The newest Fortnite update adds a new item that drastically changes building in Battle Royale, as well as adds new things to the game’s Save the World mode.
The new update adds the previously revealed Port-A-Fort grenade in Battle Royale, which immediately creates defensive forts for players without the need to build. Battle Royale is also getting a replay system, so players can view their previous match in all sorts of different angles. There are also options for different angles in the settings to help automate that cinematic feel.
The 50 vs. 50 Battle Royale mode will be making a return, as well, turning battle royale into a two-team match.
Survive the World is coming back with new quest lines, XP adjustments, and adjustments to existing quests. A new questline titled Into the Storm: Opening Act is being introduced with a new map and an introduction to the new line of neon skins.
Finally, currency now transfers over between Xbox One, PC, and Mobile. There is no word about whether that same will apply to PlayStation 4, PC, and Mobile.
You can find the full list of changes and updates in Epic’s rather extensive changelog here.
With so many people at Epic now working at Fortnite, I am interested to see how much work they put into getting people to move from Battle Royale to the paid Save the World campaign. If they can get a significant number, that’d be a real boon for them.
