Epic announced via their “Dev Update” video series that Fortnte will soon have a respawn feature. The feature will be added next week in v8.30 and will come via ‘Reboot Vans’, which have been viewable in replay mode since the start of Season 8.
The vans will be placed around the map at major points of interest. When players are eliminated they will drop a card that can be retrieved by a teammate and then used on a van to revive the eliminated player. Once used, the van goes into hibernation for a period of time before it can be used again.
This feature will be a major meta change to squad play, and we’re excited to try it out.
Check out Epic’s video below for all the details.
