Epic Games announced a new partnership with Hasbro to release a special Monopoly board for Fortnite. Several changes are included in the Fortnite version of Monopoly, all of which complement the objective of achieving the title of last player standing. Similar to other themed Monopoly boards, every location has been pulled directly from Fortnite Island including Snobby Shores and Tilted Towers.
In addition to recognizable Fortnite locations, the Storm from Fortnite has been uniquely incorporated. For example, if a player has the misfortune of landing on a space occupied by the Storm, they lose two lives. Gameplay boasts a variety of differences from traditional Monopoly, including how players use dice.
When using dice in Fortnite Monopoly, one die is rolled for “action” while the other die is rolled for movement. Action refers to options such as shooting other players and healing yourself with Bandages. To add an extra layer of fun, Fortnite Monopoly will feature health points in place of money. Furthermore, items like the Boobie Bomb can also be found in Fortnite Monopoly, which takes a life away from all other players when used.
Fortnite Monopoly is scheduled to release on November 26, and was reportedly available for pre-order at UK retailer Zavvi for £26.99 according to Eurogamer. However, the pre-order page has since been removed. No word has been released as to whether or not Fortnite Monopoly will get a North American release at major retailers such as GameStop or Amazon.
