Earlier this morning, Epic Games released a brand new State of Development blog, detailing some of the changes and improvements the development team is implementing into the Fortnite Battle Royale mode.
According to the blog – which you can check out by heading to the Epic Games site – the studio has a ton of planned improvements coming to the mode, including adding enabling more regions for Duos and Squads modes, better reporting methods for when team killing occurs, and some other minor tweaks to the game.
As far as some of the bigger updates go, Epic Games has announced that they’re adding new, unique points of interest to the map to fill better space, as well as exploring the implementation of cosmetic items into the game at some point. According to Epic, they are working on remodels for gliders, pickaxes, and characters, and they acknowledge that players have a desire to personalize their characters.
For a look at some more of the proposed changes, check out below, and make sure to check out the blog post for the full list of information:
OTHER ONGOING WORK
Limited Time Modes: We are introducing Limited time modes in December. Limited time modes are temporary experience with special conditions that provide new ways to play and allow us to run fun experiments. We’ll announce what our first limited time mode is soon… it’s going to be EPIC!
Server performance optimizations: To follow up on the performance blog — we’ve made some good progress on optimizing server performance over the last two months. The below image shows the percent of time our servers are “hitching” (missing target frame rate). Solid green means 0% and red is 3% and above.
Fortnite is now available.
