Epic has outlined an entire bunch of content material coming to Fortnite: Battle Royale, providing specifics on updates which might be each simply across the nook and over the horizon. Briefly, when you’ve been having fun with their 100-player free-for-all, you’ll be able to anticipate extra of nearly the whole lot the mode has to supply.
Over on the Epic blog, the developer has offered particulars about an entire bunch of modifications coming to the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite. Whereas the bottom sport has gamers constructing forts and dealing collectively to struggle off waves of zombies, Battle Royale forges a really comparable path to video games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. As much as 100 gamers get dropped into a giant map, with only a pickaxe to defend themselves and forage crafting supplies. All the pieces else you want will be discovered hidden throughout the map, together with weapons, grenades and even traps.
With the subsequent replace, Epic is addressing the whole lot from high quality of life modifications to some extremely requested alterations to the sport’s map.

The map is already fairly massive and decently populated, however there aren’t sufficient key areas to attract gamers to totally different factors of the map with out feeling such as you’re touchdown on a dozen rivals. A brand new small metropolis is an instance of this, with a group of multi-floored buildings serving as a draw for gamers in want of provides.
