Google pulls Fortnite from Play Store amid Apple lawsuit drama

The Epic Games versus Apple drama has gotten a bit more interesting as Google just pulled Fortnite mobile from its own app store.

Epic uses Apple’s own 1984 ad against it over Fortnite lawsuit

It's been a busy day for Apple and Epic Game. This morning, Epic rolled out a new direct payment feature in the iOS and Android versions of Fortnite.

Fortnite cars bug is causing eliminations and players aren’t happy

Fortnite seems to be experiencing a bug involving cars, which isn't surprising considering that they were just added to the game days ago. Players who have been with the battle royale game for a while have dealt with their fair share of bugs, many of which are minor and some of which are even beneficial (assuming you don't get banned for exploiting them). Then there are the death bugs -- they are, quite obviously, a big problem.

Fortnite finally adds Atlantis POI: What players should know

Epic has added the fabled 'Atlantis' point of interest to Fortnite, though that isn't its official name. It seems 'Atlantis' was used as a codename for the actual destination, which is called Coral Castle. The name fits in with the other naming conventions used in the game, making it a bit more unique than the arguably generic 'Atlantis' moniker.
