Fortnite Battle Royale Map Getting Revamped Next Week

Fortnite Battle Royale Map Getting Revamped Next Week

Epic Games has outlined the changes coming to the Fortnite: Battle Royale map next week in a new developer update.

With the end of the holiday event, the Christmas trees and associated treasures will also naturally be disappearing, and the team hopes the new treasure chests that will be populating the map alongside the new points of interest will help to fill out the loot drops in a more even way. Beside the new city, players will get many new points of interest, including a motel and a scrapyard.

An exact date for the update was not given other than "next week", so stay tuned for more information about the patch and when it's due to drop.

"The swamp feels swampier, the mountains feel more mountain-y. There's also a bunch of quality-of-life improvements". On November 30, Epic Games, "Fortnite" developer, revealed the new #City that would be added, and while players got really excited for it, they had to wait almost two months for it to come to the game. According to Fortnite Battle Royale's lead systems designer, Epic wants items to be "distributed evenly so that there isn't too much additional rare loot in [a] match".

With smaller additions of guns, items, and special modes coinciding with these weekly updates, the game has received a steady stream of content since its release.

Epic says they have separated the map into what they say are more clearly defined biomes making each area feel more unique.
