Major Update Coming To Fortnite Including Map Changes
Posted Jan 13, 2018 by DarthHazard
The first major update of the year is coming to Fortnite next week, and Epic Games have revealed various new content that will be arriving alongside the update.
The update, primarily focusing on the map will add a range of brand new points of interest to the Fortnite Battle Royale map according to Eric Williamson, Lead Systems Designer at Epic. The development update video (included below) also gives players a sneak peek at the new City, Motel, Boneyard and other points of interest that will be added this update. The new additions to the map are to be added to the west side of the map as this part of the map is considered too light in terms of points of interests.
Additionally, Epic want to make certain areas feel more distinct and have made some adjustments to make Moisty Mires feel more "swampier" and the mountains "more mountainous". The development team have also looked at implementing new "quality of life improvements" to the game although no information regarding on what these changes are were shared.
