After much teasing Epic have unleashed meteor showers within Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode with players warned about death from above via an emergency broadcast system. The fiery rocks are plummeting to earth and destroying trees and structures, but their purpose remains a mystery.
However, a recent tweet from the Fortnite account included this image:
That appears to be a stylised imaged of a comet and a superhero character. One theory doing the rounds is that players will be granted super powers by the meteors, or perhaps by the comet which has been visible in the sky of Fornite for weeks and is slowly getting closer. We expect all to be revealed in the next few days.
Fortnite has recently become the largest free-to-play game ever on PlayStation 4.
