Fortnite's Port-a-Fortress offers bigger, better protection

The upcoming item is Port-A-Fortress, and many Fortnite players can guess what it will be about.

During Season 5 of Fortnite the infamous Port-a-Fort was introduced, an item which when thrown instantly creates a portable building. It's handy in a few different scenarios, whether you're out of building materials and need to lay down quick cover or you're trying to confuse an enemy player by tossing a Port-a-Fort grenade into one of their own structures. All things considered, though, we will likely see even more items added alongside the Port-a-Fortress, so there could be a new weapon that becomes everyone's favorite soon.

Apple scrubs most references to AirPower from its website
Last week's Apple event marked one year to the day since Apple showed off its AirPower wireless charging mat for the first time. The wireless charger emits too much heat which affects the charging rates of the devices placed on top of it.

Epic Games has just posted an in-game announcement regarding the new item. However, the image shown on the item makes us believe that it will be a 3-by-3 base made of metal. If you can imagine something like that but much more imposing, possibly large enough to comfortably fit more than one player in assuming you're playing in a multi-person playlist, you've got a good idea of what the Port-a-Fortress item will do.

The Port-a-Fortress will allow players to "take defense to new heights" and is expected to go live in the next update which will presumably be released on Tuesday, September 18. While there's a chance to find this item through Chests and Supply Llamas, the Port-a-Fortress item looks like it's going to be even more hard to find. Of course, that doesn't mean the developer won't be bringing fresh items into the mix here and there, as it appears as if the studio is set to add a Port-a-Fortress item to the free-to-play game soon.
