Rock legends Metallica just got added to Fortnite, with a brand new Ride the Lightning mythic item available for players to pick up in Battle Royale. This item creates a portal that launches you and your squamates sky-high.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 has now launched, adding in plenty of vehicular mayhem to the ongoing battle royale game. There’s new bosses to take on, and even mythic vehicles to steal.

With the last Season fully fading in the rearview mirror, we can now look forward to the new season: Wrecked. A post-apocalyptic sandy adventure awaits us, and the ‘Wasteland Warriors’ have taken over and made a new home for themselves on the sand-swept island.
