I have been eagerly awaiting the release of Fortnite, and even though I don’t know much about it, I knew that this game would likely be the kind of game that would help me meet all of the meaningful goals that I have set for myself at the moment. I am constantly challenged by new, innovative things in life and I want that challenge. So the game has been a “game changer” so far, but I still want more!

Emote

The “Out West” emote, which features audio of the Travis Scott song “Out West,” has been removed from the Fortnite Item Shop. In fact, the entire section of Fortnite’s Item Shop that housed the dance emote is gone. According to a report from Eurogamer, the “Daily” section of the Item Shop has disappeared with no explanation, and Epic declined to comment to The Verge.

The emote was apparently on sale to coincide with Scott’s music festival Astroworld, which ended prematurely when eight people died after being crushed in what witnesses are calling an overcrowded and unsafe venue. After the incident, Scott was criticized for allegedly continuing the concert as people were being crushed and for not having enough safety protocols in place. Last year, the rapper held a Fortnite virtual concert, and multiple Travis Scott-themed items were created and sold to celebrate the event. It seems the “Out West” emote was the only Travis Scott item affected, and it is not known if Epic Games will disable other Travis Scott emotes or skins or if they will return to the shop in the future.

Furthermore, not everyone feels that the items should be removed from their locker. Despite the tragic event, cosmetics had no part to play. In addition to being a sensible option, players have the right to choose. Forcefully removing Fortnite cosmetics that have been paid for won't bode well for some within the community.

Although Epic Games removed the emote from the Item Shop, prominent Fortnite leaker Shiina contends that players who still own the emote will most likely still be able to keep it, along with all the other Travis Scott Astronomical cosmetics. "Needless to say, the cosmetics won't be available for purchase anytime soon, and for a very good reason," Shiina said. (Source: www.ginx.tv)
