Fortnite v8.10 Arrives Tomorrow Morning, New BR Vehicle Teased

[Jurassic Park theme intensifies]

Y'all remember those hilarious hamster ball orb cars they had in Jurassic World, and maybe the sequel also but we don't know for sure because we never saw that one? Well a Fortnite-ified version of that thing is almost certainly coming to Battle Royale in v8.10, which arrives tomorrow, March 12 at 5 a.m. Eastern, according to Epic. Save the World will get some kind of change/update related to the mode's experimental Beta Storms, should decide to read into a tease posted by a developer on Reddit. Creative Mode, in all likelihood, will continue to expand its slate of features and content at an astonishing rate, though nothing specific has been teased or announced. We hope this new orb car (Epic is calling it "The Baller") comes to Creative Mode as soon as possible, because Creative Mode's recently acquired pinball parts make this thing even more interesting than it already is.

Back to Jurassic World for just a second, we think that these orbs may not be the last parallel we see between Fortnite and the iconic dinosaur franchise. Season 8 is demonstrably Mesoamerican in theme, and all of the fictional Jurassic Park islands were located off the coast of this region. The Battle Royale island already has statues of dinosaurs in the desert biome, which could be a hint that the island has a paleontological history yet to be truly expounded upon. We wouldn't be surprised if this season, either somewhere in the middle or as the final big blockbuster finish, introduced actual dinosaurs to the Battle Royale island. It may only be a matter of time until roaming bands of Rift Raptors (original name do not steal) feed on squads caught unawares.
