Monopoly is definitely one of the most popular games in the world and almost all of us have played it at some point or the other. And now it seems like the popular board game is going to adopt the theme of the most popular video game in the world right now, that is Fortnite.

There are many versions of Monopoly and these versions are even modeled after many countries in the world. These versions use the currency as well as official terminologies from those countries. But this won’t be the first time Monopoly has partnered up with other popular brands to bring out a special version of the game.

We have seen Hasbro bring out some special versions of Monopoly with other developers, and some examples are Skyrim and Mario Kart. And now Hasbro wants to capitalize on the success of Fortnite to partner up with Epic Games to bring out a Fortnite version of Monopoly.

This was first reported by Eurogames who spotted it on website Zavvi where the product is on pre-order right now and will go on sale on November 26.

From what we can see the image, it seems to a regular Monopoly board but the pieces seem different from the regular ones. We notice there are elements like ‘pawn chips’, health cards and wall cards, and we expect the rules to be a little different from the regular game. Though it is hard to tell if this will be an accurate representation of Fortnite on the Monopoly board until we know more about it. As for the fun factor, we’re going to have to wait and see when we get our hands on it.
