The absurdity of Fortnite iPhones on eBay

The absurdity of Fortnite iPhones on eBay

A whole bunch of iPhone and iPad devices were listed on eBay in the past several days with one key feature: Fortnite. In the wake of the Apple / Epic Games battle over in-game purchases, Apple's effectively banned Epic Games and the games they've created from appearing on MacOS and iOS devices for the foreseeable future. The ban effects the app stores that'd normally distribute said games - games like Fortnite.

Fortnite teams with Marvel again for Chapter 2, Season 4

Fortnite teams with Marvel again for Chapter 2, Season 4

Fortnite has been part of a ton of crossovers ever since it rocketed to popularity a couple of years ago, and one of its oldest (and most frequent) crossover buddies is Marvel. Marvel was at the center of one of Fortnite's earliest crossovers, which let fans play as Thanos and wield the Infinity Gauntlet in a promotion for Avengers: Infinity War. Since then, we've seen Marvel and Fortnite team up a couple of times, usually to promote a new movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

#FreeFortnite Cup is an unsubtle jab at Apple

#FreeFortnite Cup is an unsubtle jab at Apple

No, Fortnite isn't going to be free for just one day since the game is free-to-play anyway. Epic Games is, instead, organizing what initially sounds like a celebration but is unambiguously its way of rallying sympathy and support in its fight against Apple. And, of course, it's offering up rewards, both in-game and real-world that will proudly display not only gamers' skills in the game but their disdain for Apple's App Store policies.

Fortnite x Marvel leak all but confirms Season 4 plan (plus Midas fish)

Just days after a known data-miner claimed that Fortnite may get a full and complete Marvel universe crossover in Season 4, a streamer who has a secret source that dropped all of the Season 3 details before release is back with (alleged) confirmation of this plan. According to a new video from the streamer, Epic has indeed teamed up with Marvel for a superhero (and villain) takeover of the battle royale island, plus there's a mention of Midas fish.

Hitman 3 will be an Epic Store exclusive, but it isn’t all bad news

Hitman 3 will be an Epic Store exclusive, but it isn’t all bad news

The original HITMAN game will be free to keep for all users of the Epic Games Store as of August 27th. That's just so long as you claim the game (with the tap of a button) before September 3, 2020. Hitman 3 will also be released very soon... as an Epic Games Store exclusive. That means it won't be available to purchase or download anywhere else*, for the foreseeable future.

iPhones with Fortnite installed up on eBay for thousands of dollars

iPhones with Fortnite installed up on eBay for thousands of dollars

The drama between Epic Games and Apple over Fortnite and App Store policies hasn't even reached the court yet but there are already many casualties. As always, the ones that get crushed in between when giants collide are the users who now have no way of installing the popular game on their iPhones. If you already installed Fornite before and removed it, there's still a way to get it back. If you haven't installed the game yet ever, you probably shouldn't be looking at eBay listings for used iPhones that have the game installed.

Fortnite x Marvel crossover may be planned for Season 4

It seems almost inevitable at this point that Fortnite will get a proper crossover with a superhero universe given how many related characters we've seen over the past couple of seasons. Players had access to Deadpool last season, Aquaman this season, and there's a rumor that we'll see Wolverine next month. A new tip suggests this may be more than a single-skin offering, however, instead representing a complete Marvel crossover.

Fortnite Wolverine skin plan leaks, but one big mystery remains

We've seen multiple Fortnite tie-ins with Marvel and DC superheroes, the latest being Deadpool and Aquaman. This appears to be something of a trend for the company at this point, leaving fans to wonder whether we'll see yet another superhero as the secret Battle Pass skin -- something some fans have grown weary of. Despite the repeat nature of Epic's superhero crossovers, it seems the company isn't yet ready to move on to something else.

Apple, Epic fight is coming to the court of public opinion

Apple, Epic fight is coming to the court of public opinion

When Epic Games blasted Google last year over its revenue cut for Play Store apps, its CEO Tim Sweeney pretty much conceded that Apple deserved its 30% share because of the work it puts into its App Store. The events of the past few days, however, suggests that Epic Games may have actually had a different opinion as it set off a sequence of events that now includes not one but two lawsuits. Epic, however, isn't content to stop there and the two's bickering is already going beyond legal, technical, or even financial grounds.

Facebook has joined Fortnite developer Epic Games in criticizing Apple over its App Store payments cut, calling out the iPhone-maker as it launches a new events service.
