Fortnite's New Port-a-Fortress Item is Coming Soon to Battle Royale

It's over 9000! (health points, probably)

Few things are certain in life. There's death, taxes, and new Fortnite Battle Royale tools coming to the game very soon.

The new item in question for Fortnite Battle Royale players this week is the 'Port-a-Fortress' item, which looks to be an upgraded version of the existing Port-a-Fort. We don't yet have a final release date for the new item, but the 'News' screen below for Fortnite players indicates that it will likely be arriving this week.

"Toss down the Port-a-Fortress and take defense to new heights," the update screen for the item reads. This indicates that the new fortress will be higher, and generally bigger, than the Port-a-Fort, which itself was only introduced to Battle Royale earlier this year in April.

Right now there's not a huge amount of information to go on for the upcoming Port-a-Fortress item, but we'll be reporting on any further details for the item as soon as they're revealed. Speaking of upoming things for Battle Royale, you can check out our guide on Fortnite Season 6, which should be less than a week away from launching.

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.
