Deadpool Now Has a Skiing Minigame in Fortnite Battle Royale

Down the slopes, avoiding muderous bananas.

You can play as Deadpool in Fortnite Battle Royale, but now in a slightly less conventional way. With the latest patch for Battle Royale, you can now play a special Deadpool minigame in the Battle Royale's menu sections.

This is located in Deadpool's hideout, which was originally found in the Battle Royale menus back when the current season launched earlier this year in February 2020. If you now go to Deadpool's hideout with patch 12.50 installed, you can play the skiing minigame seen below, with Deadpool's hideout completely submerged in water (for some reason).

If you clicked on Deadpool's computer before this patch was installed, you would've been able to review challenges relating to Marvel's antihero. Now, there's an icon you can click on the left side of Deadpool's computer, to play this small weird skiing game.

In this minigame, you need to make it as far as possible down a mountain as Deadpool on skis. There are trees to avoid, ramps to jump over, and murderous Peely bananas trying to tear Deadpool apart. It's a bit simplistic, but briefly entertaining minigame from Epic.

Elsewhere in patch 12.50 for Fortnite, Risky Reels has finally become a named point of interest on the map. You can now emote after winning a Battle Royale match on mobile, and video playback has been enabled on Android, among other things.

This all arrives on the back of Fortnite's new concurrent player record over the past weekend. With the Travis Scott 'Astronomical' event, Fortnite Battle Royale soared past 12.3 million concurrent players on all platforms around the world, an absolutely, well, astronomical figure.
