Fortnite, Fall Guys, and Rocket League get kid-friendly Cabined Accounts!

What do Fortnite, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, and Rocket League have in common? They are all some of the most played games under the Epic Games banner, but they are also especially popular with kids. Epic Games knows this, so they’re rolling out a new type of account to keep themselves safe online.

Cabined Accounts, as Epic Games calls them, aims to provide “a safe and inclusive custom experience for younger gamers while maintaining access to the gameplay you love.” Cabin accounts have been announced on the Fortnite blogbut since it is an offshoot of Epic accounts, it applies to every game within the company’s network.

Players who sign into Fortnite (or another Epic-related game) will be asked to provide their age. Persons under the age of 18 will automatically be placed in a closed account. Once the parental consent process is completed, the minor will be able to play games with the parental settings activated. For anyone with a previous presence in Fortnite, their existing purchases and cosmetics will still be available within the Cabined account. Parents can also decide to let their children keep a regular account without any shelter or restrictions.

This is one of the many changes that have come to Fortnite recently, though the others have been more noticeable than the content additions. Chapter Four kicked off the first season, completely rewriting the island for the third time. There are a lot of NPCs and NPCs scattered across all the new locations, and the hotspots containing top-tier loot have also changed.

As you would expect, this is not the end of Fortnite’s changes. There are plenty of battle pass rewards to earn now, and more cosmetics like Hulk skin are on the horizon. According to a recent leak, new moves like double jumps and wall running will be making their way into the battle royal as well.
