Fortnite: Battle Royale Servers Goes Down For Maintenance

Fortnite: Battle Royale Servers Goes Down For Maintenance

The same publication noted, however, that the purchasable contents available via the third season's Battle Pass does not actually boost a player's chances in doing better in "Fortnite" as they are all merely focused on game cosmetics. The bad news is that you can't play it yet. The update should make things far more responsive, and the changes are due to come to Save the World mode at a later date. As was previously teased, the theme will be space for Season 3, so several of the skins feature astronaut-esque designs.

It is worth mentioning that later in this Reddit thread Epic Games commented, saying that these new items are indeed coming and that it #Leaked a few days prior to them wanting to announce it.

Turbo Building, says Epic in this blog post, lets players hold down their primary fire button and continuously place a pre-selected building piece. You can also turn on the option for Automatic Material Swapping, which, as the name suggests, will automatically switch between your resources if your current material runs out.

Other additions include a hoverboard for the single player Save the World mode, a new orchestral score for Save the World from film composers Marco Beltrami (The Hurt Locker) and Pinar Toprak (Justice League), new Hand Cannon weapon that destroys enemies and structures alike, and improvements to build mode.

Epic Games also made it easier for players to build through large objects, which should alleviate the frustration of being unable to build because the environment got in the way. It comes with 76 items in total. Fortnite or PUBG? Would faster-building mechanics in PUBG be a good idea? Epic says this should allow for "quick defensive structures from flanking with less input and worry about running out of a particular material".

NOTE: Player structures must still be supported by the terrain and other buildings. To improve this, we've changed the network code so cycling through building pieces no longer requires a round trip to Epic's servers.
