Epic Games has released a new teaser video on social channels today teasing the addition of a brand new sword for Fortnite.
Epic showcased a first look at the sword originally in the very first Fortnite Season 7 teaser video when the new Battle Pass skins were revealed, but now we have a separate teaser just for this new weapon.
Here’s the new teaser video showcased on Epic Games’ social channels today:
This addition would be one of the first new melee weapons in Fortnite, as the game has yet to have a dedicated melee weapon beyond the pickaxe. Epic could make this a new, separate game mode so that the weapon does not affect the balance of the base game, or it could be added to the main game. No confirmed yet from Epic on what’s happening on this front for now.
As of this writing, Epic Games has not shared a release date for the weapon as been announced yet beyond just a ‘coming soon.’ It could be part of this week’s new update, so stay tuned for the latest information.
