Fortnite living life to the max with new Driftboards

A hoverboard has flipped a sick 720 nollie reverso ted talk into Fortnite Battle Royale today with this week's update. An earthquake is seemingly rumbling into action ahead of Season 8's start next week, perhaps signalling another cataclysmic climate-changing event, but if the snow might soon melt let's right now live an xtreme life to the max. These natty technoplanks let players whizz around at…

Epic sue organisers of rubbish Fortnite Live festival in Norwich

Photo: ITV News Anglia Adding legal injury to public insult, Epic Games are suing Exciting Events, organisers of a disastrous Fortnite-themed festival in Norwich. The utterly naff-looking event made for some amusing headlines over the weekend, with the BBC covering it here. Despite the Fortnite Live festival invoking the name and using character art from Epic's battle royale shooter, it was unsurprisingly unofficial. In a…

Fortnite Battle Royale shaken up by earthquakes

I know Apex Legends has shaken up the scene, but it feels a little bit on-the-nose that Fortnite Battle Royale is literally cracking up under the pressure. Epic's all-consuming last man standing shooter is gearing up for another season, starting on February 28th, which means there's changes coming to its ever-shifting battlefield. Such change has previously been brought about by weird inter-dimensional antics and a…

Fortnite dance lawsuit: Alfonso Ribeiro turned down for ‘Carlton dance’ copyright

While Fortnite Battle Royale throws concerts and prepares for [block id="635651" title="Fortnite Season 8"], the lawsuits against developers Epic Games that claim they copied various dance for their unlockable emotes rumble on. One of the litigants has suffered a setback though, as Alfonso Ribeiro was denied copyright for the famous 'Carlton dance'. It doesn’t scupper anything entirely, but it does seem to throw a wrench…

Fortnite Battle Royale now whizzing bottle rockets all over

In the spirit of lunar new year, Fortnite Battle Royale today set off oh so many fireworks. Its weekly content update has added the new 'Bottle Rockets' item, which is more extravagant than it sounds. When set down and sparked, this deployable doodad will spit 45 fireworks over 9 seconds with mild abandon, damaging players and structures caught in the broad target zone. It's a…

Marshmello’s Fortnite Battle Royale concert was a blast, but highlights Epic’s crediting inconsistencies

Last night I went to a Marshmello concert. Marshmello is a DJ that I know almost nothing about – I recognised a couple of his songs when they were played, but without a cue I couldn’t tell you what they sound like, much less any of their names. The concert also took place entirely within Fortnite Battle Royale, a video game I’ve played only a…

Fortnite Patch v7.30 adds freeze grenades, puts old guns on ice

Fans of the bolt-action sniper rifle, burst rifle, heavy shotgun and SMG will have to find a new weapon of choice in Fortnite Battle Royale. Today's patch has exiled them to the vault, and out of standard rotation - a shakeup in the meta for the absurdly popular battle royale shooter. The update also reintroduces the suppressed SMG (to replace the regular one), and further…

Fortnite now lets you dress up as a Sneaky Snowman

Fortnite's v7.20 content update is now live and adds a frosty-themed item to the battle royale, allowing you to sneak up on unsuspecting players by donning a rather innocuous looking snowman outfit. And what an ace way to blend in following the explosion of the ice orb that was hovering above the Polar Peaks, this weekend, blanketing the entire map in snow.

Ominous Ice King brings a blizzard to Fortnite Battle Royale

Winter has come to Fortnite Battle Royale, with the mysterious Ice King breaking free of his sky-orb to coat the island in a layer of crisp snow. I hate the cold, and therefore I am obliged to hate the Ice King, but I must admit it’s all rather pretty. Some players who witnessed the event captured it for the rest of us:

Epic fix security hole able to get into accounts from clicking a link

A now-fixed security hole in the account system of Fortnite devs Epic Games could let scoundrels log in as other folks and even buy things, just by getting them to click on a dodgy link. Unlike many phishing schemes, this worked by hijacking the user's authentication token - not even needing to trick them into entering their username and password. Epic say they've now fixed…

Fortnite brings back glider redeploying, kinda

The ability to redeploy your glider like a flying squirrel any time you please in Fortnite Battle Royale has returned, kinda. Once an unlimited ability, it's now tied to an item you'll need to find and which only has ten charges. As someone who only dabbles in Fortnite's 50v50 madcap modes between my weeks-long matches in Ian Iannucci's Battle For Basildon, I like glider-redeploying as…

14 Days of Fortnite will return soon, but only for about a week

Fortnite had a lovely festive event at the end of last year: a fortnight (groan) of challenges and gifts for players of both the Save The World and Battle Royale modes. However, thanks to some miscommunication about exactly when this two-week celebration would end, it's coming back. But not for its full length - only from some time "early next week" until January 15th. So…

Fortnite kicks off a fortnight of holiday challenges and debuts The Block

Launched yesterday, the 14 Days Of Fortnite event brings a set of Christmas goodies to both Battle Royale and Save The World modes. There's also (not too rough) daily challenges with their own rewards until new year's day - today's being to just check out the…

Fresh Prince’s Alfonso Ribeiro pursuing legal action over Fortnite’s Carlton Dance

Epic Games not coming up with their own dance moves continues to cause trouble for mega-popular shooter Fortnite Battle Royale. As reported by TMZ, actor Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks in The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air) is suing Epic for cribbing his famously daft dance for use in the game as a premium emote sold in-game. Ribeiro is in the process of copyrighting the dance,…

Fortnite’s Infinity Blade homage has hacked off the fun

After pulling the plug on their Infinity Blade series of mobile action-RPGs this week, Epic added the eponymous sword to Fortnite Battle Royale - and now Fortnite players are upset about Infinity Blade too. Only one supersword is available on the whole map but whoever pulls it from the stone atop an icy mountain will go on to wreck faces. Cleaving bone and brick alike…

Fortnite season 7 takes to the snowy skies today

An iceberg has smashed into Fortnite Battle Royale, freezing over a big corner of the island and kicking off the free-to-play shooter's Season 7. One corner of the island is now covered in snow and ice, with ziplines running between peaks, and chuffing flyable warplanes are buzzing around its skies. Today also brings the debut of Fortnite Creative, a mode based on Battle Royale's Playground…

Fortnite Creative is a powerful sandbox mode for the battle royale juggernaut

Epic Games have announced the big new feature for Fortnite's seventh season: Fortnite Creative, a free construction sandbox where players can build their own custom multiplayer modes alone or with pals. Formally announced here, it looks a lot like the Forge mode from later Halo games, and a lot more fleshed out than the earlier Playground mode. Multiple island maps to build on, a sack of…

Fortnite dance creator to pursue legal action against Epic

American rapper 2 Milly has engaged lawyers to take legal against Epic Games for copying his 'Milly Rock' dance for an emote they sold in Fortnite Battle Royale without paying, asking, or even crediting him. 2 Milly has expressed frustration over this before, as have a number of other people who felt their moves were copied by Epic's mega-hit game. Exactly what the lawyers will…

In especially well-timed fashion, Epic Games - they of the Unreal Engine and Fortnite - have announced they're going head to head with Steam with the Epic Games Store. The new storefront will open via web and the Epic Games Launcher before the end of 2018. Enticingly for developers, Epic have announced that they'll only be taking a flat 12% cut of revenue, less than…
