Fortnite has a new '3D Headphones' option for improved spatialization of sound

Look out below!

Tired of not knowing if someone's above or below you based on sound? Fortnite now has a new option that should help make it lot easier to tell what's going on. Epic explains the update in the blurb below.

With the release of Chapter 2, we’re excited to share that we’ve added a setting to improve audio. Tested by members of the competitive community, by toggling on the “3D Headphones” mode in the Audio Options menu, the mode will improve spatialization of tactically-important sounds.

What does that mean? You’ll have a better sense of sounds above, below, and behind you! Please note: we recommend stereo headphones for this mode, and the mode will not work if you have the “Visualize Sound Effects” accessibility option enabled. Jump in and try it out!

Teenager sued by Epic for Fortnite cheating, yet he continues to cheat anyway

If you wanna be dumb, you gotta be tough

Epic filed a lawsuit against Caleb “Sky Orbit” Rogers for cheating in Fortnite awhile back. Epic took issue with Caleb cheating, but was extra miffed by him recording his efforts and sharing them online. Adding even more heat to the legal battle, Caleb has continued to cheat and call out Epic in subsequent videos. Looks like he's not going to let a looming lawsuit stop him from cheating his way to victory.

Epic has urged courts to move along with the lawsuit in a timely manner, and suggest that Caleb's mother be, "appointed to officially represent him so that his interests can be protected and this matter can move forward.” Rogers’ mother had previously sent a letter to the court to ask the judge to dismiss the case against her son, saying Epic did not “legally bind underage users” to its EULA. Epic fired back by pointing to a video recorded by Caleb, in which he addressed his mother's letter, and said that she "knew it all" regarding the case, showing that she's deliberately ignoring the court's requests.

Watch Fortnite's 10th season come to an end in spectacular fashion

Big bang

Fortnite's 10th season is now over and done with, and fans wait to see what comes next. The end of season 10 was the biggest event the game has seen yet, as it completely destroyed the entire map. A brand-new place to play is coming sometime in the near future, but while we wait for that to happen, relive the end of season 10 in the video above.

Fortnite "Chapter 2" posted early on the Italian iOS store

Whoops!

We know that a big revamp is coming to Fortnite, but it appears the surprise has been leaked on the Italian iOS store.

The listing also had a video tied to it, which you can see some of here.

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!
