Fortnite Battle Royale news and updates: what’s new in Fortnite

by admin February 23, 2018 at 6:51 pm

You’ve probably noticed, but Battle Royale games are having something of a moment. One of the biggest of the Battle Royale titles available at the moment is Fortnite Battle Royale from Epic Games.

Available for free on PC, Xbox One and PS4, Fortnite Battle Royale supports up to 100 players at a time in a game, either playing as individuals or in squads of up to four. When starting up, you’re thrown onto an island with no weapons or armor and you must scavenge for supplies and fight for your life to be the last man or squad standing at the end of the game.

Like most Battle Royale games, Fortnite is split into matches of varying length with a map that shrinks as the match progresses, forcing players closer together. 

Epic Games actively works on Fortnite Battle Royale, making changes through patches and updates. Here you’ll be able to find the latest changes to the game. 

What’s the latest Fortnite update?

Season 3 is now live

Epic Games has now set season three of Fortnite into the wild and this is everything that you can expect to get from it.

60 FPS

Console players using PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X will now have access to a 60 FPS mode. It’s going to be switched on by default and when it’s on you might see graphical quality dip a little so if you’d rather have the best looks instead you can always turn it off. 

Improved building

Some changes have been made to building that should make it more enjoyable for players to use. 

The first of these changes is a new Turbo Building Mode which allows you to, as the name would suggest, build at a much faster rate. Now you can hold down your primary fire button and effectively paint objects into the game world. Epic Games states that it sees this as being useful for fast-paced defensive building as well as constructing bridges as you run across them.
