Epic Games is adding regular cars to Fortnite

Developer Epic Games today announced that a new update to Fortnite, aptly code-named “Joy Ride”, brings four regular cars to the popular battle royale title for iOS and Android.

The following vehicles area available in the just-released Fortnite v13.40 update:

  • Islander Prevalent
  • Victory Motors Whiplash
  • OG Bear
  • Titano Mudflap

To keep things interesting, these virtual vehicles feature gas tanks that need to be refilled so keep that in mind while playing the game (your character can carry spare gas cans). “As long as the car isn’t booted, the keys are already in the ignition,” the development team explained.

Watch the teaser trailer for the Joy Ride update, embedded right ahead.

Check out the update’s highlights:

  • Buckle up. Blow past enemies with the Whiplash or go full throttle through structures with the Mudflap. Experience the Joy Ride with this new update now.
  • Wherever you find yourself on the Island, jump behind the wheel with your squadmates and venture out to find more friends (or enemies).
  • Need some jams for your joyride? Blast some tunes on your favorite channel with all-new radio stations. (And if you’re a content creator, remember that you can disable Licensed Audio in the Audio settings.)
  • Some advice to help you outlast your opponents: if you aren’t near a Gas Pump, you can fuel up with one of the throwable Gas Cans scattered around the Island. These can be refilled at any Gas Pump you arrive at later.

The update is now live on iOS and Android.

Fortnite is free to download in the App Store.
