Fortnite V5.41 Update Out Now, Includes Port-a-Fortress and New Spiky Stadium

This new stadium's a bit of a prick.

Fancy throwing down a stadium filled with spiky death traps in Fortnite? Well now that twisted dream is a reality, as the Fortnite V5.41 update has released today on September 18, introducing the new Spiky Stadium.

Check out a screenshot of the new Spiky Stadium just below, which looks like something out of the Saw movie franchise. This is a brand new consumable item, available right now thanks to Fortnite V5.41, but it's only available in the Playground mode, which is basically a practice mode for your squad.

According to the full patch notes on the Epic Games website, the Port-a-Fortress is now available in Battle Royale. This item does what it says on the tin, letting you throw down a bigger, better version of the Port-a-Fort item.

Fortnite Update V5.41 Patch Notes

He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
