I’ve said it before — if not here, somewhere — but no game does in-game events like Fortnite does. This week, we got the Devourer of Worlds event, which put players up against Galactus, who could probably fit the entire Battle Royale island in the palm of his hand. It put players in the driver’s seat of the Battle Bus (the thing you drop from at the start of the match) for the first time ever, and it felt like a mix of Star Fox and Star Wars (Fox Wars? Star Star? It’s hard to make this portmanteau work…).
In any case, it was fantastic and the post-event cinematic confirmed that the game is a simulation of some kind, which is always fun. I wish more gaming companies would do events like Fortnite does.
But enough about that. We’re here to Queue.
I know it’s been a little while since I’ve chatted about Fortnite, but the game is, in fact, still chugging along. In fact, Season 10 starts today (well, not today as of this writing, but today as of you reading this). This season looks to be taking things back to before the big meteor event that seems to have started Fortnite’s “big event” moments and hype trains. For me — someone who started shortly after the meteor hit — this means I will likely get to check out Dusty Depot, the site destroyed by the meteor. I may not play as much as I used to, but it’s still fun to watch this unfold.
Also, there was a giant mech vs. giant monster fight across the map recently and that’s pretty dope.
Anyhow, let’s Queue.
