The Fortnite: Battle Royale ‘Battle Bus’ has come to life in the form of a hot air balloon which appears set to launch for E3.
Since its release in 2017, Fortnite has established itself as a powerhouse within the gaming community for its incredibly unique take on the ‘Battle Royale’ genre that has gained substantial traction in recent months,
Players praise the title for its fun, colorful graphics, a one-of-a-kind building system, and overall replay value, which has allowed it to successfully break into ‘mainstream’ culture, unlike any video game before it.
Fortnite will have a major showing at the upcoming Electronics Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California following their huge year thus far, featuring a booth and a Pro-AM tournament which will feature top personalities from the streaming world pairing-up with celebrities.
Prior to their exhibit at E3, a collection of pictures of a ‘Battle Bus’ in the form of a hot air balloon were shared by @hofftv, the director of Video Production at Epic Games, and provides a preview of some awesome things to come at the convention.
The balloon is 40×30 feet, however, it is unknown when it exactly will be flying over E3 at the time of writing.
