Take To The Skies With One Of Fortnite's Most Amazing Items Yet
Jetpacks have finally arrived in Fortnite.
Landing with Fortnite's 4.2 update - which has already started to roll out - the new limited-time legendary accessory can be picked up via treasure chests or through another item new to Fortnite, backpacks.
"Introducing a new item that’ll send you sky high: Jetpacks," teases the patch note description. "Jetpacks are part of a brand new item type that coming to Battle Royale called Backpacks. Not to be confused with Back Bling, Backpacks are strictly gameplay items and cannot be purchased as cosmetics. Backpacks will fill an inventory slot, just like a weapon or consumable and have a variety of uses."
Hit play on the video to see the biggest new games coming out in 2018...
Players using the jetpacks won't be able to stay in the air indefinitely, and more you fire the thrusters, the quicker you'll use up the fuel. This means they'll have to return to earth to automagically refill their fuel reserves until eventually fuel is entirely used up, and the jetpacks will be inoperable.
Keen players who jumped online early to try out the jetpack early also happened upon the Eye of the Storm Tracker, which is another Backpack item Epic had yet to talk about. They've now since been removed them, but expect them to pop up in another update soon.
Wondering what else is new? Here’s our picks of the best games out - or coming! - in 2018.
