Fortnite Reboot Van coming next week

We knew it was coming...

The Fortnite Reboot Van, a revive mechanic lifted from fellow battle royale Apex Legends, will be added to the game sometime this week.

As previously reported, the Van’s revive mechanic will work as follows: when downed, a players will drop a reboot card at their corpse. A squadmate can collect said card, then return it to the Reboot Van, and the downed player will respawn.

There’s a bit of Fortnite flair added to the mechanic; when used, the Van will sound alarms, making nearby players aware of your wish to revive a mate. Risk and reward, eh? The Vans have been in-game since early March, but Epic is expected to actually turn on the functionality in the coming days.

We’re super-keen on Apex Legends‘ revive mechanic and praised it at the game’s launch.

Fortnite is available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, iOS and Android while Apex Legends is available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
