Is there a Wordle Fortnite Edition Game? Where to play Fortle

With the success of Wordle, players are wondering if there’s a Fortnite Wordle game edition.

Wordle took the world by storm when it was released with millions of players visiting the site to guess the daily five-letter word. Since its release, there have been a large number of games that have been released in the last few months.

Quordle and Heardle are the two most popular Wordle-inspired games right now, but that could change fairly quickly. We’ve seen players look for a Wordle Fortnite edition, and we haven’t found one until today.

We’ve gone ahead and created our own Fortnite Wordle called Fortle. It’s available on our sister site, Fortnite Skin, and here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Fortnite Wordle Game

Our Fortnite Wordle game works the same as the majority of other daily word games. Players need to guess the daily Fortle within six guesses.

Each guess must be a valid five-letter word. After each guess, the colour of the tiles changes to show you how close your guess is to the selected Fortle word of the day.

Wordle Fortnite Edition Daily Fortle Rules

The legendary orange colour means you have the correct letter in the right place, the epic purple colours means a letter is in the word, but in the wrong place. And finally, the grey colour represents letters that aren’t in the daily Fortle word.

There’s a new Fortle available each day at midnight local time. If you want to play, you can head over to the Fortle site HERE. As we’ve only just released it, there will be a few bugs that players will likely come across. We’d appreciate if you can report them by messaging our Twitter account, FortleGame.

Fortnite Resistance Story Trailer Chapter 3 Season 2

Here’s the information we got from the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Resistance trailer.

After no teaser or any information as to when season one was officially ending, the Fortnite Status account tweeted when the servers would be going down for scheduled maintenance in order to prefer them for the 20.00 new season patch.

It seemed like Epic Games wanted to keep everything a surprise, but that doesn’t seem to be the case now that we know what the theme is. The Fortnite chapter 3 season 2 theme is war. With everything going on right now, it’s no surprise Epic didn’t want to market the season, and understandable so.

There was no scheduled release for the story trailer like we’ve had in the past but it was released as soon as the servers went down. The name of the new season is called “resistance” and below, we’ll give a quick breakdown of what happened along with a link to the trailer.

Resistance Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Story Trailer

The IO (Imagined Order) have been drilling through to the map since the start of the first season. The Fortnite resistance season 2 trailer starts off with an IO drill breaking through with tanks driving out. Battle Busses meet them in a field and chaos ensues.

A few Battle Pass characters are introduced, a fleet of IO air support arrives along with Dr. Slone. Doctor Strange appears with a new device that removes all structures before Doctor Strange arrives with some of the Battle Pass skins.

The chapter 3 season 2 story trailer ends with the two forces running towards one another in a field. That’s a quick recap of what happens but you can take a look at the trailer for yourself below:

Aftermath Fortnite February 2022 Crew Pack Skin Revealed

Aftermath will be the Fortnite skin featured in the February 2022 crew pack monthly subscription.

Last month, the Fortnite Crew Pack monthly subscription skin was leaked ahead of time with the trailer releasing earlier than expected. Before Epic Games realized the mistake, Twitter users had already saved a copy of the trailer.

For the February 2022 crew pack, Epic Games added the skin in the recent 19.10 update that was released last week on Tuesday. The files for the Feb 2022 crew pack were encrypted, but data-miners managed to decrypt and leak them.

Epic Games have now confirmed in a blog post that the Aftermath Fortnite skin will be in the upcoming crew pack for February. Here are all of the cosmetics in the set along with how they look like.

February 2022 Fortnite Crew Pack – Aftermath

You’ll likely have already seen the Aftermatch Fortnite skin if you follow data-miners on Twitter. Along with the skin, it comes with a reactive back bling, the Rave Digger pickaxe, and the Glitter n’ Grim wrap.

Here’s what all of the Aftermath cosmetics look like:

Here’s what the reactive Flatline back bling looks like:

You’ll also receive 1,000 V-Bucks along with this seasons Battle Pass if you don’t already have it. The new crew pack will go live and be in players lockers at 7 PM ET on January 31, 2022.

