Battle Royale Mode to be Update with More Points of Interest

Battle Royale Mode to be Update with More Points of Interest

The update will be rolling out next week - so get yourselves ready for the next big Fortnite: Battle Royale update!

"[Our map update includes] a bunch of new points of interest, including the city, and a bunch of new named areas on the west side of the map".

"We've also separated the map into more clearly defined, what we call, biomes", said Williamson.

A new developer update for Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is up on Youtube and is one that you don't want to miss. Once the update has been installed, players can expect to see a map with a little more personality, with specific areas that really manage to stand out from one another as opposed to blending into one large landmass.


Lead systems designer Eric Williamson talked about the main features of the upcoming update in a new developer video, revealing that additional points of interest were among the features set to be introduced. Epic will keep looking at the spawn rate of rare loot and ammo, and adjust accordingly.

More "quality of life" improvements are also coming, but the update's not specific on what form those will take in the short term.

Epic says that this Fortnite update should drop sometime next week, and if they follow their usual pattern, full patch notes will be available a couple of days before the update actually releases.
