As every week, the new update of the Epic Game battle royale has finally arrived, we are obviously talking about Fortnite 8.50 which brings changes to the Royal Battle, Save the World and Creative Mode . As you know , today’s update comes with a slight delay, probably caused by the desire to match it with the crossover event between Fortnite and Avengers: Endgame (of which you can read the review at this address ). Let’s not waste any more time, though, and let’s see together what brought us the Fortnite 8.50 update.
To start, we have the Endagame time mode, in which we can take on the role of Thanos and his Chitauri invading the island, or of the Marvel heroes. Both teams regenerate on elimination, until the opposing faction completes its goal. On one side is the hero team. Heroes regenerate on elimination until the opposing team has found all the Infinity Gems. The heroes begin with a treasure map that leads directly to a mythical Avengers object. The goal of the hero team is to destroy the Chitauri army and defeat Thanos.
The Chitauri invaders begin with a powerful laser rifle, a grenade anti-structure attack and a jetpack that allows them to fly for short periods. The first of the Chitauri who will conquer an Infinity Gem will be transformed into Thanos. Thanos has a powerful punch, a destructive laser attack and the ability to make high leaps and then destroy everything he encounters when he touches the ground again.
Whenever he gains an Infinity Gem, Thanos’s abilities become more powerful and the Chitauri gain health. The effect of the gems is as follows:
- Gem of Reality (red) = health and doubled shields (1000 -> 2000)
- Soul Gem (orange) = activated absorption (gives Thanos only shields)
- Gemma of the Mind (yellow) = doubles the height of the jumps
- Space Gem (blue) = triples the area of Earth’s Crash, damage x6
- Gem of Time (green) = considerable rejection added to each hit, damage x3
- Power Gem (purple) = x6 laser damage
If Thanos and the Chitauri find all six Gems of Infinity, the heroes can no longer regenerate. If Thanos dies, one of the Chitauri still alive will take his place. The goal of Thanos and his army is to find the stones and eliminate the remaining heroes.
As for the Creative mode , the option to add more rounds has been added. You can now take advantage of the “Phase Mode” which allows you to activate and deactivate collisions with objects and the game world. A pirate ship has been added to the prefabricated buildings. In addition, two new Isola portals were added in the Creative Center and Playground. The total ones, however, have been reduced from 8 to 6.
As for Save the World , instead, new characters have been added, Hawkeye Cotton Tail and Penny Bunny, the Bowling-Bowling weapon and new missions to the higher levels of Montespago. Returns also Tempensta beta – Supply, to which new primary objectives have been added.
There are also a number of bug fixes and variations that you can find at this address. Tell us, what do you think of all the innovations introduced with the Fortnite 8.50 update? Are you satisfied with what Epic Games has done, or would you have liked anything else?