Until then, you still have a chance to get the January crew pack, which includes Snow Stealth Slone, the Snow Stealth Hardcase back bling, Sleet Spike pickaxe, and the Snow Stealth Wrap.

Fortnite Live Event Time – Chapter 2 The End Countdown Timer (4 pm ET to my time)

Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite chapter 2 Season 8 “The End” live event including the time and countdown timer.

If you’re not aware, Epic Games asked data-miners not to leak any chapter 3 information during downtime. However, the Battle Pass trailer has been leaked after Epic themselves leaked it.

Although it was quickly deleted, Fortnite players were quick to download the video and upload it on Twitter and YouTube. If you want the new chapter to be a surprise, we suggest you stay off Twitter as users have been posting the trailer as a reply to any Fortnite related tweet.

If you do want to see what’s in store for next season, we have a few articles dedicated to the leaks including a breakdown of the trailer, a look at all of the Battle Pass skins, the new map, and a certain Spider skin.

The End Fortnite Chapter 2 Finale Live Event
The End Fortnite Chapter 2 Finale Live Event

We still have the Fortnite Live event called “The End” to finish off Fortnite chapter 2 season 8 and move onto the new chapter. Here’s everything you need to know about today’s The End Fortnite Live Event including the time it’ll take place.

When is the Fortnite Live Event Time?

Today’s The End Fortnite Chapter 2 live event finale will take place at 4 PM ET (9 PM GMT, 10 PM CEST). However, you’ll want to queue for the Fortnite live event early as it’s likely there will be a limited number of players that can participate.

As this is one of the biggest Fortnite events we’ve had since the end of chapter 1, the amount of players both new and old will likely cause server issues. For that reason, we’d recommend logging into Fortnite an hour early.

Thanks to Twitter user TweaBR, we have a list of what time the Fortnite live event will take place around the world:

4 PM ET to My Time (GMT, CEST, BST, PST, CT, MTN, PT)

Countdown Timer

There’s a countdown timer in-game as well as in the lobby. However, if you’re not able to get into the game and check or you’re somehow still confused as to when the event will take place in your country, we’ve added a countdown timer below as well.

For those attending, you’ll earn two free rewards which are a loading screen and a wrap. We’ll cover the two rewards in a separate article as they’ve just been decrypted and leaked by several data-miners including the ever reliable Hypex.

After the event, there’ll be downtime similar to what we saw with the black hole event at the end of chapter 2. However, we’re not exactly sure how long it’ll last as we don’t have an official start date for the new chapter but we’ll keep you updated with the latest as always.

Be sure to attend The End if you can and I’ll see you in Chapter 3.

Fortnite Season 7 Live Event Countdown Timer – Event time, date, leaks & more

A Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 live event countdown timer has appeared on the map.

We’re almost into week 8 in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7. We’ve only had two major updates this season and the last update, v17.20, didn’t have any new content. However, Epic Games announced a new update for today, v17.21.

As of writing, the servers are currently down for maintenance. Prior to downtime starting, there was a countdown that appeared in-game for console players. During downtime, data-miners have leaked some files for an upcoming season 7 live event.

Data-miners have also leaked that the countdown will be in the Fortnite lobby along with some leaks regarding what will happen to the mothership during the event. Here’s everything we know so far.

Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 live event countdown

According to players, a blue abductor appeared with a countdown for the Fortnite season 7 live event. Here’s what it looks like:

Fortnite season 7 live event countdown

Once downtime ends, data-miners have posted what the lobby should look like with the countdown timer in the background:

Fortnite season 7 event time & date

The Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 live event should take place on August 6th, 2021 at 3 or 4 PM EST. However, we’ll confirm the time when the servers are back up from maintenance. There’s always the slight chance Epic could delay the event, but we’ll keep you updated with the latest.

Event Leaks

According to new strings added to the files, the name of Coral Castle could change after the event. Coral Chunks appears to be new name that will be given to the location once the mothership abducts most of the location. Here’s a blender showcase to give you an idea of what Coral Castle will look like after the live event thanks to iFireMonkey:

Data-miner Hypex has stated that the event will have two cosmetics with it along with challenges. Here’s the icon that he’s found relating to the upcoming event:

We’ll likely have more leaks and information regarding the event over the next couple of days. We’ll update this article or post a new one with any new information.

