Epic Games is always looking for different ways to improve Fortnite Battle Royale. The v21.10 patch is huge and added many new things to the game. The game developer also used it to release gameplay and map changes.
Fortnite leakers have found plenty of additional files in the game’s data that reveal Epic Games’ plans for the future of the game. The most recent Fortnite leak claims that skateboards will be coming to Fortnite Battle Royale! It’s very interesting and no doubt that this type of vehicle would be perfect for the theme of Chapter 3 Season 3.
Note: The developers haven’t revealed any official information about this. Thus, players should take the following information with a grain of salt.
Fortnite players will be able to use skateboards in the future
Since the release of Chapter 1 Season 4, Epic Games have started experimenting with different types of vehicles. Some of them were very simple, like Shopping Carts, while some of them were considered overpowered, like the BRUTE Mech in Season X.
It finally looks like the game developer has struck a healthy balance when it comes to vehicles, as Chapter 3 didn’t have too many overpowered ones.
HYPEX, the most popular Fortnite leaker, recently revealed that skateboards are coming to the video game. The leaker claims that Epic Games recently started working on this new vehicle, which will be perfect for the current season.
Skateboards would be a fun addition to the game, no doubt. Plus, the season is all about relaxation and vibe, so adding skateboards just makes sense.
The physics of skating will be similar to gliding. When players are skating downhill they will move much faster, while uphill will slow them down. Although there are no further details yet, skateboards could be similar to shopping carts.
Another vehicle is coming to Fortnite
Besides skateboarding, Epic Games can also add rollerstakes to Fortnite Battle Royale. Given the leaked allegations there will be a new slip mechanic, this could be a new item. After all, there is also a loading screen with roller skates.
Just a week ago, many Fortnite leakers discovered that Epic Games was also working on motorcycles. Although it seems that this vehicle is still in an early stage of development, it will not be surprising if it is released during the current season.
HYPEX has confirmed that the game developer has updated this vehicle to the latest update, which means there has been some progress.
Chapter 3 Season 3 is set to end in mid-September, which means it will be one of the longest Fortnite seasons ever. All of these leaks indicate that Epic Games is working hard to ensure players stay entertained over the summer by releasing new content.
