Fortnite's Giant Monster And Robot Finally Fought

Fortnite's Giant Monster And Robot Finally Fought

Today was the long-awaited battle between Fortnite’s giant monster, Cattus, and giant robot, Doggus. It was pretty much what players expected, but it sure was dramatic.

In the only available mode, The Final Showdown, players saw Cattus appear from the water and Doggus pull free of his perch in Pressure Plant. Cattus attacked the vault, which was the site of last season’s big event. He was...

Fortnite Leakers Band Together To Swear Off Spoiling This Weekend's Big Event

In these days of rampant data mining, few things are ever truly surprises. Even Fortnite’s seemingly endless parade of (often literal) bashes isn’t immune, with big moments like the Tilted-Towers-leveling Vault event getting spoiled before players could experience them firsthand. This weekend, though, longtime leakers—people with the word “leak” front and center in their handles—have decided...

Ah Yes, <i>Fortnite </i>& The NFL, Together At Last

Starting on Friday, you’ll be able to get official NFL skins for Fortnite. All 32 teams, with the NFL logo on them and everything.

You’ll have to pay for them, of course. The only charity on display here is that they remembered to include the Raiders.

Nothing Lasts Forever In Fortnite

Nothing Lasts Forever In <i>Fortnite</i>

Fortnite Battle Royale’s season nine has transformed the game’s world once again, with a futuristic Tilted Towers and trippy, robotic character outfits. It’s also brought balance changes, including the curious decision to retire one of the game’s oldest weapons. The pump shotgun is going in the vault, and it’s a reminder that nothing really lasts in Fortnite.

The pump shotgun was vaulted, or...

Fornite's New Getaway Mode Is A Fast-Paced Comedy Of Errors

<i>Fornite</i>'s New Getaway Mode Is A Fast-Paced Comedy Of Errors

Fortnite’s newest limited-time mode, Getaway, feels a bit like a mini-crash course in everything you need to know if you want to win in the main battle royale. The capture the flag-esque mode is full of dangerous drops and surprising turns of fortune. Matches are short but packed with new surprises. If you wanted something faster-paced than the main game, this is the mode for you.

In Getaway,...

<i>Fortnite </i>Players Create Obstacle Courses That Play Beautiful Music And Also Smash Mouth

Oh, Overwatch has pianos now ? Well, Fortnite scoffs at that musty 18th-century instrument, with its corporeal ivory keys and termite-vulnerable wooden body. Fortnite players can create entire worlds that are instruments.

Fortnite’s creative mode allows players to deploy and arrange music blocks, which make certain sounds when characters move past them. A recent update added new ones, and now...

Battle royale game Apex Legends has only been out for a few weeks and Fortnite is already copying one of its best ideas, with today’s Season 8 update adding a ping system alongside other new stuff like pirate ships and a giant volcano.

In the proud tradition of shows like DashCon , Fyre and NathanCon , an under-staffed, under-planned and unlicensed Fortnite party held in the UK over the weekend turned out to be a complete disaster.

Fortnite Gets Guided Missiles Back, And They're Less Likely To Dominate

<i>Fortnite</i> Gets Guided Missiles Back, And They're Less Likely To Dominate

Fun: riding a guided missile right into some unsuspecting goon’s face. Not fun: being the unsuspecting goon whose face eats said missile. This simple and universal truth handily illustrates the problem with Fortnite’s guided missiles, which were yanked in April . Today, Epic announced that they’re finally coming back.

Guided missiles were equal parts beloved and reviled during their brief...

After Swiping Lots Of <i>Fortnite </i>Dances From Black Artists, Epic Finally Teams Up With One

Fortnite has been a colossal success for publisher Epic Games, but Epic has not made a habit of sharing that notoriety with the predominantly black artists whose dances helped turn it into a global phenomenon. This has led to (for-now dropped) lawsuits from the likes of rapper 2 Milly and Fresh Prince actor Alfonso Ribeiro, both of whom created dances featured in the game. Now, Epic finally...

The Fortnite World Cup Is Worth Watching, Despite Its Flaws
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

Over the last two weekends, I’ve obsessively watched the Fortnite World Cup tournaments. I turn on the long broadcasts while cleaning the house or cooking, certainly tormenting my neighbors with hours of esports shoutcasting. It’s introducing me to new players and techniques, and it’s inspiring me to get better...

While I played Fortnite’s new limited-time mode, Air Royale, my colleague Cecilia looked over my shoulder and said, “This isn’t the game I used to play.” Air Royale barely feels like Fortnite, but it’s a lot of fun.

The new LTM showed up in today’s 8.40 patch. In it, 12 duos are put in Stormwing planes and try to shoot each other down, with one player steering and the other perched on the...
