    Fortnite has brought with it perhaps the game’s most interesting vehicle to date

    Fortnite has brought with it perhaps the game’s most interesting vehicle to date, and one that everyone is not constantly complaining about like we saw with planes in season 7. That would be the Baller, the new hamster ball-like vehicle that has players rolling around the map and suction-cupping themselves to surfaces almost identical to Overwatch’s hero, Wrecking Ball. As if Overwatch needs any more salt in its wounds recently. This week, players are being asked to seek out Ballers specifically to use them in different matches. They can be a little hard to spot as you’ll often find them hiding inside buildings, and they’re really quite small as a one-man vehicle. Go here…

    With the launch of Apex Legends’ Battle Pass earlier this week

    With the launch of Apex Legends’ Battle Pass earlier this week, I was gearing up to write challenges posts for each game, but in Apex Legends, you gain experience simply by playing. For now, it appears Fortnite v buck generator still outpaces its challengers when it comes to getting players to come back week after week. Regardless of which game you like better, you have to admit that having specific goals to shoot for adds something special to the game. We’ll have to see what Apex Legends does in future seasons, but I feel like developer Respawn missed a big opportunity there. If you haven’t finished last week’s challenges, head over to…

    Epic is worth an estimated $15 billion; it’s the steward of Fortnite

    The editor was a fantastic surprise for burgeoning video game developers outside (and probably inside) of Sweeney’s parents’ house, where he’d just laid the foundation of a company that would become Epic Games. Nearly 30 years later and Epic is worth an estimated $15 billion; it’s the steward of Fortnite, a generation-defining game, and Unreal, one of the most widely used engines in existence. Plus, it recently launched the Epic Games Store, a digital marketplace finally capable of knocking Steam’s crown askew. “It was in those early days that Epic’s kind of core philosophy was set,” Sweeney said. “free v bucks generator We both build games ourselves and we share all…

    Fortnite’s latest mysteries is centered around a helicopter that players found in the map recently

    Fortnite’s latest mysteries is centered around a helicopter that players found in the map recently, and while players can’t hop in it and use it like they would the Stormwing planes before they were vaulted, there are still some questions surrounding it. It’s purpose for being on the map is something that players still aren’t sure of, but even more curious is the fact that this helicopter appears to be moving around the map to visit different locations. Players began sharing their accounts of the helicopter in Fortnite recently with screenshots and, more importantly, theories about what the vehicle is doing on the map. It’s been spotted close to Lazy Lagoon and now…

    Watch out Fortnite players, another instant death spot has been discovered on the game’s battle royale island

    This is the third spot players have discovered that results in an instant elimination simply by walking through it, joining the Fork Knife discovery and, more recently, The Block issue. What exactly is causing these instant eliminations remains unclear. READ: Fortnite PSA: Walking near this Fatal Fields spot will kill you The bug is simple and incredibly frustrating: walk in what is now being called an ‘instant death’ zone on the Fortnite battle royale island and you’ll immediately die. The screen will read “You Eliminated Yourself,” and the kill feed will state, “PlayerName didn’t stick the landing.” Neither is true — all v buck generator  it takes is a step in the wrong…

    But on Fortnite, socializing is a natural corollary to something else.

    Fortnite. The wildly popular online video game has quietly become one of the planet’s biggest social networks. Not in a traditional sense, of course. Fortnite Battle Royale is, first and foremost, a last-man-standing, shooter-style game, especially popular among teens and twentysomethings. (Disclaimer here: I’m not a hardcore Fortnite player, though I know plenty of people who are.) In the game, 100 players at a time jump out of a flying bus and onto an island. Combatants are left to duke it out, Hunger Games-style, with a variety of weapons, armor, “healables,” and other tools at their disposal. Though the premise is violent, the game itself really isn’t, with none of the gore or blood of…

    we already know that Epic Games is working on a new vehicle

    Word of a possible new vehicle comes way of a new datamining effort from the data miners over at Skin-Tracker, who dug up new game files that were added with Season 8 and that make reference to something called “Athena_OctopusSpawner,” which suggests that whatever the new vehicle is, it will be Octopus-related. Of course, this sounds like a very Fortnite thing to add. That said, despite the current map containing some water-heavy locations — such as Lazy Lagoon — there doesn’t seem to be enough water across the map to justify adding a water-based vehicle. However, as the season progresses, it’s possible the map will change and become more engulfed by water,…

    Fortnite: Battle Royale Update 8.01 Patch Notes

    Epic Games has released another update that brings something that had been teased and fits in nicely with the season’s pirate theme.

    Fortnite’s 2018 Valentine’s Day, but 2019 is here and the game has taken a dark turn

    Fortnite’s 2018 Valentine’s Day, but 2019 is here and the game has taken a dark turn. There are a ton of Valentine’s Day skins coming our way, but one of the most interesting has to be the Love Ranger’s counterpart, the Fallen Ranger: we remember that in Fortnite, evil usually translates to “sort of purple”. Such is the case with the Fallen Ranger, who is indeed the cherubic Love Ranger except sort of purple.     It’s slick, most certainly. The horns are a nice way to make it a little less like a complete re-skin. And while we’ve had plenty of back bling wings between last Valentine’s Day and now, this represents…
