A Fortnite respawn system could be hiding in Replay Mode


Epic Games may have accidentally revealed an early look at a possible revive system for Fortnite. Mysterious vans have shown up in the game’s Replay Mode since Season 8 began earlier today, and look like they’ll provide a means for a player to re-enter a game once they’re down and out.

At time of writing, the vans only show up in replay mode, not in the game itself, so we can’t tell what they actually do. It’s likely that they’re acting as placeholders for a mechanic that’s not yet ready to be widely rolled out, but that means that we can get a closer look.

You can’t drive the vehicles, but it looks like they’ll be found in set locations around the map. They don’t look dissimilar to the game’s iconic Battle Bus, with similar struts across the vans’ wheels, although there are a few details that set them apart. Most notable is the giant hologram that sits on the roof, but there’s also a logo on the side and a series of buttons to be found towards the back of the van.