How to Unlock the Superman & Clark Kent Secret Fortnite Skin

Here’s how to unlock the Superman & Clark Kent Fortnite skin.

Some players have been unhappy that Epic Games have been adding in collaborations into the season battle passes. However, the majority seem fine with it so long as the skins and other cosmetics look good and aren’t difficult to unlock.

This season, we have a Rick Sanchez Fortnite skin which can be unlocked once you collect enough reward. The whole Fortnite battle pass system is a little different this season with players being able to unlock the cosmetics they want in whatever order they decide if they have enough battle star rewards saved up.

The no so secret Fortnite skin for season 7 is Clark Kent AKA Superman. Last season, we knew Neymar JR was the secret Fortnite skin. Players need to wait a few weeks before they could get their hands on that skin and the Superman Fortnite skin is no different.

Superman Clark Kent Secret Skin

Unfortunately, the Clark Kent Superman skin can’t be unlocked for another 65 days. That means you can’t unlock the Superman Fortnite skin until week 9 of season 8.

The skin you actually unlock is Clark Kent. However, there’s a built-in emote for it called secret identity. Using the emote will turn you into Superman until you use the emote again.

As we can’t unlock the skin for nine weeks, we don’t know exactly how you’ll be able to unlock the skin. However, going by past seasons, it’s safe to assume you’re going to need to complete different challenges to the normal weekly ones.

There’s also a Shadow Superman skin style that’s been leaked by data-miners. You can find it on the second page of the Clark Kent tab but again, we don’t know exactly how you can unlock it.

Other cosmetics from Clark Kent include the Kal-El’s Cape glider, the Solitude Striker pickaxe, the Daily Planet back bling, and a couple of sprays and emoticons.

All NPC Character Locations in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7

Here’s where to find all the NPC (characters) in Fortnite season 7.

Fortnite NPC or characters were first introduced back in Fortnite chapter 2 season 5. Players seem to love the addition of characters in Fortnite as they provide you with challenges that will allow you to gain gold bars, intel, weapon updates, and some NPCs will sell exotic weapons.

With each new season of Fortnite, we’ve seen some new Fortnite NPCs (characters) added around the map whilst others have been removed. There’s also a NPC character Fortnite collection book that will let you know which NPCs you have visited during the season. You won’t know the locations of the character from the book, but you’ll get a description for each one.

It seems like in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, we have a similar number of NPC in comparison to last season. There’s no doubt we’ll get more characters added as the season goes on, but for now we have a large number to visit at the start. Here are all the NPC locations on the Fortnite season 7 map.

All NPC Locations Fortnite Season 7 Map

Data-miners aren’t only good for leaking new skins and challenges. Data-miner FireMonkey has tweeted out an image of where all the NPC locations are on the Fortnite chapter 2 season 7 map. Here’s the map below:

NPC locations Fortnite Season 7 Map

From a quick glance at the map, it looks like there’s a few new NPCs on the season 7 map including Marigold and Dreamflower. We’l post an updated map of the all the characters in Fortnite if there are any missing from the map above, or if more get added during the season.

Fortnite Wakanda Forever Challenges & Free Rewards

The Black Panther Wakanda Forever Fortnite Challenges will be available to complete today and completing these challenges will award you with XP and an Emote.

In the v15.10 Fortnite update, there were many files added to the game as the Epic employees will be taking a break over the festive period. Dataminers were able to leak many of the files that were released and they had found the Wakanda Forever Challenges.

The whole of last season was based on the Marvel and Fortnite worlds colliding, but this collaboration has not ended as there are some Marvel Skins and other cosmetics yet to be released and there is also a Marvel portal in-game. One of the Skins, that will likely be released today, is Black Panther and the challenges relating to this character will be available to complete today, all of which can be seen below.

  • Play matches (10)
  • Outlast Opponents (500)
  • Play Duo or Squad matches (5)

These challenges are very easy to complete and shouldn’t take you much time at all. If you want to outlast opponents easily, we would advise you to jump far from the Battle Bus and hide in matches so more opponents will be killed.
