Fortnite to introduce the Apex-inspired 'Reboot Van': Respawn dead teammates

Battle-Royale-Dev-Update-13-The-Reboot-Van-YouTube

When squadmates die in Fortnite, they'll drop a limited item called a Reboot Card.

Fortnite Reboot Van will officially go live for players next week, Epic Games confirmed. Once used, the van will be on cooldown and can not be used again for an undetermined amount of time.

Playing Fortnite with friends can be a little frustrating if you're the kind of player who tends to get eliminated quickly. They can then be brought and used at the Reboot Vans, which can be found at various locations on the map, to bring back fallen teammates.

After Apex Legends was launched, the competition in the battle royale gaming genre has been getting fiercer by the day. Their squadmates can bring the card to a reboot van to bring them back to life.

The footage in the developer update hints that the Reboot Cards will have timers, similar to the player banners in Apex Legends.

This is the second major feature that Fortnite will copy from Apex Legends.

Billie Eilish’s creepy approach to pop makes for an incredible debut album
This album is a necessary moment in today's music as it dwells in the sadness we refuse to address as a culture. The album is an in-depth dive into the beautifully intricate, somewhat dark, and very aware mind of Eilish.

The addition of Reboot Vans is going to be included in v8.30.

Fortnite will get Reboot Vans next week in the v8.30 update - and yes, this is the respawn mechanic that's been showing up in leaks and teasers for ages.

Epic Games finally announced what those vehicles are: The Reboot Van. I'm guessing Epic liked the idea from Apex so much that it wanted to crib a feature, which I can't blame them. As more details available we will keep you updated.

Part of this is due to Apex being a fantastic game in its own right.

According to Epic Games, "players will edit incorrect structure if backed up against a friendly built structure". But if the player is completely eliminated, then the team member has to watch and has no chance to actively participate in the game.
