Fortnite gets a pop-up fort with the new Port-a-Fort

Update: The pop-up fort in Fortnite is now live.

The new item isn’t going live tomorrow alongside Fortnite’s Week 8 challenges as we assumed. Instead it went live in a different update just now. Expect a short period of downtime.

Epic Games revealed the news in a tweet:

Original Story: Don’t have enough resources or just can’t be arsed to build a quick defensive fort? It looks like the Port-a-Fort is just for you.

Fortnite’s newest gadget is due “soon” and looks to be a portable fort that pops up when thrown to the ground.

Sounds great for emergencies if you don’t have enough resources to quickly build when under enemy fire. It’s not a hastily knocked together fort, either. This bad boy is big and strong.

Here’s the first video of it in action:

As the Port-a-Fort is currently being teased in-game, we’d assumed it will be released this week, possibly alongside Week 8 Challenges.

Those Week 8 Challenges leaked early so you have no excuse not read up and be prepared for them kicking off this Thursday. If you need help with visiting three Taco Shops in the same match or searching between three boats we’ve got you covered.

If you’re still slogging away at Week 7 Challenges we’re all over that too, with a guide to all the laughing hidden gnomes and the ridiculously easy Retail Row treasure map location.

We’re nice like that.
