Arabic Language Support for Fortnite is Here!

Published

on

With the launch of Season 9 in Fortnite, Epic Games announced that they will be supporting the Arabic language throughout Fortnite. That means no matter where you choose to drop in Battle Royale, what mission you choose in Save the World, or how you plan to build in Creative you’ll have the ability to experience it in Arabic.

The Player Support team will be fully prepared to assist in Arabic with account or Fortnite related issues. We’ll be listening too – if you have feedback to share our Arabic social media channels will be coming online around this period as well.

What about Middle East Servers?

This is an area Epic Games is focused on finding a solution for as well, and we hear your calls for dedicated Middle East server support. There is still a few months from having services come online and hope to provide a more meaningful update on server support before then. In the meantime, they are still trying to provide any additional improvements they can for players in Fortnite playing from that region.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

on

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.

The v20.20 Fortnite Creative update adds the new Video Player, Water, and VFX Devices! Along with new devices, Epic has also added some additional Prefabs, Galleries and a brand new island to create on.

Prop Mover

After being unintentionally added in the v20.10 update, the Prop Mover device has now been officially implemented into the game. If you’re using the Prop Mover, understand that you might be asked to remove it from your map. For example: you’re featured in the Hub but the Prop Mover is causing performance issues. Additionally, some features that the Prop Mover currently has may change over time.

New: Video Player

All creators will now have access to the Video Player device, previously known as the Llamatron, which they can use to broadcast a set of preloaded music videos from xDogged. Creators can use just one or string them together for a totally unique music-led island experience.

New: Water Device

Creators can modulate the water level within a volume and allow for players to swim, use marine vehicle travel, as well as placement of fishing areas. This device could also be used to make oceans, beaches, swimming pools, sewers, lakes, and even floods.

New: VFX Creator

The new VFX Creator device provides Creators with a set of tools to make different FX. Creators can select a sprite and apply a variety of parameters to it to create divergent effects.

Fortnite VFX Device

Battle Royale – Items and Features

  • Titan Tanks
  • Mounted Artillery Cannon
  • Mounted Anti-Vehicle Turret

Other Feature Updates

New: Career Tracker

The new Career Tracker provides creators the ability to track more stats for players by adding these options to the Save Point Device. To enable the new Career Tracker, Creators will need to update to the Save Point Device and the scoreboard HUD.  A quick way of updating the scoreboard HUD is by cloning the scoreboard and changing it to Career. Once updated, players will be able to view career scores in the new Career Tab.

Update: Switch Device

The following new device skins for the Switch Device have been added:

  • Checkbox
  • Ancient Lever
  • Circuit Breaker
  • Added 5 New Prefabs
    – 2 Gas Station Prefabs
    – 3 Chonker’s Speedway Prefabs
  • Added 5 New Galleries
    – 1 Gas Station Gallery
    – 4 Chonker’s Speedway Galleries

Island Update

Experience Greasy Grove in this fully recreated POI Island that you can further customize and build upon.

Known issue: The thermometer memory won’t display when a creator first loads into the POI. The workaround is to leave the island and enter in again. This should resolve the thermometer issue.
