As an alternative to its main Battle Royale mode, Epic have introduced "a new experimental and evolving space" where friends can hang out and play minigames together or, apparently, attend a concert by DJ man Diplo performing his Major Lazer set last Friday. It was the latest in a series of live events that Epic…

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? This Valentine's Day, Epic Games introduced a whole new generation of kids to rick-rolling, announcing an Astley-tastic "Never Gonna" emote to the game using the oldest trick in the…

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.…

You can grab a lightsaber in Fortnite this week for a proper showdown

It's that time of year again. A new Star Wars movie is coming, which means that Disney have partnered with countless other brands to make sure there are stormtroopers and lightsabers and blasters in your face every day. One of their latest partnerships is with Fortnite, where Geoff Keighley, director J.J. Abrams, and Ben Schwartz (as a stormtrooper) got together in-game on Saturday to show…

PC Gaming’s most surprising spin-offs

I love a spin-off. Angel? Great stuff! Count Duckula? The Better Call Saul of cartoons. Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami? Take me, I’m yours! I could go on and on cutting-and-pasting from this Wikipedia page, but I’ll get to the point. Games also have spin-offs. Often they’ll be forgotten about. Sometimes they’re even disowned. On a few occasions, they’ll take on a life of their…

Fortnite gets technical, adding DirectX 12 support in this week’s update

This week's Fortnite update is much like any other. A few bug fixes here, some rebalances there, clean the blood off the grass for another night's mass-murder. But one of patch 11.20's least noticeable updates may, in fact, be its most important. Epic Games have added DirectX 12 support to their massive battle royale, laying the groundwork for future graphical and technical flourishes while providing…

Fortnite summons the Storm King for a spooky PvE boss battle event

Halloween has arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale with a honking great cooperative boss battle in an event mode like something out of an MMORPG. The Storm King LTM sees the big boy and his undead armies rise again and sends a few dozen players out to stop him. I've had a few cracks myself and been surprised by quite how tough the fight is.

Epic Games sue tester for “spoiling” Fortnite: Chapter 2

Epic Games, developers of that little game that you might have heard of called Fortnite, are suing a UX tester for leaking details about their big shift into Chapter 2. They say that Ronald Sykes caused them harm by Tweeting things he shouldn’t have about season 11, which eventually arrived after their big black hole event a couple of weeks ago.

Fortnite Chapter 2 is live, exploring a whole new world

After being swallowed by a black hole, Fortnite has now returned as Fortnite Chapter 2. Month. That's a month, Epic. Month takes the battle royale action to a whole new island, one which (so far) doesn't bear the scars of two years of mystical and cataclysmic events. Month even adds fishing, which now makes Fortnite officially an RPG (sorry, I don't make the rules).

Fortnite: Battle Royale has been replaced by a black hole [Updated]

Update: The black hole has secrets. More below.Fortnite: Battle Royale's ominous countdown has ended, and a rocket barrage fractured its (extremely pretty) skydome. Then all the players, the entire map, and even the long-suffering battle bus were hoovered up into oblivion. Now the entire game's been replaced by a mysterious (and occasionally horrifically flickering) black hole. A normal Sunday night.
