Fortnite - Patch 3.0.0

Fortnite is a game that keeps developing. Studio Epic Games, aware of the success their online shooter achieved, keeps adding new attractions, time trial game modes, and other improvements. Just take a look at information from the previous week – seven days ago the title received the update to 2.5.0 version, which added events that are related to the Lunar New Year and balance the game. In last Monday we learned about the details of the third, up to this moment the biggest season in terms of competition in Fortnite: Battle Royale. However, there’s more. On the official page of the production, there is an announcement of yet another patch that is marked as 3.0.0. It will focus most of all on the building mode.




The first attraction that 3.0.0 will introduce to Fortnite and Fortnite: Battle Royale, is the so-called “turbo-building”. It is an option that one can turn on and off in main menu of the game. Thanks to that we can create construction and at the same time shoot or move. It will greatly facilitate the process of building fortifications or quick escape with the use of, for example, stairs and ramps built at the same time as running away. This option (as well as others, described later on in the article) can be seen in action in the video below.



Another new option we will be able to turn on and off in the main menu of the game is automated resource switch. Thanks to that we will be able to carry on with building once one resource is out of stock, because they will be automatically replaced with others. Thanks to that we don’t have to worry that in the middle of preparing fortifications we will be empty-handed. Together with “turbo-building” it will make construction building much faster, easier, and more pleasing.




The authors of 3.0.0 patch intend to introduce the possibility to build constructions that will pass through larger objects. Up to this moment if there was an obstacle on our way in the form of, let’s say, vehicles, rocks, or trees, it was impossible to make a construction. It often caused a lot of frustrations in the gameplay. Now we just need to make sure the foundations are solid. As a result, the gameplay will gain some dynamics.

Improved tempo of the game can be also guaranteed thanks to yet another improvement that we can find in 3.0.0 patch. It will be a small chance in the code that will speed up the process of scrolling down or up the list of buildings available to construct. This change is a tribute mostly for the users of controllers, who repeatedly complained it is too slow and unpredictable. This change will firstly appear in Fortnite: Battle Royale. However, works are underway to implement this option to PvE campaign as well.

Fortnite and Fortnite: Battle Royale are available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Last night some rumors appeared that the work of Epic Games Studio will be available on Nintendo Switch console as well. Will they appear to be real? We shall find out soon enough.
