Fortnite continues poking at Apple with a tournament offering daft prizes

In their ongoing attempt to create a public moral cause out of the courtroom battle they started with Apple and Google, Epic Games are holding a Fortnite tournament with some stupid prizes mocking Apple. Play in Sunday's #FreeFortnite Cup and you can earn the apple-headed 'Tart Tycoon' skin, and if you do really well you could even win a new laptop, console, phone, or stupid…

Epic are asking US court to prevent Apple from removing Fortnite and Unreal Engine access

It was too much to hope for that Epic Games and Apple would take their fight quietly to a court room, it seems. After their very dramatic 1984 propaganda spinoff video, Epic are committed to having it out in public. The latest legal maneuver in the proceedings comes from Epic, who have asked the a US district court for northern California to prevent Apple from terminating…

Epic’s Fortnite beef with Apple and Google is just, but weaponising fans is irresponsible

Yesterday, Epic Games appeared to intentionally violate Apple and Google app store rules to get Fortnite removed so they could jump-start a protest. Sick of mobile stores taking a 30% cut of microtransactions, they added a payment option bypassing official systems - something both stores forbid. Epic surely knew this, and the fact that they had lawsuits and an embarrassing protest video ready to go…

Epic Games are now suing Google as well as Apple for booting Fortnite off app stores

It's another bright new day in 2020, so I guess it's time to watch three mega corporations throw hissy fits because they aren't happy with the amount of money they're making off each other. Last night, Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple for removing Fortnite from the iOS App Store, after Epic broke Apple's payment policy. Then the exact same thing happened with Google…

Epic open fire on Apple with a Fortnite propaganda reel

The latest show to hit Fortnite's Party Island isn't a blow-out concert or Chris Nolan flick. Somehow, it's weirder. Hop in front of Fortnite's big telly right now and you'll find a call to "#FreeFortnite" from the supposed tyranny of tech giant Apple, who today removed the battle royale from the App Store for sidestepping its revenue policies. Now, Epic are taking Apple to court…

Fortnite’s V-Bucks are now permanently a bit cheaper

Fortnite's V-Bucks may have dropped 20% against the dollar, but economists need not fret. Unlike the real world, Epic's murder island isn't suffering an economic downturn. Instead, the blockbuster battle royale has decided to permanently cut the price of its virtual currency to spite tech giants Apple and Google, in an app store feud that's quietly benefiting those of us who prefer to parachute into…

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…

Ninja is streaming on YouTube now

In what must be a huge stroke of luck, some fella called "Ninja" is streaming on YouTube for the first time ever for hundreds of thousands of viewers. "Like, this is my first YouTube stream ever. Ever. Literally ever," Ninja told his viewers as he dropped out of the battle bus for his first Fortnite match of the stream. I know Fortnite's popular and all, but…

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: Save The World leaves early access, but isn’t going free-to-play

You will be forgiven for thinking that Fortnite: Save The World had already left early access. This is what many see as a strange appendage to Fortnite Battle Royale, but is actually the original PvE game that arguably birthed an entire epoch - all, apparently, while remaining in early access. It's a brazen assault on the fabric of meaning, but it's also maybe not all…

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. As some leakers predicted a few weeks back, most of the map is getting plunged underwater after a battle between Fortnite's blue storm and some giant doomsday device controlled by The Agency. Get yer flippers ready because the…

Inception turns ten in July, it's like a big ol' video game itself, they could add fun in-game effects with folding worlds and slowed time...…

For starters, all developers can now use the online technoguts they initially created for Fortnite, for free.
