Fortnite modified the moon’s design: In honor of International Women’s Day, new leaks say that Fortnite will make a small change to the island map. To show gratitude and support for the women in society who have made so much progress and money over the years, International Women’s Day is on March 8.
More than half of the people who play video games are women. They make up the majority of players for games like Apex Legends and Mass Effect.
This isn’t just true when you talk about the original characters in the item shop and Battle Passes. Fortnite has also had a fair amount of iconic women show up in the game. Games like Lara Croft and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil have been in the game before. Even celebrities like Ariana Grande have had their looks in the game.
For example, the island has been covered in snow for Christmas and the winter season. Halloween decorations have been scattered around the map for the annual Fortnite mares events.
Several quests take place in-game during Valentine’s Day. New leaks say that for International Women’s Day, there will be a small change on the island.
A tweet from FortTory says that Epic Games will be changing the map’s sky-box when the daytime cycle ends and it’s time for bed. A bright pink glowing heart will now place in the sky instead of a moon to show how important this day is.
When Epic made this small change to the world, it was nice that they did it to honor the holiday. When Epic made the March Through Time event for Martin Luther King Jr. It was a shame that they didn’t go even further. This is still a good thing, though.
To avoid harassed, 59 percent of women hide their gender online. This is because they don’t want people making fun of them. That’s not to say that games aren’t fun for everyone. For example, Epic Games’ gestures to Fortnite show that gaming is for everyone and that women’s role in the industry should not forgot.
It is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. You can play Fortnite now.
