Epic Games release MASSIVE Battle Royale patch

Epic Games release MASSIVE Battle Royale patch

Vending machines are coming to Fortnite's Battle Royale mode, Epic Games announced on Wednesday.

The addition of Vending Machines to Fortnite follows the game's most recent update, which saw the inclusion of devastating new weaponry like guided missiles, new battle modes, graphical updates and bug fixes. As you can imagine then, finding brick, building a ton of walls, and locating the hidden gnome can be pretty tricky in the middle of somewhere like Pleasant Park or Tilted Towers, so you may have some issues with this one.

Explaining the new feature, Epic Games said: "Starting this week, we are doing things a little differently". The machines will offer three different items of that rarity, but you will have to spend a specific type of material (Wood, Stone or Metal) in order to purchase each item.

Once they arrive in-game, vending machines will allow players to exchange materials they've collected in the match for weapons and items of a randomly selected rarity.

While it may not show off much in the way of gameplay, this reveal trailer for "narrative-driven puzzler" The Spectrum Retreat has the kind of unsettling atmosphere that looks like it could easily pull you in.

Items purchased at a Common vending machine will cost 100 materials, Uncommon will cost 200, Rare will cost 300, Epic will cost 400 and Legendary will cost 500 materials. Chalk it up to luck though, hunting down vending machines is a risky tactic as other players will be drawn to them as well.

That's all we know about Fortnite's Vending Machines so far, but we'll update this guide as more details emerge. Can you find them all? The vending machine will display one at a time and slowly rotate through them.

The 3.4 content update is now out on mobile, Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
