In order to keep the game fresh, Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, have implemented various updates and patches to include new game modes, weapons, items, and other accessories since release, much to the enjoyment of community members. This is the update that will add the recently announced "Port-a-Fort" item that could shake things up significantly. You can see how the Port-a-Fort works in action through the video embedded below.

Many people started to believe that by adding this item to the game, low skilled building players will gain some advantage and give them a chance to oppose their opponent (if it's good at building).

Part of the appeal of Fortnite on mobile is the ability to carry over in-game progress to other platforms through your Epic Games account.

Of course, we'll have to wait and see how the Port-a-Fort is implemented in Fortnite before we become too concerned about any potential balancing issues. As with forts created by the player, the Port-a-Fort shrouds the player in protective walls, helping elevate them above competing players while helping protect them from bullets and grenades. Plus, with so the Battle Royale market being ruled by games such as PUBG, Fortnite and H1Z1, is there room for newcomers who promise a twist on the genre?

For Fortnite Mobile, specifically, its success may be partly due to it being an exact copy of the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of Fortnite.
