Balloons will be the newest addition to Fortnite: Battle Royale soon.

Today’s message of the day in the Fortnite pre-lobby screen features a picture of balloons in between announcements for the competitive Fall Skirmish and Fortnitemares limited time event.

Last month, balloons were found in a datamine alongside the Quad Launcher, which has already been in the game for a couple of weeks now. These helium-filled friends could be consumables that players can use to recon wide-open areas.

Balloons will likely arrive in the next game update later this week, potentially mid-week.
