Epic Games is super sorry about all the Fortnite downtime earlier this month, so sorry it spent 11 seconds talking about it in its latest dev video, which is less time that the rockin’ video intro took. The studio also says that it’s keeping an eye on weapon swapping changes (it already rolled back some of them) and that it’s still working on swap animations and tinkering on various quality-of-life issues, including trap identification.
Meanwhile, several sites are covering what they believe to be leaks about the game’s Week 10 Challenges; players are looking at seven new weeklies, among them headshot damage counts, chest-searching in multiple named locations, and skydiving through floating rings. Can’t say as I’ve ever had a quest to go skydiving in an MMO before.
Finally, ESPN has a piece up on popular streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, whose Vegas event at the new Luxor e-sports arena charged competitors $75 to come try to kill him (winners took home $2500). E-sports are getting weirder.
