Fortnite Monopoly will offer a new twist on the popular and classic Monopoly board game
What is the Fortnite Monopoly?
Fortnite Monopoly is a board game developed jointly by Epic Games and Hasbro, inspired by the classic board game Monopoly but with several notable changes.
How does it differ from the traditional monopoly?
The board game will differ from its classical counterpart in several different ways.
Perhaps most remarkable is that the money has been completely removed from Fortnite Monopoly. Instead, each player will have hit points, while the last one will be declared the winner, as in the successful game.
Community and casual chests in the game have also been replaced by nail traps, launch pads and bright chests found in Fortnite, although the classic Go, Jail and Free Parking squares on the board remain intact.
In addition, players will accumulate properties, which will reportedly be based on Fortnite locations, in order of arrival, rather than directly purchased.
Only one common die will be used in the game, while the second will allow players to build walls around their properties for defensive purposes and use special skills such as boogie bombs, healing bandages and damage to other players.
The board game will also offer storm cards to deal property damage held by other players in the game.
When will Fortnite Monopoly be launched?
Donald Mustard, the global Creative Director of Epic Games and Hasbro confirmed that the board game will soon be available on Monday, October 1, 2018.
