One day, 98% of Earth's population suddenly disappeared, and the remaining population found the skies covered in dense clouds, creating chaotic storms that dropped husks, humanoid zombie-like creatures, that attacked the living.
The survivors found ways to construct "storm shields", a field that cleared the storm clouds from immediately overhead and reduced the attacks from husks, and used these to set up survivor bases across the globe.
The player is a commander of one of these bases, charged with going out of the storm shield to find resources, survivors, and other allies to help expand their storm shield and find a way to return Earth to its normal state.
The "Save the World" mode has been described as a mix of Minecraft, The Walking Dead, Team Fortress 2 And Left 4 Dead.
The worlds that people will play in, are randomly generated, using premade tiles.
The game cycles between managing one's resources at a safe home base, and then going out on missions to complete quests as to collect resources and obtain rewards to advance the game's story.
Most missions take place on procedurally-generated landscapes.
Players can construct new weapons, ammo, and traps from gathered resources, or find these from searching containers across the map.
During missions, the game progresses through an accelerated day-night cycle; during the day, the husks are more passive and do not generally pose immediate threats, while during the night, bands of husks may spawn in and will aggressively seek out players.
is also able to offer themed-events with a unique progression line, new locations, and rewards based on those themes.
The first such event was its Halloween event, "Fortnitemares", that offered Halloween-themed heroes, characters, weapons and traps (usable outside of the event) by completing numerous objectives.
