Eye of the Storm Tracker

June 5, 2018

Bobby BoJanglles, a popular YouTuber, has uncovered a new backpack that was released early by accident: the Eye of the Storm Tracker.
It takes up a whole inventory slot, but when you have it in you can see a second circle on your map that shows you where the storm is going to end up.
Super useful, we hope it comes back to Fortnite soon.

Confirmed: Fortnite coming to Nintendo Switch!

Fortnite Nintendo Switch

We have learned that Fortnite is coming to Nintendo Switch! A tweet by @AAMARMO on Twitter shows a photo of an internal E3 document:

The photo above was posted on 4chan and found by @AAMARMO. Kotaku has heard from 2 different sources that this is, in fact, true.

We image the playing experience would be similar to the iOS version, but with vastly improved controls due to the Switch’s analog controllers.
