Epic Games' Fortnite combines first-person shooting, base building, and tower defense. The title has been in a closed alpha state for months now, but no official release date has been announced.
In May 2014, Epic Games announced a new Unreal Tournament game was in development. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, the title will be free to players. The studio has stressed that it is not free-to-play, but will be supported by an in-game marketplace where users can create and sell content.
