Earlier today, the PCB challenges were found in the files and leaked by data-miners, however there was no information as to how they would be released in Fortnite Battle Royale. The PCB challenges are linked to the new store, Keyboard Kings, found in Paradise Palms which was introduced today in v6.22. On the side of the store you can see a sign that says “PC방”, also known as PC Bang.
This is in reference to a South Korean PC gaming cafe, and according to Reddit user DrillDriver, Fortnite Battle Royale will be launching at PC Bangs in South Korea on November 8th. Here is the PC Bang sign in South Korea:
It seems as though Epic have added this store ahead of it’s launch in South Korea and the PCB challenges will most likely be available on this date for South Korean players. Here are the PCB challenges:
- Search Treasure Chests at a participating PC Cafe (25)
- Build Structures at a participating PC Cafe (250)
- Play Matches at a participating PC Cafe (5)
- Play Matches with one or more friends at a participating PC Cafe (10)
- Place Top 12 in Squads at a participating PC Cafe (10)
- Eliminate Opponents while playing at a participating PC Cafe (20)
- Play Matched at a participating PC Cafe (75)
- Play Matches with one or more friends at a participating PC Cafe (50)
If you look at all of the challenges, it requires players to play Fortnite at a PC cafe, and so it seems as though this is a collaboration with PC Bang to launch Fortnite Battle Royale in South Korea.
The Keyboard King store seems to be inspired by the PC Bang South Korean PC gaming cafe, as you can see below:
Epic have not officially announced anything yet, but we’ll keep you up to date with the latest.
