Indus is Coming to Fortnite Soon To Let Gamers Experience the Gameplay
According to Pune-based SuperGaming co-founder, Christelle D’Cruz, they learned, built, and created Indus for Fortnite with no prior experience. SuperGaming is banking on Fortnite’s popularity with 220 million monthly players worldwide. With this initiative, SuperGaming intends to get more global gamers to experience Indus and Indo-Futurism gameplay. It will also help the developer to get gamers’ thoughts and feedback on various aspects of the game and finetune the final gameplay ahead of the official launch of the Induds battle royale.
In the release shared by the developer, D’crus stated, “This will allow us to test Indus’ gameplay with external audiences faster and give more gamers a chance to experience Indo-Futurism through their game of choice — Fortnite.” While Indus is a standalone battle royale game, the Indus Mode in Fortnite is a separate experience designed for macOS and PC. Gamers will be able to experience the actual Indus gameplay along with the Cosmium-focussed win condition, which allows players to win by capturing this unique resource that manifests on the map.
SuperGaming has not yet revealed when Indus will land in Fortnite but we can expect it to arrive before its official launch. The battle royale game is slated to arrive on Android in the closed beta phase this festive season with the battle royale mode and key features previously teased by the developer. The game is currently available for pre-register for close beta on Play Store and SuperGaming has revealed that it has already clocked over 5 million pre-registrations so far. There’s no word on the iOS close beta yet since the beta testing on the platform is different from Android.
