  • Samsung’s Clash of Commuters challenges Fortnite[1] fans to level up and win loot IRL
  • Samsung’s Gaming Research[2] shows that 48% of Aussie gamers selected smartphones as their most frequent gaming device, with over 55% turning to gaming as a means of relaxation.


Samsung Electronics Australia has today launched Clash of Commuters, a new experience that offers gamers the opportunity to play a uniquely Australian and public transport inspired map in Fortnite Creative[3], featuring national icons from the humble Bin Chicken to a Sydney train.


With 44% of Aussie gamers admitting they game while commuting to pass the time, the Clash of Commuters map enables players to experience an all-new Fortnite Creative island and allows them to defend the very thing that they commonly game on; Australian public transport.


From 2 May to 30 May, players will also have the opportunity to win Samsung swag IRL by participating in the Clash of Commuters competition[4]. Gamers will need to defend an Aussie public bus across 5 checkpoints as it meanders through a dystopian Australian commute, complete with bin chickens, servos and caffeine-starved commuters, for their chance to win. Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, with its realistic graphics, lifelike visuals, and  Samsung’s most powerful chipset to date, has been designed to meet the high performance demands of gamers. These devices will be hidden throughout the map, with players able to unlock special bonuses if they find them.


The player who completes all five rounds of the Clash of Commuters campaign in the shortest amount of time (The Shortest Haul) will be eligible to win a Samsung gaming pack worth over $8,000, which includes a 55” QN90D NEO QLED TV, 57” Odyssey Neo G95NC Curved Monitor, Galaxy S24 Ultra and Galaxy Buds2 Pro. There will also be additional prize packs for the fastest player to complete the campaign on a mobile device (The Ultimate On-The-Go Gamer), the most side quest phones acquired (Seat Scavenger), as well as four winners drawn at random from all completed time submissions (Regular Riders).


Recent research conducted by Samsung Electronics Australia sheds light on the preferences of Aussie gamers, with 48% listing smartphones as the device they game on most frequently, surpassing consoles (26%), desktops and laptops (24%), and other devices (3%). Moreover, for over 55% of Australian gamers, gaming serves as a means of relaxation, with one-third saying they game as a means of de-stressing.


Nathan Rigger, Head of Product & Services Mobile at Samsung Australia, said: “More than ever before, Australians are looking to their smartphones for entertainment and as an escape from the daily grind, and gaming is a great way to tick both of those boxes. With advanced ray-tracing features and a bigger[5] vapour cooling chamber, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is optimised to create a seamless gaming experience, allowing Australians to keep up with their favourite games, regardless if they are at home, or on the go.”   


In Melbourne and Sydney, Samsung will be bringing the Clash of Commuters map to life and giving everyday Australians a chance to experience game play on the Galaxy S24 Ultra at interactive pop-up activations. Players and passers-by will be able to explore a post-apocalyptic public transport world and play the new map at Sydney’s Parramatta Square from Saturday 4 May to Wednesday 8 May, before the activation heads over to Melbourne’s Southern Cross Station from Saturday 11 May through Wednesday 15 May.



Activation opening times:

  • Parramatta Square, NSW: 4 to 8 May, 11am to 7pm daily
  • Southern Cross Station, VIC: 11 May to 15 May, 11am to 7pm daily
