Ninja streamed on Twitch yesterday for the first time since Mixer died

In what might be considered an unsurprising move, Ninja was back on Twitch yesterday - if only for a brief couple of hours. He played a bit of Fortnite's new Joyride update with Dr Lupo in his first stream on the platform since he left for Microsoft's now-dead Mixer last year. The popular lad had managed to rack up 100,000 viewers when I caught part…

Fornite’s cars have arrived

It's time to collect your driving licence, because Fortnite's Joyride update just added some shiny new vehicles for you to race around in. There are four cars/trucks for players to find across the battle royale now, each allowing you to pick up your buds, hang out the windows and cause some carnage. You can even stick on their radios for a little sing-along if you…

Fortnite is screening anti-racism panel We The People all day

How did you expect Fortnite to celebrate the USA's Independence Day? Fireworks, Rockets. Llamas and musicians falling from the sky? Instead, Epic have more appropriate plans for 2020's 4th of July celebration. As Black Lives Matter protests continue into the Summer, the monolithic battle royale hopes to use its new party island to educate - broadcasting Øpus United's anti-racism presentation We The People throughout the…

Fortnite will show Inception free in its virtual cinema on Friday

When Epic announced plans to show a full Christoper Nolan film on Fortnite's in-game cinema screens, I guessed it was probably Inception or maybe Batman. Turns out, it's both - or even The Prestige instead. Interestingly/frustratingly, the film that'll be screened free on Friday varies by country due to rights issues and local laws. So the UK gets The Prestige, the USA gets Inception, France…

Police cars have gotten the boot from Fortnite

Epic Games have been pretty vocal about the big changes to Fortnite in the battle royale's new season. The entire map is full of water, if you hadn't seen. Another change came in without the same fanfare. Players have noticed that Epic have also removed all the police cars from the game, including Creative mode maps. Epic haven't made an official statement on the subject, but…

Fortnite’s new sharks have absolutely zero chill

Why should Fortnite's 100-player deathmatch be limited to humans, anyway? If we're going to prove who's the best of the best, let's invite the whole animal kingdom along for the ride. Fortnite's latest update sank the map, bringing deadly sharks into the fray - and it looks like the ocean predators are already more than capable of snagging themselves that victory royale.

Fortnite’s new season has flooded the world

A storm has swept through Fortnite, leaving the island looking a bit like the Universal Studios stunt show, Waterworld: A Live Sea War Spectacular. Chapter 2 Season 3 launched today and the battle royale's map has been remade once again, with large chunks of it now underwater. And yes, you really can get around by fast by snagging a shark with your fishing rod then…

Fortnite’s storm is a giant wall of water now thanks to The Agency’s doomsday machine

Fortnite's done it again with one of their live events. The battle royale kicked off Chapter 2 Season 3 by unveiling a thing they've called The Device.

Get yer flippers ready because the…

You know how it goes, Fortnite is constantly changing up the map and events on its battle royale island and folks love to get a sneak peek at what's up next. This time around it's not a datamine that dug up the dirt. It seems that the PlayStation Store accidentally changed Fortnite's icon on its site to this, the battle bus floating over an endless…

As was foretold, Fortnite's new Party Royale island is real.

You can fly a helicopter in Fortnite now

Starting today, Fortnite players will be able to grab their friends and take to the skies in the brand new Choppas (or "helicopters", as they're more commonly known - I see your Predator reference, Epic). If you've been playing any of the recent spy-themed season, you may have noticed some heli-pads dotted around the secret bases, and that's exactly where you'll be able to find…

Fortnite’s newest dance is no stranger to love

Did... did Fortnite run out of pop culture to nick? Have we really exhausted every last dance move, team? Was there nothing the kids find more romantic than a 1987 pop jam turned early web prank?

Ninja has a Fortnite skin and I cannot mentally parse it

I am watching Ninja stream Fortnite as Ninja and it is like being caught between two mirrors, except I am not looking at a void filled with my incrementally smaller versions of myself, I am looking at the endless reflections of a man, roughly my own age, and in each reflection he is more athletic, his hair is more blue, his hype is more real.…
