Fortnite Joy Ride update and cars release date announced by Epic Games

Epic Games has revealed the Fortnite Joy Ride update release date, with cars finally making their way into the game.

There aren't many modes of transportation in Fortnite right now, as Epic Games still has motorboats disabled in competitive due to multiple, severe glitches. Motorboats, however, have returned to non-competitive play. While the developer is still fixing motorboat issues, they have announced the Fortnite Joy Ride update, which will finally bring cars to the game.
