Fortnite has announced the Reboot van in Battle Royale Dev Update #13.
The Reboot Van might be one of the most-leaked additions in the history of Fortnite. We received a ton of information thanks to dataminers mining the game files, and it was only a matter of time before Epic finally announced its arrival.
Well, today, the Dev Update #13 released, telling players about the Reboot Van coming in the next update.
A respawn mechanic is welcome news to almost anyone in the Fortnite community. Apex Legends was the first battle royale game to include a respawn system, and news of one coming to Fortnite started swirling only days later.
There was one area where the developers were silent, however: reverting the recent changes made to the Fortnite ruleset.
The silence is deafening at this point - especially for a company that is notorious tuned-into the community feedback.
Epic has to address this problem eventually. Most of the player base wants a revert, but it's unclear if we're ever going to get it.
