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…

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.

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…

Rampage in peace: Fortnite firm Epic end Unreal Tournament development

For those of us of a certain age, 'Epic' means 'Unreal' - but, of course, for those of you of a certain, rather younger age, 'Epic' means 'Fortnite.' A very stupid part of my brain couldn't quite let go of the idea that all this cartoony battle royale business was just a temporary distraction for Epic, and soon enough they'd go back to making Unreal…

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.

Fortnite’s cross-platform account merging delayed until early 2019

Fortnite’s Halloween zombie invasion stumbles as it launches

Betrayal! Once thought benevolent for its shield-giving and bouncy properties, Fortnite Battle Royale's once-beloved purple cube (affectionately named Kevin by players) has turned heel for Halloween. Beginning the new Fortnitemares event, the formerly friendly block of rune-daubed jelly is summoning NPC undead hordes into the popular shooter. The zombies appear to have taken a bite out of the server infrastructure, and Epic have postponed the…

Fortnite is testing true cross-platform play as Sony finally ease up

Fortnite has already taken over the world, but after an announcement on Sony's PlayStation Blog today, I might be willing to give it some tentative credit in ending the console war, too. Or starting a new one. After months of Sony taking up Microsoft's old miserly crown and saying that cross-platform play between PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC players just wasn't on the cards,…
