It seems like Epic has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into Fortnite: Battle Royale but to be fair - so far, it is working. Unlike dancing bombs and flying rockets, the latest announced item is slightly more on the defensive side.

The grenade seems to be pretty self explanatory - you chuck it and you get a fort. It will do wonders for Fortnite players who tend to get lazy when it's time to build things, such as myself.

It'll be fun seeing what sort of flavours Epic goes for, because we can already see a plethora of Port-a-Fort types. Fans of Fortnite: Battle Royale have come up with some ridiculous fort designs and besides - more than a few games end up on proverbial rooftops.

Different rarities spawning different types of Fortnite structures makes sense as well. It seems easy enough to implement as well, although be advised that this is still speculation at the moment. You can expect the first phase of Port-a-Fort Epic to be as simple as possible.

As for when to expect Port-a-Forts, Epic only said 'Coming Soon'. They tend to be true to their word, so it really should be soon. They did make a tiny slip with Jetpacks, which are still nowhere to be seen, but we should see them soon enough as well.

Epic also promised Fortnite will be getting video replays in one of the future updates, ensuring the game's content is as cinematic as its owner, or in this case the director, is camera savvy. With a professional set of tools, the hilarity that is Fortnite is a gift that keeps on giving.

Battle Pass owners have recently received the Week 7 set of challenges, which confirmed most of Fortnite's earlier leaks, like Gnomes and Vending Machines. In general, the game is on such a stellar upwards trajectory that it's hard even imagining this trend stopping.

Fortnite: Battle Royale has already conquered iOS devices as well, raking in as much as $15 million on Apple's platform alone, and with its Android launch pending, all indeed seems rosy in Epic's back yard.
