Now a power company in Israel wants Fortnite to make some changes to its game. Not to the guns or the ability to shoot other characters or steal dance moves, but to the players' ability to climb utility poles. According to a Wednesday report by Reuters, Israel Electricity Corp. sent a letter to the game's makers, asking that they no longer let Fortnite players scale utility poles, because it could encourage dangerous real-world behavior.
In the Monday letter, obtained by Reuters, Israel Electricity said kids climbing utility poles is a real problem that it's been trying to stop for many years. The power company said Fortnite is responsible for the safety of its players.
