This Week In Fortnite News: Morty Joins The Battle, Totally Not Among Us, And Wonder Woman
Fortnite gets a controversial new mode and adds a ton of different characters to the mix.
With the introduction of a controversial new mode and the introduction of several highly requested characters to the game, it’s been a pretty big week for Fortnite news. It’ll be interesting to see how Epic reacts to the negative reception to the Imposters mode, but at least we’ll have Morty to look forward to while we wait.
Morty Gets Schwifty
Easily the most exciting bit of Fortnite news this week is the near-confirmation that Morty will be joining Rick on the island. This was initially leaked early in the week, with Morty’s character model and pickaxe being found in the game’s files, but some leakers have been able to find his full set, basically confirming without a doubt that he’ll be arriving. According to known Fortnite leaker HYPEX, you can expect to see Morty in the next day or so.
Fortnite Borrows Another Great Idea
It’s not all good news this week, sadly. Epic decided to introduce a mode called Imposters, and it’s basically just Fortnite’s take on Among Us. The blatant copying is a shame as it is, but Inner Sloth has always been pretty keen to collaborate with pretty much anyone, so the opportunity would have been there if Epic wanted to. It’s a bit shameless in how much of a copy it is too, but the reception has been pretty positive from those who have played it.
Wonder Woman Completes The Main Justice League Trio
Batman has been in Fortnite for quite some time now and was joined by Superman in this season, but now the Justice League trio is finally complete, as Wonder Woman has also joined the island. Much like the other superheroes in Fortnite, the version we can see here is very clearly based more on the comics than the mothers, which is fine by us. Gamers were also given the chance to win Diana early through a special cup, so congrats if you managed to.
Potential Open-World RPG Found In Fortnite’s Files
Here’s a potentially exciting bit of news – Fortnite dataminers have managed to find evidence of an open-world RPG within the game’s files. The main bit of evidence comes from the above image, which was found in the game and later removed by Epic. The image shows four iconic Fortnite characters all lined up as if they’re in an RPG party. They’ve also got weirdly proportioned bodies, implying that it’s a separate mode from the main game. Only time will tell, but it’s looking likely.
Chris Hemsworth Might Be Joining Fortnite, But Not In The Way You’d Expect
The last bit of Fortnite news this week is a weird one. When you hear that Chris Hemsworth might be added to Fortnite, you probably fairly assume that the MCU’s Thor will be added to the game, or one of his many other famous roles. However, a model for Tyler Rake, from the Netflix movie Extraction, was found in the game, who is a character played by Hemsworth. Not the character we’d go for, but I guess that’s the Fortnite luck of the draw for you.
