Robot at Pressure Plant gets new upgrades as giant Cattus monster fight event nears

Published

Season 9’s most hyped event draws ever closer as Epic Games continues to build up the giant Robot at Pressure Plant. The mech has gotten all new updates to its chassis as it towers towards the sky.

Each of Fortnite’s seasons contains major game changing events like the Unvaulting event of Season 8 or the famous Rocket Launch which poured Fortnite into the real world. We can expect something similar from the Giant Robot vs. Monster (Cattus) event.

The event’s details have been mostly covered in fog as Epic Games wants to keep it all secret until the big day. However, new updates to the Giant Robot and small data leaks have gotten us a little more information.

Fortnite’s Giant Robot gets torso upgrade

There’s truly nothing better in gaming that the build up (literal this time around) to a Fortnite Season ending event. The Unvaulting wasn’t beloved by all, but the staging for it was superb theater from Epic.

Season 9 won’t see us teleporting to any other dimensions, but we’ll get to witness a massive Mech Vs. Monster battle. Epic Games has been busy encrypting event files, but in-game updates have given us a little more information for the event.

The Giant Robot being built at Pressure Plant now has a torso…and it is massive. We’ve got you a picture, but you should head into a game to check it out for yourself. The scale can’t be adequately described, it’s the biggest object Fortnite has ever seen.

According to data-leaker, FortTory, the next steps of the building process will be the Bicep Left, Bicep Right, and Forearm Left. Unfornately for all of us, no images of the next stages can be found due to their encryption. If you try to view them through a Unreal Engine package viewer, all you will find is a bunch of jumbled up textures and model bits.

We also got you a short video of Pressure Plant as of July 8th. It gives a better idea of how huge this robot is when compared to our player model flying directly next to it.

May we suggest you listen to the Pacific Rim main theme while you view the video above? It’s an excellent choice for any and all Mech related videos.

But, what of the monster? Where is this behemoth lurking nowadays?

Where’s our friend, the Cattus monster?

I always feel like…a giant deadly monster is watching me

While the Pressure Plant mech has been occupying our attention for the last few weeks, it was the ‘Cattus’ monster that filled our minds with fears in the early parts of Season 9. As of late, the escaped monster hasn’t been making much noise.

We first saw the Cattus monster inside of the Polar Peak iceberg, but it then escapes its icy prison and took a part of Polar Peak with it. The monster also destroyed the modern house at the Pleasant Park and one of the Snobby Shores building also got the treatment.

Around the same time, players could see the monster swimming around the Fortnite island with Polar Peak’s tower on its back! We swear, no one builds an in-game story plot like Epic.

As for additional details on the monster’s whereabouts or the location of the Mech vs. Monster, we’ve got the leak of event’s timer for now. We’ll let you know as soon as any more leaks start to surface. Don’t expect too much before the event’s launch as Epic seems to be buttoning down the leaky ship.

How excited are you for this massive event? Fortnite’s definitely seen some game-changing stuff, but a Mech vs. Monster battle could tear apart gigantic parts of the map. The fight will certainly tie into any major map changes coming with the launch of Season 10.

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

Epic Games has dropped patch v15.40 in Fortnite and with it comes a boat load of leaked skins as well as cosmetics.

The latest update brought back one of the game’s older weapons, which had been vaulted for some time, and that’s the Flint Knock pistol.

As the pirate theme died long ago in Chapter 2, the weapon hasn’t been around for much of Chapter 2 – but now it’s back in the loot pool.

As usual, following an update, leakers have been hard at work looking around for any potential teasers for upcoming content. To that point, leaked skins and cosmetics have emerged.

New Bundles

Before we dive into the individual skins and how they’re going to look in Fortnite, it’s worth noting VastBlast discovered four new bundles are included.

These can be seen below – coming with individual pickaxes, back blings, and more.

On top of that, ShiinaBR revealed how some of the new skins shape up in-game.

Last but not least is the SypherPK Locker Bundle, found by iFireMonkey.

Here’s the list of new cosmetics leaked, courtesy of HYPEX – one of the game’s most accurate leakers.

As you can see, a number of weapon wraps and other cosmetics are in the works.

Now, it’s only a matter of time before they’re added to the battle royale experience. Which one do you have eyes for? Let us know by tweeting us @FortniteINTEL on Twitter.
