A major studio working its employees to the bone is a sadly common story, but today's revelation (via a Polygon report) that Fortnite Battle Royale's success lead to hundred-hour work-weeks is still frustrating.

Fortnite World Cup punished over 1000 accounts in the first week alone

Epic have yoinked prizes from hundreds of Fortnite players in the first week of their World Cup open qualifiers, for reasons ranging from fraudulently entering in multiple regions to full-on cheating. They punished over one thousand players in all over the first week's competition, most of them temporary bans. That's a whole lot of cheaters for a single stage of a single competition, though in…

Fortnite’s World Cup Creative challenges builders instead of shooters this summer

Fortnite Battle Royale is feeling more and more like a misnomer of late. Its most recent foray out of the genre is a competitive Creative World Cup, five trials based around specific challenges created by famous Fortniters, with a final running alongside the regular World Cup finals this July. Good news for those who are better at putting up walls than sniping through them.

The next update for unimaginably popular mega-hit Fortnite Battle Royale will bring in the ability to revive your teammates at various spots where Reboot Vans have been parked. No longer will you have to go on alone after your friends are wiped out by someone in an eerily unblinking, scuffed up panda head. Here’s a man in a banana costume explaining how it all works.

Fortnite heats up with The Floor Is Lava mode

If the recent months of Epic Games hot takes and flamewars hadn't given you at least an inkling that Epic are the gods of hellfire and they bring us fire, they're now flooding the world with lava. Fortnite Battle Royale today launched its new 'The Floor Is Lava' event mode, which is a bit like that childhood favourite game except the lava is real and…

Fortnite rolls out human hamster balls

Delightfully daft new orb vehicles are now rolling around Fortnite Battle Royale, big hamster ball-looking rollies complete with a grappling gun to swing around. I honestly couldn't tell you if this new 'Baller' vehicle is good because I, and everyone else I saw in one, was too busy larking about to play seriously. Which is certainly enough for me. Today's update also changed the rarely-used…

Lawsuit claims Fortnite’s random loot boxes were ‘deceptive’

Epic Games’ lawyers seem to be being kept quite busy at the moment, with yet another lawsuit targeting the company. This latest filing, which targets the lesser played survival version of Fortnite, Save The World, alleges that the blind loot boxes (which were recently pulled from the game) were “a predatory scheme,” that “mercilessly…lured minors and other purchasers.”

Yarr! Fortnite Season 8 erupts with lava and pirates

Pirates and their natural meme enemies, ninjas, have brought their decade-old cyberfight to Fortnite with the launch of Season 8. Epic have once again reshaped the landscape of their free-to-play battle royale 'em up, sprouting a volcano sicking up lava. What I'm most interested to see, however, is the pirate cannons now scattered around the map, which players can use to fire boooring cannon balls…

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 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.

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.

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…
