Fortnite’s dominance over popular culture seems set to continue, as Epic Games have teamed up with Hasbro to release a battle royale inspired edition of Monopoly.

Fortnite Monopoly is set to be available in major retailers globally from October 1. First spotted by Eurogamer, the game was initially rumoured to release on November 26, but Epic Games Creative Director Donald Mustard took to Twitter to confirm the earlier launch.

The new edition features plenty of familiar places featured in Fortnite, like Tilted Towers and Dusty Divot, and uses character skins such as Carbide and Rex instead of classic Monopoly pieces.

The Fortnite edition of Monopoly does play differently than the regular version you’re used to. Players are battling to be the last person standing but, instead of money, they have health points. The aim of the game is to try and take your opponents out.

Instead of both dice being used to determine movement, one is now used to determine an action, such as healing using a bandage or attempting to take out an opponent. The storm also makes an appearance in the Monopoly version, as spaces on the board occupied by the storm will deal damage to any player who lands on them.

It’s no surprise that Fortnite branded items are beginning to release, as the franchise has taken over the gaming industry over the past year. the game also has a massive, dedicated fan-base, so it makes sense that Hasbro would take this opportunity to work with the pop culture juggernaut.

The Fortnite edition of Monopoly is rumoured to cost £26.99 ($35), but there has been no official price released for either the UK or US version of the game.

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

Escape

Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
