After years of waiting, Fortnite update 13.30 will finally introduce one of the most requested features to Battle Royale.
One of the biggest and most important updates yet, version 13.30 is expected to usher in the release of cars.
Launching on July 21/July 22, update 13.30 is expected to add four different classes of cars, including trucks, large cars, medium cars, and small cars.
While cars will fall into one of the aforementioned categories, there will be one or two different styles in each class.
If the leaks are to be believed, this includes flashy sports cars, taxis, big rigs and potentially even police cars – albeit the latter are unlikely to make the final cut.
While vehicles have been in Fortnite for quite some time, it’s perhaps a little surprising that it’s taken this long for cars to make an appearance.
Epic Games first hinted at the appearance of cars in the Season 3 release notes for update 13.00.
“Below the surface,” reads an Epic post. “As time goes on and water recedes, even more locations will be uncovered. And as the roadways become more open, you’ll discover new ways to get around.”

With the season in full swing, water levels have gradually receded to reveal more of the Fortnite map.
This includes a new update this weekend, which has revealed more of Craggy Cliffs, among other locations.
Needless to say, there appears to be enough solid ground for cars to get around.
According to previous leaks, each car class will have varying levels of health, top speeds and fuel.
The small car, for example, is said to have 800 health and 100 fuel capacity.
The medium car and large car will all have more health, but will burn through fuel faster than the small car.
The truck will have the most health and lowest fuel consumption, but will also be slower and harder to handle compared to the cars.
You’ll reportedly be able to fuel at gas stations, and by searching through chests and picking up floor loot.
Just watch out for snipers when you’re in the gas stations attempting to refuel.
