Keeping up with the Joneseys: weekly Fortnite recap

Last week, we had a small update, some interesting leaks about future content, and more details about the Rift Tour and Ariana Grande crossover.

Here's everything you missed.

Rift Tour ft. Ariana Grande

The closest upcoming event should be the Rift Tour, which is set to kick off on August 6.

This will be a concert, with Ariana Grande as the headliner. We've already seen some skin variations leaked, which should be in the Item Shop around the time of the concert.

Interesting leaks

Speaking of leaks, we also heard news about a Fortnite X Naruto crossover coming in the future.

This isn't completely new, but recent leaks all but confirm that Epic have received the rights to Naruto and will be bringing it to the game.

We also know The Mothership's next target: Slurpy Swamp. More leaked images show how the POI will look as The Mothership attempts to abduct it.

Small update

We didn't get a massive update last week, as Epic focused on bug fixes and a couple of balance changes.

The biggest change probably came to the Parasites - one if the more annoying elements of Fortnite to that point.

Parasites seem to be everywhere, and can be devastating in solo modes if you don't have any healing.

Thankfully, Epic made them fly slower - making them easier to avoid. They also limited the amount of health they take from you, making the sacrifice of encountering a Parasite less drastic.
