Fortnite second closed alpha starts with a livestream

Fortnite second alpha

Not part of Epic Games’ closed alpha for Fortnite? No worries: you’ll be able to get a heavy dose of the crafting-heavy action game via the medium of livestream as the second closed alpha kicks into gear later today. 

‘Online Test 2’ runs from today until April 14th, from noon to midnight each day. If you’re a closed alpha player, all your stats from the last alpha in December will have been wiped, so everyone starts again from scratch.

Fortnite sees players harvest materials to build weapons and forts with trap-like defences in order to defend against an invasion from another dimension. There are PvE and PvP modes to play.

To check out the livestream and see if Epic’s latest is something you’d be interested in, point your browser towards Twitch at 9pm GMT / 4pm ET.

Fortnite is due to launch on PC later in the year.

Thanks, Polygon.
