The long-running battle royale Fortnite is constantly being developed and is now getting a cool new feature on selected platforms: a video chat!
If you continue to gamble the Battle Royale shooter Fortnite and place more value on playing together with friends, you can look forward to a cool new feature on at least some platforms. Epic Games is now giving the title a video chat, which you can use to see your buddies while gambling.
The video chat integrated directly in the game will initially be supported on the PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 platforms. Buyers of Sony’s next-gen console can also look forward to the feature. Incidentally, this is made possible by working with the Houseparty app used for this purpose.
How does it work? You need an iOS or Android device on which you install the app mentioned. You then have to link this to your Epic Games account and then align this mobile device accordingly so that you can be seen in the picture. The app then places your head in front of a Fortnite-themed background. You can see how the whole thing looks in-game in the screenshot above.
Of course, the function can also be deactivated via the parent settings. A video chat is only possible in the same house party room or with your house party friends.

As a bonus, all players who link their accounts receive a “Rainbow Fog Wrap” as a gift in the game. Users of other platforms do not go away empty-handed either, because they can also receive the “Rainbow Fog Wrap” if they play five matches between November 20 and November 26 – they will receive the item in the first week of December.
