Fortnite is receiving an update that will bring drivable cars to the game later this week. The Joy Ride update will land tomorrow, on Wednesday, August 5. The official Fortnite Twitter account has been teasing the update, giving us a glimpse at the type of cars we can expect to arrive in tomorrow's update. So far we've seen a sports car that looks a bit like a Hot Wheels toy called the "Whiplash" and a bulky truck known as the "Mudflap." User Jonathan287 collected all of the in-game posters on Reddit - their collage includes two new vehicles called the Bear and the Prevalent. Further details about how the cars will function in-game are yet to be revealed.
Atlantis recently surfaced in Fortnite as the water level has been draining from the map in Chapter 2: Season 3, resulting in a new area known as Coral Castle. We also recently learned that Fortnite will receive special Marvel's Avengers crossover items, tied to the game's upcoming beta. PS4 and Xbox One players who finish the Marvel's Avengers beta will receive a pair of Hulk Smashers which replace the player's pickaxe in-game. The Hulk Smashers will also feature an alternate style which homages Iron Man's Hulkbuster armour. [poilib element="accentDivider"] Jordan Oloman is a freelance writer for IGN. Follow him on Twitter.
