In this episode of #testing-tuesday, Jan and I tested the three top-rated companion Skills for Fortnite:
The Skills offer suggestions for drop locations, challenges and gaming tips, respectively.
Neither Jan nor I have ever played Fortnite, so our possibility of evaluating the customer value of the Skills is limited (which is why we focussed on discussing the design aspects of the Skill). So, we’re curious to hear what actual players of Fortnite (or other battle royale games such as PUBG or Apex Legends) have to say:
- How valiuable are random drop zones and challenges? Is our understanding that introducing such randomly chosen constraints make the game more interesting correct?
- How much value is there in the ‘premium’ drop locations offered by the ‘Fortnite Challenges’ Skill? Are some drop locations hard to come up with but particularly good?
- Are voice apps a meaningful way of consuming Fortnite gaming tips, like the ones offered in the ‘Fortnite Tips’ Skill?
- As a Fortnite (or generally battle royale) player, what’s the Skill of your dreams? Would something like the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill, which helps with Clan communications and inventory management, make sense here?
Looking forward to hearing your opinions! If you haven’t played Fortnite either, you’re still invited to share your ideas!
