What technical improvements that will be, we also learn with the patch notes. If you have less than 6GB of available space on your smartphone, you’ll need to download Fortnite again.
What’s the update for Battle Royale mode? This week, a popular feature from Apex Legends comes to Fortnite: Battle Royale – the Reboot Van . Your teammates will be able to revive these vehicles, even though they are already defeated long ago.
In this way even games that have been lost can still be turned. What further content (apart from the technical improvements) will come is not yet known.
What we know: There will be no changes to the Kugler, which is considered too strong and in the opinion of many players urgently needs to be revised. When the changes will come on the Kugler is still unclear. But it should be ready by the next week at the latest.
What’s in the 8.30 update for Save the World? Fortnite’s PvE part will also get new content this week:
- New legendary designer
- New shotgun in steampunk style
- Eliminate and Collect – The Beta Storm is now a permanent mission, with changes made based on community feedback
- A completely new beta storm will come
