fortnite will open its doors to testers from December 2 through December 19, according to an update to the game's website.

The alpha is designed to test "basic stuff", from the launcher through all game systems, but Epic Games warned that the co-operative crafting and combat affair is "still rough around the edges".

Invites started rolling out today, so check your spam folder and stay tuned for another round next week, as well as friend invites.

Here's a new trailer showing off Fortnite, which was announced almost exactly three years ago.

Thanks, AGB.
