The Island from Chapter 2 has been flipped, uncovering a new Island and turning the page to Chapter 3. One must re-orient themselves after being flipped around, so here’s a Chapter 3 Season 1 Orientation! Consider this your guide to a new beginning of Fortnite Battle Royale.

The Places

Due to a particularly cold winter, the first thing you’ll notice about the Island is that the western half’s a wintry biome. Perhaps stop by the suburban Greasy Grove, the industrial Logjam Lumberyard, and other locales.

Like warmer weather? To the east are the tropics, with coastal keys, palm trees, and weathered sights to see. Although The Seven have outposts all throughout the Island, the tropics ...

Master of espionage (and definitely probably not a Life-Model Decoy), Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. sneaks onto the Island to root out Cube corruption. Defend the Island from the supernatural Cube threat with the new S.H.I.E.L.D. Set available in the Item Shop!

It's almost time to employ a new fighting strategy in the war against the Cubes. But before that, it's time now to decide the next item to bring into the war...

War Effort: Proximity Grenade Launcher vs. Flint-Knock Pistol

Fortnite Proximity Grenade Launcher vs. Flint-Knock Pistol

The war effort’s again taking a look back at the classics — putting forth two unconventional weapons for Loopers’ consideration. With the Proximity Grenade Launcher, launch grenades that go off by just being near someone. Or with the Flint-Knock Pistol, go flying back for extra evasiveness (and mobility) when you shoot it. 

Help the war effort decide which one to bring int...

Hey Creators,

Today we are launching the Support Device to all creators!

Our goal is for creators to be able to make amazing, high-quality content, and for our players to have the best experience possible. 

Part of a great experience is ensuring that other players are present and that matches are full. We’ve been looking into this area and seen fewer full matches than we’d expect. Some of these issues were bugs (and some have already been addressed), but others are a result of how we’re incentivizing creators.

The current pre-game HUD ‘Support Me’ feature has been in use for a while, and hasn’t proven itself. It doesn’t provide a consistent player experience across platforms, it isn’t part of the game world itself, and it's only fit for lobbies. That last point is particularly important, as it has ended up incentivising the use of lobbies, even when ...

A Nindo (Ninja Way) is a personal rule or promise to oneself that each Shinobi lives by. 

In NARUTO SHIPPUDEN you will often hear Naruto Uzumaki state:

“I’m not going to run away! I never go back on my word! That’s my Nindo: my Ninja way!”

Naruto overcame great obstacles by following his Nindo. Now, we are presenting you with a series of challenges - will you run away, or will you channel Naruto’s Nindo and walk away with in-game rewards (maybe even your very own Kurama Glider, the great and powerful nine-tailed beast!)

Starting at 04:00 AM ET on November 17 until 11:59 PM ET on November 21, players have the opportunity to complete The Nindo challenges to earn in-game rewards!  Fortnite Kurama Glider

“I never go back on my word. That’s my nindo, my ninja way!” - Naruto Uzumaki

Straight from the mind of Masashi Kishimoto, the much-loved characters of the anime series ‘NARUTO SHIPPUDEN’ arrive in Fortnite!

The wait is over 

Naruto Uzumaki, the number one most unpredictable ninja and Jinchuriki host of the all-powerful nine-tailed beast is ready — along with the rest of Team 7 — to take you through to a Victory Royale! 

Accompanying Naruto, the other members of Team 7:  
Sasuke Uchiha: Experienced with the impressive visual Jutsu of the Sharingan and one of the last surviving members of the Uchiha clan.

Sakura Haruno: Doe-eyed for Sasuke, she has taken her fiery inner-voice, deft control of chakra, and extreme strength to become one of the greatest Kunoichi.

Update 18.40 is here and the Island is destabilizing, two classic vehicles return, and Naruto Uzumaki and the rest of Team 7 arrive!   

War Effort: The Salvaged B.R.U.T.E.

The Cube Queen has deployed countless warriors, and corruption is spreading fast throughout the Island. To fight back, the war effort against the Cubes is producing some big guns of their own. 

Meet the Salvaged B.R.U.T.E. Battling the Sideways has left the war effort short on supplies, meaning this Salvaged B.R.U.T.E. has a stripped down armor hull with no overshield, making it easier for clever opponents to counter and dismantle. However, it comes battle-ready with combat effectiveness tailored for taking on wave after wave of Cube Monsters.

Of course, Salvaged B.R.U.T.E. Stations need Bars to get off the ground… lo...

The v18.40 update brings several device updates, new front end changes, matchmaking changes, and the new Accolade device!

Front-end Changes

New: Loading Screen Information

Another new change in 18.40 is to the loading screen, where the Creator name, Island name and the 3 information bullet points specified in the My Island settings will be displayed while a player is loading into an experience.  This is an opportunity to give players important information about your experience before they get there, so think carefully about what you want those information bullets to say to get maximum value out of them.

Update: Matchmaking Portal Change

Matchmaking Portals will now require the Creator to use the version number when linking to an island code of an island that has not gone through the Creator Submission process.  The portals will work as th...
