FortCraft [NetEase]

It was only a matter of time I suppose.

http://www.fortcraft.com/m/index.html to sign up for TestFlight. Looks like a guaranteed acceptance kind of deal.

Iíll report back later when I get the chance to try it but in the meantime letís hear some impressions.

Is anyone able to sign up for the beta? When I try to put my e-mail in and click submit nothing happens.

I (obviously) didnít run into a problem. Got the invite mail after 5 mins or so.
Maybe itís busy with people signing up? The Fortnite signup had a bit of trouble so maybe itís similar here.

Had one game so far. One big, long, lonely game. I encountered 2 people in total. I killed them both and won. There were apparently 100 in the match so I guess the land area is big.

The cartoon aesthetic is clean and sparse meaning thereís little chance to hide; add this to the lack of prone and it means that you donít want to be the one caught in the open.

Movement and gunplay will be familiar to RoS players as itís clearly the same engine. 3D Touch to fire makes a very welcome return as well.

I canít speak for the building aspects as I didnít really do much. Iíve not really played Fortnite so Iím not sure how it measures up in this respect either.

Overall itís too early for me to say but Iím hopeful as I do enjoy RoS. That said, the open nature makes it feel like quite a different proposition to the rifle behind every blade of grass RoS.

The fence I just placed? Iím on it rather than taking cover behind it.

That was quick. It doesnít take more than a few seconds to matchmake a 100 player game so I guess there was plenty of interest.
