Fortnite Battle Royale map update drops next week

Fortnite Battle Royale map update drops next week

The latest Fortnite: Battle Royale developer update video has been published to let players know of a big update coming next week.

A new update is set to arrive next week for Fortnite Battle Royale.

Of course, there will also be additional "quality of life improvements," though what exactly they remain a mystery. The quick two-minute development update goes over some high level changes you can expect to see when the Fortnite update goes live, with much more detailed patch notes expected to come sometime next week. To balance this, Epic Games will add new named places across the map such as the City which is also mildly showcased in the video. This is largely prompted by the game's free price tag, alongside Epic Games' regular weekly updates ensuring the game is as polished as can be.


Existing locations are also being updated to make them more like unique biomes, including swamps and mountains. For a game that could have just as quickly been forgotten within weeks after launch, its Battle Royale mode has launched the game into the stratosphere and has been a mainstay among the most prominent titles out there.

The NVIDIA ShadowPlay Highlights feature is accessible to those PC players who own a GeForce GTX 650 graphics card or something more advanced.
