Fortnite: Season 9 could bring back the mechs, already sparking controversy


Fortnite is heading towards the end of Season 8, which should also introduce the news present in Season 9, among which a particular one that is already arousing some controversy in the community of players, or the return of the mechs.

After Carnage in the Battle Pass and Season 8 Chapter 2: Monsters of the Cube, Viceverso and other news, possible information on the contents of Season 9 begins to leak, with the leaker HypeXa reporting the possibility of the return of the mechs, or the fighting robots of Fortnite which have had a rather mixed reception.

Initially introduced in Season X, B.R.U.T.E. , as combat mechs are called in Fortnite, they are bipedal vehicles with considerable power. Although they initially met a lot of enthusiasm, their power soon generated balance problems in the clashes, which led some of the public to repudiate them, prompting their elimination by Epic Games.

The possible return in Season 9 is therefore a bit doubtful, but it could be accompanied by a general reworking of the balance in order to be welcomed in a better way. According to reports from the leakers HypeX and Shiina, usually quite reliable, with the arrival of the mechs at the end of Season 8 other novelties should also arrive, a robot-style voice modification effect for voice chat, new specific emotes, the possibility to float on water and better loading effects.

We are therefore awaiting any information on this issue, considering that these are only rumors for the moment.

Fortnite’s The Walking Dead crossover returns with Rick Grimes

The Fortnitemares Halloween event is in full swing over in Epic’s battle royale phenomenon – and it’s just added a new character to the Fortnite The Walking Dead crossover in the form of bearded Sheriff Rick Grimes, along with the return of Daryl and Michonne.

Fortnite is getting well-known for its crazy crossovers, like how Marvel’s Carnage is the ultimate reward of the Season 8 battle pass – but in this case, it’s revisiting a tie-in from last year with a brand new character. The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon and Michonne appeared in the game last December, but at the time it seemed a little odd that the crossover would leave out the show’s central character Rick Grimes.

Epic finally seems to have noticed that, as it’s brought back its The Walking Dead crossover with Rick finally playable as of today. Rick Grimes costs 1500 V-Bucks on his own, with an alternate jacketed skin, or the bundle with all his gear – walker club, backpack, and crashing satellite glider (!) – is currently on sale for 1900, with a usual price of 2800.

Daryl and Michonne’s packs are also back, either separately for 1800 V-Bucks – which includes an alternate outfit and a special melee weapon for each – or as a bundle with both that’s currently on sale for 2500. Sadly, there is no bundle for the entire The Walking Dead crossover right now.

He’s shown us what it takes to go through all walks of life.. and afterlife. 

Grab the Rick Grimes Outfit available now in the Shop!

The Walking Dead as a franchise can go either way in games – for every genre-defining adventure there’s a terrible multiplayer game. Fortnite seems a pretty safe bet at least.
