Hasbro, makers of classic board games and promoters of big brands on those board games, have just issued a Fortnite edition of Monopoly.

The game hinges on Fortnite‘s Battle Royale mode, and turns original Monopoly-play on its head.

Released in collaboration with Epic Games, the game hinges on Fortnite‘s Battle Royale mode, hence turning original Monopoly-play on its head.

Instead of competing to own as many properties as possible, this game is about survival: claiming protective locations and avoiding shit-storms. And money’s no good in this town; only HP chips and loot chests.

Oddly enough, there are still ‘Jail’ and ‘Free Parking’ spots on the board because, you know, it wouldn’t be Monopoly without these, even in the dystopian future.  Antonino Tati
