‘Fornite’ News, Update: Elon Musk Trolls Players, Act 2 of Season 6 Coming Up

“Fortnite” has practically become inescapable these days, with everything from Hollywood stars to athletes getting in on the action. Even politicians know what it is and this speaks to the ubiquity of the Battle Royale title more than anything else. This is why Tesla CEO Elon Musk trolling players isn’t really that surprising, though, it’s no less amusing. It would also appear that Act 2 of Season 6 is almost here.

In typical Elon Musk fashion, the tech billionaire recently retweeted a fake article titled “Elon Musk buys Fornite and deletes it,” which came with a fictional quote about saving kids from “eternal virginity.” To anyone who is even capable of understanding satire, the fact that the article is meant to be a joke would be unmistakable. The Tesla CEO neither bought “Fortnite” nor did he shut it down.

Naturally, the internet got in on the action with other social media users posting their own takes on the fake article, Comicbook.com reports. Basically, people bonded over the age-old subject that is guaranteed to elicit laughter, which is a person’s lack of sexual activity.

On the matter of events that are directly related to “Fortnite,” however, Forbes reports that Act 2 of Season 6 might be drawing closer. Players who drop into the island now will likely have already witnessed the activation of the runes all over the floating landmass. This is an unmistakable prelude to something and considering Epic’s past behavior, new developments of the current season are likely underway.

Unfortunately, there have yet to be details released on this front, so no one outside of the studio really knows what is going to happen next. Suffice it to say, however, there will likely be new skins, new emotes, new features, and new weapons coming to “Fortnite.” This is the kind of change that gamers will always welcome.
