Published

on

Fortnite’s v8.40 update is now live, and it brings a host of new skins, pickaxes, back bling, gliders and more that are set to be released in the game in the near future. Dataminers have already begun scouring through the game’s files to find them, so fans can get an early look at what’s to come.

The Fortnite v8.40 patch saw the reintroduction of one of the game’s most controversial items, with the X-4 Stormwing plane making it’s return to the game as part of the brand new Air Royale Limited Time Mode.

Also included were two new variants of the Infantry Rifle, alongside a number of bug and performance fixes that Epic Games hope will improve quality of life for fans of the popular battle royale title.

Planes are back in the Fortnite v8.40 update.

While a large number of Fortnite fans will be excited by what Epic Games have announced for this update, data miners have already started to sift through the update files in search of hints as to what could be taking place in Fortnite.

In the process, they have found a number of new cosmetic items that will be introduced to the game’s Item Shop in the near future, which are always a popular hit among fans who want to make their character stand out from the crowd.

While these items have been added to the game in the v8.40 update, there is no guarantee that they will ever make an appearance in the game, with Epic Games often choosing to hold back cosmetics and other items.

There is no official timeline for their release, but it’s likely that most of them will appear in the Item Shop over the course of the next week.

You can view all leaked cosmetics from the Fortnite v8.40 update below. Thanks to @lucas7yoshi_, @HYPEX, @xkleinmikex, @PXLPAT_YT, and @FireMonkeyFN for these leaks.

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.
