Fortnite's Port-a-Fort Will Give You Instant Protection in a Pickle

Plans can always change but as Epic Games has already prepared a promo video, it is likely that the new item is ready to go.

As the Port-a-Fort is now being teased in-game, we'd assumed it will be released this week, possibly alongside Week 8 Challenges. Deploying the item builds a huge fort in seconds that you can use to protect yourself from oncoming fire.

In the brief trailer, fans can see the Port-a-Fort in action. In the trailer, we see it used as a defensive weapon by a player who is being chased by two other people.

Building is a key component of Fortnite, but it's not so easy to do well-especially when the bullets start flying. Being a competent and quick builder is sometimes the difference between life and death in Fortnite, so this item should give less-skilled players a better chance at earning a Victory Royale.

In addition to its domination on the App Store, other markers of the popularity of Fortnite include how ESPN tried but failed to appeal to the game's massive player base, and the petition that girlfriends everywhere have started because Fortnite has stolen the attention of their boyfriends.

We don't yet know how rare the item will be and whether it will create random structures out of random resources.

Fortnite Mobile for iOS has made $15 million over its first three weeks on the App Store, representing further proof of the game's enormous popularity.

Fortnite is free to play on PC, Xbox one, PS4, and Mac iOS with an android releasing soon.
