Don’t expect cars to be added to Fortnite Battle Royale just yet. On Twitter, Epic announced that it would take a few more weeks to get cars added into the game, in a very tongue-in-cheek manner, saying the vehicles needed an inspection.
Fender bender? #NoSweat.
Run out of gas? That’s not covered.
Our lawyers are currently sweating the policy details and fixing typos like ‘otter coverage’ instead of auto coverage. Due to this, many vehicles got taken for inspection.

The new vehicles were featured in the trailer for Chapter 2 Season 3 at the start of the season, but they have yet to be added. According to a tease on Epic’s official website that roadways would become available as the water level receded throughout the season, making drivable vehicles available later.
There are other drivable vehicles in the game already, like helicopters and boats, but the trailer specifically teased drivable trucks and cars, which have not been in the game previously.
