    New Fortnite Patch Reduces Install Size by 60GB

    Shrunk to about a third of its current install size.

    According to the Fortnite Status Twitter account, the patch that was released today for Fortnite will have a significant impact on the game's install size. Patch v14.40 will be a larger than normal update (27GB), but the team says that this is a necessary evil in order to shrink the overall game size down by 60GB!

    Apple is Counter-Suing Epic Games

    Get your popcorn ready.

    On Tuesday, Apple filed a countersuit against Epic Games, accusing them of financial damages due to the bypassing of the 30% commissions that Apple takes from app developers. According to the court filing (PDF) Apple is accusing Epic of engaging in "self-help and subterfuge." They go on to say that "Epic sent a Trojan horse to the App Store," that being an update to Fortnite that allowed Epic "to bypass Apple's app review process and...

    Apple Terminates Epic Games Developer Account

    This is not a termination of accounts related to Unreal Engine devs.

    Today, Apple followed through with part of their threat that they would terminate Epic Games' developer account. This is not the same as their threat to terminate the accounts of all Unreal Engine developers. That specific case was shot down in court earlier this week. However, that ruling still left the door open for Apple to terminate the account specifically related to Epic Games, the one used by Fortnite.

  • In First Hearing, Apple Wins Right to Remove Fortnite from Store but Not Unreal Engine

    The first battle in a long war has reached its conclusion.

    This past week, Epic had filed for a temporary restraining order in order to prevent Apple from terminating all Epic developer accounts. This was a reactionary response from Apple after Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple for kicking Fortnite from the App Store when Epic decided they did not want to play by the rules.

    This ban against Unreal Engine would have effectively barred all Unreal Engine developers...

    Epic is Suing Apple After Fortnite was Kicked from the App Store

    Yo, where we dropping... a lawsuit?

    Apple has removed Epic Games' Fortnite from the App Store after the studio implemented its own in-app payment system. This payment system bypasses Apple's payment system and thus avoids Apple 30% tax on purchases made.

    This is, as they say in the biz, a big no-no.

    Apple immediately responded by kicking Fortnite off of the App Store. Epic Games also implemented the same payment bypassing option into the Android version of...

    Epic Abandons Fortnite's Story Mode and 'Free-to-Play' Plans

    Fans and hopefuls have little reason for celebration today.

    In 2011, Fortnite: Save the World was revealed to the world during the Spike Video Game Awards. It was billed as a cooperative game akin to Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead, where you and some friends can get together and fend off a custom built base from hordes of baddies. It was unique for the fact that you had to harvest resources from around the map in order to build up your base, with different materials creating different...

  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Offers Big Changes for Battle Royale and Very Little for Save the World

    Black hole sun, won't you come...

    Thousands of people watched a mysterious black hole where Fortnite once stood. Literally. It was the top watched "game" on Twitch the past few days and it was literally nothing but a glorified screensaver. You could not play Fortnite at all. There was no Battle Royale. There was no Save the World. There was nothing. There were some random numbers at times, but who really cares.

    All of that nothingness has led to today's launch...

    Cross-platform play seems to be all the rage these days and it's only going to keep gaining support as time goes on. However, it seems as though some fans of the still popular battle royale game, Fortnite, aren't too keen on the idea.
