Fortnite‘s wild popularity continues, and Epic Games is looking to capitalize on that with a significant presence at PAX West 2018. This consists of a number of things, including the conclusion of the ongoing Summer Skirmish tournament, where $1.5 million is up for grabs to those at PAX West.
What you’ll also find if you’re at the show is Lazy Links Live. One of the major additions to Fortnite: Battle Royale’s Season 5 map has been a golf course and golf carts (in the form of the All-Terrain Kart, or ATK). With that in mind, Epic has set up a nine-hole mini-golf course inspired by the in-game Lazy Links golf course. This is located inside the convention center where PAX is taking place.
To make it even more worth a visit for those at PAX, Epic has brought in professional cosplayers who have dressed up as some of the game’s best skins. You can get a look at this cosplay and the golf course above.
As always, there’s a lot happening in the world of Fortnite. Epic has released a new Battle Royale dev update video that outlines changes to storm damage, as well as plans to vault the revolver. There’s also a new event, High Stakes, on the way next week that will consist of multiple things: a limited-time mode called Getaway, a Wild Card skin, and High Stakes challenges.
Details are still scant, but in the meantime, there’s plenty to do thanks to the release of Week 8 challenges. Among other things, those call on players to search between oversized seats and to use Rifts at different spawn locations. The most recent content update also added the new shockwave grenade.
