New Fortnite Item Port-a-Fort Teased For PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mobile

Forting 'ell.


Fortnite is adding new weapons and items all the time, and developer Epic has now teased another new addition. Named the Port-a-Fort, the upcoming item "sprouts a quick defensive position upon impact."

The game's menu says the new feature is coming soon, though we don't yet know precisely when or how it works. Building is a key part of Fortnite, but is something that some players find tricky, so the Port-a-Fort sounds as if it will help those players. Take a look at our Fortnite building guide for more on how to make the best bases and more.

All will likely be revealed soon, since Fortnite is updated frequently with new challenges and items. Fortnite's Week 7 challenges include two in particular that will require either some legwork on your part or a guide to specific locations, while the rest primarily deal with doing things in specific locations or getting access to the right types of weapons. It's also not too late to go back and complete those from previous weeks; Battle Pass owners have the remainder of April to finish all of Season 3's Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges. Earn the Battle Stars for completing challenges, and you'll more quickly level up the Battle Pass and earn its various rewards.

Our Fortnite: Battle Royale review went live just recently. Critic Michael Higham enjoyed the multiplayer title and awarded it an 8/10. "While there are several moving parts in the game's ecosystem, Fortnite's biggest accomplishment is in how it seamlessly merges a number of simple mechanics to create a distinguishable battle royale game," he wrote. "What looks to be a straightforward building system steadily escalates to an elaborate display of tactical prowess. As the saying goes: It's easy to learn, hard to master. Although a few shortcomings in the map design eventually surface and fatigue in looting can set in, Fortnite rarely fails at challenging you in unexpected ways, resulting in something more than just another typical last-person-standing shooter."
