  • Fortnite is already making millions on mobile as it tops the iOS charts

Typically, players must harvest resources to use as makeshift structures, but a new item, labeled "coming soon", looks to change all that.

"New portable fort sprouts a quick defensive position upon impact".

News broke earlier that Epic Games was planning to add yet another unique item to Fortnite in the form of the Port-a-Fort. It looks like the Port-a-Fort is just for you. The game usually goes down for maintenance on Thursdays so we probably have to wait until then before the update hits.

If the Port-a-Fort does operate in the way we think it does, it will be interesting to see the rarity and if it will in fact be a grenade.

At the time of writing, Fortnite is the highest grossing application on iOS, having overtaken mobile titans such as Clash Royale and Candy Crush Saga.

It's so game-changing, in fact, that Epic has given the throwable its own mini trailer, which you can check out below.

In a tweet shared after the one above, Epic Games revealed that Port-a-Fort will be arriving in the game on April 11 when the company releases the next update.

After all, the Fortnite development team has temporarily removed weapons and items in the past, like the Boogie Bomb and the SMG, so it will likely do the same to address any potential balancing issues the Port-a-Fort may introduce to the game. Something we are still waiting on is the inclusion of the Jet Pack which was introduced a while back but has since been delayed to work on issues with it.
