If you’ve ever wanted to look around Stark Industries without fear of an industrial arc reactor accident or death by super villain, you can do so now in Fortnite as the fictional company is at the heart of the new v14.10 update to the game.
The unsurprising name for this content – “the Stark Industries Update” – is part of the continued Nexus War which has seen marvel invade Fortnite in a big way as a fight for reality takes place against Galactus.
“In v14.10, the Stark Industries Update, the famous facility emerges from the Rift between worlds onto the Island — along with more super powers, a hazardous new weapon, and a special mode to show your might,” reads the announcement, “The center of much super activity, the high-tech Stark Industries is now on the map. Explore this esteemed complex to gather loot and maybe even meet a Hero (or Villain)…”.
v14.10 brings in new hero powers to destroy things with, such as the new Galactus Gatherer Drones. These drones go around collecting loot, but can also be defeated at which point they morph into usable player weapon which need to be picked up before they explode.
Finally new of this update also mentions an upcoming feature – Marvel Knockout. This pits teams against each other in a tournament, and it also comes with this rather nice stylised art featuring Wolverine. It’s 16X9 for those looking for a new wallpaper.
In our Marvel game news we recently played the new Avengers game and found it sorely lacking due to numerous technical problems and forced games as a service (GAAS) mechanics.
