The newest patch for the monster of the battle royale genre that is Fortnite is live, and gamers are already digging in to uncover all of the new weapons, locations and other goodies this update added. And as is par for the course, there’ a fair few things changes as well. Gamers across the globe are about to get their boom on with the headline new weapon, a portable engine of destruction.
Epic has introduced another new weapon into the gargantuan arsenal in their battle royale shooter. Say hello to the new Air Strike, which players can call in at any time to rain destruction down upon their foes. See it in action in the preview video below.
To go along with this, other cool additions include the De-Atomizer 9000 in Save the World, among other new modes and items. There’s a bunch of new stuff for Creative Mode and some new enemy variants in the mode as well, like some new Car Gallery cosmetics to pimp your ride with. (Xzibit not included)
