With the eventful Season 5 coming to an end and the recent content drop featuring the Grappling Hook and more, Epic Games still has some tricks up their sleeve for Fortnite Battle Royale. The developer is teasing a new item, called Port-a-Fortress and it might even arrive before we head into Season 6. The legendary grenade, Port-a-Fortress, has an official description in the game’s newsfeed which reads:
Toss down the Port-a-Fortress and take defence to new heights
This new Legendary grenade not only spawns a single tower like the Port-a-Fort but instead an entire base, which sounds pretty epic if you ask me. At the time of writing the Port-a-Fortress Legendary grenade does not have an official release date. However, it is strongly suspected that it will arrive with update 5.5 before the end of Season 6.
Judging by the image from the game’s news feed below, the item should allow you to spawn a 3×3 fort. You can see the possible shape of the fort from the image as well. It is definitely a big upgrade from the 1×1 tower that spawned from the Port-a-Fort if this turns out to be the case. Port-a-Fortress should be able to provide some great cover for players or even entire teams fighting for that elusive win.
It remains to be seen exactly what the Port-a-Fortress building will look like. However, it is pretty great that Epic Games keeps dropping content for Fortnite so often. It will be exciting to see how players use this and what type of impact this will have on the game.
