Before season three starts, the studio revealed more information about improvements to the game's building mechanics, the pump shotgun, and Battle Pass. In addition to "Turbo Building", this makes the building process fast and simple. With this in mind, Epic notes that it's changed Battle Royale's netcode so that switching building pieces will be less lag-inducing. This content will be distributed throughout the year as you play and reach new tiers of items, but those who purchase the pass will be able to access certain items right away. This means you've got a little less guesswork on what you can build around and through as you're going.
Building is, of course, one of the core features of Fortnite, setting it apart from other similarly styled games. Epic said that players will now be able to "paint" those pieces in more quickly, which should be particularly handy when you're trying to throw up a hasty defense or build a stairway to heaven. Here's a full breakdown of the new cosmetics.
However, this release got pushed back by a day - meaning Fortnite season 3 will launch on the day Epic Games usually rolls out its updates.
Fortnite season 3 will replace season 2's medieval flavour for a space theme, and the Battle Pass will also offer 30 extra tiers of loot.
Pete Nub, technical lead of Fortnite: Battle Royale at Epic Games, confirmed back blings will have no effect on actual gameplay but instead will be purely cosmetic. What we don't know as of yet is if we're have the option to use the Raptor backpack if we don't even have the skin unlocked.
Beyond season 3, one of the most exciting updates for console players is newly-added support for 60 FPS. Making the system weekly allows more players to take advantage of it.
Snapchat: 'We Completely Understand' the Redesign Hate
During a conference speech last week, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel essentially said "get used it", when discussing the update. Next, they should select the sticker icon, it's the one that looks like a sticky note with one corner peeling up.
