This game was released on July 25, 2017 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

Fortnite is a co-op survival game developed by People Can Fly and Epic Games, and published by Gearbox. After an apocalypse that made 98% of the world’s population vanish and unleashed hordes of monsters, the remaining Heroes have to band together and scavenge for items, build shelter, and craft weapons and traps to survive.

Fortnite will go free-to-play in 2018, but this article is concerning the Early Access period starting July 25, for which you have to purchase one of the digital Founder’s Packs to play (Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe, or Limited). Pre-ordering any of these also grants you some bonuses, as detailed after the jump.
