New week, new Fortnite update. This time, new mechanics are getting introduced to the game, as well as some technical improvements and more.
The 8.30 update, which is now live on all formats, introduced the Reboot Van and Reboot Cards to the game. The van allows a squad member who has been defeated to come back to life.
The only thing that must be done is recovering his or her Reboot Card and bring to the van, but don’t expect to be able to do this repeatedly, as the Reboot Van comes with a cooldown timer.
The update also introduces the Buccaneer’s Bounty Event, a set of daily new LTMs that allow players to collect treasures by completing challenges. The Fly Explosives LTM has also been added, featuring only explosive weapons.
The new update also introduces some tweaks specific to the iOS and Android versions, such as improved controller support and more. You can check out the full patch notes by going here.
Fortnite is now available on iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch as well as on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
