All your Fortnitemares are about to come true

‘Tis the most creepy time of the year, and in the spirit of Halloween, Fortnite has decided to roll out an event mode called ‘Fortnitemares’. And this time, you won’t be fighting each other. Life was going very well on the island. The only thing you had to worry about was other players actively looking for people to kill… Then, when the bells tolled on 24 October, the map became littered with comp...[Read More]

You can now play Fortnite on Android without an invite

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 owners got the first taste of Fortnite on Android a few months ago. And after that the only way to gain access to the game was by receiving a coveted ‘invite’ from Epic Games.

Because October is literally around the corner and 31 Octobe...[Read More]

Sony caves – You’ll soon be able to play cross-platform Fortnite with all your friends

Sony is finally enabling cross-play for Fortnite today. Yup. Really. The PlayStation 4 manufacturer previously blocked cross-play and progression between PS4 and Nintendo Switch and Xbox One for massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite.

How Fortnite rewrote all the business rules

There’s an epidemic sweeping schools and your child could be next. Kids everywhere are challenging each other to do something called the Orange Crush. Some are even filming themselves doing it and posting it onto YouTube. Thankfully, you don’t have to bring in a drug counsellor if you catch them in the act. In fact, you might be tempted to get them a tutor. If you don’t know what I’m talking about...[Read More]
