G’day Forts Fans! This week’s update brings you a new map, plus a few fixes that should smooth out a few issues.
Left handers out there will appreciate the mouse button swapping option in the Options -> Input tab. If you would like to contribute a good left handed keyboard configuration please contact us.
New Map – Ziggurat 4v4
Staggered on the side of the desert cliffs are eight forts, hell bent on each other’s destruction. Gung-ho commanders will have their lust for battle quenched by manning the central forts, which will receive the most punishment, but with extra mine positions, will also have the capacity to build truly awesome structures of destruction.

Pro-tip: Foundations & Pegs
Foundations are the most important joints in a fort, and must be carefully considered. Aside from being key to your forts stability, they also cost resources (50M/400E) unlike regular pivots, so should be used sparingly in the early stages of your build order. Pegs, used to anchor ropes to surfaces and structures for greater stability, also have a cost (60M/600E), but can have several ropes attached to them at no extra cost.
Thanks for playing Forts, and don’t forget to sign up to the next tournament, if you want to test your mettle against the best in the world, and become the fourth Supreme Champion!
