The ever-changing Tilted Towers looks set to be receiving an update with the addition of a new building that has been uncovered by Fortnite data miners.

One of the most popular landing spots in Fortnite, Tilted Towers hands players the ability to quickly drop into the action, with plenty of loot available in the many buildings that make up the area.

During the evolution of the game, the area has received a number of changes – with fans even concerned for the safety of the entirety of Tilted during the meteor strike that kicked off Season 4.

Epic GamesChanges to Tilted Towers are not always welcomed by Fortnite fans.

Now, data miners have discovered a new building file in the game’s creative mode files that match the Tilted Towers look. Labeled as ‘T_Icon_PG_TS_Tilted_L_Office_k,’ the new structure appears in the game’s prefab list – prefab being pre-constructed buildings that players are able to pop down wherever they choose.

It appears that this will be an office building with five floors – all of varying sizes – and rooftop access. The different leveling of the floors makes the building seemingly perfect for action – a staple of Tilted Towers. There also appears to be a single plant growing on the top – something that may resemble a small cactus – and the majority of the structure is seemingly made of stone.

The addition of this building is not yet confirmed and nor is a date on which it could be released.

Being found in the game files points to its likely addition in the near future, especially considering the construction area that currently resides in Tilted Towers has seen progress over the course of season 7. 

Whatever happens, be sure to keep your eyes on Dexerto for the all the latest Fortnite news and updates.

Fortnite director reportedly hints at Smash Ultimate DLC fighter crossover

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
