Fortnite’s Rifts have been temporarily disabled

For the past couple of seasons, Epic has implemented interesting movement items to Fortnite. Last season, it was Hop Rocks, and this season, it's Rifts, which send you up into the sky and allow you to glide back down to the ground. Those Rifts are handy for a couple of reasons, as they can allow you to escape a losing confrontation or cover a lot of ground on the map if you need to catch up with the circle.

New Fortnite patch adds Heavy Sniper and two new game modes

We've got another somewhat small Fortnite update landing today, but the new weapon it adds could very well be a terror to encounter on the battlefield.

Fortnite Android performance issues addressed by Epic

Fortnite's Android launch has been a little bit messy thus far. First, we learned that the game wouldn't be available on the Google Play Store, then it was the beta's brief-but-still-kinda-weird exclusivity period on Samsung devices. Now, it seems that a large number of players are experiencing poor performance, which is obviously a pretty frustrating development.

Fortnite on Android a dangerous slippery slope

It started innocently enough. Android users are no stranger to iOS getting first dibs on apps and games, as long as they eventually get their share.

Fortnite Android beta comes to non-Samsung phones, but invite still needed

It's been less than a week since Samsung announced that Fortnite for Android would be exclusive to its Galaxy devices, but that limited exclusivity is already over.

Fortnite on Android: Even Google announces it’s not on Play Store

By now, anyone who has even the slightest interest in Fortnite knows that it's finally coming to Android. The latest news has been about how Epic Games is taking the unique stance of keeping it off the Google Play Store and instead requiring users to download the game's APK directly off their website.

Fortnite Android modders beware: Epic can ban phones forever

Fortnite Mobile on Android: here is how it will play out

Just as battle royale games have left a deep mark in the PC gaming market, it is now also poised to change the face of mobile gaming, especially after the mobile launch of the two biggest titles in that genre. Well, one and a half. Fortnite is still due to launch on Android alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
