Epic Games has been on top of its game when it comes to adding new stuff to Fortnite. And the developer has managed to keep the excitement of the game alive even after all the hype stages it has gone through. And now it seems it has come up with a new and exciting offering for the players to keep them glued to the game.
In a new tweet Epic Games has announced that it is adding what appears to be swords in the game. The text says, “Coming soon… a weapon fit for a King” which is followed by an emoji of a sword, and a crown. There’s a video in the tweet as well that shows what appears to be the Infinity Blade sword from the mobile game of the same name. We see a character pulling out the sword from the icy and snow covered ground and nothing else is shown. Hence it is not clear yet how this new weapon will work. The still that follows shows the character hold the sword above his head pointing it at the sky.
We can guess that the sword will be a new melee weapon, but we’re not sure how it will be inducted in the game. There are assumptions that there could be a new game mode where one player will have the sword and others will have to take it from them.
