Fortnite Confirms Line Of Nerf Blasters, Monopoly Board Game
Fortnite’s supreme popularity in the realm of gaming has been well-established for a while now, so much so the title has begun putting out a hefty assortment of updates as well as merchandise to keep fans stocked with content. We’ve seen the storm begin to brew with offerings such as Fortnite Funko Pop! figures, and now the battle royale game is looking to overtake other forms of entertainment with its recently confirmed partnership with toy company Hasbro.
As part of the collaboration, Fortnite will see itself represented with a line of officially licensed Nerf blasters. This will likely result in the game’s most popular weapons getting a foam-firing makeover, possibly even including toy versions of a few in-game items. We use the term “likely” as there wasn’t confirmation regarding which firearms might make the cut, but Hasbro did issue the release window of 2019.
Following emerging reports, Epic Games also confirmed plans to release a Fortnite Monopoly game themed around locales of the game’s decorated island. A battle of a different sort looks to be on the table (literally) for this adventure, having players traverse the board and take over landmarks in effort to be the last player standing. Unlike the jointly-announced Nerf blasters, a full look at Fortnite Monopoly has been unveiled online, with Epic’s Wes Phillips revealing the board game in the post above.
Fortnite Monopoly debuts in major outlets on October 1st. Fortnite itself is now available for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
