Fortnite doesn’t currently have any rideable/drivable vehicles, but that is set to change soon, it seems. Fortnite’s in-game news feed today shows that a Shopping Cart vehicle is on the way. “Roll into battle alone or with a buddy,” reads its description. That suggests the cart will work both is Solo and Squads. We don’t know yet if you’ll be able to drive the cart or if it has any special attributes to help you on the battlefield. At the very least, it may give you the element of surprise, as seeing a cart whizz by is not something Fortnite players are used to.
Below is the image that shows Fortnite’s new shopping cart in all of its glory. Behold:
There is no word on when the Shopping Cart will be added to Fortnite, but Epic has a history of announcing items via the news feed and releasing them in short order. We’ll report back with more details on the timing and availability as soon as they’re announced.
While you have to wait a bit longer for the new Shopping Cart, Fortnite’s newest cosmetic items–the Brite Bomber outfit and the Rainbow Smash pickaxe, are available now from the in-game store. The Brite Bomber outfit costs 1,200 V-Bucks, while the Rainbow Smash axe goes for 1,500 V-Bucks.
