Fortnite: Epic announces a string of updates

'The floor is lava' among a dozen temporary game modes coming to Fortnite soon

While these new additions are great and unique, many "Fortnite" Battle Royale players are anxious about the number of guns in the game.

It was not that long ago that "Fornite" reached a peak player count of over three million which also caused major server issues during that same weekend as the number of people triggered several server outages. The company issued a statement on its official website, explaining the situation, saying... And we also shipped v2.3.0 with significant bugs. We don't consider either acceptable. Anything that takes some of the sting out of dying super early sounds good to me (why yes, I do suck at Fortnite: Battle Royale). Epic also addressed some of the new technical issues the game's latest patch introduced.

According to the update on the site, the developers state that the network code is getting closer to the point where Fortnite will be running at a solid 20hz serverside from the beginning to the end of the match so that there's a solid gameplay experience from when players log into the game's lobby all the way to when they complete a match.

The best part is that this setting will be available on all console hardware, meaning both the PS4/PS4 Pro and Xbox One/Xbox One X. Epic notes "this 60 fps mode is tuned for each console to maximize frame rate while minimizing loss of visual quality".

Another feature coming within the month is an optional 60 fps mode for console Fortnite players.

Considering the competitive edge that Fortnite Battle Royale brings the table - it makes sense that the team would focus on making the game as smooth as possible to ensure players have a better gaming experience ensuring those ideal headshots and high-intensity firefights. As always, the developer will continue to add new content and features.

But it's not all under the hood changes coming to Fortnite. The Vault will allow the development team to control the weapon pool while adding new weapons. Right now the developers are prototyping some brand new weapon types and consumables, along with expanding the melee types in the game.
