No occasion is full with out balloons. Fortnite Battle Royale turns into extra like a ten-year-old’s birthday do with each replace – solely with extra machine weapons. And helium balloons with sufficient elevate to ship you, a pal and your purchasing trolley skywards.
Those balloons landed (floated?) with in the present day’s replace, however the Fortnite freight prepare of stories doesn’t cease there. Epic Games have lined up one other in-game occasion for Sunday, the place we might lastly see the demise of Kevin the dice. Or one thing.
I nonetheless love how Fortnite exhibits off its new stuff in playful 30 second chunks. They’re hardly consultant of an precise match, however they seize a lot of its spirit.
Anyway, right here’s the low-down on our new inflatable buddies. They’re of epic rarity, are available in packs of 20, and it’s good to be holding 6 of them earlier than you possibly can take to the skies. They’ll pop should you float on the most peak for too lengthy, or if somebody places a bullet via them. Obviously.
More specifics will be present in the patch notes, in addition to some steadiness adjustments. The guided missile launcher, semi-auto sniper rifle and twin pistols have been axed, and explosive injury has been juiced up a bit.
The patch notes additionally point out that the glider re-deploy system is right here to remain, which is nice information for aspiring aeronauts.
Right, again to Kevin nonsense. This tweet from Epic Games doesn’t explicitly point out the enormous dice that’s been romping across the map doing supernatural graffiti, however no matter goes down at 6pm UK time on Sunday is sure to contain him indirectly.
Fortnitemares in Battle Royale ends on Sunday, November four at 1pm ET/ 6pm UTC. Finish your Fortnitemares Challenges by then to unlock the Dark Engine Glider. Login early and be in-match to witness the one-time occasion which begins at 1pm ET/ 6pm UTC. pic.twitter.com/6lBVC4REyS

I’m glad this cube saga didn’t conclude with the Halloween occasion, when glowing purple zombies invaded the map. Glowing purple zombies are kind of enjoyable, however Fortnite can do higher and it is aware of it.
The final dwell occasion noticed a rocket launch create a crack in the fabric of reality, so count on one thing equally dramatic.
