Only one regular dice will be used in the game while a second one will allow players to construct walls around their properties for defensive purposes and to employ special abilities such as boogie bombs, healing bandages and dealing damage to other players.

Eurogamer was first to report that Fortnite Monopoly is available for preorder online now at United Kingdom retailer Zavvi for £26.99 with a November 26 release date.

When will Fortnite Monopoly be released?

While Fortnite fans in other regions wait to find out if they'll be able to take the fight offline, theories about Season 6's mysterious purple cube continue to abound, and the new High Stakes event is now ready and waiting to be explored. However, the pre-order page has since been removed.

Fortnite Monopoly is scheduled for global release on October 1. While the pre-order was up, the description said that the game would be available to purchase on November 26th, at least in the UK. There's a storm that, if it lands on your square, takes takes two health points off you - oh ye, instead of money you have health points, of course.

It was only a matter of time before Fortnite began making its way to other gaming formats, and where else to start but one of one of America's most beloved and classic pastimes: guns.

On top of all of that, it seems that the standard Monopoly player pieces have been replaced by cardboard character tokens that each depict a skin from the game. We'll be able to find out how fun it is for ourselves next month, as Fortnite Monopoly is now scheduled to hit stores on October 1.

Monopoly is a board game that regularly ends with you cursing out your family. This edition will feature new twists on the concept, including gunfights and the encroaching storm, but as long as you can still steal from the bank, I'm good. Will you be buying the board game? Let us know what you think.
