The Rift-To-Go can create a Rift for themselves and allies - just like the ones that are usually dotted around in fixed locations.

Epic Games has added the ability for Fortnite players to thank the bus driver when diving out of the battle bus thanks to a fan petition. Today's news is simply that Epic Games is making a version of the rift which can fit in your inventory.

It's likely that the Rift-To-Go will be included in this week's patch, which drops tomorrow.

Found in chests, vendies, supply drops and loot llamas, the portable portals can be carried in your inventory and deployed immediately.

Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with an Android beta currently underway.

As very briefly teased in the trailer up top, the Rift-To-Go lets players conjure rifts on the fly, for personal use and for squads. "Be careful that no enemies follow you through".

May pledged earlier this week to fight off any leadership challenge from Johnson and insisted she was in it "for the long term". "Last year if you recall, the foreign secretary then - Boris..." " Boris Johnson was here with ambulances", Kenyatta said.

Notably, the new limited time mode changes the entire Fortnite playing style.

It's also worth noting that whilst these numbered updates usually last around two hours, it's possible, if the game hits a snag with a new bug - or that PSN network issue persists - that it could take longer.

More data mined items were uncovered in the latest patch, including new emotes and cosmetics.

The game's latest update, launched on August 23, offers new features such as the Score Royale LTM and the Rift-To-Go items.

When it comes to weapons and items, players will have a quicker chance to react as the patch shortened Pump Shotgun equip time from 0.96 seconds to 0.88 seconds.
