A few weeks ago, Epic Games hinted in an AMA that Fortnite would be getting a brand new single-player vehicle. The latest news feed update has revealed exactly what this is: a rolling hamster ball with a cushy-looking seat.
And, in a very down-with-the-kids way, it’s called The Baller.
The new vehicle, which feels distinctly like a Jurassic World gyrosphere, comes equipped with a grappler, suggesting players can use it to swing between buildings. Whether that layer of hardened plastic will provide any form of protection is another matter. Also, do they work on water? I have questions.
