Epic Games' new game, Fortnite, will feel like the studio's other games like those in the Gears of War series, according to producer, Tanya Jessen.
The new shooter might not look like other Epic titles -- its cartoon style distances it quite significantly from the grey and gritty look of apocalyptic Gears of War -- but that doesn't mean it will play differently.
"I don't really think Fortnite is a big departure for our fanbase," explained Ms Jessen, "and the proof will be in the pudding when we put it out there."
Mr Jessen says that fans of other Epic Games titles will see "things from [our] other games".
"We're going back to our pedigree, so the shooting experience like with Horde: that's all going to be a part of the moment to moment experience with Fornite."
While the art style is obviously different from Gears of War, "it's not more of a traditional experience...but I still think people who love Gears will love Fornite."
