Fortnite adds new gear and brings back Solid Gold mode in new update


Always believe in your soul

Epic Games has rolled out a new update for some game that apparently a couple people are into, online-shooter Fortnite. The 5.30 update brings back fan-favourite mode Solid Gold, and also adds a new DLC pack to the store.

Solid Gold (and its new iteration, Solid Gold 50v50) is your standard island-hopping battle royale dust-up, except chests will only spawn Legendary weaponry, so its shouldn't be too long at all before you have your hands on something meaty with with to take out the opposition. Of course, the ruling works both ways, so watch your back, Jack.

A new weapon is also ready to wreak havoc, the Shockwave Grenade, a throwable bomb that emits a concussive blast, sending the enemy flying. Finally, a new DLC pack is now available in game. The "Ace" pack includes a sinister-but-sexy bodysuit, 600 V-Bucks, and a backpack to hold your gig flyers and copy of Catcher in the Rye. The kids still do that today, right?

Fortnite is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and iOS and Android devices.
