Fortnite is Getting a Monopoly Board Game and Nerf Blasters from Hasbro
If Fortnite hasn't already invaded your life, Hasbro is bringing the ever-popular Battle Royale title to stores through Monopoly and Nerf blasters.
Since the debut of its Battle Royale mode last year, Epic Games’ Fortnite has dominated the multiplayer gaming landscape on pretty much every platform imaginable, and now the increasingly-popular game is coming to retail in a few new forms thanks to Hasbro.
Coming from a leak earlier today (reported by Eurogamer), Hasbro confirmed with IGN that a Fortnite version of Monopoly board game will be coming to stores starting on October 1st, 2018. The classic game of depriving your loved ones of everything they own will, of course, be based around Epic’s massively popular board game and provide “a battle-building twist” to the game.
In addition to the confirmation of Fortnite Monopoly, Hasbro also confirmed that the company will be producing a line of Nerf dart blasters based around the game that will surely bring to life many of the signature weapons and items from the game, with a current release window aimed for spring 2019.
Specifically, Hasbro explained that the Fortnite nerf blasters will “will immerse fans into the player-versus-player action of the game,” and surely will be a treat for fans of the game to utilize some of its iconic weapons in real life.
